We visited for dinner (quite late in the evening) in July. Be prepared to drive through picturesque countryside, and along narrow winding streets in quaint villages to reach this place. Once you arrive, the food is simple but delicious! We strongly recommend the antipasti to begin with. The ricotta is absolutely devine!

The setting is peaceful, nestled in a small town surrounded by forest. The Sunset and view from this location is incredible.

Very tasty, simple place with the region traditions and Piedmont cuisine. We were at lunch, ordered antipasts, risotto with toma cheese and pasta with ragy. All dishes were perfect! Fresh baked bread, rustic goat cheese and "salsa verde Piemontese" were excellent quality! Thanks so much Faina! A picturesque place with not so many tourists and normal prices.

Strange meal out, but with charm and great food. The host simply asks you if you would like a selection of starters, which was great, salamis, cheeses, pickled mushrooms, gherkins and onions, and baked sweet peppers. Then he asks if you would like the special risotto, with mushrooms - again, really tasty. We were then offered bistekke (which we had no room for because we were already full!). We did manage desserts though, a small but ample selection. All washed down with a litre of wine. 5 people ate very well and drank wine, for 78 euros, so great value and charming place to eat, despite limited English.

This place is just down from the villa we were staying in and came highly recommended by the villa owner. The service was perfect, menu was excellent with a small but varied choice. Prices for quality of food were very reasonable.

The food was excellent, steak cooked perfectly and so much flavour. Would highly recommend.
