Classic case of watching where the locals go for lunch

It was about 1PM, and we had just finished out visit to Cavour Castle, and we wanted lunch. Nearby La Salinera restaurant didn't show much from the outside, but very well dressed young professionals headed inside for their daily lunch, and so we followed. This is a classic case of just watching... read more

A lovely "Osteria" in Grinzane Cavour. Our first stop in Piemone, I have been there before and nothing has changed, no that's not true, it is even better. The four of us sat at one of the wooden tables on the first floor, lots of chatter around us, water, bread, the first thing you get on the table together with... More

We had toured the the castle at Grinzane Cavour and then had a nice lunch at La Salinera, a very small restaurant across from the central parking lot. I can't find any photos but I had some carne crudo, a local delicacy that consists of hand-chopped, high quality beef, essentially steak tartare substitute olive oil and lemon for a raw... More

After going through the Grinzane Castle and Langhe Museum, we stopped in for a quick lunch. Crowded with locals, we found a nice table against the open windows in front. Everyone at the table opted for the lunch specials of Gnocchi with Tomato Tonello and Sausage with Vegetables. The Gnocchi was homemade and very good, although filling. The Sausage and... More

We happened on this place after looking at the castle. It was packed with locals. They cleared off a table in the area across from the kitchen and we sat down. I had the inclusive menu with primi, secondi, water, quartino of wine and an espresso for 11.5 euros. It was very good and an amazing value. Recommended.

Ate there last Friday, with two celiacs. Had warned them on this occasion, so they were able to cook some bread for the non-gluten guests. The antipasti were traditional piemontese, and copious. The pasta came in a bath. Well, no-one could finish theirs. We could have done without the main course - a milanese escalope with potatoes for the celiacs,... More
