This renowned restaurant is ideal for sampling local Piedmont dishes, though watch out as these can be quite heavy for the uninitiated. Service was good and dishes arrived promptly, though were not exceptional or particularly exciting.

Cavour is a beautiful little town in Piedmont, at the margins of the more well-known Langhe area. A little town that is quiet, relaxed, affordable and with a lot to offer (including a museum of Roman antiquities and the great medieval abbey of Staffarda). La Posta, is a gem. Great decor and ambiance, yet unpretentious. The food is in the... More

So-called "trattoria of the fatsos" because they used to host a contest for "Mr. and Mrs. Fatso" (I grassoni) up until 2006 (when apparently there was somehow a five-way tie as I was told the winners were a group who came over from Canada). The photos in the restaurant and the postcards available at the front desk document this strange... More

You will be welcome outside the entrance by a scale ... up to 200kg. This is where to start. Portions are immense (each individual order is good for three people). Food is absolutely correct, in the proper Piemontese tradition. Big menu, great wine-list. Informal, but also nice and cozy. In an alley just in the middle of this very nice... More

I love the food of La Posta, I have eaten there several times in the last 10 years and the food is always excellent. There is no shortage of dishes even though I am vegetarian. I cannot wait to return. The food is light, very fresh, seasonal produce and wonderful breads and pasta.

I immensly enjoyed this stay. The rooms of this hotel are fine, warm, even if simple. The restaurant was a pleasure I still talk about, after several months. You're served in abundant portions and can get a perfect sample of Pidemont kitchen (despite it varys from town to town). The value for money ratio is excellent.
