Guidoristorante first opened its doors in Costigliole d'Asti in 1960, the brainchild of Guido Alciati and Lidia Vanzino.

Their idea was to create a new, modern restaurant that offered market cuisine based on tradition and seasonality. They were awarded their first Michelin star in 1973 and their second in 1976.
Piero and Ugo, the second generation of the Alciati family, first in Pollenzo and then, since 2013, in the Villa Reale of Villaggio Narrante, carry on their parents’ ideas, adapting them to the times without ever abandoning the desire to offer diners a unique experience that links them to a specific place and unique flavours.

Lidia and Guido in 1970

Seasonal menus, a minimal wine list, high quality ingredients and the promotion of local excellence have always been the principles of Guidoristorante's cuisine.

Guido's philosophy

It is often better to remove than to add ingredients when cooking: nothing is more challenging than creating a simple dish.
