This trattoria overlooks the Roero, and offers a breath-taking view any time of the year. We strongly recommend the dishes proposed by the Sperone family, who has been managing this restaurant for over twenty years. The chef, Andrea, skillfully cooks traditional Piedmontese meals, and most of the ingredients come from the family garden, together with meats of the best quality, such as the grey Carmagnola rabbit (Slow food certified), and game meat. Fresh, handmade pasta such as tajarin and plin ravioli, a symbol of Piedmontese cuisine, are also on the menu. As starters, we recommend the meat tartare, vitello tonnato, and tongue in green sauce. The homemade desserts, such as bonet and hazelnut pie with zabajone, are also exquisite. From June to October, you can also savor mushrooms, while from November onwards you will find different qualities of truffles on the menu, from the finest, to the black ones (found in good quantity in this area): they are offered in different versions, all delicious. The selection of DOP cheeses – a pride of Piedmont – is equally impressive, and includes Raschera, Castelmagno, Toma di Murazzano, and Robiola di Roccaverano, among others. In autumn, we strongly suggest you try the “Putage”, a meat and vegetable stew cooked on a wood-stove and served with polenta. The wine list is interesting, and offers a good selection of local wines. The service is polite and professional, and the venue comfortable. Average price, including drinks: 30 Euros.
