This place is amazing: the landscape is a dream, the view is fantastic. Since we arrived we felt very welcomed by the one of the owners who offers us an excellent Chardonnay while we wait for the dinner time. The menu was excellent from appetizer until dessert, with a fine and warm service. The Barbera D'Alba we took was a... More

Very good food, typical ingredients of the area. Very nice wines choice. Excellent service. Very nice tables (not your typical agriturismo with checkered tableclothes). The restaurant is often used, over weekends, for weddings and other big family celebrations.. better check in advance!

Typical piemontese food and great service coupled with a good wine list - specially off own cantina. Only the atmosphere could be cozier (light, noise).

This is the most beautiful restaurant I habe ever visited. Food was really good and service is friendly. Compared to the quality the prices were quite low.... More

Well cooked local dishes. We bought the Barolo wine packages witch were four different wines from the wineyard. The waiter described the wines with passion, and this package only costed 15€. We sat outside and the surroundings were fantastic.

We were staying nearby and looking for a place to eat in April 2016. The restaurant was open late so we went to la torricella. The ambience was pretty crummy in the extension of the dining room we ate in and the food was OK, but our experience with the wine was what, no pun intended, left a bad taste... More

By sharing your experiences, you're helping travelers make better choices and pIt was night at the end of October, so we could not enjoy the view. The restaurant was simple. The food was tasty.

We had an incredible meal with great service, fine wine choices at reasonable prices (we had one of their own), in this clean, modern and quiet restaurant. We can't wait to return.

It is definitely a beautiful place. The service is ok and friendly. But there is nothing unique in the meals. This does not mean that the cuisine is not good, it is just that, as in the area you can find so many great restaurants, that this one is not a place to repeat for me.
