What a lovely place! The staff were very friendly and offered to talk to us in English despite our attempts at Italian. Great for veggies and carnivores

“Reasonable choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

If you search for a traditional regional cuisine prepared very well without having to spend your full salary this is choice for you. Apart from an excellent quality of the food which was very tasty we were all amazed by its visual side - it looked perfect - a level of the dish presentation is really high here, you will be definitely positively surprised. A selection of dishes and wines it quite wide.
Even though it´s not positioned ideally it´s still close to the main zones (and metro) so for sure a restaurant to be visited. The only thing I didnt´ like here too much is the outdoor area where you don´t have enough space and if you sit near heaters it´s rather hot there.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

The menu is divided into local Piedmontese cuisine, general Italian favourites and pizza. We concentrated on the former and enjoyed well cooked traditional food. Gnocchi in a cream sauce was substantial but delicious while the agnolotti were also very good. For main courses both the bollito misto and the brasato were excellent. The restaurant was full on a Friday night with quite a lively atmosphere and a mixed crowd of locals. We enjoyed the local wine but there was also a wide selection of artisanal beers. Service was efficient and pleasantly friendly.

“Just great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

I live downtown and we are never short of some places to eat so I noticed this place a long time ago but never had the time or the occasion. So I decided to celebrate my birthday and it was the best choice in a long time. The food is from a fantasist chef and its soooo good. I relied on fish, tuna tartar and other things like that, my friends took pasta and it was delicious as well. The service is impeccable and punctual, they really treat you.The place, beware, is not cheap, but to eat well you need to toss some notes.

We just got off the Vinzaglio Metro station and decided to have dinner here since it look popular and we were hungry. We were pleasantly surprised. My risotto was excellent and the service top notch. Will come back again.
