This restaurant is located in the center, very close to the Count of Cavour's villa and it's a good place where to spend a lunch before visiting it. The restaurant is managed by two brothers - one serving and one cooking - very kind and welcoming. The entrance is small, like a cave: if you arrive before 1 p.m. (the "starting" hour for serving food), a waiter will be waiting for you with a glass of wine and a little starter. In the dining room, simple but cosy, 40 places, a little bit too crowded, but well dressed. There are three or four menus, with different costs (from 26 Euros to 40 Euros, without wine) and are illustrated by the owner in person. The cheapest includes a series of appetizers (hot and cold) tied to the the local tradition, but reinterpreted with a touch of fantasy (the anchoves in green sauce, served on pumpkin bread slices are delicious), filled pasta (agnolotti) and rice first courses, a main course (brasato al barbaresco) with chips potatoes, traditional cakes. More than enough for a strong stomach. Good selection of wines, with the possibility to take with you the unfinished, but paid, bottle. Large parking area in front of the restaurant. Booking appreciated, on sundays expecially.
