Very rustic and romantic spot tucked away on a small street. Excellent food and nice ambience. Good for both lunch and dinner.

We had an excellent dinner with friends at dei Catari. Their terrace is really beautiful and the foods are delicious and prices are not too high. Service is also really friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who visits Monforte d'Alba.

Ate here one busy Saturday in May, and enjoyed some truly superb food. Nice atmosphere, helpful staff and an interesting locally sourced menu with sufficient choice without trying do too much. We had a nettle souffle, risotto di Barolo and roast pork. All excellent, but the risotto was the star. Definitely on the list for future visits to the region.

Stayed in Monforte 5 nites in May and ate dinner here. Food was very good and good price. Wine was excellent and shockingly inexpensive.

A very interesting menu, with great pasta. We all enjoyed good food, good wine and a pleasant room. They offer a set menu which is a very good value.

We enjoyed dinner for a large table of 10 - the food was extremely well prepared, local cuisine, and the wine selection is outstanding. Family run with two brothers running the restaurant while dad is the head chef.

Thanks to the good food, the welcoming people and the lovely town of Monforte d'Alba this is a must visit osteria. The food is good without being very high end or expensive. The atmosphere is cosy as if you're in someone's house. And the village is worth to visit, especially the higher parts thanks to the great view over the... More

Imaginative authentic food of high quality to match the local Barolo and Nebbiolo wines. So good we went two out of our three nights. Thanks Rodollo for the recommendation
