Pranzo - Circolo del Vecchio Gusto #2

It's the first weekend of the Truffle Fair and Alba is alive with tourists - we've decided to return to our new found lunch spot - Circolo del Vecchio Gusto. There's a fixed price 4 course "fiera" menu available, naturally, with white truffle option.

For antipasto:

I enjoy the carne cruda

while Paalo opts for the flan with fonduta (in hindsight a bit of white truffle on this would have been heaven).

For primi:

We both select the freshly made ravioli with a tomato, mozzarella and basil sauce. A fantastic bowl of pasta, as good as your mamma would make.

For secondo:

Once again, we both chose the same thing,  the arrosto with hazelnut sauce - this time it's roast turkey.

For dolce:

It's panna cotta for me

and crostata for Paalo.

We just love this place - the food is excellent and authentic, a real family concern.
