Like eating is a wine seller underground. Local wines and excellent appetizers. The cheese tart and cod salad are especially good. The duck with orange glaze is excellent.

Nice menu and good service for an elegant Caffè in one of the main squares of Alba. Good selection of food and wine - a little overpriced but well worth it.

A great break from the traditional Italian meals served in many other restaurants close by. Food was of a very high and educated standard and service attentive and welcoming. English is well spoken. Excellent wine list. Good pavement atmosphere for 'people watching' - we would...More
