We went with friends, very attentive service but zero atmosphere. Large wine list, good menu but certain dishes were so extravagant and inventive to be borderline unpleasant when tasted. Too sophisticated and probably missing the point a little bit. Not too impressed

We rather disappointed, not necessarily for the food, but for the non-transparent, a-la-Venetian charging strategy. Two €40 menus ended up in a €186 bill, after adding 2 wine pairings (€50), 2 aperitivo (€30), coffees and water. Quite a surprise at the end of the evening - the issue not being the money, but rather the sneaky way of moving up... More

The chef may be the enfant terrible of the Turin restaurant scene, but things with enfants being terrible is that sometimes they are just children who behave terribly. Everything was cooked (when it was cooked) very well, but the combinations didnt excite. The best thing was the amuse bouche - 5 little mouthfuls that took you through a full meal... More

This was not our first time at this restaurant, and for sure will not be the last one. We were worried that after being awarded a (long deserved) Michelin star, the price had been increased, and discovered with pleasure that this is not the case. We tried the 'i classici' menu, which includes 7 dishes chosen between the most representative... More

Whenever I fantasize about leaving the kids with the nanny for a few days and taking off somewhere in the Maldives with my wife by ourselves, it doesn't take me long to wake up and realize the difficulties of such a daydream. As a consolation I usually book a vegetarian dinner with Magorabin. Meeting anyone passionate about what they do... More

I've been here a couple of months ago, after therestaurant has been awarded the Michelin star. I discovered a place elegant but familiar, an onest and truthful proposal in terms of quality, tradition and creativity. The winelist is very wide, vwith the best of Piedmont labels from Barolo and Barbaresco, and many other great italians, along with lots of french... More

I've been wined and dined at least once or twice a year since 2008 at this Turin venue, and I like it as much as I dislike the city it belongs to. Turin is the city where people will ride a bicycle on the sidewalk and ring bells at the pedestrians or will actually feel confortable parking their cars in... More

i went to Magorabin with a group of friends and colleagues on a business trip to Turin. We're all foodies, and were very curious to try out this relatively recent michelin star. From the moment you step inside, all the members of the staff go happily out of their way to welcome you and give you the feeling that you... More

Restaurant is in Corso San Maurizio - not the sexiest part of town, but still at the edge of the historic center of town. Interior decor also is not perfect, with an unbalanced mix of old and new elements. The food, however, is really good: Piedmontese tradition with a contemporary flavor, at a non-exorbitant price. As a main tried 'plin'... More

A very nice place, i took the 9-course menu, fantastic veal tongue with the shrimp and the tangerine, and a foie gras creme caramel that I will remember as long as I live ... Wine list as thick as the phone book of Queensland about 1100 different wines, Basically one of the best dinner of my life ..
