Up a back street with about 40 covers, includong 3 outside tables in the shade. There were 4 dishes on the day we went - a plate of bruschetto, a mixed plate of local cheeses and cold meats, raw vegetables with an anchovy and garlic sauce for dipping and a bowl of spicy sausages, marinaded in barolo and cooked in herbs. (We ordered the last 3 dishes). When you've ordered your food, they then advise which wines go with it from a huge selection, being quite explicit on prices (which are not expensive). The dishes were superb and the accompanying wines good (we had both a red and a white). Service a touch slow as quite a lot of waitress time is tied up explaining the wines. But well worth the wait. Outstanding value for money.

This small enoteca is just off the main street - in Via Bersani, in the heart of Orta San Giulio and has a good selection of both very local and Piemonte wines, some also by a glass. The owner knows his stuff, is a nice, friendly guy and speaks good English, which is helpfull if your Italian is minimal. There are also typical snacks and deserts, so great place to go if you're not hungry enough for a big dinner.
