We lucked into a table here after visiting the annual truffle fair. Superbly prepared local dishes. Definitely recommend all the pasta dishes. We also tried the duck with peppers and that was awesome. Then finished with an amazing good chocolate fondant dessert.

This small restaurant down an alley off the main drag is sensational. The food is typical Piedmontese done with a flair but the wine is something else. Visited with Captains Choice tour wine managers who knew the most knowledgeable and gregarious owner I have met...More
