Our roots are all about the flavors and colors of typical Piedmont cuisine. Let us recommend the best restaurants / osterie / bistros in the capital of the Langhe.
Piedmont’s culinary tradition, known to many but with much still to be discovered, never ceases to amaze. This is why our area offers a variety of proposals, ranging from menus that stick to the “how it used to be” method to genuine reinventions of age-old tastes. Tonno di coniglio (“rabbit tuna”) can be served in a thousand different ways, and therein lies the beauty!
If you are intrigued by our “good taste”, be prepared to spend a lot of time checking out the local osterie, restaurants and bistros. From lunch to aperitifs and dinner, there is a dish for every occasion. Don’t pass up the chance to try the trio of “insalata russa, battuta di Fassona and vitello tonnato” (Russian salad, Fassona beef tartare and veal with tuna sauce) and tuck into the endless traditional appetizers, don’t forget to try the egg pasta and pasta parcels known as “plin”! Savor the meat main courses and end on a high note with dessert.
