This is perhaps one of those special or unusual restaurants that you want to visit once but not put on your list of regulars. The restaurant is next to (actually it is in the former stables of) Govone Castle, one of the summer palaces of the Savoy kings. We arrived at dusk providing an enchanting view of the Castle and the valley below. The restaurant is tastefully appointed - one would never guess its original purpose, except perhaps that the ceiling is rather oppressively low. The lighting, in particular, is highly original, creating a contemporary and yet warm ambience. There was no a la carte menu, just a choice of two menu degustazione at 60 and 85 euro. Although based in Italian tradition, the food clearly reflected the head chef's broad international experience. There was, for example, greater use of different types of spices such as pepper, and generally the dishes were creative and imaginative. The service was professional and courteous, without being over-friendly or too distant. Ours was the only table that evening which was a little disconcerting. Apparently Mr Bussetti finds that there is more demand for his talents in Moscow these days. That is Moscow's gain.
