When the locals travel far to come to this restaurant for their special occasions you know it's going to be good. The food was amazing, creative and well worth the higher prices. In the summer make sure to sit on the balcony overlooking their vineyards. Very romantic

This time, my wife and I just had dinner at the La Gallina and not, like in before, stayed at the Villa Sparina. Food and service still the best you can get in Gavi. Specialties from the region, fresh ingredients and prepared with all details you can imagine. Wine list is fantastic with a superbe selection from Piedmont. Had the last bottle Vierte Roche 2008 - superb. Highly recommending this restaurant with beautiful views....

If dining here you must have the degustation menu to truly experience what this restaurant has to offer. The traditional 4 course meal is worth trying. You still get an extra 3 dishes included to try additional food special to the region. Drink the local wines to accompany your meal. Also ask to sit front row on the terrace to truly enjoy the view.

My husband and I had a lovely evening in this picturesque restaurant looking out on the vineyards of the Gavi production. The food was excellent and the service very good. I think this is the best restaurant in the area and well worth the drive.

Spent an amazing Sunday in this beautiful place immersed in the vineyards of Monterotondo, in the very heart of the Gavi hills!
Villa Sparina's story began in the 18th century with a farming estate built by the Marquis Franzoni of Genova. Today the resort includes the Villa Sparina Winery, l'"Ostelliere", a charming four-star superior hotel and "La Gallina", the exquisite restaurant specialising in typical dishes of the area.

We had lunch in their beautiful renowed hayloft facing the hills that in the spring are the greenest! We enjoyed, as starters, eel glazed with Gavi and beets, Crescenza's cheese, artichoke, anchovy and bread crumbs. Our main dishes were Spaghett'oro Verrigni, leags from Cervere, bisque and tartare shrimps and Carnaroli rice with quail legs, morrel mushrooms. Everything not only sounds, but IS delicious and not aggresively sophisticated. We had a bottle of their Monterotondo, a vintage made from the Gavi Cortese grapes from a small cru.

After the lunch we enjoyed the outstanding landscape and took the first spring sun comfortably sunk in their outdoor couches. The place and the surrounding nature altogether are a priceless experience. Already planning to sleep there next time.
To get to Villa Sparina take the A7 Milan/Genoa motorway and exit at Serravalle Scrivia. At the roundabout immediately after the toll take the third exit for Serravalle Scrivia.
After 50 metres, make a left U turn and follow the directions to Monterotondo (when you reach Villa Bollina, turn left) for 4 km. After the church of Monterotondo, Villa Sparina Resort is on your right.

Genoa, its seas and its airport are only 40 kms away; Milan and Portofino are at 80 kms and Turin, 100 kms.
