We write very few poor reviews, but this will be one. Compared to other places we ate in Asti, both the food and service were below the others. The white truffle pasta dish we ordered (25 euros) had only a few crumbs of truffle on it. A couple other dishes were bland. And once our food was delivered, our waitress... More

In a small street, the restaurant seems tiny but it's huge and beautiful. Quality products and a big choice of wine. We tried the wine : asti barbera "la grisa" it was perfect, sweet and tasty as we like! Antipasti, pasta and meat (the veal is amazing if you are anmet lover). Try it, you will love it!

Managed to get a table by heading there early and was well rewarded. The food selections are short, but there's something for everyone whether you're vegetarian, a meat eater or prefer fish. I had some fantastic local pasta, perfectly cooked veal and went with a cheese selection for dessert. For wine lovers, particularly those interested in natural or biodynamic wines... More

This was a recommendation from a local and I am so glad we were able to make it here! (closed on Tuesdays, which was the first time we tried going and ended up going on Wednesday for lunch). Daily menu written on the board and a fabulous selection of wines both by the glass and the bottle. Both the food... More

As wine lover I like to try these small and cosy places where the wine cmes first and then the food completes the the experience. This place is nice and cosy with a typical cellar type of dining room. Very nice wine list with older vintages of most local Piedmontese wines, which are mature now! Service only in Italian, which...

A casual and cozy place which offers a varied selection of tasty dishes and good wine (try "In Pectore") served quickly and courteously. A dependable spot for a lovely meal...or just to sample a glass of wine or two!

There really is no weak link here, as these guys really understand good food and good service. As a wine professional, I'm used to being let down by restaurant wine selections, but this is different, there's something here, priced right, for everyone! Charming place, can't wait to return. Highly recommended.

We had a first class meal selected from the chalk board of daily specials. My wife and I tried almost everything from the board and can honestly say it was one of the best meals we ever have. Beef tartare the star of the show
