We had lunch a couple of weeks ago,food was great and service too. The waitress look after our table and she was very friendly, nice and very attentive to everything,we share one entree fassona tartare and after i try ravioli with arrosto sauce. I enjoy the dessert too zabaione and gianduiotto fantastic and prize not too expensive.

The restaurant has an ugly conservatory (unless you like them) but inside it is a nice place with enthousiastic personnel that like to help you with serving their great weekly menu's from the board. Try the tartufo with pasta.

Planning to have some white truffles in October/November? You must go to La Piola! It is a laid back local restaurant with dishes to die for... be it during the white truffles season or not.... The location is central, with an outside seating area which is also closed in glass during colder months, overlooking the Piazza and the Duomo! A... More

Big menu, something to please everyone, service is quick - not a 3-hour lunch, for those occasions when you don't want one, and good for larger groups.

See we were warmly welcomed in this fairly ordinary looking restaurant and it made us feel good. Service straits away with good attention. We got very different food and all were very pleased with the quality especially taken price level into consideration. Definitely a good choice

It is located right in the heart of the city. Dining rooms is very spacious and seems to be very popular by looking at the number of people eating there. However we are not very impressed particularly with the service. They are pretty slow and mixing orders. We did not get what we ordered although we waited quite a long... More

Charming little Italian restaurant in the heart of Alba! The service was very good and the food was very good as well. We are in Alba for the White Truffle Festival so naturally we had white truffles almost every meal. Their traditional egg pasta dish would have been good regardless of the sauce...the cocotte was outstanding...highly recommend you give this... More

Highly Recommended This was my third visit to La Piola, and I have not been disappointed. The dishes featured locally grown produce and farm raised meats, the salads and soups tasted fresh. Because the menus change each day (I attached a photograph of the version offered on 27 Sep 2016) I am in,fined to believe the food was fresh. I... More

We came here for my birthday dinner on a Thursday evening, as the restaurant was recommended by our land lady and TripAdvisor. We had booked the table one day in advance and were situated in the glass enclosed part in front of the main restaurant. When we arrived at 19:30 it was still pretty empty. The service lady hardly spoke... More
