After having worked for many years as managers at the "Brasserie Roma" at Asti, and several years experience assisting at the "Sant’Uffizio" at Penango, "La Piuma d’Oro" at Asti and "Il Canestrello" at Cinaglio for wedding receptions and other catering functions, in 2002 chef Massimo Rivetti and maitre Antonello Bera decided to open up their own restaurant business in Portacomaro (Asti) with the name "Ristorante Bandini".
The two of them still continue to serve traditional local dishes as well as dishes with that little bit of extra zest to very demanding local customers (who are conservatives but who hate "that same old stuff over and over again"), and to the tourists visiting the area to spend their holidays in the midst of nature.
