The Cannon d’Oro Restaurant is located in the heart of Cocconato d’Asti, a panoramic town in the Monferrato Asti area (500m). It was founded in 1876 as a refreshment inn for passing strangers to whom it offered typical Monferrato dishes.
In the early twentieth century the Cannon d’Oro, thanks to the prestige it acquired, was also frequented by Prince Umberto of Savoy. Even today you can have lunch in the Prince’s room and in the next room, which have preserved the period furnishings and the charm of ancient Piedmont.
The restaurant is structured with halls and small rooms ranging from 15 to 100 indoor seats, and the service in the external courtyard during the summer. For over half a century, the Tortia family has been welcoming food and wine tourists and small groups of friends and co workers, with cordiality and simplicity, offering them traditional Piedmontese dishes and wines.
The owner Paolo, born in 1935 and self-taught chef, has acquired the secrets of traditional recipes from the great chefs who have succeeded in the restaurants of Cocconato as well as the passion for “cooking” , the kitchen is currently directed by his son-in-law Silvano.
