This restaurant is located in Neive’s historic center, a small town just a few kilometers away from Alba which is surrounded by Barbaresco vineyards in the heart of the Langhe. The dining room is spacious with tasteful decor, the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Vera and Cesare built this restaurant from the ground up defining themselves “reckless and brave”, they’ve come a long way since 1990 and they have been able to offer local food with innovative touches. They search for high quality products: fruits, vegetables, beef, lamb rabbit, goat, chicken and cheeses are all organic and local. Every day four different kinds of bread are prepared with stoneground flour from nearby mills. Vera channels her creativity through her cuisine. For € 45 you can try their tasting menu which includes smoked homemade pork fillet, pig’s foot and pomegranate salad, free range chicken tortelli on top of a cardoon cream and lamb loin with herbs and sesame leeks together with your choice of dessert. There’s also a tasting menu available for € 58 with more elaborate dishes as well as white or black truffle menus depending on the season. Wide selection of wines with the best labels from nearby hills.
