“Sublime culinary experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

This restaurant is unmissable if you are visiting La Morra, and if you are not make a detour! The views over the Langhe wine area are amazing but surpassed by the quality of the food. Whilst it's not the cheapest meal you will ever have we found it exceptional value for money given the standard of service and variety of food on offer. One of the best meals we have ever had.

“The essence of italian cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

A second visit to this excellent La Morra Restaurant situated on the flank of the hill overlooking the Langhe vineyards. In daylight the view from the terrace and the dining room is really beautiful. The service is impeccable and friendly and the food on offer is top notch Piemontese fare. The wine list could be described as extensive, which, as a matter of fact, is an understatement.
On a March Saturday night the house was packed, noisy and charming. To start we had ravioli del plin with three meats, and veal tongue in green sauce, delicious! The main courses were oven roasted goat of the Langhe and veal tagliata with black truffle, both excellent. From the huge wine list we picked Nebbiolo 2010 by Giuseppe Rinaldi: a perfect match for the meal. To end the meal: an apple pie with cardamom ice cream, and couple of pieces of cheese from the trolley (castelmagno and gorgonzola).
Courteous friendliness was the norm of the service. Indeed, there was no weak link in this dining experience. Highly recommended!

“Best value in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Now for the fourth time in four years, we visit this gem in the fall. Of course primarily to taste the Alba Truffels. But also to savour this wonderful restaurants good cooking. The truffels were not in top shape this year. Too warm and only little rain they say. But the rest of the kitchen was never the less good as usual. And the wine list here is just fenomenal and prized very reasonably. Will have to come again...

“Nice choice for an elegant dinner, terrific wine list”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The setting here is fantastic as is the service. The food was generally good but short of excellent. The wine list is the best in the region that we came across. Deep selection and very fair prices. Overall, an excellent place for dinner and I must when in the region.
