“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Dining out is problematic with gluten sensitivity. Not only was the staff conversant they also have an annotated menu that details the preparation of each offering. The owner, Alessandra, offered to substitute gluten free pastas for the regular items, "No problem". That being said, the food and service were superior. The menu is characterized by deep and creative offerings in each category and shared plates were prepared with no fuss. Carafes of house wine were available for very reasonable prices. The bottle list is extensive and equals offerings in much larger establishments. Happy, you bet. Gonna go back? Yep, tonight. We made reservations as we left!

“open throughout. tasty and wide selection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Finding a place to eat at 6 pm was a bonus. The couscous with chiken (and beef) was very tasty and the mixed salad was fine. A good place to dine for Americans who can't wait for 730 or 8 pm

“Inventive Approach to Piemontese Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

We are fond of Torino and especially the urban arcade culture. We had a delightful meal at Kipling in a pleasant outdoor seating under the arcade with a view of the piazza. The style of cooking is true to regional traditions but with a nouvo twist that is balanced, interesting, and not excessive. The incorporation of some international ingredients and preparations into the menu is quite successful. Guacamole, tzaziky, mussaka are there along with proven standards such as: coniglio in porchetta; branzino with tomato, olives and capers; and risotto with saffron, asparagus and prawns. The approach was interesting and surprising without being discordant. We were sorry to have only one meal to explore the kitchen's creations and are eager to return to try more of the items on the menu.

We had the cut steak & sea bass with grilled vegetables which were excellent. Davide speaks very good english and looked after us well. Very nice desserts and limoncello to finish.
