“Excellent cuisine, limited commentation”

Wide range of menus and a very generous wine list. We chose the traditional menu and menu de terra. The chef took us on a journey through the Piedmont terroir. Each dish simple, cooked to perfection and well balanced. Attentive staff and comfortable setting. The only remark is the limited commentation of the staff on specific questions regarding the preparation and cooking techniques being used

This is a superb place that offers an unbeatable quality-price service. The house is splendid in the middle of its wineyard and the menus are well balanced and interesting. Although our menu was of (relatively) unequal level, our meal in general was certainly worth the Michelin star of the house, with no real deception and a couple of superb dishes. The terrace is very pleasant and the service efficient and professional, if not specially friendly. Our only criticism might be about the service pace that was perhaps a bit too fast (but better than the opposite!). Impressive wine list, good breads, good coffee. Extremely reasonable prices. Definitely worth the detour.

First of all, spectacular setting. Close to Alba, but set in the rolling vineyards above. If you get there early, they have a nice enoteca for tasting/buying. Their Roero Arneis, their flagship white, is great. Given that the estate is owned by a family well known in the textile/fashion industry, the decor inside is impeccable and chic. Then the food...wow. They offer various tasting menus (truffles, sea, land...). We opted for truffles and were brought 5-6 courses of amazingly presented, delicious dishes. To top it off, a series of fantastic desserts. If you want a creative, fresh approach to Piedmont dishes, this is the place. No wonder they just earned a Michelin star.
