For more than two decades, ‘authentic' Alba has been quietly championing the food and wine of Piedmont, with a few gastronomic detours into other Italian regions. The City location and bright,
smartly refurbished interior seem best suited to business lunches and grown-up diners, but the rewards are ample. Red peppers with bagna-cauda sauce, ravioli filled with mixed boiled meats and
capers, veal scallopine milanese and baked chocolate pudding fly the flag for Piedmont, while Pugliese pasta with caciocavallo cheese and sausage, or swordfish with caponata, travel south for
inspiration. The fixed-price menu (£18.90/22.50 for two/three courses) is very popular with regulars, and the all-Italian wine list also impresses – Piedmont is naturally a strong suit and there
are some good grappas, too. Alternatively, nip to Alba's next-door coffee shop for a quick espresso and a toasted piadina.
