Choose another restaurant, that'all I can say. Unfreandly waiters, awful price/quality ratio of food. Not worth your time and money.

The tratt looks inviting enough, but as the meal progresses, it's obvious that neither the kitchen nor the service staff are trying very hard. Service is peremptory, and the presentation and the taste of the food are mediocre at best. The only memorable thing about the meal was an above-average Barbera d'Asti, which naturally came at an elevated price. If... More

We were a bit nervous about eating here having read some of the very poor reviews on TA. But for us we had a good experience and would certainly go back. We just had a 1 course lunch of nicely made fresh pasta, a glass of Nebbiolo and a coffee. So not much could go wrong really. And Pink Floyd... More

We were a big Group of eleven People and we all loved the food! I probably had the best Pasta Bolognese ever. The waiter was attentive and quick, so we never had to wait Long for drinks nor Food. The Restaurant itself is super cute, small but cozy. I would return anytime.

You may succumb to Aldente Trattoria's cute checked napkins with the bow tie pasta hand tied to each one. Or the cones of grissini (bread sticks) on each table but resist and keep on walking. There's little good I can relay about this place which is a shame as finding a cute little trattoria on a back street in a... More

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. Trattoria aldente is a perfect illustration of what I mean. For a number of reasons they are at risk of becoming a prey for the tourist herds: they are well located, the restaurant has a quaint...

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...
