When you just feel like doing a little ‘food dance’ @ No. 18 of the World: Ristorante Piazza Duomo (30. October 2021)

It’s approximately one year ago since I’ve been to the Piazza Duomo (back then, No. 29 of the world) and I was very much look forward to another amazing dining experience at the Piazza Duomo, now that it was No. 18 of the world. You have to pick the menu you’re having well in advance […]

When you score a table for lunch and it turns out better than expected: Restaurant Aldente (30. October 2021)

It turned out to be extremely difficult to find a place for lunch on Saturday during the truffle fair. Everything was booked out. I called 10 different restaurants and none of them had a table free. We walked into a few and asked for a table and even there, no luck. However, with the Aldente […]

Decent but relatively pricey for Italy: Restaurant Ventuno No. 1 (29. October 2021)

Decent but relatively pricey for Italy: Restaurant Ventuno No. 1 (29. October 2021)

The Ventuno No. 1 was on the Michelin list, not with a Michelin star but as a recommendation so I had high hopes which were partially satisfied. The evening started with a breaded eggplant with some curd which was nice but nothing exciting. The “bread selection” was fine in terms of breadth selection but not […]

An absolutely lovely place to enjoy a few drinks: Garden Bar @ Corte Gondina (29. October 2021)

Already last time when I was at the truffle fair in Alba, I stayed at the Corte Gondina hotel since it’s just a lovely place with super friendly staff and they make sure you have everything you want. Besides the good hotel quality you experience here, you also get a lovely garden area where you […]

Lovely for a quick Italian lunch: Restaurant Voglia di Vino (29. October 2021)

Lovely for a quick Italian lunch: Restaurant Voglia di Vino (29. October 2021)

The Voglia di Vino was more of a random find but actually a surprisingly good one, especially since it’s not that damn easy to find anything which still serves food at 3pm. Once seated, we got the menu right away and were given some butter and carrot cream as an amuse bouche which was quite […]

A true 1 Michelin star gem hidden away in Como: Restaurant Kitchen (28. October 2021)

Although I have previously stayed at the Sheraton Lake Como, I was not aware that the hotel hosts a 1 Michelin Star restaurant called ‘The Kitchen’ and I must say, it’s a pity that I haven’t tried it before since it’s actually absolutely amazing. I went for the “Contemporary Path – Tasting Menu” (EUR 95.00) […]

Delicious breakfast with a marvelous view: Restaurant Du Lac @ Hotel Du Lac (19. July 2021)

Luckily, the Restaurant Du Lac does not only serve lunch and dinner but also breakfast. Since it is still Corona, there is no breakfast buffet but you kind of get something similar – a little tower of delicacies … … but you can also ask for more cheese and cold cuts … … as well […]
