Incredible restaurant overlooking the stunning Piemonte region. Service was friendly, humorous and efficient. Enjoyed a few pasta dishes and a perfectly cooked duck. Bread and amuse bouche was outstanding. We sat on the balcony with excellent views and the waiter offered me a blanket as it was slightly chilly. Definitely would recommend to all - menu in English, all waiters speak great English and they have a friendly resident dog to greet visitors who loves hugs.

On the top of Barbaresco hill, in the central Via Torino, leading to the mediaeval tower, you will come to the tiny entrance of Antine restaurant. Legend has it that the first floor of this ancient house was once a prison. Today you will be welcomed into
We ate at 3 michelin one stars during our Piedmont trip (La Ciau, San Marco, Marc Lanteri) and would place Antine slightly above the best of those (La Ciau). The cooking was inventive yet delicious and in addition to the dishes we ordered the amuse bouches and petit fours were unique and tasty. We had some English translation issues with the service but no big deal. We were surprised the place was pretty empty though on a Thursday night but to be fair it was late August and the whole town was empty. They are clearly going for a Michelin star and not quite sure why they don't have one yet.

First visit since 2015 and during our absence chef Odero has been working a while at the castle of Guarene. Now back and ambitious as always. Food is firmly based on Piedmont traditions but inspired by France and Guide Michelin fans. The amuse and coffee sweets are among the best around, love them! Foi gras in various versions was super, as was the lamb. It is too easy to overeat though...

Fuori Tempo: we make healthy, tasty and easily digestible pizzas, using only high quality ingredients: stone ground flour (100% Italian wheat, type "1" flour), San Marzano DOP tomatoes, mozzarella "Fiordilatte", extra vergine olive oil, selectioned Italia
With the knowledge of having visited Naples a month ago, we went to this restaurant with a sense to remain relatively "fair" and not to benchmark with the pizza temples in Naples. But what a surprise!!! It was so good and the pizza can easily compete with the best in Italy. The reason is quite simple. There where in Naples everything is controlled and needs to meet "the requirements" this place does it voluntary; dough that seems to have rested also a bit, San Marzano (Vesuvius) tomatoes, DOP mozzarella and other ingredients also from the best. The result is stunning and outside of Naples, this was the best pizza I have eaten.. There is however one big difference vs Naples pizzeria's; here the staff is friendly and seems to enjoy their work! Parfetto! Ps; don't miss the delicious desserts too..

The staff were all, as expected, ultimate professionals and our limited Italian was no issue. We sat outside on a balmy night which was lovely. From the snacks at the start to the post dessert snack trolley every mouthful was amazing. This was our favourite restaurant so far. The serves were generous and you definitely will leave satisfied.

We are so impressed with this dining experience. The staff are so so friendly, very knowledgeable about the local region and are so happy to share their knowledge of the wines in this area. A wonderful wine list if both local and other regions. The restaurant has amazing views of the surrounding vineyards and town. BUT the best feature on top of all the above, is the food. Just come and experience this for yourself, you won't be disappointed. We came in the evening and you can sit outside on their beautiful outdoor deck or inside and enjoy the views also. Their is also a beautiful cheese trolley - need i say more.

If, like me, you crave pizza - this is the closest to heaven. In the evenings Eataly serves wood-fired pizzas inside, or on the terrace out back. There is a good selection of pastas, specials of the day - and don't miss the ever-changing Antipasti platter.Once you've wined and dined, pick up your groceries on your way to the till. Eataly stocks locally sourced and in-season fruit and vegetables, as well as dairy, meats and drinks. The deli has an array of pastas, olive oils, jams and homeware too. Freshness and Seasonality seem to be what they are going for. Don't forget to have a coffee before leaving.

We had a delightful meal at Wine Story. Itâs truffle season and, having tasted them earlier in the week, at a modest little lunch spot, at a modest price, we were very keen to sample some more. This time the waiter brought a basket of deliciously stinky white truffles to choose from. Our chosen truffle was weighed, and a price per gramme quoted. Did we work it out? No. Truffle was ceremoniously grated over all our food. Delicious! When the bill came, the price for the truffle, scribbled in pencil on a piece of paper, came to 95 euros. Dearie me. At first we thought weâd been taken for a ride. But other guests at our B&B told of a 195 euro truffle, seen at a local restaurant earlier in the week. Truffles are apparently like diamonds - the bigger ones command higher prices! An experience and a half . But one that will break the bank if repeated soon. Service was excellent and the restaurant went to some trouble to accommodate dietary requirements.

We had some great meals during our long weekend in the Piedmont region but our meal at this Sardinian seafood restaurant was our favourite. Itâs an unassuming building on a quiet, dark road. Youâre greeted at the door with a friendly handshake and a smile. The space inside is comfortable and intimate with only 4 tables. After you sit down youâre immediately given a welcoming glass of champagne and a second glass filled with cubes of champagne jelly. This is followed by a very good amuse-bouche and a big plate of Sardinian flatbread. We had 4 courses and the food was simply outstanding. The raw fish first course was incredible and the second course of gnocchi filled with sea bream and covered with crab sauce was amazing. My main course was âdry fish soupâ and it was also excellent. Desserts were delicious, especially the semifreddo. The portions were very generous, and in fact we were so full by the end of the meal we couldnât finish the nice petits fours. Finally, as we were leaving they presented us with a gift-wrapped box of cookies that we enjoyed the next day. Service at this restaurant was perfect. Very friendly, professional and efficient. Everyone spoke very good English and they really made us feel welcome. The food presentation was also fantastic. I donât usually take photos of my food but this time I couldnât resist.

This restaurant was chosen based on the recommendation of the owner at the Inn in which we were staying. My husband and I couldn't have chosen a more perfect location to celebrate my birthday. The service was attentive without being pretentious and the ambience had a modern vibe to it. But the food is the real star, deliciously prepared and artistically presented. We were allowed to observe the chefs put the finishing touches on our dinner. This was done through three large round windows separating the dining room from the kitchen. The vegetable platter done three ways was a portrait on a plate and the foie gras appetizer were two of our favorites. But the real eye candy came at the end of the meal when we were served a Black Cherry dessert with a taste to match the look! Our server also helped us select a wine the paired well with our dinner as we were not familiar with many of the local wineries.
