Al Sorriso.

Restaurant and hotel in a village. Italy,Soriso

Unique in the world: Potato with eggs and served with white truffles.

Gobbi Wladimiro, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

At the foot of the Alps, close to Lake Orta – one of the most romantic places in the Padan Plain – Chef Luisa Marelli has created a stellar reputation for her celebrated cuisine. This self-taught former humanities student has forged her culinary style by scouring cookery books and experimenting, with the help of her husband, Angelo Valazza. She describes it as “a combination of Piedmont, Mediterranean and international influences, brought together and inspired by the mountains” where she loves to walk. Ingredients like the white Alba truffles and the porcini mushrooms come from there: potato with eggs and served with white truffles is a delight not to be missed.
