I recently had the 5 course dinner here and was blown away with how delicious every single course was. The wines by the glass were about €4 and I believe the 5 course meal was €45. Nowhere in Chicago or many areas of the US can you find such an elegant prix fixe menu for that price. The eggplant dish is one I'll dream about for a while. The pork dish was also so delicious that we didn't even have time to get a picture.
The restaurant does take reservations, and I would suggest making one because they did say we wouldn't have been able to dine without it on this particular night. The restaurant is in an underground cellar which just adds even more to the charm of this place. The service was excellent and they do sell the wines that are in the cellar either to enjoy there or take home a bottle if you loved what you had. This restaurant should be at the top of places to visit if you find yourself in Canelli or nearby.

What a fabulous restaurant! Excellent service (in English if needed), calm, quiet, and family run. Well edited wine list and interesting menu. As before they offer traditional dishes that have been 'modernized' either in presentation or in preparation. If you are visiting Asti Province or most of Alessandria, add this place to your destinations.

We visited a producer in the morning and asked for a restaurant recommendation. This was at the top of their list. They were right on!

We had plans for a large dinner so we tried to keep lunch light, but it was hard because there were so many interesting options.

The dining room is below ground in a very interesting room with vaulted ceilings and exposed brick and stone. Much of the city is a UNISCO Historical Site and this is part of the designated area.

We settled on the braised pork, and the ravioli in a butter/sage sauce. Both were very good. The pork plate presentation was very nice.

Nice selection of local wines by the glass.

Good service.

Reasonable pricing.

The interior is great. Located in a cellar with vaulted ceilings.
There was only one other table occupied when I was there. The food was average, but the service was quite good. Based on the other reviews, I'm wondering if it was an off evening for them. I will give it another shot soon to see if I was unlucky.

You may be a bit surprise when you arrive as you have to walk along a corridor and than walk down the stairs and suddenly ... wow, a fantastic cellar type restaurant pops up in front of you. The food is fantastic and the price really reasonable for a 5 dishes menu.
