Limited choice but what we had was well executed and served attentively at a good pace. Like all good restaurants in this part of the world the wine list is predominantly local and with limited mark up. Ceretto Arneis Blangé, excellent local Enrico Vaudano Barbera Superiore (€13) & Socré Barbaresco (€28). Antipasti included salami & lardo with fried dough balls, Jerusalem artichoke flan with Bagna Cauda, prosciutto cotto with a tuna sauce. Secondo we all had Tajarin with a duck ragù and finished with rabbit cooked with lemon and polenta. Only 1 dolce ordered but it was a proper semifredo not out of the freezer and still hard in the centre.Wonderfully atmospheric dining room of a bygone era. Coffees and an amaro at the bar and a bill of less than €200 for 5. We will definitely be back

We were in Cisterna trying to find a vineyard Enrico at Diavolo in Asti had recommended. It was noon, the village was quiet, we were tired and hungry, but oh how we lucked out with this find. Inside we walked upstairs into the small dining room that was set up for locals. The decor was like walking back in time into the mid 19th century. Dark wood beams, black and white prints and yellowing photos, we were sure Garibaldi was going to sweep in at any moment. We speak virtually no Italian. Our serving woman was patient and smiling; we decided to follow her lead. Her antipasti dishes included anchovies in red sauce, an excellent rabbit terrine, local ham with homemade mayonnaise and pickles followed by an outstanding yellow pepper flan with a fresh pesto. Pasta dishes, steaming tagliolini in red wine ragu, ravioli in sage butter, veal scallops, eased along with a mellow 2009 Terre Alfieri Arneis. Dessert was zabionne (? spelling) with a wonderful Moscato grape sauce. While we ate the room filled up with locals and we started to wonder if maybe we shouldn't up stakes and move from our village in the south of France to Cisterna. After lunch the owners steered us down the hill to find our vineyard. The directions were clear. We still got lost but we couldn't get frustrated because the lunch experience was simply too fantastic to let a little incident like being lost in vineyards spoil our day. Whitebeard83

Garibaldi would have "good food" they told us. So we went there and were charmed by the character of the restaurant and its kind service. But most of all we were impressed by the quality of the food. There is no "à la carte" menu, you can choose between two or three dishes for each course. We enjoyed the taste of everything that was served. It was a surprising and culinary evening!
