If what you are looking for is traditional pimontese food, cooked in an excellent way, you are in the right place. On the menu you can basically find all the main specialties from piedmont: do not miss tajarin, a sort of pasta (tagliatelle) prepared by using 40 yolks, and brasato, a tasty veal roast prepared with barolo wine.

I was directed to this restaurant (after all not far from my hotel, into Bra ancient center) with my colleague, during a business trip in Bra. We thus attended it for two consecutive nights (also because, being low season, the other best restaurants in Bra were all closed). All the food I've tasted in the two nights it was good... More

We went with our family for Xmas time meeting Nice people but the quality of the food is an average one, such as the resto fitting We probably came with higher expectation after reading TripAdvisor review...

We visited this restaurant during white truffle festival in Piemonte and i can honestly say that here it was the best value for money. Great food, innovative menu-we ate a combination of white and black truffle dishes and very good service. The location is also special, in the same place where the Slow food movement started.

This is the cradle of the “Slow Food” movement started by Carlo Petrini in 1986, in reaction to the Mc Donald-led fast food invasion of Italy. The movement promotes traditional cooking using ingredients produced locally. We were served a fantastic lunch consisting of chicken breast with balsamic vinegar, yellow peppers with garlic and anchovies sauce, “40 egg yolk” home-made pasta... More

We made reservations after hearing how busy this restaurant was. They opened for lunch that Tuesday at 12:30. We were seated immediately, and tables filled up FAST! Everything about our meal was delightful. The starters were cued to the local and imaginative, and the mains were full of flavor and perfectly cooked. We decided on two half bottles of wine... More

Delicious, delicious, delicious. I ate here with people I was meeting for the first time, and the atmosphere was relaxing and inviting, making the meet up a happy success. I tried a couple of very rich dishes - something I don't normally do - but who cares. It was autumn in Piemonte and that means bagna cauda and the melted... More

Everything on every plate was close to perfect. The starting plate of raw meat, sausage and lard was one of the most memorable and freshest plates of simple goodness I've eaten in a country known for such things. My friend's pasta (Tajarin) was superb (though not quite as good as the Old Tower's in Barbaresco), and the truffles my other... More
