If you're wanting somewhere a bit more modern and quirky than your typical Italian restaurant this may be ideal for you. I loved the design of this restaurant. We took one of the upper tables, where intimate tables for two and are hidden in tucked away glass alcoves suspended over the floors below. The food however is classic Italian piedmont... More

This place is a hidden gem! A tour company made us a reservation and I cancelled it the day before thinking we wouldn't have time to make our reservation. Thankfully I called and was able to get us in! This is a foodie's paradise! The food was excellent, but the wine list is spectacular! The staff was excellent in directing... More

Free savoury snacks on the bar in the Turin style when it opens at 6:30pm (or thereabouts) with a great selection of wines, with around 10 by glass. Also houses a restaurant. Stay if... More

A mix of caves and suspended glass walkways. We had the lamb and sultanas and gnocchi and ragout and a spinach soufflés. The waiter... More

Very reasonably priced food, excellent wine list and ambience, to dine in a building over 1000 years old. Super range of appetizers in the wine bar. Good staff / service. Architecture within is awesome.
