We booked a table for eight 24 hours in advance on Facebook - no problems. Five of us had the tasting menu - great value at €20 for four courses with wine and water. The food was plentiful and authentically local. Lots of antipasti, hot and cold, varied pasta, and beautifully tender meat. The owner served us and was cheerful... More

Restaurant is located at a beautiful picturesque square. We were sitting outside under a nice roof with flowers and climbers. We ordered a penne arrabiata and a ravioli. Both tasted very delicious but the service was very slow. Had to wait very long for drinks and food. Reasonable prices.

Whilst exploring the lovely countryside between Turin and Genoa we stopped in Acqui Terme for a spot of lunch. We wondered around the town in the sunshine, avoiding the busier restaurants on the Main Street and came across Arsenico e Vecchi Merletti looking idyllic in it's square. The photos do not do it justice as the outside eating area is... More

The owner is a very friendly lady passionate for local dishes and antique objects. These objects create a special athmosphere. Worth trying it.

Brilliant lunch here, the pastas were excellent, the vitello tonnato was huge and beautiful. Very drinkable house wine arrived plentifully by the carafe and our party (including quite a few kids) all enjoyed the outside terrace. Service was slow and slightly grimacing (we had to cancel one person's dish as was taking too long) but there were quite a few... More

Opened later than TA indicated. We were the first to sit at 7:30 when the outside tables were prepared. We ordered the Tasting menu at this homestyle restaurnt. The food was good, plentiful and a very good value for money. The dinner was not rushed (some might even say a little slow) and we had a lovely three hour long... More
