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)

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 […]

An ambrosial truffle and wine experience: Osteria La Cantinella (23. October 2020)

What you experience at the Osteria La Cantinella is ambrosial to your taste buds. The deliciousness of the dishes and the generosity and friendliness of the restaurant owners is just out of this world. As it was during truffle season, of course one wanted to have an overload of truffle. So the “veal tatar with […]

Still my favourite restaurants in Milan: Restaurant Cantina della Vetra (12. July 2020)

The Cantina della Vetra used to be my absolute favourite restaurant when I was living in Milan – and I think it still kind of is. The problem when you have something in mind which was excellent and your absolute favourite more than 10 years ago, the chances to be disappointed are huge. However, while […]

Better than expected but far from excellent: Restaurant Taverna del Borgo Antico (11. July 2020)

Somehow, Brera was the area of the weekend, so I ended up dining at the Taverna del Borgo Antico which looks quite touristic from the outside but the waiters at least don’t behave like that and try to lure you in. I went for the “bruschetta con pomodoro fresco e basilico (2 pieces)” (EUR 5.00) […]
