One of the worst food experiences I have possibly had and I travel the world in search of great food. Sure there have been some misses along the way but not like this. The service here is appalling! The manager (if you can call her that) with short curly hair and wears glasses made me wait for 5 minutes to... More

Very nice modern ambience with soft lights. The food was really amazing in particular the egg raviolo with white truffles. We where advised by the restaurant for the wine and we were very satisfied by it. The only remark is that the restaurant needs at least one more waiter to speed up the service.

Short menu based on the local best dishes prepared according to the traditional way and presented with a beautiful modern twist. Our favorites: battuta di fassone, trittico della tradizione, tajerin al... More

We so enjoyed our lunch at this highly recommended restaurant in the middle of Alba. Our appetizers were "cotecchino", a pork sausage, and a plate of local antipasti. We followed with the local pasta, "tajarin", and a ravioloni filled with egg, cheese, and spinach. Each dish was served in butter with shaved truffle on top. The cost was E35 each.... More

My husband and I were looking forward to having lunch at La Libera on our last full day in Piedmont after reading good reviews of the restaurant. Unfortunately, the poor service really ruined it. We ate there on a Friday afternoon not particularly busy. It took a while for them to get us the menu and then the wine list.... More

Beautifully designed interior and a nice atmosphere. Food was high quality and the white truffles on the tajarin was plenty (fixed price).

Nice small modern restaurant. Huge selection of wines. Nice pastas, great fondue with truffles, nice desserts. A bit expensive. Service was just ok, but they were extremely busy for Alba truffle festival.
