Host was extremely welcoming. Room was clean. We had a private bathroom although across the hall from our room. Centrally located. Breakfast was very nice and plenty of food including fresh fruits from the area.

The bedroom and bathroom were spacious with a small terrace. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. However, the best of all was the very warm welcome by Grazia and Antonio. We were even given a lift to the bus station to catch the bus into Milan. They deserve every success and we wish them well.

We needed to spend two nights in Ivrea to meet up with a friend, so we chose Il Tuchino for its proximity to the train station and the centro. We were very impressed with Il Tuchino as a B&B and with Ivrea as a city. Grazia was so welcoming, made sure we didn't get a parking ticket, and provided two really nice breakfasts. We didn't meet Antonio until the morning we left, but he is very friendly and helpful as well. We took the larger suite and our friend the smaller. Both were comfortable, but ours was surprisingly spacious and stylishly arranged and decorated, with balconies front a back. There is a bar downstairs (different ownership) and we worried about noise at night, but in fact it was surprisingly quiet. Since there were three of us, it was nice to have the sitting room out front as well. I don't think we could have found a nicer place to stay in Ivrea. Highly recommended.

A friendly welcome, a spacious and comfortable sitting room with a warm fire; a large and stylish bedroom with a comfortable bed and a designer bathroom....... Our small group all enjoyed our one night stay here. Breakfast was a standout too. I recommend Il Tuchino for anyone visiting Ivrea. It ticked all of our boxes!

I came to do some writing and stayed nearly four weeks. What I loved about it: it's central, close to the train station, to restaurants, to the pretty "Ivrea Vecchia" (Old Ivrea) and the charming walk along the River Dora. The owners, Grazia and Antonio (and their daughter Morgana) are personable and efficient, the room and bath are spotless, the breakfasts ample and tasty. They consist mostly of yogurts and cereals and croissants and bread, with OJ and coffee or tea. Everything is fresh, and some selections are homemade (Grazia makes moist little tortes using apples from her own orchard). The owners don't live on site but are available for any emergency. The room where I stayed has an en suite bathroom; the other two rooms have their own private bathroom across the small hallway. I would recommend the other two for charm/beauty, and the en suite for practicality. All three have little balconies. Right downstairs is a small espresso bar that also serves sandwiches, etc., for lunch — but Ivrea has a lot of great restaurants for such a small city, and it's fun to explore. Potential disadvantage: it's on the second floor (for Italy, third for the U.S.), and there's no elevator. But the stairway is wide and I didn't notice any problems with it. The only hesitation I have in writing this review is that I will be coming back to Ivrea...and I'd like "my" room to be available!

We stayed at Il Tuchino, which is close to the train station & the centre of town. Ivrea is a lovely, relaxed town which we enjoyed exploring. Our room was spotless and very nicely decorated. We had a delicious breakfast served by our friendly host Grazia. I couldn't recommend Il Tuchino more highly.

Well positioned B&B, 5 minutes walk from the station and the town centre. You will have three separate rooms to yourself, the bedroom, sitting room (with a fridge) and a wonderful bathroom,with a shower over a spa. I loved the decor. Good comfortable bed, plenty of wardrobe space and drawers and a very good breakfast served in the mornings in a the dining room of the house.

Il tuchino is a little haven. It is well located a short walk from the station and near the charming street life and eateries of old part of town. The accommodation was simple homely and very clean and comfortable. The real pleasure though was the hospitality and friendliness of our host Grazia. She went out of her way to help us hire a car. Not only did she make the phone calls for us but drove us across town to the hertz depot to get our car. A great place to stay!

We stayed two nights (a week apart) in Il Tuchino B & B owned and run by Grazia and Antonio. Their property, on the top floor of a nicely renovated building, is a delightful, quiet, private and exquisitely tastefully appointed small apartment. You phone a few minutes before arrival and are met by Grazia and Antonio (who live nearby, but not at the B&B). There could not be two people who are more gracious, friendly and helpful. On our first stay we were shown in and given a cup of coffee, a quick tour, and left alone to settle in. We saw them again the next morning when they arrived to fix breakfast using a kitchen that is available to them but not to the apartment. We chatted and got to know them a bit that next morning before leaving. A week later we returned, having walked some 28 km that day (on the Via Francigena), and Grazia saw that some cold juice would be the thing. We were again v. nicely left alone to unpack, shower, etc. Grazia's breakfasts are a superb spread, elaborate and pleasing, esp. if one is used to a single cup of machine made coffee and a roll, the common Italian breakfast. On our second stay their college aged daughter helped out with breakfast and we enjoyed talking to all three. Il Tuchino is exceptionally clean, ultra modern and comfy, and its tasteful fresh decor speaks of Grazia's own touch, clearly a work of love. We cannot recommend Il Tuchino or its hosts more highly. Location: a 5 minute walk from Ivrea's train station; 5-8 minutes to the heart of the old medieval center for nice bars, restaurants, etc.
