Ristorante Roma is in Viarigi, in the heart of the Monferrato hills, one of the most beautiful, fascinating areas in Piemonte. The village of Viarigi clings to the hill. The houses and the roads simply adapt to this characteristic: steps, small porticoes, steep hairpins, reinforcement walls are standard in this village built well before the automobile came into use.

The lookout tower is most certainly the symbol of the village. In the middle ages, the locals would burn hay on the top of the tower when an enemy appeared on the horizon to warn the population to take refuge within the walls and the soldier to come to arms.
