Cervere is known internationally for growing delicious leeks; their festival takes place in November. During the festival the chef offers a menu with the leek as a protagonist which includes 5 starters, a first course, second course and dessert for 28 €, drinks not included. Leeks are not their only specialty: you can also find snails cooked with fresh tomatoes, garlic, parsley and leeks which Giovanni Arpino enjoys very much, frogs and sliced fassone cooked on soapstone. The atmosphere is nice and cozy, the service friendly and attentive, thanks to cheerful chef Massimo and his collaborators. On their a la carte menu you’ll find traditional Piedmontese dishes with appetizers such marinated eel and meat tartare, first courses which include plin agnolotti, tajarin with “Granda” ragout and Castelmagno gnocchi. Second courses include frog and snails as well as fillets and entrecôtes served on a stone. Very interesting desserts, you should definitely try the nougat semifreddo with hazelnut sauce and zabaglione with Lady’s Kisses. Their wine list offers the best local wines. Fair prices, 30 euro.
