Friends and family know I am impossible in restaurants. Having read one too many Michael Winner (RIP) reviews, I do not go to restaurants but I go to “tables” instead. On this road trip from London to Turin, we choose this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor. I am rarely influenced by reviews but the comments leapt out at me that... More

We came to this restaurant on our first night in Torino and were very afraid that no other restaurant was going to live up to this experience during the trip (thankfully we had nothing to worry about - you really do eat well in Italy!). We walked in without a reservation on a busy night, were given a lovely table,... More

Stopped in on Saturday, July 26 without a reservation and were accommodated with a smile. Owner carefully explained the specialties and we weren't disappointed, House wine was a light red, perfect for summer quaffing. I enjoyed with peppers with a local anchovy paste....if you like anchovies you will enjoy. Followed with beef stew cooked in red wine sauce....just melted in... More

We did not have a reservation when we visited (Saturday July 5) but we were lucky to be proposed one of the two high tables by the entrance. We took it, and glad we did. The food was delicious (veal steak, beef ragu, pasta, desserts) or downright fabulous (the pork shank). Service was excellent too, and so was the wine.... More

Love these type of restaurants that are run by the owner. They are small, with good food and wine, and they don't break the bank. We got in because we were there early by Italian standards and squeezed into a side table, and appreciated the owner accommodating us. It is quite popular and there is reason why - great food,...

Had a wonderful meal at L'Acino my last night in Turin. Wine selections were plentiful and delicious (can't go wrong with local Piedmontese wine!), and the owner was gracious and friendly. It is a very tiny restaurant so you absolutely must make a reservation. Onto the food. We ordered way too much - the portions were enormous but since we... More

I loved this restaurant! It is small and in the center of Torino with friendly service and amazing food. There are tables outside in the summer and I recommend eating there if the weather is permitting. I have been a couple times and have not been disappointed. I can recommend the rabbit salad, red pepper salad, pasta with sausage, ravioli... More

Everything feels right at this small neighborhood restaurant in Turin. Food is excellent and - while the locals usually do not deserve an award for friendliness - the service is very personal and charming. Of course you need to try some of the regional dishes such as the plin, the vitello tonnato or the stuffed peaches. The wine list is... More

yesterday we had dinner at l'Acino and seated in the small area outside. This is a restaurant where both locals and tourists normally go and find good food and wine. For starters we tried a lovely Castelmagno's soufflé with honey (Castelmangno is a cheese from Piemonte region) and a tasty "vitello tonnato" (veal served with a tuna and mayo sauce... More
