A simple, non pretentious place with good local food. Few dishes made of ingredients of the season, no printed menu. Freshly made pasta from own workshop across the street. Although simple, dishes were fresh and cooked well. Taste buds & stomach thanking during and after lunch.

Yes, it's true that you may enter this restaurant unaware of what you will be eating on any given night. Join the locals on line before opening, and put yourself in the hands of the bustling wait staff. You can have a magnificent meal, as we twice did. The sampler of appetizers can be a marvelous journey in itself. One... More

From the minute we walked in we knew we were in for an experience. No menu! No problem! Our waitress was the best! We told her that we were not extremely hungry and that we didn't want big portions, she brought us a small appetizer, small pasta portion, and small entree...PERFECT! The food was wonderful and again, our server was... More

They were so kind to accommodate us with a reservation during their busy season which is the truffle season. At noon everyone arrived with a full restaurant, we were all promptly seated. The waitress was so kind speaking in Italian and English. It turned out to be one course after another. We had either 5 or 6 courses plus one... More

We were there during truffle season while visiting the Fair! This topical Piemontese restaurant was a wonderful surprise! Someone suggested we visit and we were blown away with the quality of the food, the exceptionally reasonable price and the friendliness of the owner. They were completely booked yet I wrote to the owner three days before our arrival and he... More

Little gem in the heart of Alba. The service is very friendly. The portions are generous and simply delicious. Nice selection of wines which ensures you can always find something matching any dish you chose. We definitely will go back there. Highly recommended.

A restaurant in Alba that welcomes a single traveller. (The other top restaurants on TA just shrug and said fully book even for the next day without checking their reservation). I went there twice during my 3 nights here. On both nights I was well taken care off by the friendly waitress and the boss, especially on the 2nd night... More

We're in Alba for the White Truffle Festival so followed advice and arrived to claim a table at 7 pm when a queue was forming. The atmosphere is rustic and friendly and the service starts slowly but is excellent. Local, regional dishes are served, one at a time, and there is little choice but that doesn't matter - they are... More
