It is clear why this is such a highly regarded restaurant. Situated in a beautiful setting in Gavi, the restaurant takes advantage of the surrounding to good effect. Every course was outstanding and the wines of Villa Sparina we perfect matches with the food.

...the service was almost arrogant, rolling eyes and making you feel like you do not belong there. I have been in many restaurants around the world, and specifically in Italy. The menu chosen by our party should have been an easy one, since it was the local Tuscany food. It was prepared below average, it was served slowly, with a huge pause between the first and second course, making you loose all the appetite. It is by far the worse Value/Cost relation ever found in Tuscany which, by the way, is not easy to achieve in this part of Italy... Only thing to remember... the view

We ate here as part of a Backroads Hiking tour. It was fabulous! The view from the table was of the gorgeous vineyards. Food was delicious - a slow meal - but that is what you expect when in Italy. Food quality was fantastic - some unusual dishes that were very good. I really enjoyed my meal here.

We have been invited at La Gallina by friends 3 years ago and we loved it. We came back with them few days ago and we were negatively surprised by the attitude of the personnel. After being ignored for approximately half an hour we finally caught the attention of a waiter just to get an impressive eyeroll for being "disturbed" by our request of a bottle of water. The service was sloppy, annoyed and we were close to being told to get things ourself. Plates were placed on the table in a rush even if they had only few tables to serve. The crew looked more a fast food chain personnel than that of a restaurant which -by the way- is not shy to charge michelin star (which by the way it was revoked this year) rates. An effort is clearly by the chef (clearly lacking support from the rest of its crew) but it is far and away from the quality we once tried. Albeit the place remains worth visiting for its nature, we will not be back to be treated with such lack of professionalism and so much rudeness.
