We went there for lunch after we reached Turin, always a good start. Sparkling water, bread and wine from La Morra, Carne Cruda and two pasta dishes, then espresso , fantastico👍🏻

I came here with a friend of mine who lives in turin. The place is really small but nice and welcoming and the staff very friendly. All the courses are freshly made and done with organic ingredients. We had a starter which was delicious and my pasta amatriciana was just perfect. I really recommend it and I will come back

This is a very small restaurant with a very small staff, all of whom seemed very serious about the food. Emphasis is on local and organic. I would say they have an interesting menu and just need to work out a balance of the components. For example, one starter was the cod with prosciutto (Barcelone) which was very tasty but... More

Lucky we had booked, as if we had not been hungry, we could have sold our table at least 5 times over. People kept walking in , asking if they had tables available.Had teh tasting Menu, and the Soup to start , and the Ravioli were absolutely delicious. Main was good, Dessert indifferent [probably not made in house].

We really enjoyed the service and excellent quality of the restaurant. Four course tasting menu for 35 € and reasonable wine from the area. People waiting outside for a seat. The food was not Michelin star, but excellent and tasty. I would go again.

For the first time Gambero Rosso fails me. Highly acclaimed in the guide this meal was just bland, all the more so because of high expectations My trout was dry on some rather sad mange tout and that was admittedly followed by delicious ravioli. Secondi was flaked cod ( dry) with asparagus ( hard) It want just the choice. My... More

Small restaurant providing excellent food and service. Every dish served with a full description of the meal and the origins of the main ingredients. High quality meals at reasonable prices. We had a two course meal with wine for 59 euros. Strongly recommended.

I tried the tajarin with mushrooms, a bit too soft for my tastes, and a good cod. not... More
