We went to La Commenda for dinner. We felt very welcomed and the service was very friendly. The food was regional and very creative. It was definitely a memorable dinner due to the excellent food.

High level and selected dishes. The owner is friendly and passionate about his creations. The cod fish (baccalá) was the best I ever had. Traditional cuisine rethought with state-of-art processing.

But the most peculiar part is how much you are going to eat. My wife is 48 chili grams , not used to eating much anyway, but this time she was still... More

We had lunch on a Saturday. The owner and his wife do everything with excellence. Great ambience in the place with interesting photos on the wall and also in a book you can look at. Good wine selection and innovative delicious food. Highly recommended.

For some a cozy dining room will overcome any deficiencies in the kitchen. For me it's all about what makes it to the table which is why I can't recommend La Commenda. We were taken in by the menu but should have known there was something amiss when we were the only diners on a week day evening when so... More

There were only two tables of diners at La Commenda on a weekday night in Acqui, and the proprietors Emanuele and Loredana made us feel very welcome. Emanuele took the time to explain every course he prepared, and he served each course personally. His inverse interpretation of vitello tonnato, in which small cubes of raw tuna sit in a shallow...

The menu is in italian, but don't worry, the cook personally explains what's on the menu. Lovely food, local ingredients and nice wines. One of the better restaurants in town.

We had no real plan to eat somewhere and settled down on the street table with no specific expectation. Service and Food and Price were excellent. Not fancy but honest and delicious
