Osteria da Gemma

Restaurants Osteria da Gemma

Osteria da Gemma welcomes guests into a space that feels like a cozy living room and offers an authentic local experience. The restaurant doesn't have a menu; instead, Chef Gemma Boeri and her team serve dishes family-style, based on their daily inspiration. This approach to dining embodies the essence of community, where friends gather and make pasta together. This is why Secchi loves Piedmont's dedication to fresh pasta, which is heavier on egg yolks than in other regions of the country. The popularity of this restaurant means that it is often busy, so making a reservation is highly recommended. But, the food is worth the wait and the drive up the mountain to get there.
