“Long slow lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Superb food over a whole afternoon accompanied by great local wines. It was like a degustation. The staff (or owners, not sure) were really lovely. We vegetarians were extremely well catered for and the meat eaters were very happy too. It was so inexpensive we couldn't believe it. The place was colourful and cosy with a great feel. We ate such a lot but felt very comfortable afterwards. An experience I won't forget.

“Great value local cuisine with regional wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

A 2 hour four course lunch here for 15€ topped off an amazing day in Castagnole Monferrato. The dining rooms were brightly decorated and filled with interesting art pieces. Antipasti was a medieval recipe - veal with salsa verde and egg mousse with chicken livers. Primi was tagliolini with mushrooms. Secondi was veal with carrots and dessert was a baked pear with sugar. The above were all enjoyed with some Barbera and Ruche Di CM wine. The espresso was good too. One of my travelling companions was vegetarian and they modified the menu for her. The restaurant was a short walk to the centre where we caught a local bus to Asti.

“Unforgettable lunch, proper off-the-beaten-track experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

Excellent family own restaurant, where you have a set menu of 20,25 or 30 euros per person to taste organic local products. All the food is prepared by the mother of the family who is an excellent chef and the products come as far as one village away! Yummy fresh vegetables and amazing meats. They produce also their own wine which is also excellent. Beautiful house and great decoration in the ceillings and living room. We had lunch in the garden outside, having a proper summer lunch on the shade of the fruit trees they have! Don't miss it!
