Very nice interior and service was first rate. The food is good. Elegant eating. We ordered ala carte as opposed to the menu and two courses were almost not enough. Menu might be better.

This is an upmarket restaurant. Food is a serious business here. There are two tasting menus, one meat and one seafood. The waiter listened to us describing our tastes then offered to mix the two menus for us. We also overheard discussions with other diners where the menu was seen as the starting point for a discussion and not just... More

The mix of Sicilian and Piedmontese traditions joint with passion, creativity and professionalism at highest level. I am visiting this resturant since a long years ago and it is always a landmark in Turin cuisine panorama. Furthermore chef Santino hospitality and all staff availability and professionalism makes this restaurant one of the top in town. Can't miss it if you... More

Al Garamond was handily close to our hotel - the Grand Sitea - and having consulted the Michelin Guide, we thought we would give it a go. How pleased we were. The welcome was charming, the restaurant good looking and with quite a buzz, and the food and wine excellent. Our waiter couldn't have been more helpful and the whole... More

Very nice restaurant with nice central position. Its speciality is a fusion between the local and the sicilian food tradition. We had a mix of the raw fish selection as starter, ravioli with astice as main dish and a citrus soup with cinnamon ice cream and a tartufo with dark choco as dessert. All was very good, especially ravioli and... More

I have eaten at 3 star restaurants from El Bulli to local trattorias. The is one of the BEST restaurants I have ever had the pleasure of entering through their door. From when you walk in, through the vaulted brick ceiling, a former stable for the king, until you sit down. Simple elegance, not pretentious. Every dish we had, three... More

This is a fantastic restaurant that combines the best of Piedmontese and Sicilian cuisines. The Chef is Sicilian and his wife is the Hostess and Pastry Chef. The combination is unique, exquisite and divine! An appetizer of caponata Siciliana (turbine of eggplant, onion & olives) started our culinary adventure. The Fassone ( special Piedmontese white steer) was absolutely delicious and... More

Hotel recommended this lovely restaurant. Easily located. Unassuming facade. Cosy interior. Food was mind-blowingly excellent! We had 3 starters and 2 main courses. Curiosity about the menu got the better of us - and we were glad it did. Chef Santino's creativity and clever use of ingredients gave life to his creations. Our starters included Triglia di scoglio, Couscous e... More

We have been coming here for many, many years, probably since it opened around 2000. An old school, refined Piemontese colleague introduced us. It has evolved considerably, but has always been a wonderful experience, food and ambience. I really like the building and the tables are well laid with good space. Santino will vary the food if you have any... More
