Il Vigneto is a very fine restaurant, with a modern approach of traditional Piemontese gastronomy. Service is attentive, desserts are outstanding, pricing is reasonable considering the quality of the restaurant

Great little restaurant hidden within the Piedmont win country region. It's located at the top of a hill, with a beautiful terrace which provided the most spectacular views of multiple vineyards. So it gets a 5+ star rating for location and views, but I would give that rating for the food. Service was amazing, everyone was very polite and given we have multiple English people with us the staff does a great job accommodating them. I think when you see the place and views you expect his most amazing meal and I would say the food was very good, but not the best I've had during this trip. I had the pasta with veal sauce and the pasta seemed a little over cooked for me. A friend and a few tables around us ordered the lasagna and you'd expect this fairly heavy dish, well that wasn't the case. Most people were a little surprised to see this little piece of rolled up pasta wrapped around a scoop of meat sitting in a sauce of some kind. Honestly it didn't look very appetizing. We had the Filletto or Lamb as a second and it was good, cooked as we asked. Once the waited sets the plate in front of you he gives you the choice of putting a Quail egg on top of your meat. At first the idea didn't seem great, but it didn't really have any taste different to the meat. It was more the appearance.

Overall a very nice experience, amazing views as everyone says and you can walk around after lunch to shad some of the food you had, but the food itself was OK.

Hotel restaurant, with beautiful terrasse and view on vineyards and hills full of Nebbiolo. The food is very Piedmont-focused, with delicious local veal, unavoidable pasta with white truffles of Alba or imaginative potato gnocchi with egg-yolk inside. Large wine list, a bit in young end but still with good and well priced offering

We were taken to Il Vigneto by a friend who lives in the area last year, and we put it on our list for this year's trip. The restaurant is a bit out of the way so more for locals, and visitors staying at the property. The service is warm and attentive. Our group of 6 enjoyed the beautiful views as the sun set, and the wonderfully prepared fresh dishes. I had the Zuppe di Pesce and would highly recommend it, but everyone enjoyed their meals.

The first glimpse of this restaurant gives one impression; if the weather is fine the dining sites are just brilliant. Australians like informal eating, and to sit outside under the alcove gives 270 degree views of rows of vineyards shimmering in the heat. Just the view to drink with nebbiolo.

Rossano (front of house) and Manaolo ( chef) just run a great place ( visit 6); obliging, complex food if wanted, or rich or trad or rustic. Flexible fellows; they also have accommodation resort style.

The menu was simple and balancing; vegetable terrine, just beautiful on the plate, razor sharp flavours with the basil; pasta shaved up with white truffle; good evo was liberal (frantolio); then farmhouse cheese; two cow, one goat, one sheep (latter grape skin coated).

Wines: Barolo from Massolino (2012), Paolo Scavino (2012) Bricco Ambrigio, Damilano (2011) Brunate.

Score 15/20
