Thanks allende. After looking more closely at Noli, I realized it's not what we're really looking for, down home straight forward cooking. Conchiglia D'Oro looks perfect and it's close to where we're staying.
My family and I are driving to Liguria from France the Wednesday before Easter.
We were in Piemonte last summer and had a truly great meal at Osteria la Torre in Cuneo and our kids loved it. Our two boys 8 & 10 seem to be able to handle a long meal in a family friendly environment.
Any suggestions either on the coast or up in the hills would be appreciated.
I had already read your voluminous comments! Thanks for all the info.
The restaurant in Asti I was thinking of is:
Trattoria al Mercato, corner of Campo del Palio
Has anyone been here?
It was described as a real "down home" place.
We're leaving a day early, tried to get through to Osteria Veglio but with no answer.
Hello Chowhounds ~
As a New Yorker, I was a frequent user of the Brooklyn board for a number of years, then we moved and we're now in France. Not as romantic as it might sound from afar, but it has it's percs food wise.
We're driving with our two boys 8 & 10 to Piamonte to spend four days. We're staying beteen Torino and Alba.
We're thinking about:
Osteria la Torre
I'm looking for local restaurants, that are not necessarily "gastronomic", more local family restaurants.
We plan to go to Torino to check out the cafés, chocolates, Ice cream... we might eat too.
I'm also thinking of driving towards the coast into Liguria.
Has anyone been using, http://www.2spaghi.it/ for reviews?
Thanks for reading!
