Location and contact

Il Cavallo Scosso is a choice of passion, quality, tradition and research. Our passion for cooking meets the research of the best natural ingredients which are selected extremely carefully to always obtain the best result possible. We prefer products from the area, but in our menu there always are some national and international excellent ingredients because we believe that gastronomy's evolution is to be limitless: where there's quality there are no boundaries. We love to shop our groceries day by day,prepare daily our fresh pastas, our bread and bread-sticks with biological flours and slow rising only to offer our clients the best that we can.. Our kitchen is constantly evolving, we always have typical dishes and natural ingredients which are part of Piedmont's tradition, but we often add courses made with products which are not on the area on our menus. Il Cavallo Scosso proposes a smart but not too formal environment, composed by 30 covers so that we can give every guest a good attention. Respecting our philosophy,relative to sustainability, the restaurant is located inside a small villa completely built with wood, using the most cutting edge bio-construction solutions, including the technology plants thanks to which we are able to decrease all wastefulness, consumption and pollution emission.

We made a last minute reservation because this restaurant was close to our hotel passing by Asti just for one night. It was a lucky guess and we were not disappointed. Intimite dining, tasty amuses with a glass of spumante followed by a 4 course...More

We had a 4 course meal. Tuna and veal were in almost every course. One course was so-so, one was very good and one was outstanding. The desserts were outstanding.

Evening started well when we were almost the only diners in the restaurant. The welcome fizz and little starter were good. Our starters were excellent. Then we had to wait a bit for the mains, but again all 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed it. 3...More

A very cozy, hidden restaurant in a residential area with excellent and creative cuisine, as well as attentive service. See pictures of some of the dishes we had - different choices from different menus. Price/value is great.

We decided on one of the set menus which offered excellent value for money with lots of little extras included (sparkling wine aperitivo, sorbet, chocolates with the coffee etc.) The food, a modern take on traditional Piedmontese cuisine, is delicious and beautifully presented.

We went to this Resturant on our first day in Asti. The decor is modern but lacks atmosphere! It's too light and it feels as if you're sitting in a lab. The price is reasonable for what you eat specially if you're looking in modern...More
