Excellent Food & Perfect Service

This was not my first visit to Mare Nostrum. On this particular evening we ate as part of a Slow Food Torino event. The seventeen different dishes (small!!) and the selection of wines were absolutely delicious. Despite the large number of guests (and dishes) the food was at a standard I had... read more

Very good food. That's taking both price and quality in account. We had the menu and it was more then enough and I'm big eater. Deserts are also very good. Nice and friendly service too. Really can't say anything negative about this place.

We made reservation just to be sure but arrived a bit too early. The owner set us up in a room where the waiter, Alex, can converse in English. Owner offered us prosecco while we waited to be served. He recommended the Antipasti misti of various kind of fishes. Followed by a little spicy Maccarruni (spaghetto casalingo) and Caserecce lunghe... More

This restaurant was recommend to us by a local person. Location is very close to Piazza Vittoria and the river Po. It's in a calm street, you only notice the restaurant once you're in front of it. I though the interior design and atmosphere was very nice, casual, authentic. Staff was friendly; one manager took his time to give some... More

I must admit that I rarely visit such classy restaurants, but our friend had it recommended by his hotel. We were sceptical at first, but we changed our tune. We had a great meal and we waited for the bill with trepidation, but were glad to see that we were not taken for a ride. It is not a cheap... More

We had dinner here on a Saturday evening and had to reserve a place since it is quite popular. We loved the relaxed and sobre atmosphere. It is all about good food and company. We thought the price was not too high for the great quality that was offered. A place you have to go to when you are in... More

Mare nostrum was recommended by some Torinese colleagues, and they knew what they were suggesting. A cosy place that makes you feel at home and where the food is also excellent. Of course here is all about fish, and also the wine list is nice. Ask the owner for his recommendation you wont regret it.

Excellent dinner, a little expensive, but worth the price. All nicely cooked recipes. Fresh fish. Interesting large sets of small appetizers. Some of the pasta are excellent. Huge mix of fried "paranza" fish.

Attentive service, staff are passionate about the food they serve which is great. A bit expensive, but worth it as a treat! It is worth booking in advance as they are often full, even mid week
