A traditional piemontese restaurant. We had an amazing time here. Delicious food and great wines. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The staff went out of their way to make sure we had an unforgettable experience!

Nice old-fashion place where you can taste local traditional dishes in an informal environment surrounded by jazz music. I suggest the tasting set menu (menu degustazione) (26 eur) with wine: dolcetto d'asti. Be aware that the restaurant is located at the first floor.

This was a long, copious, and delicious meal. The waiters are pleasant, there isn't much choice but what you get is very very good. Dress up and enjoy

I was a bit disappointed in the wine we selected, but otherwise we had a great experience here. It's as though you are eating in someone's apartment. The service was very friendly, they made breaded veal for my kids and both my husband and I...More

I ordered the "Menu Degustazione" which is the chef's tasting menu at EUR 25*. This included six courses, plus four different wines to accompany each course (*wine is extra). The portions were appropriately small but satisfying. This is a very good value for Torino, and...More
