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 […]

A delicious wedding meal prepared by Chef Luca Mozzanica: Restaurant La Veranda @ Villa Lario Resort Mandello (18. July 2021)

Now, one should usually not rate experiences of formal events but given it was the place of chef Luca Mozzanica which has a world-famous raviolo, I think we can make an exception. The whole evening started with a “burrata” which was good in terms of flavor and good in terms of combination of ingredients on […]

Delicious dishes with a breath-taking view: Restaurant Du Lac @ Hotel Du Lac (18. July 2021)

Talking about contrast – the day before I was on Bishorn (4’200m) and the next day I’m at the Lake Como in Italy. And the Restaurant Du Lac offers a good experience to get into civilization again. It starts with some bread and grissini which were delicious but I was a bit surprised that they […]

When it’s so lecker you have to return: Osteria La Cantinella (25. October 2020)

Although I had just been here two days ago, I decided to come back since the tajarin with fresh truffle (“home-made tajarin with butter and fresh white Alba truffle sliced on it”) (EUR 40.00) was just absolutely outstanding. The good thing about little place which are family-run is the fact that they recognize you when […]

Worth the travel – No. 29 in the world: Ristorante Piazza Duomo (24. October 2020)

Talking about being lucky. Just the last Saturday before Italy went into lock down of restaurants at 6pm again, I was able to spend an evening at Ristorante Piazza Duomo in Alba, No. 29 of the world according to The World’s 50 Best. And I must say that it is a  truly unique experience – […]

Perfect mix of modern and traditional dishes: Osteria La Libera (23. October 2020)

The Osteria La Libera is an upper-class Osteria and more like a typical restaurant as the interior design is modern and appealing and doesn’t have any traditional elements of a classical osteria. That doesn’t make it any more less appealing though. You have to book in advance as else you will not stand a chance […]

Lovely place for a pre-dinner drink: Bar @ Corte Gondina (23. October 2020)

The Corte Gondina in La Morra is a lovely, small boutique hotel which is located perfectly between Alba and Barolo so between Truffle and Wine. And they have a small bar which is great to eat and drink something before going for dinner. The selection of open wines is rather limited but if you are […]

Perfect for a late afternoon wine pit stop: Easy Così Wine Bar Barolo (23. October 2020)

If you are looking for a simple place where you can get a glass of wine and something to nibble on, I can definitely recommend you the ‘easy così wine bar’ – the place is tiny (about 4-5 tables) and there isn’t really much you can get but some wine, sparkling wine or beer and […]
