Went there with some colleagues, and they mentioned it's one of the better (if not best) fish restaurants in Torino. Just 100 meters away from the grand Piazza Vittorio Veneto, where you can park in the underground parking garage.

The restaurant is not big, so fortunately we had made reservations. The menu is in Italian only, but the staff could explain quite well in English. They were very kind. Started off with the "starter mix", a collection of 8 different appetizers, which they bring per 2-3 items. Really nice: great taste, good differentiation.

After that, we just went for a primo of pasta with fish: just great! We concluded the meal with a great desert, followed by a limoncello offered by the house.

In summary, a great dining experience, but a bit on the pricy side.

Actually if you loo for a save place in Turin and you like fish, you can not do anything wrong by going to Mare Nostrum.
It is suited for a romantic evening (if your partner eats fish) or a business dinner.

The place is easy to find, near the town center. The cuisine is essentially around fish, cooked with finesse and served with passion. The wine card is well prepare and relatively affordable.

It is of course not the cheapest choice in Turin, but definitevely my preferred one.

I was there some month ago and it was a great experience.
We ate a lot of fantastic starters: I can suggest to try all of them both hot and cold.
Then I ate a very fantastic fried fish: it was good and even if fried it was very light!
The dessert was a fantastic experience egg flip!
All the waiters were very kind and they can suggest you the best plates they have.
Also the wine charts were rich.

In the end it was absolutely a very good experience

A local business colleague of mine invited me to dinner at this seafood restaurant this week and what an excellent choice! Perfectly executed simple fish dishes in an ancient Torino atmosphere. The service was super friendly and the wait staff was happy to walk me through the menu in English, (No English menu to me is always a great sign - not geared up for tourists). The menu changes daily as it is based on what they have fresh. Also a great wine list and excellent wine recommendations. Don't pass this one up if you like fresh simple fare done to perfection.

Absolutely nice. we went with some friends who have been previously in this restaurant and they have recommended it. Now it's my turn to do the same. You have just to follow the indication of the personnel. Dishes are very good , very fresh and in good proportion. Explainations are given about the ingredients. Wines are goods and in accodance with dishes. Prices a little bit expensive but at a right level regarding the quality. Personnel listen and make good proposals. Just try it !!!
