The place is right in the Monforte city center, sublime. If you want to try the typical, definitive, Langhe food and wine go there! People are very kind and honest in suggesting the best wine and food combos. One suggestons: try the cheese mix!

We return here time and time again because the excellent food is home cooked by this lovely friendly family and they make you so very welcome every time. Can't wait to return.

As usual in Monforte the outside tells you nothing. Inside lots of character and lovely dining area. The food is straight forward well cooked and presented. The staff are very friendly truly interested in you having a good time. Good value all round.
