We had a delicious meal in this restaurant on a saturday evening. The english speaking owner was very friendly and helpfull. The food was extremely tastefull.

If you want to try typical and delicious italian food - do not hesitate a second. You will be incredibly surprised and if you're french you'll get the menu translated into French by the boss.

This place was a good find, the trio of raw fish was amazing, served with olive oil, lemon and sea salt. The seafood pasta was awesome and definitely big enough to split! Entree of swordfish with olives, capers, and tomatoes was delicious. The tuna entree, I thought, was a little lack luster. It was seared well, but lacked any sort... More

We were recommended to this quaint, unassuming restaurant by a man at the car rental agency, who said that he often brought his family there for meals. When we arrived, it was clear he was not the only one. The place was packed with families of locals - always a good sign when looking for authentic, delicious local food. We... More

an honest cuisine in a humble atmosphere. charming waitresses, open kitchen (through an open shutter), typical italian interior (a bit shoddy but by experience those are the best). fresh ingredients and no nonsense cooking are the secrets of fine cuisine. the housewine was a bit pale but the taste of the dishes made up.

Love the location, in the old town. The food is just great, top quality ingredients. The owner is very friendly and speaks good English and Spanish. Very nice wines, not expensive at all. Open till late!

Excellent seafood restaurant in the center of Turin. Nice atmosphere, good service, friendly waiters that will be happy to help you choosing the best dishes. Highly recommended! Ottimo pesce nel centro storico di Torino. Atmosfera semplice, personale garbato e pronto a offrire consigli sui piatti. Da provare!

We actually fell upon this little place after a rude rejection from L'Acino two doors down. The owner is wonderful, explained every dish and the best, they had room for us! Great food, great ambience, the best olive oil in town. We remembered it a month later!

This is an absolutely fantastic seafood restaurant that I cannot recommend highly enough. The owner was highly attentive and explained all dishes in detail - recommending some excellent choices. The food is divine with an absolutely buzzing atmosphere. Make this top of your list and sample the delights of the sea!
