“Loved it.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

You know there must be good cooking because no one will ever run over this place by chance. If "in the middle of nowhere" fits for a restaurant, it must be this one. However, it is just a few minutes from the Milan - Genova highway, so an excellent place for a break.

However, beeing close to the river Po (which you cannot see or guess) enables them to serve delicious fish out of the river and excellent vegetables from the own garden. Worth a special mention is the fantastic choice of local cheeses which would not disappoint in a starred restaurant. Good choice of local wines at low prices.

Highly recommend. Will definetely come back.

“Unique "Carrello dei formaggi!"”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Located in a quite location very close to the Po riverside, it is not the easiest place to find however it is definitely worth the efforts. The Restaurant offers a fine selection of local traditional dishes of different kind. The Wine list is very good and so is the selection of Grappa's.
Anybody going there must remember to keep some spare for cheese. The cheese selection is presented on a trolley where are available different kind cheeses for all the test, for tasty and spicy to soft and delicate served with a selection of jams or honey.
The price varies significantly depending on the wine however I would say indicatively a dinner may range between 30 and 40 Euro.

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed October 19, 2009

About thirty miles from Alexandria, in the countryside on the border from Lombardy and Piedmont on the banks of the river Po, in existence for over thirty years this restaurant reported the best Italian food guides.
Environment a bit dated but real kitchen of territory formerly dominated meat and fish from the lake.
Cheese trolley with over seventy-quality, locally.
Pasta and homemade desserts.
Valid wine list with Piedmontese reds of great depth.
Excellent value for money.
Only problem is hard to find without a good navigator.
