I was born in Biella, but from my youth I come here just a few weeks every year. My house is just at walking distance from this restaurant, but I only discovered yesterday. I had some family visiting us and we decided to have lunch out. In August in Italy it is not easy to find a place. So when... More

This restaurant is a little or very old fashioned..so it could make you run away. But the food is great. Specially the bread made by them..while you wait for your food. It is time to change the decor!!

We entered the restaurant with 30 clients, as I manage group tours. The staff was very friendly and aimed to please. They were very well organized and we were seated and served wine and water immediately.

We went here for a Sunday lunch and it definitely exceeded our expectations. The greeting was warm and friendly and we had uniformly excellent service from our (English-speaking) waiter throughout the meal.

I recently visited the restaurant with family and girlfriend. It was my birthday and I totally loved the place. The food is great and the staff really nice. Beside the posh setting, the atmosphere is warm and friendly. The prices are a little bit high if compared to the nigh restaurants, but you pay for valuable food.

Elegant setting, refined service and great food. Interesting to taste the flavour of the dishes they propose. Good quality of the meat too. It is reccomended also to have a quiet conversation during the meal, it is a very peaceful place.

Food was good, at least they had broader vegetarian choice. Had sparkling Italian wine- was good. Food was equally good, Risotto was little let down, otherwise everything else was delicious.
