The waitstaff are wonderful and the food is delicious. Very limited menu on purpose so everything is fresh and homemade. Setting on a small piazza in Torino is perfect.

My husband and I like to take friends here when they visit Turin as it offers good, local fare at very reasonable prices. The food is always good, the only issue is the long wait sometimes (but it shows that it’s worth it!).

Very nice place, small and busy. It's better to arrive right on 19:00 when they open because 30 minutrs later, you will wait outside. Goog prices for very nice food

I love this typical Piemontese cafe and make it a must-visit when in Torino. It's very busy and you'll queue for sure. No reservations but go before it opens and leave your name inside and they'll reserve your table for when the doors open. The...More

Piola Cianci was on my radar already but with a knowing recommendation from Stefano our walking guide we ate there the same night. Being a balmy evening it was all action at the outside pavement area in the pretty piazza. As the bar next door...More

As most of the reviews stated, it’s a super busy restaurant. I was the first at table but no longer later it was fully packed with the locals. They don’t have a fancy menu, just a few choices for some really simply local food but...More

This is a really busy local restaurant in a nice square largely frequented by young people. There are limited menu choices structured I would think for fast turnover and the food is excellent. There is no booking so come early. The turnover is speedy and...More
