Description: In the city pedestrian precinct a stone’s throw from “Piazza Italia”, Acqui’s main square, and from the famous fountain “la Bollente” (meaning the boiling) you will find our old trattoria. Our small restaurant is deeply rooted in Piedmontese tradition. In fact we offer our guests a three-generation-old characteristic plain cooking, based on old unchanged recipes. Also our Farinata is made according to the old recipe of grandfather Ferruccio and cooked in a typical wood-burning oven. Our dishes are served with selected kinds of typical wine, which compliment our gastronomy in the best way. Trattoria Mazzini is surely the right place where you can taste and savour Acqui traditional cooking.

“Fantastic farinata!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I really enjoy farinata and have to say this is one of the best places for it. Not too soft in the middle, crunchy on the top - perfect. Served best with a little pepper on top and bottle of local wine.

“Warmful friendly delightly place”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Althought i am italian and i know farinata pretty well that was one of the best ever. I tried ravioli and stockfish and they were delightful too. Almost like I could cook them. Just kidding... they were much better. You have to consider we are in the middle of the piedmont cuisine tradition. Whatever you eat or drink you're tasting the soil and culture that made all this possible (except the stockfish ;). I end up licking my thumb. Nothing more to say.

“Busy, but worth the wait for the farinata!”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We came here for lunch to eat farinata .. the place was full, but the lovely staff told us they would reserve a table for us and told us to come back in 15 mins. When we came back, a table was ready and it was worth it.
We both had the farinata .. if you are feeling hungry you can get the larger serving .. you can also get it with gorgonzola, and they are not shy on the portions.
My husband also got the funghi crepelle which was delicious and the tris .. trippa and two types of stoccafisso. He recommend the trippa, and mopped his plate clean with the bread.
The desserts looked delicious, but unfortunately we were full ..
The staff and locals were all friendly .. I would recommend this place, even if you have to wait.

“Nice place to eat farinata!”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

It's a nice place, specialized in "farinata", which is the best dish served here along with stoccafisso. Some other local dishes are available, but I think the tastiest is still a portion of hot and crunchy farinata, with some pepper on top ;)
