This is a quite typical, old fashioned Piemontese full fare lunch. Several cold and warm appetizers, a couple of primi and a couple of secondi and contorni. Plus dessert of course. Trying to describe it would not pay justice: just go, take your time and enjoy the civilized way of eating in this part of Piemonte. all foods are home... More

Friends recommended this agritourismo place, we stayed here and had a wonderful rustic dinner. I specially loved the carpaccio and other antipastis.. The rooms had a reasonable price and were nice and clean. The staff is very friendly. I hope to come back here again.
