If you are discovering the beauties of Monferrato, this is the perfect place for a gourmet lunch or a romantic dinner. The restaurant is located in an old monastery and has an incredible view. High quality food and excellent service.

Lu is a city in the middle of nowhere....no it is in the middle of Piemont and whenever you have the chance to be there then go to Antico Monastero. Make a reservation and ask for a table on the balcony and you will have a spectacular view.
The service is excellent and the menu they served was great and all this for a price of 27€!! Unbelievable
Taste, creativity.....perfect and the wines are anyway good in the Piemont.
Enjoy!

Exceptional experience in a restaurant set in an old monastery with a charming atmosphere and an enchanting view on the Monferrato Hills.

Food was great as well as staff. We enjoyed a full menu with typical cuisine of the Piedmont region.

Service was excellent as well as the care dedicated to my Mother who was not well. Care was exceptional and the kindness reserved to all of us minimized the discomfort of the situation.

A ravishing experience, highly recommended! We will be back for sure and strongly recommend the gorgeous terrace.

A heartfelt thank you!

We had a wonderful dinner, based on pumpkin and mashroom dishes, seasonal ingredients at the time of our visit. The service was kind, carefoul, humorous and quick. We very much enjoyed the classic and recently renovated dining room, and the majestic atmosphere of the former monastry the restaurante is located within.
Excellent value for money.

The most amazing food and wonderful service with great wine, too. Have been twice and both times were marvellous. Rooms were incredibly spacious, a perfect place to stop over on your tour of Piedmont.
