Ate here on a Wednesday night and it was full with people being turned away. The staff were fantastic, explaining the menu in detail to everyone including non-Italian speakers such as ourselves . Food was good, outstanding dishes were the veal cheek braised in Nebbiolo and a gazpacho with roasted peppers and prawns. It had a nice 'buzz' about it - lots if people enjoying good food, wine and company in a neighbourhood restaurant. Really liked it.

We booked this restaurant for three people following a personal recommendation for 7:30 pm. However, two additional people decided to join and the restaurant was very accommodating in allowing two more people at the table in the outside porch. The service was good and the food creative and delicious. We asked the waiter to provide wine suggestions and they selected good and relatively moderately priced wines. The service was quick and efficient - a little bit too much. After we had finished the main meal, the waiter came around and asked if we would like desert. We said that we would, but wanted to finish our wine and chat a bit before we decided what to have. A little while later, the waiter came around again and indicated that we only had the table until 9:30 pm. Frankly, I have never known this to happen in any restaurant, in particular in Italy where meals tend to be long and leisurely. While a restaurant can hope to get two sittings out of a table, to suggest that their clients have a time limit on occupying a table is unacceptable.

Scannabue is a very nice restaurant with a very nice atmosphere (it can be noisy if too crowded).
Food is very good but too expensive. There are many other restaurants in Turin that serve the same kind of food (mixing traditional food with more modern food combination) but cheaper. Some examples? Osteria Novecento or Enoteca Parlapà. Check those out!

We had a wonderful meal at Scannabue. Some of the best pasta ever -- I had the agnolotti which was superb. Service was excellent -- and they had English menus for us as well. A large selection of wine and fabulous desserts. Best meal we had in Turin.
