Easily one of the most delicious and delightful dining experiences I have ever had. Two in our group of four are vegetarians and we called ahead and even in the mighty meaty Piemonte region we were accommodated with one of the best vegetarian meals I have ever had. Our meat loving friends were blown away as well. The menu is fixed as is the price at $45 per including wine. The food is lovingly, expertly and delicately prepared and every memorable course leaves you longing and looking forward to the next. And you never know who will be seated next to you -- dignitaries, artists, famous chefs, celebrities -- in this fabulous hidden gem of a hilltop town.

This amazing restaurant is located at the top of a hill in the tiny village of Vignale Monferrato. There's no menu & only one waiter. Once you are seated at your table the food starts arriving. In all there were 9 delicious courses. It was a memorable experience & really good value - our bill came to around €36 per person (not including wine).

Always worth to have dinner at Universo. Delicious Piemontese cuisine, excellent service and very low bill! Make sure you go there being hungry as you won't be able to taste all the courses otherwise!

A nice local restaurant with fixed menu. It means you can not order from the written menu, there are several dishes served by them and you can re-order or refuse. The quality is really good. The price compare to the quantity you eat is low.

Went here on the last night in Monferrato, and a good job that we did.

There isn't a conventional menu as such but the idea is you sample 8-10 different dishes, all made from local and seasonal ingredients. Basically, you eat what comes! The food is amazing and there is a wonderful selection of local wines to choose from.

There was just one waiter and (possibly) the owner(?) attending to customers and you could sense the passion and true enjoyment from them.

Dining here was a joy and if I'm in Monferrato again, I will definitely come here again. One of my favourite restaurants ever.

Highly recommended.
