Locanda del Sant’Uffizio is located within the luxury Relais Sant’Uffizio in Cioccaro di Penango (near Asti). It was a monastery on the XVI Century, now it has been transformed in a charme hotel with 55 suites, swimming pool and spa. Locanda del Sant’Uffizio is the last business challenge of Enrico Bartolini.
The Monferrato, with its soft hills, village and vineyard, is a place rich in history, art, traditions and gastronomic culture. From the castle of the North to the wine cellar of the South, the Monferrato is birthplace of great wines and extraordinary ingredients. All this conquered Enrico Bartolini thats why he chose it as location for a new project.
The menu pays homage to the territory and his cuisine.
The interior design of the restaurant is by Baxter: contemporary classics seats, lights and mirrors confer elegance, luxury and the correct atmosphere of comfort and hospitality.
The light shade of the walls is in harmony with the surrounding landscape: the beautiful Italian garden, the ancient limonaia of the monastery and the vineyards.

The wines are mostly from the Piedmontese territory, but there are also great Italian and French wines.
The restaurant offers two tasting menus: one for 55€, with plates of the traditional Piedmontese cuisine, like ravioli del plin or veal with tuna sauce (to describe Boffa’s origin), the other more “creative” for 70€, in which live together tradition and innovation, and the classic à la carte selection.
