Nice location ,
Small and very comfortable if you like " home atmosphere ".

I suggest to call and take reservation in advance if you like invite some peoples : limitation to numbers of tables is the only limitation.

Very best regards.

Regards

Our bicycle tour guide book recommended "Cavolo a Meranda" for dinner. It was splendid good. For antipasti we had among others anchovies with capers and Italian style garpacho soup.
Reservation for dinner is needed, otherwise you will stay without dinner. Restaurant is not big.
Wine selection is on shown on shelves and you can check it by yourself which wine you prefer. It is good because the bottle gives more information than just name of a wine on wine list.
Staff was kind, helpful and explained for us some courses in English - our Italian language knowledge was not enough to understand all in menu.

for the uninformed, bagna cauda is a Piemontese speciality made from a base of anchovies and garlic, eaten with fresh and cooked vegetables in a special bowl with a flame underneath to keep it warm.

every home in Piemonte will have some variant on the recipe. we have had it with an apple cooked into and even cream. at Il Cavolo a Merenda today, we had it served with the vegetables and also some raw meat to cook in the bagna cauda as well as an egg.

haven eaten bagna cauda in a number of places, we will say that this is one of the best examples we have had.

we now want to try the restaurant for a regular meal.

at this point, we recommend it highly, at least for the bagna cauda.
