My restaurant itinerary for Alba
This is our plan so far. What do you guys think? We will reach Torino this Sat afternoon. We are going to be in Bra on Monday for the cheese festival. In the evening we will check-in with our B&B in Alba.
Monday night Dinner - Il Centro in Priocca
Tue Lunch - L'Osteria del Vignaiolo in La Morra while we enjoy the beautiful scenery.
May be after lunch we can go to regional enoteca in the castle outside Grinzane Cavour.
Tue Dinner - Ristorante La Volta Rossa in Alba
Wed lunch (If we don’t go back to Turin) - Da Renzo
Anyone know of a vineyard that we can check out on Tuesday before/after lunch? I don’t want to pay for a tour and wine tastings.
re: jen kalb
Yes, thanks Jen. I will bring us back by saying that the breakfast had crudo, cotto hams, several kinds of yogurt, fresh bread, croissants, coffee, choice of eggs and some pastries. These things were generally good - however, the coffee was bland and not very hot (cappuccinos) and the orange juice was from some weird concentrate. Corners skillfully cut. And the restaurant near Albergo Castiglione has poor reputation, so we ate at La Piola in Alba, which was excellent for a little bistro. Then we had this amazing Sunday brunch of antipasti and pumpkin soup at Ciacolon (the Chatterbox) on the way to Turin.
