Simple but delicious

The agnolotti plin were the best we've had during our week in Italy. Meal was simple, but delicious. The town of Bra was larger than we expected and we enjoyed a wall thru town after lunch.

Great location in center of town. Very friendly and professional staff - they know their product. Pets welcome. The menu is different daily. There is a menufisso or fixed price menu if you want the complete package. I had the lardo as an appetizer - superb. I went for a second of coneglio (rabbit) next and it was among the... More

Great place, great vibe, food is amazing in its simplicity and honesty but they don't make a massive ceremony about it It's not super expensive but as you would expect you'd be able to buy cheaper meals but not with the authenticity. Service was friendly but brisk.

We had lunch in this legendary slow food restaurant en route from Turin to Langhe in June 2015. Glorious food, friendly service, and laid-back atmosphere - one the highlights of our trip.

We have enjoyed a dinner here in the truffle season of 2014. Although the restaurant is relatively large, we could only reserve for lunch. FYI; pretty much all restaurants in this region are fully booked during this season, so if you want to make sure you do not miss out on a dinner , you should book way ahead.Lunch you... More

This restaurant is part of the Slow Food site in Bra. We went here for lunch (outside) and had a very good experience - great service, great food, good wines. I expect that I would have given a 5 rating is we had taken the lunch inside.

We came without reservation and stumbled across this place having had an uninspiring wander around the ancient city. But tucked away in this courtyard location is the real hidden gem of Bra. Slow food is there mantra and even though they indicated the kitchen would close soon we were not at all rushed. The vegetable tart was outstanding, more of... More

Bra has a Slow Food story and this restaurant is a strong part of it. The food is excellent, the atmosphere pleasurable (open internal court) in the wines match very well the food. Bra is a nice small city so a visit is well deserved if you are in the Langhe. And a lunch at Boccondivino is a must. A... More

The great thing of this small restaurant is the quality of the food (vitello tonnato, brasato al Barolo and rabbit) compared to the total bill which is more than acceptable. The wines by the glass are also a good choice. This is a great way to promote Italian quality food! Well done.
