Wonderful small restaurant

Great place, great food! Small restaurant that takes care with each and every dish. We were here during a truffle festival nearby and the waitress added a huge amount of truffles to my pasta. A much smaller amount would have tasted equally good and the cost of the truffles for 3 was well over $100... read more

We had been here a few years ago and loved it- and it is still just as great. Very nice and helpful staff. Every dish was delicious, including the gnocchi, pasta, meat and dessert, just like your Italian grandma would have made it (if you have one...) . A real gem!

After a shaky start, the blond behind the counter was quite brusk, we had an absolutely delicious dinner enhanced by a friendly and expert waitstaff. The placed was packed so make sure you make reservations. Closed Tuesdays & Thursdays.

We went to this restaurant given the good reviews in TripAdvisor and as it appeared in the slow food guide (but that should certainly be reviewed). I cant remember of a time where I have been as poorly treated as here - and looking back should just had simply left. The three servers that attended our table were not only... More

Stopped there our first day in Piedmont but the restaurant was full for lunch. Made a reservation for the next day and did not regret it. The restaurant is set on a small hilltop, in the hamlet of Santa Maria, among the vineyards, with outside dining when the wether permits it . The food is excellent, and generously served, with...

This is an amazing value for money deal. Speed of service, quality of food and wine list are difficult to match at these prices anywhere in the world. Do not expect warm homely Italian ambiance or abundant smiles from the staff and you will depart even more satisfied.

The food was nice, the place is small and very comfortable. Looks like a tipical Italian but it's that with a special modern food. The price is very fair and there are some options of good wine and good prices.

We had some of the best food in a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere. The menu is a great deal, you can pick two starters, a pasta dish, main course and desert for just 35EUR (if I remember correctly). All dishes were exceptionally well prepared and presented, we've just booked to come back this year again. Can't wait!

We have been in La Morra many times in July and this restaurant has been always closed on July. Luckily this summer 2015 it was open and we booked a table there good time in advance. The food was WOW. We went there once more on our holiday. This restaurant is now our favorite one in La Morra!

I am always impressed when foreigners are treated like locals. Especially with the challenges of arriving in a large group. The kitchen was even able to put out a little "stuzzichini"(appetizer) for 15 of us! In addition, they allowed us to all select all of our courses individually. Our Waitress was a saint! We had a great meal, incredible wine... More
