We ate at the Trattoria Dell'Alba while visiting friends in Lombardy, Italy. We had been assured it was a great place to eat and our expectations were more than met. The owner was friendly and very welcoming. The food was traditional Lombardy fare and the wines of the region were delightful. We ended the meal with some of their homemade... More

This is a place you would want to keep a secret but it is so good you want to share it with other people. They make the most wonderful food based on local ingredients and on old recies, try the vitello tonnata according to gransmothers recipe. We came back the next day to have the delicious summer truffels of which... More

This traditional trattoria is worth a deviation from main highways. Domestic atmosphere, old fashioned interior, fantastic Lombardian food. We had pasta as the first meal and roast beef and goose with mostarda as the second meal. Roast beef was one of the best I've ever had, goose was tender and so tasty, served with two different "mostarda di frutta". Sevice... More

I had a business lunch at this lovely trattoria, which was fantastic. The owner personally explained what food they had to offer and how it was prepared, it was all delicious! Then got us tasting different proseccos without even charging us, just for fun. Honestly priced and very tasty food!

We visited this small local trattoria before going to Dal Pescatore. It is a lovely place, where the owner does all the service. They make great wine: a local specialty lambrusco mantovano, which is really fanstastic. They also serve several local dishes, among others spicy and sweet fruit in syrup called mostarda. Great atmoshpere, very helpful owner, very tasty and... More

The usual recommendation - do not ask for the menu but ask your host what is the special of the day. The take that everything arrives at the same time, nobody has to wait for the other. And they do not pressure you to eat and leave the place. Service is rustic but adequate. Choice of open wines is great.... More

My second visit to this restaurant was possibly even better than the first. The initial visit I really had no expectations, and as such the quality of the food and experience overall was so good I had little to compare it to. It's unexpectedness clouded the actual experience a little I guess. Visiting again last weekend, again with a big... More

Driving between Cremona and Mantua around lunch time, my wife and I, at the road sign pointing for Piadena, decided it was time to look for a Trattoria and we followed the direction to town. We stopped outside a very unpretending sign to read the menu and found the place was posting much recognition from the Michelin Guide and the... More

La Trattoria del Alba is a restaurant that has always been famous for the respect of the local culinary traditions. Omar and his brother are now fully in charge of the restaurant. Omar takes care of his hosts with a lot of passion and talent. He verbally gives an overview of the various offers of the day and gently answers... More
