The only hard thing is to get here, especially if you come from Asti or Torino. But, after climbing up and down a couple of hills, you enter any of the dining rooms and you start enjoying a fantastic ensemble of food, atmosphere and tradition.
The restaurant is family managed with peculiar (great) attention and care of any guest.
The dining rooms are exactly the modern translation of any traditional Piedmont "osteria", back to at least 40 years ago.
The food is terrific. They propose a combination of starters, about four. Anytime I took any of these combinations, it was delicious. If you are not interested in a full meal, I suggest to avoid the first main course (but take into account that pastas and agnolotti are great) and take the second main course. They bring a trolley with all daily choices on it. So, you can taste several samples, according to your desire.
If they have it on the trolley, I like to take "finanziera", a tasting, "heavy metal" recipe of the old Piedmont. Very well prepared here. But also "guanciale", ribs, briskets, stews are more than delicious. A valid alternative is represented by the wheel of cheese selections. One of my favorite choices as well.
Desserts come from the Piedmont tradition, as the rest, and they are great as well.
Wine list is amazing. You can drink whatever you can imagine and pay whatever you don't. But it is obviously part of the game, and the list contains some interesting labels with adequate cost.
If you have time and the place is not too busy, ask to visit the cellar. As small as exciting (for the wine filed there) and valuable. They have been continuously growing their wine selection, starting few decades ago.
