On our first night in the Piemonte, we had a marvelous dinner at Il Trifulau. Reservations are required. We had called well in advance and explained that there are certain meats we don’t eat. When we arrived, the menu was perfect for us! And we were the only diners that night. The table was set for us next to the fire which was nice since it was a very cold night. The first order of business, if you want to eat white truffles, is to have a look at the basket of truffles they bring to the table and pick which you want. It is then weighed and you pay for that in addition to whatever else you eat. The prices were very fair for white truffles (less per etto than other restaurants in the area). We started with a simple egg frittata with tartufo nero. Very tasty, followed by an insalata of mushrooms. The fonduta with tartufo bianco was very rich and excellent and the tagliatelle (tajarin) with white truffle was simple and very good. We also had rabbit in wine sauce that was great and cooked carrots. We had a nice mix of three desserts. We like the flan-like budino di cioccolatto best. The baby pear in wine and torta made with hazelnuts were good too. The couple who own the place clearly love their little restaurant and their small cantina which they toured us through for a little tasting at the end of our meal. Their organic wine is very good, by the way, and we ended up buying several bottles. We’ll go back for sure!
