Osteria dell’Arco, Alba restaurant | BKWine Pick

The Osteria dell’Arco restaurant is actually on the main square in Alba, the Piazza Savona, but it is hidden at the end of a court yard. You can try a range of Piemontese specialities: the carne cruda all’Albese of course (the raw minced beef made from choice meat cuts), tajarin al burro e salvia o sugo di salciccia (thin tagliatelle-like egg pasta with sage, sausage and butter sauce), coniglio grigio di carmagnole all’Arneis (made with a local type of grey rabbit), and a panna cotta to finish – just as an example of their talents.

The atmosphere is of a simple but elegant trattoria with a lot of local customers and quick and friendly staff. Prices are moderate: around 10€ for primi piatti (pasta) and 13€ to 15€ for a main course.

(There is a sister-restaurant in Bra called Osteria Boccondivino but we have not been there.)

Osteria dell’Arco, Piazza Savona 5, 12051 Alba, ph 0173 36 39 74,

Perhaps this is a restaurant that you will want to try if you come on one of the BKWine wine tours to Piedmont! Take a look at our wine tour programs.
