Belvedere Roero Trattoria is located in Frasione San Grato on the highest hill of Monteu Roero, from which one can enjoy a splendid view over the hazelnut groves and forests below, enriched on clearer days by sights of the Alps and Mount Viso.

It is a historic century-old business, managed since 1994 by the Sperone family. Today, the owner is Andrea who, after various experiences, took over the reins of the restaurant previously managed by his grandfather Dario.

The managerial assistance from his mother Caterina and the sommelier Gabriele create a welcoming environment with authentic Piedmontese gastronomy.

Belvedere Roero is situated in a vast area surrounded by greenery and consists of two rooms: the main one, “the indoor room,” features a visible fireplace; the second, “The veranda,” is a terrace with views over the hazelnut groves and Mount Viso.
A pride of the restaurant is undoubtedly its cellar, managed and curated by the sommelier Gabriele Giraldo, offering a wide range of both local and other wines, becoming a reference point for any enthusiast.

The Kitchen

The peculiarity of the restaurant is the use of homemade ingredients, which ensures to the customer a genuine and fresh cuisine.

The cuisine is typical of Piedmont, where two different tasting menus are offered, or the possibility to choose which dishes to eat à la carte.

A must-try at Belvedere Roero are the mushrooms, highly appreciated in their fried version. They can be enjoyed with a menu entirely dedicated to them from about June until November.

During the international white truffle fair, there will be a menu entirely dedicated to it or the possibility to appreciate it on some specially prepared dishes.

The ongoing search for raw materials and the ability to transform and enhance them at their best, coupled with the wide range of typical local products, have led Belvedere Roero to be included in the “Osterie di Italia” guide by Slow Food in 2017. In 2024, the restaurant was awarded the “Chiocciola” recognition, the highest accolade by Slow Food.

Moreover, “Il Golosario,” a well-known food and wine guide by Paolo Massobrio, also awarded Belvedere Roero in 2024 for the commitment, sophistication, and authenticity demonstrated over the years.

Monteu's mushrooms

Monteu Roero is home to many species of mushrooms and boasts a historic gastronomic tradition related to this particular product.

The peculiar abundance of beech and chestnut groves and the abundance of water make the Piedmont area a particularly generous geographical area as far as the proliferation of this product is concerned.

Among the mushrooms in Monteu Roero we point out:

  • Reale, highly sought after for its edibility
  • Light Porcino
  • Red Porcino, recognizable for its singular red pigmentation
  • Summer porcino
  • Black Porcino, widespread especially at low altitudes
  • Chiodino, which grows from late autumn until winter

The Belvedere Roero trattoria seasonally uses all types of mushrooms offered by the nature of this land as the basis of its dishes.

It begins in June with the collection of Gallinacci mushrooms, the main features of which are the jagged edge of the cap, the yellowish color and the rather crunchy consistency.

This mushroom, which can be found in chestnut woods and coppice, often becomes the protagonist of pasta such as the famous tagliatelle.

From July to August it’s Porcini time!

The main characteristics of this species are the valuable organoleptic characteristics: these are usually used in the fried dish.

The truffle

Among the Piedmontese truffles, in addition to the famous white truffle of Alba, there are other highly valuable varieties: the black truffle, the scorzone, the uncinato, the moscato and the brumale. They are very tasty tubers which, in order to develop, need soils with particular characteristics, present in many areas of Piedmont. For this reason, the restaurant is able to offer the customer the best of mycological quality.
