Exceptional experience in a restaurant set in an old monastery with a charming atmosphere and an enchanting view on the Monferrato Hills.

Food was great as well as staff. We enjoyed a full menu with typical cuisine of the Piedmont region.

Service was excellent as well as the care dedicated to my Mother who was not well. Care was exceptional and the kindness reserved to all of us minimized the discomfort of the situation.

A ravishing experience, highly recommended! We will be back for sure and strongly recommend the gorgeous terrace.

A heartfelt thank you!

We had a wonderful dinner, based on pumpkin and mashroom dishes, seasonal ingredients at the time of our visit. The service was kind, carefoul, humorous and quick. We very much enjoyed the classic and recently renovated dining room, and the majestic atmosphere of the former monastry the restaurante is located within.
Excellent value for money.

The most amazing food and wonderful service with great wine, too. Have been twice and both times were marvellous. Rooms were incredibly spacious, a perfect place to stop over on your tour of Piedmont.

Planned here my wedding party with relatives, friends and colleagues coming from abroad (they stayed in the hotel and they found it amazing).
The food (8 appetizers buffet, 2 starters, 2 primi, 2 secondi, wedding cake, mixed desserts, wine), the location, the organizer and staff were simply perfect. I couldn't have asked better.
I strongly recommend it for wedding celebrations and events.

We ate ay Monastero as we had booked into the (attached) Archielogico. It was wonderful - nice ingredients, perfectly prepared and with a nice choice of inexpensive local wines. At breakfast the following morning, our table was already prepared and again backed up with locally made foods.

Staff ere terrific - limited English though - so be warned! Buyt well worth the effort to get there.
