Matteo Morra has long-standing experience both in Italy and abroad, and after his success as personal Chef and the opening of the "Al Paese di Fiaba" restaurant in Sommariva Bosco, he decided to move over to the relais Limax Acis in Cherasco.
The Restaurant Room
We find ourselves in a relais which is decorated in a modern style while respecting the building's traditional features.
Large windows, soft lighting, elegant round tables and original apertures such as the glass holders vat create a unique environment: all to be fully admired.
The preparation of the dishes begins with goods from local producers, which Matteo meets personally and chooses only fresh and high quality raw materials.
The chef offers an express cuisine, where the dishes are finalized on the spot and the waiting-time for each order depends on the food's cooking time: pasta, bread, breadsticks and small pastries are prepared daily on site.
You'll find a close link with the territory in the tasting menu; traditional dishes that are dedicated to those who want to "taste" the Langhe. Amongst these you'll find the braised veal cheek in Barolo: a dish that is so tender and succulent you could eat it with a spoon.
We also propose creative dishes, dedicated to those who know the traditional dishes well and want to try new tastes and flavors. An example are the scallops with artichokes.
The menu's proposals try to meet all requests. This is why we always offer vegetarian dishes for antipasti, main and second course dishes and sweets.
The wine list was created by Matteo, a great lover of wine, along with the restaurant's maître Andrea.
Here too they decided to try in person the products being offered, so as to provide the best recommendations and pairings. With this in mind, even the Champagne included in the wine list was preceded by a visit to the producer's wineries.
There are also roughly 300 labels available, the majority of which are linked to the territory and focused on wines such as Nebbiolo, Barbera and Barolo. And of course we also have wines from outside the region itself and a rich selection of spirits.
