I stopped in and had dinner on one of my two nights in Alba. The place filled up so get there early. One of the best meals I had in Italy!

Had chosen several other restaurants for dinner, but all were closed on Wednesday, so pleased to find this open. We are always fans of "Slow Food" so expectations were high. The restaurant has minimal decor and a touch modern. But of course the shelves of wine bring the final touch to the atmosphere. We ordered from the Italian menu, so... More

We had a nice meal here and were a bit sorry that we were not hungry enough to have the degustation - which looked wonderful. The food and wine we chose was delicious and served with classy attention and care. Not a casual place, but not stuffy. Would return.

We visited the restaurant for lunch and we didn`t what to expect. They really suprised us with imaginative food, good wine and the best tiramisu for the past few days. The price was ok, not cheep, but also not too expensive for what we got.

Been there some times through the years last time 2011, but anytime we visit Alba lunch is taken here. Always book a table, then the classics Vitelli Tonnato, Carne Cruda, Tajarin, Dolce and a bottle of Barbera this time Revello Cabot du Re, finish with Barolo Chianti and espresso. This restaurant has kept the same high level and of course... More

Had a very nice dinner at this cosy restaurant in the centre of Alba, Piedmont. Traditional Piedmont dishes at a very high level of quality for reasonable prices! A traditional menu (4 courses) for just 38€. Service is fast and professional. Nothing to complain about. Special attention on the winelist. They offer a nice selection of piedmont wines at the...

Went here on the recommendation of our lovely hosts at Villa La Favorita, and we were blown away. With a serious cook and experienced diners among us, we are used to eating excellent food (especially in Italy). Lucky for us, we were able to get the last four seats at the community table right when they opened (everything else reserved)... More

Great atmosphere, buzzy and immaculate but a little too brightly lit. Nice greeting, friendly guys, fun vibe. Food is very good without ever really hitting the absolute top spot. Though I would want to go back and try some other stuff because you have the feeling that it might depending on what you have. Wine is super for the price.... More

This is a fine restaurant tucked away off the Piazza Michele Ferrero at the south end of the city center. We were greeted warmly on arrival and the same great attitude from all staff continued throughout the meal. We each had a pasta dish (mine was tagliatelle with sausage) and both were excellent. Our "secondi piatti" were braised veal and... More
