We decided to eat close to our hotel which was out of the center of Alba so tried this restaurant and it was clear that this is where the locals come to eat. Excellent fresh pasta, decent wine and nice wood fired pizza. Simple, delicious!

When I am in Alba (center) this is one of the only 2 pizza places I frequent. The pizza is pretty big and very tasty. They have good tap beer. Their staff is very efficient and polite.

Whether it's lunch or dinner La Pignatta's delicious pizza and wine is the best in Alba. Dare to try the Gargonzola and Onion Pizza with a bottle of Paolo Scavino Nebbiolo.

The place is a little outside of alba city center, we walked maybe 20 minutes, but it was worth it. Very good pizza, lots of choices, and the pasta was also very good. It is an easy pizzeria, not a fancy restaurant, this one has...More
