Ate lunch at Ostetia Del Vicoletto. They have a rich menu of local dishes and wines. The restaurant is nicely furnished and tastefully decorated. The food was great. Had Tadjine as starter and braised beef as main. The vegetables that came with the beef were a bit overcooked. Fairly priced.

This was the best meal we had on our trip in the Langhe. Very reasonably priced for the quality of food, presentation & service. The pasta & gnocchi were delicious & perfect portion sized. plenty of well priced wines.

Good wine recommendation and fairly good service. Disappointed with the pasta dish, lacked flavour. Lamb though was beautiful and so were the accompanying vegetables (would have liked more). A good chocolate fondente and homemade ice cream to finish. A good meal. Would only go back if I couldn't get into my favourite place in town Enosfizioteca Conterosso!

with high expectation, had dinner on a sunday evening, fully booked, we had the last table near the entrance. the veal is quite ordinary and not much flavor, bit on the dry side too. the fowl slightly better but not gourmet standard. price is reasonable.

We only had one night in Alba and chose well! We had crispy guinea fowl in rosemary, lamb shank, lentil soup with crispy bacon and great wine. Nice ambiance and service.

There is a lot of care in this restaurant. Beware: few tables, gets easily full. Reserve in advance. All our dishes were spot-on. This team knows very well their craft. Note: you can buy some antipasti and other food to take.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the owner welcoming and the food is to die for! Every single dish we ordered was simply delicious! We tried the other well known Restaurants in Alba, but personally, Osteria Del Vicoletto surpassed them all.

Hidden in small lane and not so easy to find. Actually that day we couldn't find a table in other two restaurants. When we passed by and saw it we decided to give it a try. The food was just good as it should be in good ristorante of Italy. The "cardi", as an antipasto, was the most impressive dish.... More

A small secluded (can be hard to find :) restaurant in Alba with all the traditional dishes perfectly executed and some more modern variations, all worth tasting. A complete and reasonable wine list, attentive service, and reasonable prices - what more could you ask for.

We stopped in last minute for a late lunch and luckily were accommodated. We each had a first course and shared a main dish. Everything was excellent. The gnocchi in cheese fondue with white truffles is a local, fall dish that was perfectly made and for me, is gourmet comfort food. They have a good selection of local wines. This... More
