Title says it all. Amazing Octopus and Quinoa antipasto followed by a Gnocchi with Rabbit, and wife had the suckling pig. This was accompanied by a couple glasses of delicious vino rosso. This meal was so satisfying we almost didn't want to leave, just keep ordering and find places to store food! Federico the proprietor and sommelier was the kindest... More

Rating should be better than average but less than Very good. I took a fixed menu, and the starter, fish in puff pastry was very nice. The lasagna as next dish was the best of the menu. The main course was pork, but parts of it could not be cut with my knife. The spinach that came with it was... More

We went to this place without reservation but that was no problem as the place was not full. In fact, we were the only ones until desert. So we had the whole restaurant for ourselves and were well served. We took the 28 euro menu and a good local bottle of wine while our kids took a few plates a... More

I have been there a lots of time, actually anytime I am in Italy, since I live in UK, but my family lives in Turin. Food is delicate, seasonal ingredients, good presentation! I always take a €32 Menu, it comprises 5 small courses and a dessert! Quantities are perfect to go through starter to dessert without feeling stuck! Also, do... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. When we arrived our table was not yet ready. The World Master Games was in town and the restaurant was very busy. That was the reason we were in town as well. It was no issue at all. Frederico realized how busy they were an apologized on a couple of occasions. A... More

A group of work colleagues went for lunch, but we ended up getting a lesson in both wine and food from the Piemonte region of Italy. Over approximately three hours, we enjoyed multiple courses of pasta, meats, and seafood all paired expertly with a local wine. The owner acted as our tour guide and made the meal even more special.

Imagine my surprise when we had such a great dinner in this small italian town in a fabulous restaurant! I am not necessarily used to finding little gems in the country in BC. As we were a larger group a seperate room was set up for us to wine and dine in. The welcome was great, most of us enjoyed... More

We enjoyed a terrific tasting menu - each course was interesting and incorporated fresh, local ingredients. The highlight was our host's knowledge of wine and his sincere interest in sharing his recommendations for quality local producers. We would definitely recommend this spot!
