Piemonte is not Tuscany and Alba may be attracting more and more tourists, that doesn't necessarily mean that the restaurants start to behave differently.

Although this Trattoria had been recommended to us we had never been until we noticed a Jazz evening with a seafood menu sponsored by 2 of our favourite producers Ca del Baio and Deltetto. Their wines complemented the menu perfectly, particularly the Riesling and Pinot Nero respectively which are not commonly found in the region but always on our shopping... More

We were a group who dined outdoors at Aldente. The service was appalling, the waiters and head waiter were so arrogant and rude. We waited an hour for the food, no one was interested in serving us and when the food finally came, the risotto was terrible, the baked potatoes were fried (!). The bill was wrong and the head...

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Had the option to sit inside or outside in the square, we chose outside and it was a good atmosphere. Had a look inside and it was really nicely decorated and comfortable. The food was good, particularly the seafood cone, which was a generous size serve for an entree and the lamb ribs which by Australian... More

We went there 4 person for a dinner. We paid up to 35 euros per person and the truffle was not tasty at all, it was like we eat salad, how is it possible to be named as a truffle restaurant??!

Plus: it's very central and the environement is very well designed Minus: the waiters made several errors in the orders. The white truffle was charged much more respect to the other restaurants (3.5€/gr instead of 2.5€/gr in that period)

We were taken out as guest of a major local company. My first experience of Piedmont cuisine. Positive indeed. We were a big party but the service was suitably swift, the waiters/waitress were welcoming and made our stay enjoyable. I tried flan with mushrooms, wild boar and what was described as "chocolate sausage" - came in big slices - like... More

We did a day trip to Alba from Serralunga; we a wanted to visit the old town and experience one of the towns many fine restaurants. However, as we suspected, like other places, many businesses were closed for holidays, restaurants included. So after walking around for a while we settled on Aldente Trattoria, manly because it seemed a little off... More

Just in the center of Alba you find this lovely restaurant, facing a little square with an open air archaeological site and a Church. This is just behind the Street where you find any kind of shops. Next to it there is also a car park (you pay ca. € 1 per hour) Sits are inside and outside under big... More
