“Innovative, fresh cuisine”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

Excellent food served by the chef, Marco, who was knowledgeable and fun. This is a favorite restaurant of a local winemaker we had been visiting and who joined us for lunch. He opened her wines for us and shared a glass. We all tried one another's meals and everything was exquisite.

“Sublime”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

Our group of four travelled in Italy for two weeks. We never had a bad meal, we had some mediocre ones and some really good ones, but our dinner at Osteria Batarglino made all other meals pale in comparison. Fresh, seasonal, local, unique family recipes; personable service; pretty well-paced for an Italian restaurant. I can see how Flavia can be perceived as bossy. With us, she was very professional, but also funny and generous. The chef came out and talked to us personally. If you are there in the fall, pray that you are lucky and pumpkin gnocchi are on the menu. They were simply divine.

“Bad experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

Let's make a premise: food was not bad at all (though, you might be able to find around the area something better for less money).
What I really couldn't stand is the way the lady taking orders was treating us. It might happen now and then that people are not used to this kind of atmosphere; it is up to the host to make you feel at home. Instead, we felt the she was patronizing (we were almost laughed at because one of us ordered a beer) and confrontational.

This all exploded when we told her that we waited almost one and a half hour for our pasta; which is when an argument started (it is her home, and if we do not appreciate the way they do things, we should leave) and we ended up outside the restaurant (kicked out, basically). At least we didn't pay in the end (she didn't want us to)!

Ha ragione, siete stati proprio una brutta esperienza.
Non mi era mai capitato di dover invitare dei clienti ad allontanarsi dal mio ristorante.
in merito alla vostra recensione ci tengo a sottolineare che vi sono state servite tre portate in 45 minuti e che la persona di cui parla non è ne una ragazza ne una cameriera, ma ha 40 anni ed è proprietaria di questo ristorante, vi siete comportati come dei cafoni, urlando e trattando con sufficienza e maleducazione il mio personale, non è un caso che siate stati cacciati tra i complimenti e l'approvazione di tutta la sala.
poor people dovrei scrivere se non fosse che siete di Alba e l'italiano lo capiate meglio.

“Great food and lovely atmosphore”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor while staying in a villa locally. When we discussed with the villa owners, they also recommended the place, so off we went.
Locating the restaurant was no problems and there was ample car parking and a really nice surprise was that the menus were in both Italian and English, a really nice touch there and really appreciated.
We had an amazing meal here and the bill with drinks for the 2 of us came to just about 100 euros, and we thought that was reasonable considering the restaurant. It included a half bottle of local red wine. The speed of service was ideal, helpful but without being intrusive and we would definitely go back again.

“GO IN TRUFFLE SEASON!”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We have been so lucky to be there (by chance, with friends) during truffle season! We enjoyed the food very much. My husband had some ravioli and I had the most simple - thus wonderful - food of the world: a fried egg topped with the most appetizing white truffle from Alba. Believe me, it was heaven! Not to say of wine, service and dessert (small pears cooked with red wine and served with "zabaione"). Yummy, thank you for existing!
