After walking through the Sunday outdoor flea market, we decided to have a simple lunch. From a quick read of TA reviews we decided on this ristorante. The restaurant operates from the basement with outdoor seating along the ground floor walkway. The tables were quickly...More

Situated in a very nice area, this restaurant impressed you not only by the food but also by the ethical conduit - their employees (aside chefs) are all people with special needs - very nice attitude. Food good, decent prices.

We were so happy to lunch at Tacabanda where we had dined a few years ago. The food is excellent, the dining room very attractive and the service attentive. You will be glad if you choose this restaurant.

Having read many of the reviews here we decided to give this restaurant a try and it turned out to be the worst meal of our Piedmont trip by far. We ordered the tagliolini with white truffle gelato as suggested by many reviewers - the...More

I headed here for lunch after checking out the previous reviews. As others have pointed out a number of their staff are special needs, however this seems a bit besides the point (although I'm all for supporting businesses with an ethical edge). The food was...More
