A very motivated Chef serves excellent dishes based on traditional specialities of the Piemonte region. Good service; reasonably priced.

Nicely located in the main square with dining inside and out (we were outside). The atmosphere is casual/modern and fun. But the food is the thing. The Tajarin al Tartufo Bianco was absolutely amazing. Quality food, find service, and great wine.

A simple restaurant, in the complementary meaning of the word. A place for what you expect from Italian food and wine. Reasonable prices and nice staff. I had homemade spaghetti with the white trouffle. Simple and delicious! Try it!

The food is very much in the Piemontese style, but the blackboard menu approach means it's incredibly fresh and always changing. Great atmosphere and service. Just a lovely relaxed place to eat - I can't recommend it enough. They also have good vegetarian choices.
