A good place for families. Always crowed with local people. Very good food for a fair price. The waiters are fast and quality is amazing. If you make a reservation for fish the cook prepare it very good.

Our hotel was air conditioned but did not have a restaurant and Arco was a short walk away and also had air conditioning. We booked and in the early evening, off we went to dinner there and what a...

This restaurant coped with 12 of us as a group without a problem. Rabbit, veal, offal, grilled vegetables, excellent wines of the region, everyone had a meal to remember. To finish, a decaffenato machiatto . Service excellent.

Slow food is an italian food movement that stands for locally sourced, bio diverse and small farm ingredients. Osteria dell Arco follows this principal and does it well. Best pasta I had in Italy, and terrific food all around. Great place to eat in Alba.

We stopped here for lunch after walking in the town. The front door is set back into a court yard so you may walk by. The setting was fine and the service was accommodating. We had a light antipasto and gnocchi with funghi with a local wine. The charge was 30 Euros. The restaurant was filled with locals. We recommend.

My husband, 1 1/2 year old daughter and I had our "Thanksgiving" dinner at this wonderful restaurant. We did not have reservations but they were able to easily seat us and were very nice with the child bringing her some finger pasta quickly before she got fussy while we took our time to look at the menu. The courses were... More
