Half of the food was top class and half was ok! Wines were very good priced, service was below average. Price performance was 7 out of 10, so worth visiting but don't keep expectations to high.

A 12 day business visit to Alba and this restaurant was recommended by one of the staff in the hotel. Not easy to find (it's in a little square behind the horses rear in Piazza Michele Ferrero/Piazza Sivona) but well worth a visit. Very pleasant...More

A foody trip in Alba would not be complete without visiting this headquarters of 'Slow Food'. It is neatly tucked behind a large piazza, quite tricky to find, but well worth the effort. The interior is typical Piedmont and within 30 minutes of our arrival...More
