This restaurant was recommended to me by an Italian friend. For me, it ticks all the boxes - excellent food with a local flavour, great service and atmosphere and superb wines. Very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Classic Piemontese Hosteria with excellent Food. Not for the faint of heart. This is heavy, traditional, earthy Local cuisine Ate there in 1996 , 2006 and Oct 2017 And still great with an excellent wine list. Highly recomnend but be ready to eat!

Popular with the locals this unassuming trattoria hides sensationally simple authentic tasty food and has a wine list to die for. Highlights for me were a Gaja Barbstesco 2013 and Barolo from Sandrone and Vietti.

Booking essential. Bright, busy restaurant with excellent food and service. Presentation of food not as finessed as some but certainly taste not compromised.
