The Osteria dell’Archivolto opened in 1999 by the Papalia brothers offers an excellent Piedmontese cuisine in a family atmosphere. Since 2018, the “Cellar” has been opened, entrusted to a young yet experienced maître and sommelier, Orilia Luca, first maître of the 5 stars L hotel Miramare in Sanremo, and before that, second maître of Villa Crespi by Antonino Cannavacciuolo. The kitchen by mutual agreement with the tavern allows the cellar to present itself as a classy bistro, accompanying the wine with authentic delicacies. The wines obviously dominate the scene with over 1500 labels displayed through the modern and elegant rooms. Thanks to the “Coravin” system, you can enjoy glasses of different important labels without being required to purchase the whole bottle. The dishes on the menu change according the seasonality. The appetizers, like Spanish tapas, look really refined: meat, like Fassona minced beef with Roccaverano foam or foies gras escalope with caramelized black truffle; fish, oysters, stuffed anchovies, crispy shrimp cocktail or cod fritters. The restaurant has a special menu proposal for vegetarians with home grown vegetables. Breadsticks, brioche, focaccia and cakes are all homemade. Always impeccable service. The wines on the menu cover all price categories and the policy chosen by the restaurant aims to maintain reasonable prices and in a proper relationship with quality.
