In the center of a town renowned for amaretti and mushrooms, you will find a historic palace that hosts a restaurant, a cellar, and a cafeteria. The restaurant proposes excellent recipes of Ligurian-Piedmontese cuisine. Among the appetisers (from 8 to 9 €) you can try tuna and panissa veal, the typical Ligurian recipe of fried chickpea flour, peppers with Bagna Cauda and pumpkin loaf on parmesan cream. The first courses (from 12 to 14 €), are rigorously handmade with the ground flour of the local mill: cod ravioli and the typical Genoese long ravioli (not stuffed) “al tocco”, seasoned with meat sauce; zimino chickpeas with swiss chards. Between the seconds (from 11 to 13 €): the specialty of the house is the sbira tripe soup, the warm stockfish salad on mashed potatoes and the beef stew with chestnuts and polenta. For dessert you cannot miss the bonet, the chocolate pudding with amaretti, the red wine poached pears with cookies, or the Salsole cake, with the cream of amaretti di Sassello and apricot jam (all for a total amount of 5€). The wine list offers first of all the wines of the province Savona, of the Acqui area, and western Liguria, but there are also wines more distinctive than in other regions. It is definitely a pleasant stop in an amazing scenery that is worth knowing.
