Excellent creative cuisine. Ingredients from the area but not only. Meat and fish. Mushroom salad with a peach background . A superb zabaglione. Wine by the glass to match the dishes. Service extremely professional but a bit slow. If you are in the neighborhood this is a must.

Our hotel made our reservation for this restaurant. We was a party of three and were seated in the small garden. The waiters were very friendly and spoke good English. We started with a small (and free) appetizer, and then shared two good vitello tonnato's. There were plenty food for three persons. We then got a nice lemon risotto with... More

We had two dishes each not fancy or something you not could have made at home, so never going back, food might be traditional but could and should have been more delicious. Winelist is fine but very expensive, Maybe this works In... More

La Torre is a wonderful, specially understated local restaurant with a great menu; tasty dishes, delicious deserts and amazing wines to go with them. The service is excellent, atmosphere relaxed and we all loved this restaurant. Great place to dine.

Cherasco is a delightful small town near the wine growing region in Piedmont. My wife and I chose La Torre for lunch and were delighted by the great quality of the food. My wife chose an antipasti of snails which were delicious. I chose Piedmontese raw beef. For the main we both chose some delicious roast lamb. With water and... More

If you visit an Italian "osteria" you may expect a family owned traditional restaurant where you are pampered by the cook and the owner with genuine dishes, freshly made according to the family traditions. Here it's another story: forget the simple local cuisine, because you'll find in your dishes interesting culinary acrobatics. The location is quite ordinary, downtown old Cherasco,... More

good food, nice place. the only defect is they are really long. but it worth. the owners are really kind and available to help you in the choice of the food/wine. there is also a small garden on the back that would be great in spring/summer.

What a treat to go back to Osteria La Torre after 4 years! When we first ate here in 2011 (in a former location nearby) it was one of the highlights of our trip. On our way deep into Piemonte (i.e., Cuneo area) we stopped by for lunch and were not disappointed. The new space gives more opportunity for Marco,... More

Had the best raviolli with goat cheese filling topped with funghi porcini. The staff was young, friendly and knowledgeable and I would definitely return.
