Wow was fortunate to have one of my business vendors take me to lunch during my visit to Asti recently and we ended up at the Osteria dell'Eremita Lovely place, small, cozy, very representative of a nice eatery in a village. However the food and wine told a completely different story The local dish to try is the ravioli di... More

Best food in the region, family restaurant with superb vuisin and service. We trusted the owner for vine and he choose perfect red for 15 euro only. It is hard to choose from perfection of culatelo with figi, or pasta with camomile or vitelo at piemonteze. I would say that you will not make mistake what ever choice you make... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner made by the family who runs the restaurant (grand mother for the Pasta, mother as a chef, daughter for waitres and father for the wines and drinks). Pasta's were very tasty and veal was perfect and soft.

My wife and I dined here 23 September 2015 and very much enjoyed the venue, the home-cooked local produce and the simple but elegant service. Excellent wine list and good value overall. Family run business with grandad out front, grandma in the kitchen, daughter serving and (I think we understood this correctly), the pasta is hand-made by the mother-in-law. Great... More

A surprise! This family restaurant with the mama who cooked an excellent meal. Great ambiance, perfect wine, mother in the kitchen, dad, daughter and granddaughter were serving us. When you're in the neighbourhood you must visit this authentic Osteria.

A great place to eat with friends, the pasta dishes are outstandingly good with delicate sauces and pasta so fine you can see through it. No visitor to this restaurant should leave without tasting the pannacotta this without a doubt is the best I have ever tasted, this includes Michelin 3 stars!! The family are all involved and are just... More

What a gem, to find an authentic and tiny, family-run osteria, in the pretty village of Castell'Alfero. Just 10km north of Asti. Lella makes what is undoubtedly some of the finest pasta and meat dishes anywhere, and her husband Gianni serves with care and a great sense of humour!! Beautiful daughter Sandra takes the orders and will steal your heart.... More

If you're in Castell'Alfero then it's convenient, though not in the same league as Ristorante del Casot above the village. The food is authentic but unassuming. A table in the corner is reserved for the hermit
