Description: The creative inspiration of Marc Lanteri originates in his intuition and instinct of the moment: everything is reinvented and reinterpreted by Marc using only local ingredients while respecting the rhythm of the seasons. The results are his amazing dishes, which give us a taste of emotion tied to the memory of the past and present made ​​by a great chef . In the dining room Amy Bellotti, sommelier by profession and vocation, is dedicated to the perfect combination of seasonal flavors and the fine wines of Piedmont.

... the quality, taste, wine list, service and overall experiencing was superb. By far the best in my six day trip trough Tuscany, Liguria and Piedmont, and believe me the competition was fierce. If you add to this a perfect setup like the Castle of Grinzane Cavour, no more words are needed. Just superb...

With no preliminary expectations, after a tour in the castle. We went down to eat something..

It was just great and really good surprise. Give you something to look for..

Menu is expensive, but worth every euro.
Recommended !!

We had booked months earlier as a combined Big birthday and a reward for completing the 400km Europe Peace Walk
We chose the €130 Degustation with matching wines and were taken from taste sensation to sensation.
Everything was impeccably presented and delivered, Amy "floated" from table to table in calm control, all the staff were discretely attentive, Chef introduced himself earlier in the evening and a little birthday candle accompanied my desserts
The evening view is stunning and the restaurant setting is calm and romantic
We had a a superb evening, one to remember

We ate here two nights in a row and had two very different experiences. On the first night the food and service was only average while on the second everything was pretty much perfect. I guess anyone can have a bad day at the office.

Stand out dishes came from the primi section of the menu - gnocchi stuffed with buffalo mozzarella which came with scampi and red shrimp and a daily special of pasta stuffed with goats cheese topped with shaved black truffle.

Try to make sure you leave some room for cheese - which is served before the dessert as it should be . We shared a plate made up of 6 different local cheeses, in variety of styles, which was sublime.

As you would expect the wine list reads like war and peace - all the big names and vintages along with some lesser known and more wallet friendly choices.

My top tip to get the most out of the lovely dining room would be to request a table which has been set up to enable you to enjoy the stunning views (I found it surprising that lots of the tables are laid up so you have your back to the windows).

Highly recommended (on a good night).

The restaurant Castello di Grinzane Cavour Via Castello, Piedmonte, Italy is remarkable, lovely setting, excellent food. The Hosts Amy & Marc Lanteri were very friendly and accommodating.
