LA Duchessa is a small Pizzeria in the old town of Alba. The majority of visitors were Italians. This was the case in both cases as we enjoyed the pizza there twice.
he food, priamrily pizzas is really excellent and we enjoyed the fantastic service outside where the restuarant simply occupied a small plazza to extent their outside seating capacity. Though well decorated ! It was just fun sitting outside inold Alba ennjoying the warm summer evening as well as the good food and excellent wine.
And everything was very resonable priced - not to say rather cheap.

In short: absolutely worth to remember !

We highly enjoyed our pizzas at this very popular restaurant! Sat outside on what seemed like a parking at daytime, but they managed to make a special and familiar ambiance at night. We especially enjoyed that all the other guests were locals; big families of several generations. Great pizza! (Possible to order "half/half" if you can't decide from the large meny!)

Best pizza in Alba Piemonte. Located in a small piazza/ parking space.
Very fresh and quality ingredients.
The staff is very friendly

This was a very popular place, seemingly plenty of locals on a Saturday nite in Alba. We arrived at 8:30 and told there would be a 30 minute wait. It turned into 40 minutes but we were seated at a very nice table. Then the pizzas took over 20 minutes to arrive, but it was clear the kitchen was really busy. We got the 4 cheese and the Liguria (strachinno cheese and pesto (of which there could have been a little more!)). If not the best pizzas we've ever had, quite good. The crust was delicious with excellent charring from the wood burning pizza oven. Lots of other food offerings as well, which people around us were ordering also along with the pizzas.
Outside seating was not very pleasant, as you are basically in a sloping parking lot, so we were glad to be in the glass enclosed porch. Indoor seating available also. Downside was a single user toilet (with a seat! Which you don't always get in Italy!) and the line for it was long sometimes.
FYI. Pizzas are substantial single person size. They'll fill you up!
