Corso dello Statuto, 2

In the central area of Mondovì, on the main road, a small sign indicates the presence of the restaurant, named “crota”, which in Piedmontese indicates the cellar. The large vaults, the modern furniture with wood and stone combinations, the paintings in warm colours create a pleasantly welcoming environment. Alessandra, kind and polite, is busy in the restaurant room while her husband Daniele, a top-level chef, is focused on cooking. Together, with great passion and professionalism, they offer creative cuisine with local ingredients without hiding the Ligurian origins. The Ligurian imprint, whose most salient feature are the aromatic herbs, the unmissable pesto, focaccias, vegetables and fish, mixes with local products. Among the first courses cocoa potato gnocchi, parmesan cream and black pepper (9€), ricotta and lemon ravioli with red prawns, cherry tomatoes and marjoram (14€) or the authentic trenette with pesto with potatoes and green beans (9€). Then we find a tasty stewed veal with milk and hazelnuts, potato pie with herbs (€ 15) and rabbit morsels with olives and pine nuts (€ 14), but also seafood dishes such as fillet of sea bass in caper crust (16€) and breaded fried anchovies (12€). The meal ends with homemade desserts such as rose flavoured custard cake with a side of white chocolate or the cheesecake with raspberry sauce and peanut biscuit (€ 6). Cellar with a good choice of local wines, also served by the glass.
