“Hidden gem”
Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

From the outside this restaurant looks fairly unassuming. Located in the beautiful historical streets of Avigliana, this was really good value for dinner. The food was very good and the service was quirky but friendly. We ordered four glasses of pudding wine and were given the rest of the bottle for free! The outside grotto looked particularly appealing but sadly it was full, however inside was also very comfortable.

“Traditional cuisine”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

We ate there on a Tuesday night and it was busy with locals. Always a good recommendation. Staff were friendly although only spoke Italian. The food was delicious and plentiful.

“Ring the bell”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

This restaurant looked closed but we rang the bell on the advice of two local residents. So glad we did.
There were six of us, including two children, and the food was excellent, the house wine very nice, the setting charming and very elegantly set for lunch. The service efficient and warm. Would love to come again, and again....
I agree with other reviewers that the antipasti is delightful if you want a light lunch, otherwise it is well worth ordering the degustation menu. A hearty bowl of pasta might also help you to get up the mountain to see the monastery! The town of Avigliani is small and charming.

“What a wonderful place!”
Reviewed 22 October 2012

We go since over 20 years around mid octobre to the region of the due laghi near Avigliana. This time we were 16 persons and we went for the first time to the Trattoria Croce Bianca. It was probably one of the best experiences we ever had in Piemont. We had 6 cold antipasti (nice toast with speck, delicious vegetables in tomato sauce, the probably best vittelo tonnato I ever had, formaggini, carne cruda (tartare) a la piemontese and 1 warm antipasti, 2 primi (gnocchi a la bava and agnolotti die carne als sugo di brasato) and a main course (tagliata die bue, porcini e polenta) plus desert. No more comments. If you are in the region, do't miss it.
