“Looks can be deceiving.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We ate here based in TripAdvisor feedback, but not what we expected. Food was average service was subpar. we sat down and everything seemed rushed, when it ae to asking for more water it was like pulling teeth. the food came out quick yay felt rushed. We didn't care and took our time the way it was meant we noticed that other tables close to us here leaving before us. It was be after the hour. our dinner based But 1 and a half. the food tasted like it was made in an assembly line kite a cafeteria. Truly disappointing. truly a destination for people in a hurry who don't mind what they eat.

“You'd be crazy to miss this.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Fabulous, fabulous lunch. Recommended to us by locals and travelers alike, we enjoyed a wonderfully busy, crazy, chaotic lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Mostly Italians (a very good sign). Small selection of courses, all great quality. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Eat here - you will not regret it. Reservations a must.

“Yum!”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We really enjoyed this place for lunch. It has a nice view of the Duomo center. The menu featured typical Piedmontese dishes like angiolotti and tajarin. It has very nice enclosed outside seating where you can observe people walking around.

“Very good choice”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

Right downtown we found this great restaurant. Price is in the average while the view outside is really gorgeous. Good choice of wine and fresh meat. We will go back for sure!
