nice place to have dinner at. it's defintevely a hidden place in the very center of Turin, you have to ring a bell on a front door, enter a courtyard, and find the restaurant but once you're in you'll have a very good choice of plates from Piemonte region. worth a visit

the best Vitello tonnato ... an amazing menu in a very nice setting! Stefano can really fulfill your wishes. The restaurant is located in a very nice old building in the center and its ambience is quite unique. Don't miss the chance to try ... everything!

We went to this charning restaurant with friends from Turin, and we had the tasting menu. This was truly wonderful, a sequence of small dishes in the fantastic piedmontese tradition. We drank an excellent Nebiolo for a very honestly priced wine list. The service was attentive, and the palace where the resaturant is located a pleasure to visit. Very highly... More

We had the tasting menu which was substantial and excellent with superb flourishes. It was remarkable value. It is not easy to find but well worth it.

What a truly memorable meal. The entrance stairs, the literary paintings around the walls and the very impressive service made this a meal to remember. If you can seek out the advice of Yuakari on interpreting the wine list. She has an astonishing knowledge of Italian wines. Her advice to try the Bel Colle pelaverga was just right for our... More

The building was impressive, and the room we were in was also very nice. Overall this was a great location to experience some very fine... More

Firstly, be aware that this restaurant is inside a gallery / museum and that at night there is simply a set of large wooden doors on the street with security guards. You need to ask them for entry. Once inside, the restaurant is traditional in feel and serves excellent Italian food in a fine dining setting. The wine list is... More
