Osteria Italia is located a few kilometers from Alba in a small community called San Rocco Seno d’Elvio, surrounded by the Barbaresco vineyards deep in the hills and heart of the Langhe. Marina and Renato Delpiano, owners and managers of the restaurant, offer a traditional cuisine that’s tied to local products, with some revisited dishes. The atmosphere is rustic but elegant, the decor is tasteful with beautiful paintings on the walls. Marina takes care of the dining room and is kind and welcoming; Renato’s a cheerful joker, and he prepares exquisite dishes with love. As soon as you sit down he’ll whet your appetite with his “bugie salate” served together with local salami. Then you’ll move on to the appetizers such as vitel tonné or beet pie with fondue. Among first courses we recommend the plin ravioli, the Langa tagliatelle made with 30 egg yolks or the Castelmagno gnocchi. Among meats it isn’t easy to choose between the “priest’s hat” and the or the lamb saddle with raspberry mostarda. You should also try their desserts which are all homemade such as the hazelnut torte with Moscato zabaglione or the apple cake. Wide selection of wines, mostly local. Tasting menu priced at € 35.
