Osteria Murivecchi

Via Giovanni Piumati, 19
closing: sabato a pranzo, lunedì
Tel: 0172431008

The Osteria is located inside the wine cellar where the Ascheri family has been producing its wines since 1880. The atmosphere is charming, there are barrels and bricks in clear view and the restaurant is divided in small rooms with thick wooden tables and old machines such as an old slicer which still works. During the summer you can seat outside in the veranda under a vine pergola. The menu changes weekly and it’s written on a blackboard just as it was done once in small town osterias. Their cuisine is traditional with some creative touches. Among appetizers you’ll find the famous Bra sausage and the unusual curry and cheese Bavarese with “cognà” sauce which is made with grapes and Russet apples from the Langhe, among first courses you’ll find the Castelmagno gnocchi, the tajarin and risottos which are very enticing especially the one prepared with pumpkin and Bra sausage. Among the second courses you should try the red tripe stew with leeks and celery and the pork shank braised in beer. Great desserts ranging from the Pope’s salami (chocolate salami) to the classic Martini pears cooked in red wine. Wide selection of wines which are available also by the glass. Prices range from € 30 to € 40 excluding wines.
