“Large open space, great hangout spot”

Ranked #16 of 405 things to do in Turin
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Ate here for dinner twice and went out to the bars here on a Saturday night. The bars don't contain too many people because everyone is outside smoking near the Po. Great for people watching, relaxing, and having quality but inexpensive food at Il Tabisca. Don't go here for dinner before 7:30 pm, though...dinner gets started late. Walk up Via Po for good gelatto and souvenir shopping.

The piazza is an important point where the city meets the river. Across is a lovely temple-converted-to-church. Inside the piazza, though, because of its enormous size, are roads with cars slipping past. All around the edge are cafes and restaurants, so it's a nice place to go to meet people, but not one of the more beautiful spots in Torino.

This is a very strange place. It is crisscrossed by streets and tram and bus lines (which go in the middle) but it still has a very calm atmosphere. One reason is that is is large and there is not overly much traffic but other reason is that all the streets are invisible, just porticos in the row of elegant 19th century(?) houses so that the cars must negotiate very narrow lanes in and out. The second specialty is that there is a covered promenade all around the place so that you don't see or feel the cars. One end of the square is open to the river Po, where there is a rather imposing baroque church which dominates the view. The rest of the square is just full of tables of the various restaurants which are invisible in the covered promenade. A must see in Torino!

While the Piazza Vittorio Veneto is very transient during the day with public transit coursing through it and people busy passing through from one area to another, the real hustle and bustle comes from the lovely setting it transforms into at night for the dinner and late night dining crowd. With numerous very good to excellent restaurants (food-wise, the service was a bit sketchy/slow at times as everyone was so busy, so don't be in a hurry), this piazza becomes packed with families, couples, friends, business people and more to sit and relax over good to great meals and wine. A special shout out to Il Tabisca (the risotto, wow!), Porta di Savona (the seafood plate!) and Da Michele (mmmmm, spaghetti alla vongole).

Bars, people, restaurants, tourists and locals all together.

This is the best place to hang out when looking for action and meeting people.

Try it out for your self at night. Easy public transport and taxi availability to get home too.
