This is a must in Torino! Great fish, menu changed daily based on arrivals and prices definitely not high for the quality you get! Nice place for couples as well as for a group of educated friends who want to enjoy a very exquisite dinner! You can t go wrong!

This fish restaurant is a delight from the moment you enter the door and encounter knowledgeable and helpful staff in surrounds that are truly authentic. There is much attention taken to the detail but in such a way as to evoke someone's home. The food is simply wonderful. We had whole seabass filets slowlly cooked then flash roasted to create...

Lovely staff and super food (fish) served up in what appears to be someone's back room - this is not your typical restaurant! But the fact that it is usually fully booked by locals says it all - this is authentic Italian dining.

This restaurant keeps a low profile on a little street off the Via Po. The food is so good that it really doesn't need to shout about it. We noticed that most of the diners (it was very busy - so reserve) were locals. This is always an infallible pointer to excellent food. The surroundings are homely and comfortable and... More

Mare Nostrum presents as a very unassuming place - on a side street off Via Po by the river. Don't be put off by the cover of the book. Inside is an exceptionally friendly staff and a meal that is on par with some of the best sea food that we've had. The menu changes daily to reflect what is... More

Mare Nostrum is an excellent restaurant, with a warm atmosphere, great staff and unforgettable food. I've been here many times and last night it was again very satisfying. For the first time I haven't had their specialty, the selection of antipasti, but I had a very good pasta and the "fritto di paranza" was just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Good selection of wines... More

The environment is very characteristic, and you would not necessarily think to eat such good meal based on fish. Nice thing you can order half of the first course, so if you are not a big eater you have a chance to have a full main course. The food and the way it is prepared is top quality. Highly recommended.

I've been twice at Mare Nostrum, and again nothing to claim.... Excellent menu, often refreshed and renewed, Very expert and mild preparation of each dish, even thosethat could have traditionally 'strong' taste very wide cantina with good and some uncommon labels... Simply, bear in mind to book well in advance...

Our friends recommended this place, and it was a highlight of our days in Turin. Down a side street near the river; dark and cozy, with distressed wooden tables. We have passable Italian, but couldn't decipher the menu. Bit the bullet and asked if they spoke English, which is not always a popular question. The host immediately launched into a... More

If you are looking for fish, this is the place in Torino. Southern Italian fish type of kitchen served professionally and at a good price/quality ratio - although we are talking high end type of restaurant here. A refresh of the whole place would be great as it starts looking slightly old. Well done overall!
