The restaurant is family run, extremely professional, yet relaxed and charming. Food is delicious, using traditional recipes, with careful cooking and seasonal produce. Intelligent, knowledgable staff (thanks, Alex) offer helpful advice on an interesting regional menu and fairly-priced wine list. The view from the terrace at lunchtime is unforgettable: vines, hills and ancient towns. Our antipasti (vitello tonnato, zucchini flowers with ricotta and basil, carne crudo, squid with olives and tomatoes, guinea fowl with pickled red onions) went well with excellent bread and grissini. Chef was said to use a 200 year old starter for his sourdough. Lasagne with sausagemeat was perfect, the pasta light and enriched with egg, with crunchy folded edges. Tajarin with ragu was delicious, and just the right size. Pork shin came with a deeply flavoured sauce, and good potatoes - a hefty portion. Hazelnut cake with zabaglione and gelato was a delight, but slightly too sweet for my palate. Large wine list, with superb barbaresco choices, and some bargains. Decent sparkling moscato too. Unforgettable meal.

This is another Piedmont restaurant to add to your list along with Tres and La Piola. The food here was fantastic. My husband tried the raw meat dish, of which he was deathly afraid, and ended up being a convert!!! The vegetarian options weren't as great as some of the other areas but the vegetable flan I had was great but the stuffed and fried squash flowers were even better!!!! Service was amazing and we were fortunate to get a tour of the renovated school turned restaurant. Another mid price range fine dining experience. Will definitely head back if we get a chance.

Which I still do not understand why
It was also deleted from submitted reviews?
So i start afresh but sadly cannot comment on the dishes anymore - which is a pity
Just that much...
Best food in the area this time and we visited famous and starred places- summer truffle, great pasta perfect meat lovely dolce
The enthusiasm of the crew and the freshness of the service impeccable- they want to get even better and are on the right way to do so
Great wine list of course
The quirky building the love and attention to detail...perfect
It shows what you can do with enthusiasm and love for what you do ... watch out for this they will do even better in the future

Unique location with breath taking views over the Barbaresco wine fields. Nice tables indoor or at the terrace. Very friendly and good hospitality. Excellent pure local food with veggies from their own garden. Impressive wine collection from the area. Both service & kitchen do anything to give you a great experience. Easy & free parking. Highly recommended.
