Hidden slightly out of the sight in the inner courtyard off of Alba's main square, this small homey osteoarthritis works a lot with local farmers to promote and support areas producers. Result? Very solid regional dishes with interesting recipes, and a great small town shop atmosphere. Highly recommend!

Very good food, good wine and excellent service! What else can you ask? The treat is really delightful, the environment is simple but warm, the rithm is great as they keep you "busy" but still giving you time to rest between different dishes. The quality and presentation of the food is good. Maybe the "gnocchi" cheese sauce was a little... More

We had lunch in a very snowing day. It was a wonderful meal. The appetizers were very good, and all main courses, as well, but the "star" was the gnocchi!

Juxtaposition of almost stately laid-back elegance with studious attention to slow food scruples. For all that, one of the finest meals we had in Piedmont. Traditional appetizer offerings, like the carne cruda, were well-prepared with characteristically fresh ingredients. We tried the outrageously rich 40-egg Tajarin, with and without white truffles commemorating the season: both versions well worth having. Unobtrusive but... More

Went for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food is very high and the attention they ive to each plate is visible, the wine list is extensive and has reasonable prices. The décor leaves a little to be desired however it must be noted that it is typical for the area and is plain in comparison to... More

We had dinner here with a german couple on a truffle tasting tour and chose to try this restaurant after reading so many exciting reviews on TA. We had expected to find prices on the expensive side but also expected the quality to match the prices. Instead the rabbit was not up to the standard probably been cooked much earlier... More

Table booked 2 months ahead. But cold welcome. Made us wait 30 minutes without a smile. Paid no attention to us. Made us feel like we were a big problem for them.

We were exited about this restaurant because we heard very good about it and we were for sure not disappointed. There is a good and relaxed atmosphere both with the interior and the staffing, they seem to enjoy it. The risotto is probably the best I have ever tried. Got the rabbit afterwards which also was spotless. My friends also... More

Had dinner with the family during white truffle season. The uova in cocotte with white truffles was one of the best versions I have tried. Lovely balance and light texture, in contrast to some versions where it can be too rich. The rest of the family had very good carne cruda, tajarin with sausage ragu and grilled squid. The sliced...

I was hesitant to visit after I read a review below about the ambience (80's neon lights). Not sure if we were at the same restaurant, but I can advise there are no neon lights and I certainly wouldn't call it 80s! I'm glad we didi visit! We dropped in on the off chance we would get a table and... More
