Monforte d’Alba has 2 great places. Barolo Bar right in centro is a great place for lunch, drinks and just to hang out, I believe they do dinner too! Great wine list and apps!!
The other place is up the hill past the church, Case della Saracca. this place opens at 5:30 with a full (FREE) spread on their bar. Great food! A very nice BAROLO by the glass list along with full wine list. We had dinner there the first time and it was very good, they have a full menu with the dining room spaced out going up several levels. Very modern!
Hope this helps!
