ALBA-eating and food shopping in and around the city

erica | Feb 24, 2009 04:55 AM

I will be in Alba in April and in preparation for my trip I am seeking advice on where to eat and where to shop for local food products. So please post your recommendations, with emphasis on trattorie and osterie rather than Michelin-starred restaurants (although I will not rule anything out, I want to concentrate mostly on traditional renditions of local fare)

In Alba, I have these on my tentative list; please comment:

LA PIOLA http://www.piazzaduomoalba.it/pagine/...

LA LIBERA http://www.lalibera.com/

ENOCLUB

VIGIN MUDEST

In the region:

I BOLOGNA in Rochetta Tanaro http://www.trattoriaibologna.it/chisi...

CA DEL RE at Castello di Verduno http://www.castellodiverduno.com/ita/...

LA LUNA NEL POZZO in Neive http://www.lalunanelpozzo-neive.it/ri...
(This may be too modern/creative for us on this first trip).

LA ROSA ROSSA in Cherasco

And two more in Cherasco, where the local specialty is snails:
