We ate here several years ago and it was so good, we ate here twice. This year we did a repeat. We ate once with friends and then again by ourselves. Both times this year, the food was as good as we remembered. The starters were fantastic and the main dishes were outstanding as well. The wine list is extensive... More

Casual restaurant with very good piemontese food. Very nice selections of wines by the glass, and very reasonable of price. There is a big terrace, and a small one, with only tables for 2. We had one of those tables, and we had a great time. Very friendly service too.

Was recommended to us during the visit of one of the wineries. We had to ask in La Morra tourist info to find the place but we were happy finally to did so. Cuisine is literally fantastic and affordable. Great offer of local winess for fair prices. Lack of English menu is more then compensated by willing, supporting and kind... More

Il Vignaiolo, in the heart of the Nebbiolo grapes wine region, is an excellent place for wining and dining at outstanding level and decent prices. The menu is (per fortuna!) not too large and the dishes are well prepared, well presented and well tasting. We had the 5-course menu degustazione, to be seen as the masterproof of chef Luciano. Our... More

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here last week. There was a lot of confusion over our reservation. Our hotel claimed they made a reservation for us whereas the restaurant said they did not. I have no idea who is telling the truth but the result was we were eventually seated by the front door in front of the refrigerators... More

This is everything you want in a restaurant. Although they were rushed of their feet the service was fantastic. Not only that the food was top notch as well as being family friendly. They were very considerate to our children's needs i.e. taking their order first and giving them colouring pens etc. As a 'foodie' couple we always are on... More

This is a great combination of genuine local food with a twist. The menu was small but seasonal and fresh with some very interesting options even for vegetarians. The service was outstanding although the wine rec was not that convincing. The peace and quiet surrounding the restaurant was paradise! Will go back!

From the wonderful breads to the surprise plate of cookies they serve at the end, every course of our meal at this restaurant was completely delicious. The pasta dishes were delicate and flavorful and the local Barolo wine that we were recommended with dinner was outstanding. Don't miss a meal here!

Food was pretty low/average: nothing bad or badly executed, but really simple: lacking of some "soul" The wine list is pretty impressive, but the guy in charge apparently don't know much when it gets to particular questions ( I was willing this night to order something really special, but i finally sticked to something i knew, much cheaper...). The guy... More

I never go to Piedmonte without having at least one dinner here. The food is absolutely stunning, no matter what you order. The menu priced 32-33 EURO gives you a topclass experience of the Langhe kitchen. Ourstanding winelist with well priced wines. Fantastic desserts, and my favorite here is for sure the semifreddo. They also have some very nice rooms... More
