We went for the five course chefmenu and it was a 'wonderful' experience.
Stefano Paganini worked for many years with Davide Palluda and this
shows in his delicious dishes.
A friendly maître guided us perfectly through the evening.
A must go for foodlovers.

Tonight my mother brother sister and I celebrated my mother's 80th Birthday at this incredible restaurant. From the beautiful building to the friendly and professional service to the wonderfully prepared meal this was a truly memorable meal.

We selected the "menu with your eyes closed" with 4 courses including traditional carne cruda and vitello tonnato appetizers. Delicious gnocchi with asparagus as a primo and braised veal as a secondo. Each dish was wonderful with unique and refined flavour not heavy or or overly strongly flavoured just perfect.

We have been to this area before and dined at several top restaurants Stefano Paganini stands out from the rest as our favorite by far. If you plan to spend a day or two or a month in Piemonte make sure a stop at this restaurant is in your plan!

Located in an ancient castello this restaurant has a few rooms furnished with a few tables in each room. Sophisticated interior with white walls and high ceilings gives an echo to all the talks inside. Out of three menues have no doubt to order chef's surprise. You will never regret that! Delicate flavours, combinations of the food will charm you. Make sue You try the starawberry sorbet... It's the best I have ever tried in my whole life!

We were recommended to try this restaurant by one of the local wine producers. It is in wonderful surroundings, i.e. in the castle at Magliano Alfieri, which is a sleepy hillside village off the Alba-Asti motorway. You won't find it by accident. As previous reviews have said Stefano Paganini is a talented, passionate chef who is heading for much greater recognition. His wife also does a great job in front of house. Around €70 per head for 3 superlative courses (+ appetisers and patisserie with the coffee) and top quality wine that included Negro Giuseppe Pian Cavallo Barbaresco 2008 and a Massolino Chardonnay. This was our first time there and we rated the food alongside Al Castello di Grinzano Cavour, La Ciau del Tornavento and Io e Luna, some of our favourite higher-end local restaurants. Our only criticism, if you can call it that, was that some of the servings were a little on the large side, but everything disappeared.

I won't repeat what others have said, I would just encourage others to patronise this restaurant. The location is somewhat isolated but the views from the dining room are quite spectacular with sweeping vistas of the valley below. The Castello is nicely decorated with a calming environment and interesting art on the walls.

We went twice; for lunch we had the three course tasting menu (with three amuse bouche included) whilst for dinner we had the five course Chef's choice menu. The ladies had the fish option and the men the meat option. Everything was fresh, interesting and superbly presented. The wine selection was excellent and exceptionally economically priced. Stefano's wife runs the front of the house in a very able manner and speaks a little English (more restaurant English than general conversation). We had lunch at a Michelin star restaurant in the area and thought this was a much better choice.

Highly recommended.
