Where to eat

Alessandro Mecca al Castello di Grinzane Cavour

Chef Alessandro Mecca runs the restaurant located in the prestigious Castle of Grinzane Cavour, where guests can enjoy a food and wine experience based on harmony, substance and enjoyment.

The majestic Castle of Grinzane Cavour, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and symbol of the area, dominates the landscape of the Langhe in all of its beauty and, within its walls, lies the restaurant Alessandro Mecca al Castello di Grinzane Cavour. The mission of Chef Alessandro Mecca, shared with enthusiasm and passion by the entire team, is to offer substantial, immediate and uncomplicated cuisine, to bring back authentic and original flavours that stimulate sensations, rituals and memories, abandoning the superfluous and choosing just a few ingredients that harmonise perfectly with each other.

Guests can choose individual dishes from the menu or allow themselves to be guided by two menu proposals: “Tra le mura”, featuring dishes that evoke and tell the tradition of the Langhe, and “Punti di vista”, a food and wine itinerary with a contemporary take on food, guided and recommended by the Chef. The raw materials are carefully selected to bring the fragrance and freshness of seasonal produce to the table.

Working alongside the kitchen staff are Gianluca and Simone, maître and sommelier respectively, who take guests by the hand, conveying the joy and pleasure of dining with their professionalism and constant commitment. The food is paired with carefully chosen wines, starting with those of the Enoteca Regionale Piemontese Cavour, which, like the Museo delle Langhe, is located in the castle. The experience is completed by the café overlooking the vineyards that surround the castle, where you can enjoy espresso-based specialities accompanied by homemade cakes and pastries. On fine days, what could be better than relaxing in the castle courtyard, sipping a glass of good wine.

Grinzane Castle, with its Sala delle Maschere (Hall of Masks) and charming grounds, the perfect setting for fairytale weddings and venue for high-profile events, including the International Alba White Truffle Auction, strikes the perfect match with Alessandro Mecca's restaurant.

Tasting menu from € 70,00 wines and truffles excluded
