Located in the Castello di Grinzane Cavour, Alessandro Boglione’s Ristorante al Castello is one of the prettiest dining rooms in Piedmont. The menu is steeped in the classics, with a few innovative touches.
I can’t think of too many places I would rather spend a cold, winter afternoon than Le Bernardin. This marvelous, indulgent lunch was full of surprises.
