Good food, I had the superb 'tajarin' with white truffle, one of the speciality here and they were gorgeous. People is nice and place is comfortable. Good choice if you're in the city of Cherasco.

I really liked the ambience of an old style trattoria set down in a kind of "cellar". The service was good and very patient with us. We had a great time and really can't complain about the food. I didn't eat the snails but my...More
