went there with my nuclear family. The kids loved the antipasti platter with salumi e formaggio, served with a jam of apple and nuts. Ecxellent mixed grill for main course. Reccomend for all families.

Family run business. Home style cooking. 100% authentic Piedmontese food. Seasonal ingredient, been there at different time of the year: great fritto misto and excellent truffles that the owner, an ex butcher picks up himself. This place is mainly busy on week ends is well worth visiting, the food is excellent!
