The Osteria dei Catari, located in an alley of Monforte, offers recipes from the Langhe that vary according to the seasons. On the wine list appear the best labels, mostly Piedmontese. Important, from a creative point of view, the work of Gregor Durlik, Polish painter who, thanks to his artistic influences, has made the restaurant original and characteristic. The name of the tavern takes its cue from the events of the Càtari, a group of Christians who lived in the fortress of Monforte at the beginning of the 11th century. Their customs and beliefs knew of heresy and, when the Bishop of Milan was informed that in Mons Fortis an unprecedented heresy was practiced, he conquered the castle and tried to bring them back on the right path. The powerful of the city, fearful that those strange ideas would take root in the Lombard capital, they erected a large cross on one side and lit a fire on the other, forcing the Cathars the choice between embracing the cross or die in the fire. History says that they chose fire.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch.

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.
