My husband and I went here upon a recommendation from our hotel. It's a good atmosphere in the osteria, they don't have an English menu, but we received good help with translation of the menu. The food came in an ok pace and they paid us good attention. We had prosciutto & abergine for a starter - both lovely! Followed... More

We recently enjoyed a superb meal here. We had four courses from the set menu costing 32 euros, an aubergine, tomato millefeuille, gnocchi, veal, and pannacotta cotta. The restaurant was full of locals. Slow food at its very best. The local restaurant everyone would like as their own.

Had both the best Sicilian prawns and rabbit ever. Slow food at its best. Great Barolo. Staff seemed a bit tired but warmed up through the evening.

Not Recommended! The food that came out of the kitchen (eventually) was delicious! However, the distain of both our waiter and the manager and the resultant delays in receiving both our second course and dessert made this a most unpleasant dining experience. Although the manager’s station was only 5-6 meters from our table and the manager came to the table... More

We discussed wine choices with the somm, who suggested a great half bottle of Barolo(best of ~8 barolos i tasted... More

Like vanderluyden, it "pains me to write this review." Some summary points in case you don’t want to read my entire review: - Food was excellent, but we didn’t “feel the love” from the staff, meaning they obviously did not appreciate our patronage (too many places in the Piemonte that do, so why bother? I can go to Paris if... More
