“Superb local faire!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Gracious proprietors, amazing food, and a lovely setting. Order whatever is in season or what the staff tells you is best on the menu that day. It's hard to go wrong. They really take care of their patrons and care about every dish that emerges form the kitchen.

“A great traditional”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

Well deserved placing high on the Trip Advisor list of Alba restaurants. Situated in a little wine town just outside Alba city center. We found it quite easily after a five min drive. Traditional cuisine, crafted in the best possible way. Huge portions of pasta made it hard to get through the secondi - but what great tastes!

“It felt like being cooked for by your lovely mother!”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

This family run restaurant is one of the friendliest places I have eaten at. Local dishes including braised beef and delicious homemade pasta are offered following a complimentary welcome glass of prosecco when you arrive. Excellent value for money - the dishes are HUGE so be careful not to order too much! A lovely wine list including excellent value Borolo wines.
