Expensive price for the Osteria. Cooks are not compatible with simple spices. Meat fresh water. Waiters forget orders. Somehow quite a failure. The biggest failure - a plate of antipasti. Maybe it's just we were not lucky? The only plus - a decoration of the hall. It is really interesting.

This is a good place to have a lunch - short menu on a single page with the same price, 6 EUR for any dish. Service is good and all meal was perfectly cooked.

This is a nice restaurant in Alba. We had a light lunch of 'tapas' - lonzino, tanglier and saracens - plenty of food. Service can be slow but both waiters tried hard to accommodate everyone in the restaurant. Well worth trying.

Food was ok, but the service was less than acceptable. We had to wait almost one hour for our first course to be served. After finishing our pasta dish we waited another 20 minutes for our meat dish, but the kitchen got our order wrong, so we were served the same pasta dishes twice! Ok it was a Saturday evening,...

We were originally intending to have lunch in the main square, but very soon discovered that this is not a very good idea in the heat of July. This place looked like a suitable alternative, but I was a lttle worried that it might be a tourist trap. Thankfully, I was wrong. The servers were very helpful and efficient, my... More

First of, i want to thank and congratulate with Angelo, CHef Owner at L'osteria dell'oca, for putting together a very simple but effective menu and wine list... More

Once upon a time in a country far far away there was a group of amazing colleagues enjoying a nice dinner all together. They met up in a nice restaurant of which the owner made a deal that even the Dutch and the Bulgarian could appreciate. Grazie Mille a tuti!

This is a relaxed place with a cool, vintage-y vibe for lunch. I've been twice and ordered gnocchi al Castelmagno (excellent, creamy, not too heavy but just right) and the risotto alla zucca, or pumpkin risotto (another great choice! So delicious, I went home and tried to replicate it the next night). They have several good wines (Dolcetto, Barolo, Barbaresco,... More

Found this restaurant by chance. I had the "Frittura Mista" (fried seafood platter) and it was so very good. It smelled and tasted very fresh. My husband had "Cinghiale" (boar) with roasted potatoes. He said it was very tender and tasty. Prices reasonable, and we would definitely eat there again.

Another "off the main square" find in Alba, this restaurant drew us in with its lace curtains and a warm welcome by a couple who appeared to have been hosting this dining room for many decades. The vitello tonnato we shared for a primo was 6 or 7 slices of rare poached veal around a scoop of tuna-mayo which was... More
