We chose this restaurant for dinner because of the reviews... the best in village Gavi ? Warm welcome. Nice setting and tables not too close. We felt the menu quite restrictive with only 4 choices (yet the duck was sold out at past 9pm).In terms of taste, nothing shaking the earth. Taglierini and risotto, rather average for Piedmont region. Service... More

Very very fancy. Food is just fine. Wine delicious. But.... Way too expensive and not worth it. Go to Girasole instead and get bettrr tasting food and delicious wine for a tenth of the price.

deffenetly recommend, this was the idea of Italy for us. Small town of Gavi with the old houses, complemented by the food of the Cantine del Gavi. If you are a meat lover and you like the wine of Gavi - this is the place to be.

I went for dinner in this gem of Gavi, wine is not overpriced and Luca gave us good advice. The food is delicious and the service is really friendly and relaxed. Highly suggested!

We went for lunch and had wonderful white sparkling Gavi wine and then another equally delicious 'fermi' Gavi white wine. The insalata mista was unusual in that it contained no lettuce but was more of a crudité of thinly sliced carrots, fennel, celery, and pieces of cauliflower. The risotto was splendid. Chocolate dessert also very nice. It cost a lot... More

Very well-prepared locally-themed dishes. I ordered the tripe and loved it; the best I've ever tasted (including in Florence). Nice atmosphere and attentive staff.

Charming restaurant in the center of Gavi, where you eat excellent traditional food. Great service, lovely and attentive personal. We loved this place so much, so the next evening we where back there. Absolutely loved salumi, made by local producers. Impressive vinery!

Description
"Manteniamo una costante attenzione al territorio e alla stagionalita della ricercata materia prima che utilizziamo nei nostri piatti. Il contatto con l'agricoltore, l'allevatore, e i nostri selezionatori di fiducia, fa si che in questi anni ( fra poco il ristorante ne compira 40) la qualita della proposta sia sempre alta, scegliendo la semplicita e la naturalezza dei gusti e dei profumi, piuttosto che elaborazioni sofisticate. Nostro padre ci e costantemente a fianco, ricordandoci ogni giorno che le esperienze, le persone, le relazioni, sono alla base del nostro lavoro, e che solo grazie a quelle riusciamo ad avere nella nostra cucina prodotti di eccellenza."
