One of the few places in the city I would avoid. The Gnocchi was bland accompanied with appropriate poor parmigiano cheese. The dessert was ordinary as from a factory and its glazing was definitely a bottled sweetener - not uncommon in kitchens that do not...make their own desserts but still. The table, the table cloth, the plate, the pricing, everything was disappointing.More

Already from the name of the restaurant you can get that the cuisine will be typical piemontese ... and you won’t be disappointed! Food is freshly made, all local sourced ingredients to savour local dishes like battuta (raw meat), vitello tonnato, plin, tajarin and more...with nice wine list. We enjoyed and definitely go backMore

It’s been a while from the last time I’ve been in Turin. What a Rediscovery! Just walk over a little hidden corner of the city and you can sit with a very traditional chef’s table. The restaurateur, Jacopo, is a well prepared professional with positive...attitudes. We started with several traditional starters, which were superb, and local wine (the only good choice). An upper level for our mains: “Caramelle Piemontesi al Burro di Cascina e Tartufo uncinato” was simply outstanding. A little disappointed about the temperature: a little bit cold, so minus one score to the service/kitchen. We finished our dinner with some “no ordinary” desserts. Impressive presentation, but the taste was less in the mouth. Something experimental’s always reasonably underestimate. Nothing to add about the service. No cutlery has been changed between starters and mains, so that means a basic and not too much attentive (no pressure), but very polite and friendly. Good job!More

Well worth the detour - great way to experience piedmont cuisine! English is spoken, all cards are accepted but it is by no means a tourist joint. Would visit again!

The restaurant is beautifully and creatively designed! The owner and his stuff gave me a really warm welcome. The vegetarian food recommendations were really really good. I decided to have 3 courses including a nice bottle of white wine. At the end of the night...the Boja Fauss team and some locals were gathering in the restaurant and they were telling great stories about Torino. I will definitely go back there on my next business trip.More

I went for dinner with an Italian guy I met. He chose this place as our first date and I have to say it got me in the mood. The wine list was fabulous, whatever the red wine was it was suggested by the waiter...to go with our meal and really exquisite. The dishes were very authentic and reflective of the region. It's typical Piemontese from the area and a lot of locals were eating there. The dishes are high end, the staff bend over to get you what you want and the decor is sophisticated. It's not cheap but it's worth it.More

Phenomenal lunch with my family. Kids friendly. The place had been recommended to me by word of mouth. Despite the informal ambiance and very reasonable prices, Chef Roberto does traditional Piedmontese cuisine at its highest level. It's a little gem not to be missed, particularly...as the more expensive restaurants are now getting so show-offish that their menu of traditional dishes ends up more restrictive. Service is warm and attentive, without being overbearing. Leave space for dessert and don't be shy to ask for items not on the menu.More

We found this restaurant by chance, on the recommendation of our accommodation host, when we asked for somewhere to eat local Piedmontese food. We're so glad we followed his recommendation. The restaurant is a little out of the main hub of San Salvario, and we...wouldn't have found it otherwise. We were blown away by the warm greeting we received on arrival, the friendly service and delicious food. Our waiter seemed genuinely interested and excited when he heard we had travelled to Turin from Australia and did everything he could to make our meal a special one. He translated the menu for us to help us select our meals and even provided a desert 'tasting plate' especially, so we could try all of the regional sweets. We left feeling like we had been absolutely spoilt and had such an enjoyable evening there. Would love to go back to Turin so we could have another meal here!More

This restaurant is just outside the Quadrilatero of San Salvario, where the new "movida" trend gave birth to a lot of little places for (poorly) eating and drinking till late night. So, you can dine quietly and then move into it. This restaurant has two...vaulted rooms at the ground floor and one in the basement, reserved for parties. The ambiance is cosy and clean, the tables spaced enough to allow a confidential conversation, the table dressing of good taste. The cuisine is a mix of regional tastes and products, "contaminated" by an international touch: the Angus with jacked potato was gorgious, like the just-in-time arrived boletus mushrooms, immediately fried and served with home baked bread and grissini or the "vitello tonnato" with the "grand mother" sauce. Good wine of the cave, offered at the right price, also by glasses. Young people serving and, probably, cooking: warm welcome. Unfortunately, the place becomes noisy when full. Price around 30 Euros, wine and half-dish of mushrooms included. At noon, large "solo" dish at 9 Euros. During the nice season, places outside (but the road is narrow and the landscape non existent).More
