A Great La Morra Restaurant
The Belvedere
Piazza Castello, 5

La Morra Restaurant

The Belvedere La Morra restaurant is a great place. It is situated in the heart of the Italian wine country and is ideal if you are staying in the Barolo, La Morra or Alba area.

This restaurant has been run by the Bovio family for over forty year but the restaurant is even older than that.

It is now Gianfranco Bovio who runs the show and runs it well. The setting is impressive – located in a castle with spectacular views over the surrounding winelands. The vista extends all the way to the Alps in the far distance.

Service is always friendly and efficient and the food wonderful. Prices are not the cheapest but it is still very good value. Only the finest local ingredients are used and in season the truffles and mushrooms are the best you will find anywhere.

The wine list is comprehensive and excellent, which is to be expected considering the restaurant is located in perhaps Italy’s best wine region.

Antipasti (hors d'oeuvres) are perhaps the highlight of the meal. Antipasti in Piedmont are generally of the highest quality and this restaurant is no exception. The creamed asparagus with anchovies is great as is the stuffed pepperoni.

La Morra

For a starter my wife and I always have the tajarin. This is a local pasta variety that dates back to the fifteenth century - rich in eggs and with a rich veal sauce it is really phenomenal.

For a main course try one of the meat dishes prepared in Barbera wine.

Dessert is a sweet Piedmont treat with all the great Piedmont classics on offer. Semifreddo al Torrone and the Bonet should be top of your list to try.

You are probably looking at around seventy Euros per head for three or four courses and a good bottle of wine but it is well worth it and this La Morra restaurant is an experience not to be missed.
