Food is presented in a very impressive fashion, service is impeccable, lots of freebies
I had a piedmontese tasting menu, which involved a lot of stuff fried in batter and sweets
Frankly taste wise it wasn't anything groundbreaking, but it was fine as an experience

Three course lunch menu is a great way to get a taste of this michelin starred cuisine while keeping it very affordable! Steak tartare was very good. Interesting flavour combination in the risotto and traditional plin ravioli were also very tasty. Finally the zabaione was outstanding, accompanied by crunchy buttery torcetti. Delicious!

I have been to La Gardenia many times through several years and I used to like it very much.

My last visit , yesterday, was a disappointment.

The choreography of small tastings has become a show without substance , and the quality of the main dishes has deteriorated dramatically ( for instance a roasted turbot with ridiculously small portions ad the skin left on it ).

The feeling is now of a company cafeteria with prepackaged dishes ready for the microwave oven.

Gone is the feeling of a high quality restaurant where the chef does special things expressly for you.

And at this quality level the price is too high.

We were traveling around "Barolo Wine" country and happened upon this restaurant. It started out as a visit to the cantina to purchase some wine. After meeting the chef we decided to have lunch. We tried the special menu which ended up being a seven course meal. A couple of those services were not on the menu, but provided as a special serving by the chef. The meal was on the pricey side - 85 Euro. expensive for a lunch setting. Of all the plates served the risotto was the best. We were served a small raw fish plate - not appetizing at all - too fishy! The sliced beef serving (tagliata de manzo) was pretty good - not a Michelin level service, but pretty good. It was a good meal. Not worth the price, so the value was not there. we purchased a few cases of Barolo wine at the cantina which were very reasonably priced. They have a herb garden on premises used for their meals - they're specialty is meals with herbs infused, accented, etc.

There were a-la-cart items on the menu we probably should have went for rather than the special menu. Probably would have had a better value experience.
