The first night in Alba they were closed but tried again the following night and we were not disappointed. The food was very good and the wine list excellent.

Booked this as last night in Alba nice meal. We should have looked at the menu for the night before sitting down. Odd selection of items that most in our party couldn't/wouldn't eat (eg. 3 veal dishes). Rabbit was overcooked, dry and lacked flavor. Risotto...More
