Worth a deviation from the highway

Please AVOID going to this place on your first day after arriving in Italy. We did this for our 2-week culinary road trip in Italy and for the next two weeks it was so hard just to find places like this--even we've been to several Michelin-starred restaurants.

You know there must be good cooking because no one will ever run over this place by chance. If "in the middle of nowhere" fits for a restaurant, it must be this one.

About thirty miles from Alexandria, in the countryside on the border from Lombardy and Piedmont on the banks of the river Po, in existence for over thirty years this restaurant reported the best Italian food guides. Environment a bit dated but real kitchen of territory formerly dominated meat and fish from the lake. Cheese trolley with over seventy-quality, locally. Pasta... More
