“Good, honest Piemontese food!”

Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 September 2016

We had no idea what to expect from Al Picchio but a physician friend recommended it highly so we went last Saturday evening. We were the first ones there but within a hour, the place was full. The dining room holds about 50 people with room downstairs and some seats outside when the weather cooperates. This is a fixed menu, fixed price restaurant. The food, as the title states, is good, honest Piemontese food.

The table had been set with various salami slices as well as bread sticks and sliced bread in a bag as well as a bottle of spumante. My wife sampled the salamis and pronounced them some of the best she had ever had. The bread sticks were quite good, seemed hand rolled. The bread was good.

The next course was "carne crudo" (raw chopped beef) which we passed on. Next was Russian salad, a popular dish in this area but nothing like my Russian wife nor I make.

Vegetables were served along with rabbit and chicken dishes followed by pieces of beef. The meal was finished by dessert which my wife said was one of the best pannacotta (flan) she had ever had.

All in all, we were not disappointed and will go again. Highly recommended!!
