I enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant as I stopped for the night in Alessandria, on my way between Milan and Genoa. The hotel recommended it and I'm so glad they did! A little out of the way, in a part of the town I wouldn't have discovered on my own, the décor was traditional and the service personable.... More

The restaurant itself i quite impressively decorated. I was less than impressed with the food so be careful if you are not used to boiled meat. Yes a range of meats were just over-boiled with very little taste left. There were a dozen or so accompanying sauces or jams to go wit the meat. these were quite n adventure. The... More

I had been dragged as interpreter into one of those ladies' clothes shops where my wife was busy trying to spend our child's inheritance! As we were leaving we mentioned that were eating at il Grappolo and the assistant responded "Well you will certainly eat well there." That just about sums it up. Good authentic Piedmontese cuisine. We dined there... More

I have been to this restaurant quite few times, for family dinners or a romantic one, and I'm always satisfied. The staff is always friendly and the food is always delicious! My favourite plate is the apetizer with 5 different things (called Antipasto Piemontese if I'm not wrong). I definetly recommend it.

We came in a party of 8 and had different plates all nicely dressed and tasty. It is fine Italian kitchen but not haute gastronomy. The location is very typical and nice. The team was very friendly and efficient - grazie !

Chef Beppe Sardi was a perfect host; the selection of Piedmontese antipasti was artfully disposed on the plate, and each one offered different textures and flavours from mild to powerful: starting with a freshly chopped and minimally seasoned carne cruda, cleaning the palate with a salata russa, on to a well-balanced vitello tonnato and finally fresh anchovies. The palate was... More

This has been my second time that I visited the restaurant, first being last year, and as the first time the restaurant made a good impression. Very good quality of food and very good service. I asked for their recommendations and they were perfect. It was a really good evening. I hope it's not another year until I return.

It was a long time I've heard of this place and I can say I expected more... The first dishesh was good but the quality of the meat for a good level of restaurant in piemonte was not expected.. It was normal-good but not great. The staff were really polite and nice and the place also was really nice.

Hungry for long time, portions small. Just spoiled the delicious and impeccable food served too late. Quel d'hommage.
