Da Francesco is a one Michelin star restaurant located in the wonderful mansion of the marquises Fracassi Ratti Mentone at 103, Vittorio Emanuele Street in Cherasco, province of Cuneo. The cultural importance of the place is enhanced by a magnificent room with frescoes created by the painter Operti in 1772. The visual richness meets the pleasantness of a starry menu set between the personal search for a route in haute cuisine and the awareness of being able to draw on the historical culinary heritage of both the Roero and Langhe. Fish specialties and creativity in the kitchen separate the place from the typical cuisine of the region, and the redesign of the dishes, following the attentive guidelines of a Michelin-approved restaurant, is able to add that touch of finesse to traditional Piedmontese recipes, which is never lacking on paper.
The starry menu proposed by chef Francesco Oberto embodies a journey that initially led him to open a trattoria, and then to lay the foundations of the Da Francesco Restaurant with its idea of haute cuisine. Their traditional, yet uniquely tasty dishes, with their strong impact on sight and smell, are the product of a careful selection of the best raw materials delivered by the most renowned suppliers in the area, handled by a Michelin Star Chef. The cuisine of Da Francesco’s one Michelin star restaurant is therefore content with satisfying both those who accept the modern blend of traditional dishes and guests looking for a totally new emotion.
