Whilst visiting Italy on our romantic eataly experience we ate some fantastic food. This was by far the best meal of our holiday but then you would expect that! The food was stunning and service excellent. The restaurant was quiet as it was a Sunday evening but we still had a great time! The only issue I did have was... More

One of the few 2 starred Michelin restaurant at this part of Italy. With my wife and a friend, 3 of us had a dinner. We tried meat tasting menu. Out of the dishes offered we liked only 3 or 4 of them. The others were a little to fill the menu. I would say Michelin officials were a little... More

I stayed in The Piemonte and ate at Il Piccolo during my stay. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive, and there was a noticeable increase in the level of (already good) service between Regina (Breakfast) and Piccolo. The food was very very good, as you would expect from 2 Michelin Stars and I received some nice surprises which made... More

Me and my girlfriend ate in the 2 star Michelin restaurant on the 5th floor. The service and food exceed expectations. We were made to feel special by everyone and the chef is a genius. Every dish made with love and thought and served beautifully. The service was of the highest standard. My girlfriend had diet requirements, and the chef... More

Too many tables booked for service, staff to busy to give customers the attention that a 2 star michelin restaurant should provide. We ordered the tasting menu and arrived at 8.00pm and did not get to leave the restaurant until 12.30am. The food was very nice but the long wait completely spoilt the night. Tables were set up on the... More

You know when a restaurant uses something that looks like truffle but has no taste to cover up for lack of talent ? And does not decant EUR110 2007 wine with sediment but says 'we do not decant wine in Italy' ! This is one of those places : avoid.

The Mrs and I are huge fans of the Principe di Piemonte hotel but we've never been blown away by their gourmet restaurant. It is based on the roof of the hotel and switches between being enclosed or having tabled arranged at the side of the rooftop pool. This time, we were sat next to the pool. It's a nice... More
