Ristorante Cucina Gambaro
After the experience at the “Crota” of Mondovì, the chef Daniele Gambaro with his wife Alessandra has now moved to Vicoforte in the place that housed the “Moretto” restaurant. The room has been renovated with an elegant yet informal style, featuring warm colors. The welcome is taken care of by Alessandra who is always kind and careful to explain the dishes and the ingredients. Daniele offers creative cuisine with local ingredients without hiding his Ligurian origins. Aromatic herbs, pesto and focaccia are intertwined with fresh fish from Liguria and local excellences, in particular cheeses, meats and vegetables. In a proper quality/price ratio we find among the appetizers a crunchy sesame bundle with pears and bra tenero Dop cheese (9 €) or the creamed cod with Evo oil with green sauce and fried bread (12 €), among the first the potato gnocchi with cocoa white pheasant ragout and black truffle (18 €) and Trofie al pesto (in season) with the addition of potatoes and green beans (12 €). Among the second courses the veal stew with milk and hazelnuts (16 €), the fillet of sea bass in porcini crust, saffron potato cream (20 €). Homemade desserts such as creamy rose, white chocolate and black cherry and a delicious cheesecake with raspberry sauce and peanut biscuit (7 €). The cellar guarantees a good choice of local wines, also served by the glass.
