Beautiful Food and Wine Experience - Edit

The restaurant was fantastic, with both indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the hills and vineyards of the Alba countryside. They have a separate vegan plant-based menu, and you can get a vegan tasting menu with wine or order individual items. They make their own house wines, including Arneis and a Barbera/Nebbiolo blend, as well as amaro and grappa. They also grow their own grains (cereali antichi) for pasta, and use vegetables from their own garden. The highlights of the menu were the celeriac carpaccio, pasta with pesto made of hazelnuts and arugula, farro salad with mint, tofu cooked with laurel and cream of almonds and hazelnuts, and the chocolate salami dessert. I found the vegetable and pasta/grain dishes really the most creative and interesting, while the "meat" dishes such as the seitan steak did not stand out as much. Since we stayed at the agriturismo, we also had breakfast, and they made vegan options available for guests, including soy milk and rice milk, and a wonderful hazelnut and chocolate cake.

Pros: Beautiful outdoor scenery, Vegan tasting menu with wine, House-grown vegetables and grains

Great food and location - Edit

I eat at Casa Scaparoni every now and then and it never disappoints me. A few years ago you had to tell them in advance if you were vegan but now they have a 100% vegan menu every day that changes frequently according to the availability of products and often offers remarkable dishes. The location is very suggestive and particular and the food is mostly organic, self-produced (for example they make their own pasta with ancient grains) and always fresh (they don't even have a freezer!). The place is not cheap - 35 euros for the tasting menu- but the quality is great and portions are large. Absolutely recommended.
