We were fortunate to find this wonderful restaurant tucked away in the village. The food- the wait staff could not have been better. It was so good that we came back on the second night to enjoy it once more. Hats off to a great find.

The owner of our hotel recommended this restaurant, and I'm not sure we would have found it otherwise! We have been to Monforte before, but this was a up a side street and very hard to find. However, the food was very good and the atmosphere was very authentic. We had an amazing onion tart with gorgonzola cream sauce to... More

Had lunch here but limited ourselves to a Primo Pasti course as we did not want a big meal. I expected the two different dishes we ordered to be full of flavour but not so. The bread was dried out and had clearly been cut some time earlier. Although the restaurant was not busy we had to wait at least... More

As usual in Monforte the outside tells you nothing. Inside lots of character and lovely dining area. The food is straight forward well cooked and presented. The staff are very friendly truly interested in you having a good time. Good value all round.

This is a great casual osteria serving slightly modernized Piemontese cuisine. The service was very good.

Went there just to see how it is. Was so good that I came again two days later with some friends. First time I ate risotto which was made with local Barbera wine. Best I ever had. Tasting menu was great. Portions were not just examples, but real good sized. And of course local wines are excellent. We were really... More

Catari is a lovely restaurant right in the heart of town. The setting is romantic and the food is delicious. The risotto alla Barbera di Monforte was truly superb. A special thank you to Gianni for an amazing bowl of risotto. Francesco delivered extremely professional service and the lovely Sara went out of her way to make sure everything was... More
