Despite arriving just behind a very large table (which at a small place often means you are neglected and made to wait for drinks and food), this was not the case. We had exceptional service and fantastic food. Our meal came to 75 euro for two starters, two mains, a shared dessert medley, a bottle of wine, a bottle of water, a small local craft beer, and a glass of dessert wine. Very good value for money in my opinion.

I had never been to Varzi before and had no clue about where to eat. A friend, who is also a longtime resident, took me to this restaurant. If I had been alone, I probably would have walked right on by it thinking it just a coffee bar. I couldn't believe the line of people waiting to get in! Luckily we had a reservation (highly recommended). The dining area is cozy and the summer terrace tiny. The food was very good. Service was quicker than I'd expected considering there is only one chef and 2 wait staff.

The location can only be reached by foot, up and down medieval cobbled streets, so high heels aren't ideal. We also got lucky and there was a medieval festival in progress so people in period costume running around. The restaurant boasted a medieval menu in honor of the occasion (it looked like a selection of fixed dishes from the regular menu).

Only "negative" might be limited selection. Apparently, they only do 4 menu changes a year, one for each season, which is ok if you are an occasional diner but might get boring if you dine there more than 4 times a season as each course has about 4 choices.

A ver small, beautifully presented restaurant. Food fantastic with many local flavours. Wine excellent. Service excellent. Unfortunately only a ground slot toilet which would be very difficult for large or older people unaccustomed to them.

We ate here and tasted some wonderful food but the best plate by far was the tagliatelle with rabbit sauce! It was simply delightful. The wine (Marchese adorno) was also lovely and the service was friendly and appropriate. All in all I am very happy with the overall experience.
