Hotel Castello di Sinio. Denise Pardini runs the Castello di Sinio, a small, intimate hotel that feels a bit remote but is actually very convenient to pretty much anywhere in the Barolo production zone. Over the years, I have stayed pretty much everywhere in Piedmont, from small boutique hotels to much fancier, luxury resorts. In all of that time, I have never met a more charming and outgoing hotelier than Ms.
The 5-minute crash course on Piedmont and its wines I saw her give to guests who arrived just before me was truly masterful and full of genuine passion. Visitors from the US will feel especially at home. The small restaurant is mostly set up for hotel patrons, so calling in advance is essential. Guests will find a menu is quite broad and that offers a number of choices that are a nice break from the classics. The wine list is a bit eccentric, but a number of hard to find, tiny production Barolos that will absolutely delight Vinous readers are lurking within its pages.
Prices are exceedingly fair. Last Visit: November No trip to Piedmont is complete without a meal or two at Centro Storico. Centro Storico is distinguished by a wine list that will shock even the most seasoned of travelers for its depth, especially considering the otherwise no frills setting. Champagne is a strong suit, and is often my drink of choice here. Growers and grande marques are represented with equal breadth. Paccheri with tomato sauce and eggplant Parmesan are a nice break from the Piedmontese classics.
I also like the insalata russa pictured above , the salumi and the carne cruda. La Ciau del Tornavento. La Ciau del Tornavento remains the grandest restaurant in Piedmont, with a striking dining room that offers spectacular views during the summer and plenty of warmth in the cooler months. The cellar has always been jaw dropping, but the food now is better than ever.
Several recent meals have all been superb. I prefer to stick with the classics, but La Ciau is one of the few restaurants in Piedmont where diners will find just as much pleasure in some of the more adventurous, creative choices that adorn the menu. The squid cappuccino I had recently was utterly sublime. Few people have done more to support local wineries than Garola.
The extensive cellar at La Ciau will leave visitors drooling. An extension to the cellar, which includes space to host visitors, was recently completed. Signature dishes include the fried hazelnut-crusted shrimp, carne cruda, tagliolini, Agnolotti del Plin, Plin di Seirass and anything with white truffles. My favorite main courses are the whole roasted meats. Lastly, I suggest avoiding La Ciau during weekends in truffle season, when the rush of hungry diners stretches the staff to the maximum.
Il GrecAle is a breath of fresh air. The wine list naturally leans heavily on whites, but there are plenty of red wines to choose from as well. Sadly, I have nopt been to Il GrecAle in a few years, but I have very fond memories of the Sicilian tuna tartare, burrata ravioli and ferrazuoli with octopus. The food could be a bit more refined for example the olive oil was a bit much on the ferrazuoli , but everything we tasted was delicious. Timeless, elegant and classic.
That is what comes to mind when I think of Guido da Costigliole. Andrea Alciati and his partner Monica Magnini run Guido with palpable enthusiasm and passion. The Alciati family has been at the forefront of Piedmontese cuisine for several decades.
Even back then Da Guido was one of the most famous restaurants in Piedmont. Andrea settled in at the Relais, not too far from the original Da Guido, while brothers Ugo and Piero went on to open their version of Guido first at Pollenzo and now in the Fontanafredda complex in Serralunga. Diners will find a menu built on lighter, modern-day interpretations of the classics, along with a few more inventive creations.
The extensive wine list offers myriad choices of both local and international wines. Readers can bring their own wines for a modest corkage fee, which is rare in Piedmont.
Even better, Guido will build tasting menus for diners who would like to supply their own truffles. Vitello tonnato, agnolotti, stuffed peppers and hazelnut-fed veal are all special. Most recent visit: June Several recent dinners at Ristorante Guido have all been phenomenal. Andrea went on to open Guido in the Relais San Maurizio, while Piero and Ugo moved their new home at the University in Pollenzo, where their food was good, but too often inconsistent. A few years ago, Piero and Ugo Alciati decided to start fresh at Fontanafredda. Since then, they have been on a roll.
Today, Guido Ristorante competes for the top spot in Piedmont, no easy feat, to say the least. The striking rooms at Villa Reale in the Fontanafredda complex create a feeling of timeless elegance. For the total experience of food, ambience and service at the high end, Guido Ristorante is as good as it gets.
The kitchen is open from late morning straight through dinner. The massive landing on France's coast had been meticulously planned for three years, and the Allies anticipated a quick and decisive defeat of the German forces. Many of the planners were surprised, however, by the length of time it ultimately took to defeat the Germans.
While much has been written about D-day, very little has been written about the crucial period from August to September, immediately after the invasion. This intriguing study, translated from German, not only examines a significant and often overlooked phase of the war, but also offers a valuable account of the conflict from the perspective of the German forces. While the D-day invasion has been throughly researched and examined, the crucial period following the invasion, from August to September, has been largely ignored.

Based on a thesis written in the late s and submitted in JonSowden Aug 8, To be honest, when I found that the author had been something of a protege of Andreas Hillgruber notorious for his attempts to bring respectability to the German war effort in WWII , I almost set this book aside.
