Due to the truffle fair in Alba, most of the surrounding restaurants were sold out. Therefore we ventured into the backcountry up in the hills and found an externally unpretentious restaurant. But don’t shy away. The inside is very welcoming and cozy. We enjoyed an adequately sized dinner in four courses, not too much, not too little. Quality of food was oustandig. Advice and service was very personable and enjoyable. Pricing is fair and remunerates the efforts in the kitchen.

I marked this restaurant as a personal favourite and will return whenever I/we can.

During the truffle event in Alba we went to an off the beaten path, to the ristorante Tres. It was an amazing experience and the service was great. I am coming back!

We went for Sunday lunch for my in-laws anniversary. 4 adults.
Beautiful location under the trees on the grass with a cool breeze, really pretty and very comfortable.
When we first arrived the initial impact was a little worrying- the food was served before the bread basket, the white wine was left without an ice bucket which we asked for twice and we asked three times for a bottle of water... however once over that initial hurdle, The food was all absolutely delicious: the welcome tomato cream, the soufflé starter, pasta with fish, ravioli, pork fillet, mixed cheese assortment. The chocolate mousse dessert was divine.
The bread and grissini were fresh and tasty although we had to ask several times for the basket to be replenished.
The owners were friendly (husband serves, wife cooks) and whilst the husband provided great service, the other waiting staff are not up to his standards. This would be my only feedback for improvement and in any case, it won't stop us going back!
Good value for money at c.25€ head excluding wine.
Now we've discovered this place near home, I hope it becomes a regular local spot!
