We loved staying at this charming hotel. The building is set in a stunning location and is steeped in local history. The courtyard is beautiful for sitting out and enjoying the sunshine. We had the compulsory five course meal (40 euros per head) which was very good including a pasta course with the pasta utterly delicious and al dente. Pudding not so great but overall we were very happy. Lovely people and the headwaiter was thrilled to be quizzed about the wines in the cellar. He took my husband into the seller to select a special bottle. Overall we had a lovely time and would visit again. I loved that they had freely available fizzy and still drinking water on tap.

We were there for 6 days in the beginning of August. We were looking for an experience of authentic local culture. And we got this and so much more! The vineyard is original 17 century with modern commodities in old fashioned style, the view over the surrounding landscape from the hill with the pool area is absolutely stunning, the food tasting menu was well worth trying more than once (which we did)… And the service was outstanding, making us feel at home (or even better), and receiving so much kind and great service from the staff. The owner herself is a gracious and worthy kind of person, with a big heart – and having learned that I was curious to seek out my ancestry in the region dating some 200 years back, she gladly went to extraordinary measures to help me even meet with a local relative (who had never heard of any relatives in Sweden). All this made our trip to Piemonte and our staying at Casa Scaparone into an experience ten times more special than staying at any regular hotel. We hope to go there again in the future, but the beautiful and warm memories we bring with us from there will be strong enough for many years to come. Thank you so much.

We have celebrated our wedding with 50 guests at Casa Scaparone in May 2022 and we were very happy we choose for Casa Scaparone. This is a family business run by two beautiful women. Carolina and Allesandra made us feel everything was in very good hands. The whole team is absolutely great, friendly, professional and flexible. They really took great care of everything. No question was too much. As you can see on the pictures it is a wonderful place on every single detail. Casa Scaparone is run by heart and soul and this is something you feel during your stay.
We couldn’t imagine a better place to celebrate our wedding!

This was our second stay at Casa Scaperone, since we felt the place had potential, despite a few minor issues.
This turned out to be a mistake, since everything has gone downhill from there.
Uninspired food, no AC or wifi in the suites, despite advertising these. Staff that go from indifferent at best to ridiculously rude. Unprofessional on all accounts.
When compared to the prices of the other options in the area, they fall even further behind. They claim to take pride in their work. This, unfourtunatly, does not translate to their guests. The impression is that nobody really cares, and it’s a shame since the place is beautiful.
When it’s one issue after the other and all you get is shrugs and excuses, it gets old fast.

Our room was in the old part of the house - it smelled like the fireplace all night and felt like a cave. It was a very dark room with poor lighting and noisy above the kitchen. The bathroom was very nice except it had this open medicine chest filled with tube of ointments and medicines. We felt like they lived in this room the rest of the time, and had maybe overbooked-it was wired. I should have known when there were no room pictures I could find on the web - I trusted because it got good reviews. We left after one night.

We had the pre-fixe dinner - E35 - because they are not near any restaurants. Batista passed thru the dining room with a covered plate, saying "you have a chance to taste the while truffle on your pasta". Stupidly and travel-weary, we replied "Oh that would be nice". Batista just forgot to mention it would be an additional E15 per person - a whopping E50 dinner with the worst wine I've ever tasted - kind of like old gym socks! One sip and I was done. I also know white truffles and these were a really good "look alike" without the taste - gee, do you think he knew?

Batista had a sign up at the registration desk "No Credit Cards" when we arrived. It was a Sunday and we had a problem with the ATM and couldn't get more cash; he was nice and told us to use the credit card. When we paid our bill, he said of course he had to add 5% for the credit card fee - once again not letting us know ahead of time. It just felt like he would take as much advantage as he could, while he did.

We've traveled a lot Italy and try to stay in agriturismos. We've generally found them quite hospitable: Not so Casa Scaparone.

We booked to stay for 2 nights (Sat & Sun) having read glowing recommendations in a variety of newspapers and magazines (The Guardian Travel section, Sydney Morning Herald, etc) "an eco-friendly agriturismo run by the charismatic Battista Cornaglia, an ardent Piedmont nationalist who is farmer, winemaker, poet and musician".

We arrived around 7pm to find that there was no-one to greet us. After a few minutes a member of the kitchen staff appeared & alerted a teenage girl who showed us to our room. She then promptly disappeared, with no mention of dinner arrangements (we had booked to eat at their restaurant that evening), breakfast or any other information.

We had booked a 'larger' room at €90 per night. The room was 1 of 4 in the converted barn opposite the main building. It had a large double bed, a bunk bed, a small dining table and a large wardrobe. It was decorated quite pleasantly and was fairly clean. The bathroom was very disappointing - it was tiny (4 sq m) and the shower a cheap plastic affair which didn't drain well.

Not knowing what time dinner would be served we sat waiting in the courtyard with a number of other B&B and dinner guests watching the staff run around in what seemed to be slight panic setting up tables etc. No-one acknowledged us (or the other guests), and when we asked for a wine menu we were given a choice of red or white. It turned out that they only serve their own produced wine which, given this agriturismo/vineyard is in the middle of one of the best wine regions in the world, was surprisingly awful.
Dinner consisted of about 8 courses of rustic dishes traditional to the region. The quality was average to poor and the service was abrupt and unfriendly. The cost was €28 per person. We saw the owner and his wife a few times during the evening but not once did either of them acknowledge us. There were about 3 other couples/families staying as B&B guests so it would not have been to difficult to identify us from those just dining.

The following morning we had breakfast (to which no mention of had been given the night before, so we had no idea what time it was served and where to go). There were no staff around so we helped ourselves (we ended up taking the breakfast outside as it was a sunny day). The food was the standard meats, cheeses and bread (not very good bread either).

All in all it was a very disappointing stay - so much so that we decided to leave after the first night (no-one asked us why upon checking out - they just gave us the bill!). The overall impression was that the owners no longer seemed to care about their guests. In fact the 2 baby billy goats in their stables gave us a friendlier reception than all of the staff put together. We will not be returning!

We liked the pasta at dinner especially. Nice staff. Nice courtyard. Great grappa.

Breakfast rather mediocre. Sweet cakes dry and boring. Pool not built yet but neither no sunbathing/relaxation area (at all ! - in such a big property). Room was a bit dark and cold but with particular decor. There are not many opportunities in the area to just go for a walk - we ended up walking along the road. Perhaps its better for just a dinner trip from Alba. Not impressed by the wine list either.

Would have probably chosen to stay elsewhere next time but would not mind to come back for lunch.

Organised by the bridal party, we spent two nights in the historic buildings, and all meals in the main function area. The rooms were well appointed and refurbished tastefully and somewhat idiosyncratically by the owner some years ago - they are full of rustic charm and yet comfortable and pleasant.
The function space is either indoors or (for us and in good weather) outdoors under umbrellas around a timber dance floor. The food was excellent and the staff were very keen to help.
The owner and her family are key to the ambience and service quality. Their story of the Casa and how they got to be involved is steeped in history, reflecting the rural setting amongst the vines and fruit trees of the piece of northern Italy rural life.
The village is quaint and quiet and the people most accommodating.
A truely wonderful experience of Italian hospitality, kindness and bon amie.

We (2 couples) stayed at Casa Scaparone for 5 nights , and had dinner there on 3 occasions , including Saturday , when a 2 man band provided fun entertainment .
Rooms were large and decorated in a fun , quirky way by the owners , Alessandra and Battista .
Food was always good , whether breakfast or dinner , most of the produce having been grown on the farm .Meals , consisting of local specialties , was uniformly good to excellent .
The little band at the Saturday dinner was a complete bonus for us , making the total experience pretty much perfect .
Battista has been suffering an extensive illness , so we didn't meet him , but Alessandra gave us a warm welcome at dinners on the weekend .
Staff was friendly and helpful . (Special mention to Fabiana , who brought bright , friendly service to our breakfasts).
Battista had provided a hand-drawn map of the region which we were given early in our stay , and which , with the added advice of the staff ,was a BIG help in pointing us to highlights of this beautiful wine region .
If you travel in the Alba region , can't se how you could go wrong here .
