This is a great casual osteria serving slightly modernized Piemontese cuisine. The service was very good.

Went there just to see how it is. Was so good that I came again two days later with some friends. First time I ate risotto which was made with local Barbera wine. Best I ever had. Tasting menu was great. Portions were not just examples, but real good sized. And of course local wines are excellent. We were really... More

Although the kitchen is a trafitional one, there are always variations depending on the season. An advise: always take the food of the... More

Dei Catari is that place that you close your eyes and it seems you are being served special local family food (dal plin, fiori di zucca, tajarin) by family members, in a family house either inside or at the garden, in a friendly family approach. But the best is that it is not an impression. It is reality! No luxury... More

We had an excellent dinner with friends at dei Catari. Their terrace is really beautiful and the foods are delicious and prices are not too high. Service is also really friendly. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who visits Monforte d'Alba.

Thank Jutta S
