an innate vocation

Being reserved does not mean being inhospitable, on the contrary. What allowed the Langhe to recover from a difficult past has been precisely the solidarity and innate hospitality of its people.
In the Langa, we usually say “Knock, say “friend” and the door will be opened to you.” This philosophy converts the winter mist into a warm blanket and the land into thousands of specialties to be tasted at a sumptuously laid table Today, the Langhe

offers an infinite number of amenities: castles, museums, sanctuaries and churches, parks, archaeologic sites, wellness and many outdoor routes to discover every corner of the territory on foot or by bike.
The thread is always the slow rhythm of the pleasures of the countryside: sleeping at a castle or a vineyard, lingering among the stalls of a market, taste the best Barolo vintages and make some truffle slivers fall on the tasty dishes of the traditional cuisine.


Locanda del Pilone

At Madonna di Como in Alba, a perfectly restored old Piedmontese farmhouse with unchanged historic features welcomes guests in a warm and elegant environment.

Dining rooms with old brick arched ceilings, the “Salle Napoléon”, the living room giving onto barbera and dolcetto vineyards, the breathtaking landscape of the Alps and the halls and rooms period furniture offer the welcome and charm of old noble Piedmont.

Those who stay at Locanda del Pilone for a lunch or dinner, a weekend or a holiday have the opportunity to discover Chef Federico Gallo’s cuisine, which has been awarded with a Michelin star.

His cuisine interprets the Langhe products, with menus that mix with balance and freshness the influence of the Mediterranean tradition, rich in colours, aromas and flavours, and the Piedmontese one.
Particular attention is paid to the territory products and quality raw materials, which are personally selected by the Chef and his kitchen staff. Lively and colourful dishes are proposed, always in line with the season.

The service at table is faultless; the wine list includes over 1,200 wines.
