After we parked the car, Eliza grabbed me by the hand and we started running down the small streets. she told me you have to taste the Farinata, its one of the local dishes and this place makes it the...

Ideal place for quick lunch meals. Local easy dishes like Farinata worth trying. Friendly athmosphere frequented by local people.

My girlfriend and I had lunch there after visiting the local market on Friday morning. They have a very good value menu. The food was good, although probably not entirely home made. But the place is nice and the staff was efficient.

Being a tourist I was really looking forward to trying some traditional food from the Acqui region. My Nonna is from this area and I was looking forward to tasting all the foods she has raved about for so many years. Antica was cheap but not even worth the price. Very bland food and small portions just thrown onto the... More

We have eaten at this establishment several times and every time have the feeling that perhaps we were there on the wrong day as friends continue to recommend this eatery - but we would not and probably won't return. The lunch menu we had last time was not good value and the food very ordinary. One of us had only... More

This is where the locals go. Not a tourist in sight. However the menu was limited and the food was disappointing. If you for some reason feel inclined to try their Bollita Mista (platter with boiled brain, tongue etc with parsley) or Brus (cheese mixed with grappa) then this might be a place for you. We had a decent bagna... More

Not sure why the ratings are so,low for this spot. it is a classic Osteria, best prices you will find in town, and a lively atmosphere. Traditional dishes that were tasty. The service was satisfactory and athe owner was friendly. We noticed many people stopped for a quick lunch, such as the farinata. Not for a fancy meal but great... More
