Hidden in the ancient part of town in front of Silvio Pellico's house, away from the tourist restaurants, you will find the Osteria. The restaurant has a beautiful terrace in the small and quiet square. We had the "toma tartufata al forno" a typical cheese of the area but truffled cooked in the oven. Delicious! Also took the "peperoni bagno cauda" dish specific to the Piemonte region. It is made of grilled peppers without the skin then left in a sillky sauce made of anchovies, garlic and a drop of cream. Sounds rough but it is very subtle and soft. We then had the "troccoli", a little thicker spaghetti with ragú (tomato sauce with three types of minced meat, cooked for hours in red wine) and small juicy meatballs. Excellent! To finish off a veal cutlet with small onions and vegetables. Very good indeed. As wine a bottle of red from the cellar of Pio Cesare, a local producer with good wines at good prices. We skipped the desserts as we really could not fit anything else!
All this for me and my wife for only 65 euros! Atmosphere quiet and discreet, in a way typical of Piemonte! Will go again and again !!! Recommend without reserve!
