“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014 via mobile

After a stunning loss if faith In Gamberro Rosso over consulo alimentari restoration was at hand in this delightful restaurant hidden in a to roman palazzo

Superb tuna with onions and spinach. Ravioli to due for all in a superb setting
Service efficient though perhaps with a tinge of Torino aloofness.

Am menu with no prices for the woman is, in my opinion a bit naff
Excellent otherwise

“Very good food in a great traditional Turin athmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

Mandatory to reserve in advance.
You enter a charming courtyard of one of most elegant mansions in Torino.
Adiacent to Circolo dei Lettori club, now become a cultural institution in the center of the city, you go thru a stair and you arrive to this hidden gem.
You can breathe here a piece of history of Torino, On the walls, you may skim thru beginning of XX century painters' self/portraits, once belonging to old "Circolo degli Artisti" formerly settled in this same building.
About food: currently is one of my favorite spot in Torino. Dishes are related to the tradition of cuisine in Piemonte, with some creation added on, in order to maintain the original recipe, but being updated with the current lighter taste. The quality is excellent: some dishes are prepared with "cherry picked" ingredients from the neighborhood.
Wide wine list: quality as expected.
Hope the management team will maintain in the mid term this quality level of food and customer service attention.

“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

We were invited to lunch with a group of friends, the host has reserved a specific table a month before and to her surprise they have changed the table location without notifying her, so after a rocky start we started to enjoy the different types of wine choosen. The food is good, service friendly and the atmosphere great but what I enjoyed the most was the building itself, surrounded with beautiful classic architecture mixed with modern peices. For anyone visiting Torino it's a must see.

“What a pleasure to go to a place where people take pride...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

in their work, in their environment, in their job.
This restaurant is everything that people on this site claimed it is: a bit hard to find (not if you read the reviews carefully), lots of atmosphere, dignified, excellent service, excellent wine, excellent food. The array of choices from the menu
