Nice italian restaurant

We had a very nice family lunch here when we made our daytrip to Acqui Terme. The kitchen was a bit slow and the restaurant itself is quite small so if you are coming with a larger group make it sure, that you reserve a table.

After staying 2 weeks near Acqui Terme and having some amazing food experiences, this was the only place that dissappointed, and in a BIG way. A menu with a curry pasta or risotto made with Basmati rice??? should have been a warning and we should have left. The antipasto misti was dried up frittata and the rest deep fried stuff... More

The octopus potato starter was mainly potato chunks in a PLASTIC pot heated in the microwave. Disgusting. The black pasta with tomato and zucchini was oily, tasteless and overcooked. I left most of it untouched. The fish ravioli with garlic and parsly my husband ordered looked prefabricated and ordinary. He ate it because he was hungry. I refuse to eat... More

We were fortunate to get one of the last tables and then there were people waiting after us - a good sign. We creally liked the atmosphere, exposed brick and nice lighting.

It felt like we were the only British visitors in Acqui Terme and it was tricky to find a restaurant open on a thursday night in late October. Nevertheless even though we were the only customers, we had a warm welcome and a lovely meal. The antipasti was particularly good. If we ever return we will go back without fail.
