This restaurant is at the beginning of Via Garibaldi, one of the main Shopping street in Turin. The place is very well decorated, the service is very thoughtful and the menu more than tempting! A lot of cheese specialities, half way between Italian and French culture (raclette!). I would say that the place is perfect for any occasion: romantic, family,... More

Excellent service and delicious food in the middle of Turin. I just couldn't cope with the full portion of wild boar stew and polenta but that was fault for having had a big starter first..

The raclette was too salty for me to enjoy. The starter portions were a bit small. It was very hot inside. And the owner is a bit brusque at first. That being said, the beef stew was simply amazing, as if your grandmother had lovingly cooked it all day long just for you. And the homemade flan for dessert was... More

We liked this place so much we can back twice in the same week. We learned a weird way to find out if a place is a neighborhood independent -- if the staff don't speak much English (our language), you're in a place that caters to locals. That's this place. It features classic and traditional Piedmontese food, with a nice... More

The food is of very high quality with nice combination of ingredients, the orders are quickly delivered. The place is small, so you have to be ready to be close to nearby tables. The Service is not the most friendly, a bit in a hurry in my opinion, but acceptable.

We had Sunday lunch here and were fortunate to get in early. The menu is in Italian and there was not much help from the staff to translate - so never mind, we took a chance on the fixed price menu and had an excellent meal. I think it's family run and there was certainly more food than we could... More

"Le Bistrot Fanfaron" cozy trattoria result of our twenty years of experience in the restaurant, serves succulent Piedmont, with local recipes and classic revisited all renovated with great passion and inventiveness; we take care of the entire production of our delicious cakes and homemade and carefully select wines Doc local and craft beers. Our cuisine, from tradition, from garden produce and local ingredients, creates new appetizing combinations respecting the classic recipes without presumptuous processing. We propose also delicious traditional dishes for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs (reservations suggested); the freshest ingredients come mainly from the Province and from the Basket of the Province of Turin. In addition we are perhaps the only racletteria Turin (given the proximity to France!), Specializing in fondue, Bagna Caoda, Pierrade, Game, casseroles, stews, Doba Cuneo, salad and plentiful and the only Fujot Fol - our invention! All this just to Fanfaron: in the center of Turin, a typical restaurant and sought after, with music selected in a tranquil, relaxed and cozy ... About us ...
