“5-month stay at da nonna Carla's”
Reviewed May 30, 2010

Our company in Las Vegas, Nevada sent a number of us to assist the start-up of a new plasterboard manufacturing plant near Asti. A co-worker recommended that I stay at da nonna Carla's because he was very pleased with the service. During my five month stay at da nonna Carla, it truly became my home away from home. Carla, Paulo and Stefania are such gracious hosts. They always made me feel welcome and comfortable. The rooms are very clean and the meals they served us were fantastic.
You will not find more wonderful people or better service anywhere. I recommend this bed & breakfast to everyone.

Travelling from France to the Dolomites we booked this B & B and diner for the evening. Da Nonna Carla is easy to find with a navigationsystem, about 15 minutes after leaving the A21 Superstrada.

The welcome was warm and friendly by da Nonna Carla herself. After showing us our room, she offered us some cold orangejuice. The room and bathroom were very nice: spacious and newly decorated.

Diner was served by Paolo, the owner. He is very hospitable and dedicated to make the guests have a pleasant stay. He made us feel really welcome! And then the diner itself... Absolutely fantastic. We had antipasti (filled eggs, marinated aubergine (eggplant), salumi), pasta with tomato and aubergine, brasato as secondi and chocolate cream and coffe for dessert. Paolo asked us what kind of wine we liked. With our preferences and the menu in mind he adviced us a local wine: Barbera d'Asti. Good choice! Breakfast is Italian-style: sweet pie, cookies and crackers with strong coffee.

My family and I were traveling from Pisa to Geneva and needed a place to rest our heads halfway in between. My mother-in-law chose this inn because of its central location and good price.

On our way to the inn, we got lost. We called to ask for directions, and the owner, Paolo, ended up meeting us in a nearby town and driving us back to the hotel. This was extraordinary service, given we arrived at 11 pm. On arrival, we were given a snack and something to drink and were given our choice of rooms.

The rooms were cozy, charming and newly renovated. It was hard to choose a room!

The next morning Paolo and Stefania made us a homemade, customized breakfast of eggs, toast, bacon, fruit and freshly made pastries. They knew we were American and wanted to make sure we ate what we were accustomed to. (Very sweet!)

After breakfast we all went outside and enjoyed the view of the countryside (because we arrived so late, we hadn't seen this the night before).

Da Nonna Carla is located in a quiet part of the Italian countryside. It's a great place to go to getaway from the stressors of life because it is in a rural area. We only stayed for less than 1 day, so we didn't take advantage of all there is to do in the area.

Overall, expect a quiet retreat a short drive from town. The owners are extremely hospitable, and the inn is one of our favorites on our 2 week trip.
