The restaurant I Castelli offers a traditional Piedmontese cuisine but interpreted with a modern twist. In autumn all the typical dishes are based on truffles exclusively from Alba. The wine list holds in store genuine surprises. If you like to enjoy even with your eyes, do not miss the new Restaurant I Castelli, on Alba's rooftops. An unique space, with an incredible (amazing) view, where you can savor the Langhe's culinary excellence and taste the finest wines that made Piedmont famous in the world. From 2014 it has 2 forks on Michelin guide.

I went in the hotel restaurant because it was a bit late and tired, so i decided not to go outside for the dinner. I should say it was a great experience, food was very good, and they have a very nice wine list. Food was very well prepared, and the restaurant itself, is a very nice location, on... read more

We had a wonderful meal at the top of the i Castelli Hotel. The staff are attentive, the food is delicious, and the chairs are comfortable. They have an excellent wine list from the region and are quite knowledgeable about the options. Wonderfully fresh ingredients prepared beautifully.

We arrived at the height of truffle season and didn't have a reservation for dinner. By sheer luck, we were staying in Hotel I Castelli just on the edge of the center of Alba. They have a restaurant on the 4th floor with a view of Alba. If was completely booked (so was every restaurant in downtown). But, if we... More

This restaurant is on the roof of a hotel with views of the surrounding hills. The agnolotti del plin was the best we had in Alba (every restaurant in Alba serves this traditional dish) the stuffed guinea fowl was flavorful and developed, and the veal cheek was absolutely out of this world!

My husband and I dined at Hotel I Castelli on October 15th. The choices were varied and each of my selections was met with enthusiasm by our waiter. :) In truth, both were very good; veal with tuna and caper sauce for a starter and sea bream with tomatoes and olives for my main course. Both had wonderful flavors and... More

You'd think a hotel restaurant, situated in a basement, would be mediocre. Not so the Castelli. Seasonal ingredients, cooked to perfection, a great wine list, plus subtle service all add up to a memorable experience every time (4 so far) we've eaten here.

You may only want to choose this hotel restaurant if you are short of time, having just arrived, and unable to find an alternative. But the food is good, if the ambiance is lacking due to lack of clientele

As we were staying in the hotel where this restaurant is located we decided to stay out of the rain and eat "at home". The meal was excellent. A refined take on a local dish. My husband had an excellent steak - tender and tasty. I loved the use of herbs and appreciated the reasonable portions provided so that I... More
