No highlights, apart from the beef tartare. We had a choice of entrees, including the white truffle tagliolini (€50), and a few different mains: the "bollito" was excellent but any other dish has shown no surprises. Wine is what you may expect from the Region,...More

In a small town, and without much fanfare, Il Centrale is a culinary delight. We had an outstanding meal there. The food was so well prepared, so fresh and so deliberately perfect that we were delighted and thrilled. Of course, the regional wine propelled the...More

Take a look at the menu and you'll get only half what they offer. Yes, it has all the traditional Piepontese kitchen, but it's all how they make the portions: very modern and even playful dishes. What a joy! I have visited twice in this...More

Exceptionally good food and very friendly service. The restaurant appears recently to have had a make-over and now feels more cozy and up-to-date. The outside seating area has also been improved.

The restaurant is not quaint and could do some efforts to make it look better. But as a foodie, it's well worth the visit ! Food very good ! Service and wine list also good.

The restaurant uses very fine ingredients and outstanding technique in the kitchen. And this is worth the visit. However, they need to improve on service. On the day we visited, only one person was in charge of all of the tables. And the excellent food...More

The decor with the 1970s illumination ensures that no browny points can be won for a romantic atmosphere. I suppose it may cater mainly for business lunch clients. BUT the food is something quite different. It is excellent. The chef is clearly talented and sensitive....More
