The restaurant is in the traffic-free zone of Alba, in the central Piazza Savona, the ground-floor dining room of the Cafè Umberto is modern and bright, a bistro with cosmopolitan offers. The enoclub is in the spectacular cellar with vaulted ceilings and exposed bricks, a preferred destination for gourmets. The dishes prepared with care by the chef Marco Serra are linked to tradition but with creative ideas. Thanks to twenty years of experience the restaurant offers classic local dishes depending on the seasonality of the country products with very short supply chain. Among the appetizers we mention the fondue of fontina cheese of Alpine pasture, creamy and caramelized, the quail roasted with cream and slivers of Jerusalem artichokes, or the hunchback cardoon of Nizza Monferrato, sauce with anchovies and little apples (from 14 to 18 euro). Among the first courses of fresh pasta the noodles with 30 red wines with Bra sausage ragù, or the unusual agnolotto from Asti stuffed with beetroot and goat cheese (15 euro). Among the second courses the exquisite braised cheek flavoured with Barolo (22 euro), the crispy ox tongue with lupins and endive (18 euro), and always at least one choice of fish. Always present classic dishes served with white truffles. Wide selection of traditional desserts. Excellent wine cellar with labels of great Piedmontese and international wines.
