“Great Little Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

In a sidestreet just off the Corso Vittorio Emmanuele II this is a very friendly place, run by an enthousiastic couple and their excellent staff. It's filled with a mixed crowd, we saw a large family celebrating a birthday, some local older men eating alone, some Turin hipsters, some tourists....
The food is basic delicious Piemontese fare, braised veal was excellent, mixed antipasti were good (anchovies in green sauce!), nice housewine. All in all, a great little place, local, reliable, honest, just what you want to come home to after a busy day in the city of Turin ;-)

“A Gem of a restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Excellent regional cuisine, served by friendly and efficient staff and enthusiastic owner. Atmosphere is great and the food is quite exceptional - try the roast veal - splendid! We ate here twice during a short visit, it was that good and not expensive!

“A real Osteria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Just passing by in the late evening, still a lot of people dining, and we got our table for two in five minutes. Very friendly service and excellent food from the starters to the dessert. If you want to enjoy the Italian athmosphere and tasty food, this is a must to visit. The location is perfect, just out from the touristic area, but still so close to the town centre.

“Excellent regional cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Small restaurant, excellent food, reasonably priced. Loved watching the cook at work through the window (from one table view). We returned - and again, excellent food, so we'll return when we return to Torino.

“Hidden gem near Porta Nuova”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Excellent food and one of the most friendliest staff in Torino! Small restaurant, so either get there early enough or be ready to wait. If you have to wait, they will give you complimentary wine. Try the lamb (Brassatto) and blue fish dishes! Don't be concerned that it is near the main Torino train station (Porta Nuova). The so called red light district is way south end of the train station. I didn't care for the Finanziera dish (soup made of entrails), but everything else was excellent.
