Ristorante Aldo di Castiglione is certainly one of the more peculiar restaurants we have been to, at least when you arrive. We knew the address but wondered if we were mistaken when we arrived. It looked like just any (ancient) apartment building in Asti. But yes, there is a small sign and a door-bell. We press the button and someone comes and opens the door. It is indeed a restaurant. But it feels almost like being let into someone’s home for dinner. It is run by an energetic lady who does not speak much English but who has a lot of good will to make you understand all the same.

We decided to pretty much follow the advice of the lady (which spared us from trying to figure out what everything meant) and we were not disappointed. Various charcuteries, vegetables, the Piedmontese raw meat and numerous other things for starter, followed by a selection of traditional meat courses. All hearty, tasty and very good. And copious.

The wines were not much easier. “Wine list? Come have a look! On these shelves we have wines between 20€ and 35€, and on these they are more expensive.”

Certainly an experience and a very nice and most enjoyable one, but original. Don’t expect it to be like you normal restaurant visit. Prices turned out to be at a quite decent mid-level for the food we had.
