The beatiful history of Trattoria della Posta began in 1875 when Sabino Massolino – the current owner’s great-grandfather – opened a rest and stabling point for travellers in Monforte d’Alba, in the very heart of Langhe. Through the years the restaurant was managed uninterruptly by Massolino family, becoming one of the centers of Langhe typical cuisine. The countryside house, new seat of the restaurant, has been completely restored and furnished by the chef and owner Gianfranco Massolino, in the desire to reproduce the warmth and the charm of Piedmont’s old countryside in a new and elegant environment. During the summer, besides the 45 seats inside the restaurant, there are 30 more outside, under a veranda with a view on Langa hills. The philosophy underlying Gianfranco Massolino’s cuisine helped by his mother Elvira and his valid staff, consists in reproducing the great classical recipes of Langhe and Monferrato territories especially-recipes improved to make dishes more elegant and digestible. Recipes, handed down for generations, keep their own authentic tastes and simplicity. The care for ingredients – especially mushrooms and truffles – is outstanding. Along with Piedmont’s traditional recipes obviously proposed in according to the suitable season, Gianfranco Massolino likes to propose international cuisine’s great classics, especially fish and foie gras. Service is also characterised by a high professionality and the greatest care for everything without changing the Trattoria della Posta Restaurant’s traditional attitude – warm and informal – that has characterised it since ever.
