We had a wonderful dinner at Osteria Scacciapensieri. Local recipes cooked with expertise and every course was delicious. There were 7 of us and everyone was very pleased with the choices they'd made. The service was awesome, atmosphere very friendly, welcoming and relaxed, in a lovely little side street in Canelli. Would happily recommend to anyone visiting.

Our hotel reserved a lunch for us here as a stop on the way to a wine tasting afternoon. The host knew that we were on a time frame, however was of no help with getting us out on time, very slow service. My husband had the suckling pig, which was dry and flavorless. I had a beer braised beef... More

Stopped here the first time on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. So we went back a second time during our 3 weeks in The Langhe region. Flavio was a wonderful host and very engaging, great chef as well! Try the vegetable tart/flan, so smooth, but anything is good. We will sure go back on our next visit. Do... More

Stopped by chance for lunch. Craving something other than pasta before a wine tasting. Food was excellent. Had a perfectly cooked pork loin and sensational vegetables. But my wife had the pasta and it was the best of 4 days of excellent pasta. Wish I could go back now 1

Charming environment, service, hospitality and delicious, savory and abundant multi-course meal. Ask for the Plin Della Nonna-this place has all the benefits of a family run trattoria with a high class know how for service. Vegetable flan was incredible and chocolate pear cake was fresh out of the oven. Flávio is a personaggio as we say in Italian and we... More
