So, my wife and I know how to eat. We're from San Francisco, which is arguably a top contender for the world's best food cities. We stumbled onto this place for lunch and had one of the best meals of our lives.

It's not cheap but it's Michelin-level food, wine, and service. They bring out several amuse and pour some insanely good stuff by the glass. Deserts were incredible, the foie they served was generously portioned and our waiter was on point.

All in, if you're in Piemonte, go here for sure.

This was our last dinner after our 5 day stay in the area. The restaurant is located in the town of Guarene in a very quiet street and it has indoor (very inviting, cozy & nice decor) & outdoor dining ( the furniture is a bit tired & not as welcoming as indoors).
The menu is interesting: it takes a while to understand the varios offerings but the staff is very helpful explaining them.
The Chef's welcoming appetizers were a nice addition: the initial was a home made pizza - which was good but a bit disappointing as a welcoming dish- until the platter with nicely displayed little & delicious creations arrived: immediately we were impressed with he flavors & creativity- the plain pizza was just odd & not representative of the delicious dinner we were about to have!

The appetizers we ordered included their fish platter - perfect combinations & delicate flavors, definitely a must order there! The varios Primi & Secondo were all nicely presented & full of flavors with interesting twists!
When at the end of the meal the Chef Davide Odore came to the table, we complemented him telling him he made every dish look so refined & delicate (surely s lot of work behind the scenes)!

The staff was very attentive.
The only critique is the people smoking as we are outdoors -which really take away a lot of the great experience.
Quality/value was good for the food, some local wines seemed a bit to high in their wine list.
Overall great dinner, highly recommend it.

Beautiful terrace with a scenic view on vineyards, wonderful food and great atmosphere. Recommended for a romantic dinner or for a relaxed dinner with few friends.

Great vegetarian choice as well!

We had a nice dinner here, the service was good, the appetizers and the starters were excellent, the dessert too and each of them presented like in a real gastronomic restaurant. Our only disappointment was the main course: we choose truffle, as it was the season, but it had so little taste that I guess it was an old one, already passed his "expiry date". For the price (EUR 40 for just one course with truffle), it was frustrating. It was really a pity because we felt that the chef made efforts to satisfy us.
