La Morra is one of several wine-making commune/village that is in the zone of production of Barolo wines. Located high on a little hill where it commands a panoramic view of the area, it is in the province of Cuneo, south-west of Alba. It was about 30 minutes drive from our villa (see earlier post here).

Our out-of-date guidebook says one of the better restaurant in La Morra is the Belvedere. Our hotel manageress told us that the owner had moved the restaurant to another location just below the town.

The restaurant is now known as Bovio. One could have easily driven past the entrance as the restaurant is situated below the steep road that leads up to the town, and thus not visible to the driver.

The ristorante is situated on a hill side which offers stunning views of the Langhe area, effectively 180 degrees.
