This is a dream of a restaurant in a tiny commune in the middle of Barolo vineyards. Hugely popular with locals. We were lucky to be staying in Villa Crissante just up the hill so could walk there in 10 minutes. All the local Piedmontese specialities and excellent value. The dishes were super quality, all delicious down to the final petits fours and service was efficient and friendly. This is a serious restaurant of proper tablecloths and candles set in beautiful countryside and there is no better place to be on a summer evening. Be aware that it is not open every day.

We went as a group of 7 (5 adults and two teens)for lunch. The adults all had the tasting menu (38 euros/each) and the teens chose their courses. The quality of the food was exceptional and abundant. The preparation and presentation was also excellent and creative. We spent two hours without even noticing. The service provided by our waiter Marino was superb - friendly, knowledgeable and solicit without being overbearing. I would highly recommend it to everyone deciding to spend a day in the Langhe region of Piedmont. I will definitely go back next time I'm in the area.

We were a group of 7 having an evening dinner at L'Osteria del Vignaiolo. The food and wines were really good and we enjoyed it a lot. This evening, the restaurant was fully booked and service was a bit slow and then unfriendly when we had the attention of the waiter.
Most of the guests were tourists from abroad and when the menue is only in Italian, the staff should be prepared to answer some questions about the various dishes. In this case, they did not have the capacity nor the language knowledge to answer and then ordering etc takes unnessesary long time.
When the food and wine arrived, everything was very nice until the new dish was put on the table without explenation or a smile. This could very easily have been a perfect evening with some small adjustments and some smiles.
However, the food and wine will bring us back!

The restaurant is located in Santa Maria, a few kilometers from La Morra. We decided to visit for lunch instead of dinner.

We dinned in a very comfortable, nicely decorated room with good spacing between tables.

First the amuse-bouche, a vegetable salad typical for the area. It was a type of potato salad with diced carrots and green peas. In this case it also had a slice of smoked salmon on top.

We started with the grilled shrimp with porcini mushrooms, served on a thin layer of pastry. Beautiful plate presentation with a nice blend of flavors.

We followed that with the three cheese ravioli with a black truffle sauce which they split for us in the kitchen.

For entrees we selected the tuna and the grilled lamb chops. Both were beautifully presented with nice sides and they were perfectly prepared.

No dolce, but we did receive this plate of candy and fruit with the coffee.

Next time we want to dine outside and enjoy the view.
