There is a lot of care in this restaurant. Beware: few tables, gets easily full. Reserve in advance. All our dishes were spot-on. This team knows very well their craft. Note: you can buy some antipasti and other food to take.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated, the owner welcoming and the food is to die for! Every single dish we ordered was simply delicious! We tried the other well known Restaurants in Alba, but personally, Osteria Del Vicoletto surpassed them all.

Hidden in small lane and not so easy to find. Actually that day we couldn't find a table in other two restaurants. When we passed by and saw it we decided to give it a try. The food was just good as it should be in good ristorante of Italy. The "cardi", as an antipasto, was the most impressive dish.... More

A small secluded (can be hard to find :) restaurant in Alba with all the traditional dishes perfectly executed and some more modern variations, all worth tasting. A complete and reasonable wine list, attentive service, and reasonable prices - what more could you ask for.

We stopped in last minute for a late lunch and luckily were accommodated. We each had a first course and shared a main dish. Everything was excellent. The gnocchi in cheese fondue with white truffles is a local, fall dish that was perfectly made and for me, is gourmet comfort food. They have a good selection of local wines. This... More

We had lunch here.....food was very yummy.....the onion had too much salt for my tastes, but otherwise everything tasted very good. Wines were very nicely served, and they also tasted very good!! What made this lunch special is that we were offered to have lunch in the wine cellar because the restaurant was fully booked. When you seem to be... More

Food was extremely good. Service, while very friendly, was disorganized, forgetful disattentive to almost neglecting. We constantly had to re-ask for water/wine we had ordered after waiting 15/20 mins. Asked 3x for the bill while being the second to last table, bill of 600€ for 6ppl was then put on the table without a Grappa offered proactively. Despite the great... More

Smal restaurant in the heart of Alba....I think I counted about 12-15 tables so it is very quaint and cosy...The food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking for a a great dining experience. Great wine list as well!!

Great find in Alba, a little bit off the beaten track and hence mainly frequented by Italians. The carne battuta with truffles was wonderful as was the white chocolate muse with passion fruit superb. Service was good, but a little bit slow. I would return to this restaurant

I do food & wine tours in Italy with La Dolce Vita wine tours and I can guarantee you this restaurant is indeed very good. Wine list is quite large, and the prices are very reasonable for both food & wine
