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 LIBERA http://www.lalibera.com/
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:
CASCINA CORNALE outside Alba
ALLE DISPENSA DELCONVENTO, Alba
Please add your comments! Thanks!
