As a lover of travel, there is nothing I treasure more than a well-managed restaurant where traditional dishes are rendered with the best locally-produced ingredients. By featuring a combination of Piemonte (land) and Liguria (sea) cuisine, La Vie Del Salle creates wonderful dishes that reflect both the inland and coastal sides of Northeastern Italy. At our hotel’s suggestion, we went... More

We made a reservation using mail and did a call confirming it 1 hour later. The restaurant is located in a side street of the Via Po. In side is has lots of space and you can pick a place to your liking easily. But now the food. They have some local dishes (slow cooking) we started with a special... More

We chose this restaurant following the advice of the hotel's front desk for its Piemontese and Ligurian cuisine. We were promptly seated but the handling of the menus revealed a first quirk, we were asked: French or English menu? When we replied that the Italian menu was fine, we got one English, one French and an Italian menu ! Next... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant! Only the bartender spoke English, but a Aussie couple next to us was very helpful with the menu. This is true, classic Italian cooking. Certainly not what we get in the states. We felt like we were being served by and treated like family. The food was top quality, fresh and local.

Had dinner here as a group of 9 whilst on a conference. The staff were friendly, entertaining and really good fun. The food was very tasty and very good value. I had asparagus and shrimp for starter which was scrumptious. Would highly recommend

Very good and nice restaurant. Vitello Tonnato was amazing! We went there for our trip though Italy and we found the place very good. Best for sure is the Carne cruda and Vitello Tonnato

Slightly nervous as it was recommended and booked for us by our hotel reception but it proved to be very good. It is a sizeable room behind the bar at the front (where the patron welcomes you), basically but comfortably furnished. Dishes were local in origin and perfectly cooked to order. This means that it isn't fast food (thank goodness)... More

Ridiculously unsympathetic and unhelpful service. Waiter is a skinny, nervous guy...looks you straight in the eye and tells you "everything is good", "we cannot recommend anything, we cannot take the risk"...cold atmosphere and cheap environment. Food is not bad, but not worth the effort. After the first contact with the waiter, I would have normally stood up and left, however... More

Typical Piedmontese dishes with great quality, abundant portions and average price. If you are a foreigner who wants to try real local food with also a nice service, go here and you'll never regret. Tipici piatti piemontesi (uno dei migliori vitelli tonnati) fatti con prodotti di alta qualità in porzioni decisamente adeguate.
