Piazza Duomo and La Piola restaurants opened in the old town centre of the capital of the Langhe, Alba, in May 2005. 

A single location for two culinary experiences which, though very different, share an approach to research and quality. 

The central figures involved were the Ceretto family, well-known Piedmontese wine entrepreneurs and ardent promoters of the local food and wine resources, and Enrico Crippa, a talented and determined young chef from the Brianza area north of Milan, who was looking to start out on his own personal journey.
