I was staying in La Morra and asked for local dinner recommendations each of the first 2 nights I was there. This place was delightful--small, only 7 tables, tasty, and very friendly. Franco, chef owner, and Maurizio, server, spent time discussing food and wine for the evening. I had a local Barolo--2010 Barlotto Acclivi. Starters--tartare, light salad, & carpaccio. Next,...

My wife and I were driving around La Morra and decided to drive on a road that we were not familiar with. After 2 kilometers or so, I noticed a sign that said Verduno and decided to continue. At the end of the road there was a restaurant named Il Falstaff. Turned out to be the find of my culinary... More

If I could give this gorgeous little place the above rating I would. From other trip advisor contributors we booked a table and it certainly didn't disappoint. From our waiter Morris's welcome and knowledge to Franco's wonderful cooking, we were in heaven. Between the four of us we tried almost everything on the menu, so without explaining every dish just... More

Had a late dinner with friends some week ago and had an real culinaristic experience. Very delicious full menu (without any menu), well prepared and served and excellent wines. Very friendly atmosphere. Recommendable.

We had the opportunity to shop for our dinner with Franco and then spend an afternoon with him and his lovely family learning to do some of the dishes - plin and gnocchi and some other tasty items - and returned for one of the best dinners we had in all of Italy the same night. Franco is an elegant... More

well, we enjoy so much the diner on Thursday night (we let ourselves guided by Mauricio's recommendations) that we came back tonight (Saturday night), and were not disappointed. It was again a marvel of taste (Franco in the kitchen is doing wonders). After a couple of fantastic appetizers, as It is of course truffle season, we had pasta with truffle,... More

A really lovely dinner. The chef buys daily at the market and cooks what he can get. Thus there is no menu. The maitre d' explains course by course what is available. We were served with 3 starters, followed by a choice out of 5 pasta corpses, then a choice of 5 main courses. By that stage there was no... More

Visited this restaurant four times in one week while we stayed in Verduno. We were three vegetarians and two meat eaters. We got four different menus designed by the terrific chef (Franco) to meet our needs. Every course on all four nights was outstanding. Maurizio (front of house) introduced us to a range of wines we had never encountered. He... More

We had dinner here a few weeks ago. We'd left the choices up to Mauricio, our waiter. We gave him an idea of what we had in mind. What they brought out of the kitchen was just amazing. It was fresh, it was tasty. Mauricio was very knowledgable about local wines, artists and venues. Chef came out after our meal... More

Revisited after my last first experience last year. Essentially we ate what the chef made, which included the Battuta di Fassone with black truffles, Tajarin with white alba truffle, quiche tart, beef cheeks, various mushroom dish, an assorted chocolate dish and a hazelnut torte with milk ice cream and raspberries. Unbelievable food and for 2 persons without drinks was 90... More
