Looking for a restaurant that was open in San Damiano, we stumbled across Madama la Barbera's modestly signposted Osteria, walked in and grabbed the last table available. No menu and only a choice of wine by the glass. Six courses, but reasonably sized and all very good indeed. Simple but well executed and good value!

A charming town, San Damiano d'Asti, with the perfect local restaurant right in the main piazza! Chef Mario cooks up delicious local dishes; their local Barbera d'Asti wine is delicious and reasonable and Susanna, Mario's wife and co-owner is a complete delight! We had so much fun chatting away in Italian that we're going back again tonight! Such a warm... More

Hidden in the corner of the Piazza Liberta is one of the best typical Piedmontese restaurants we have eaten at. Only five tables and a limited menu but----wow---what great cooking.

The restaurant is located in the Piemonte town of San Damiano. The restaurant is very quaint and the food is fresh and delicious Italian food in a warm friendly atmosphere.

We had the lovely experience of dining at Madama la Barbera in April 2013, sampling dishes from a wonderfully varied menu of regional specialities. Everything was delicious (and generous portions) at very reasonable prices. The service was excellent and the atmosphere comfortable. If you find yourself in the Piemonte area, do stop here -- you'll be glad you did.

Quality of cuisine is at its top. Excellent attendance and very nice choice of wine. And all this for a very very reasonable price. Do not hesitate, even if you have to drive some kms to San Damiano d'Asti.
