Restaurant is a relaxed atmosphere serving primarily Piemontese style classics (polenta with every kind of topping, pastas and meat dishes from the region). Everything met expectations although the fish was the least favourite of our dishes-not really near the coast.

Our family had a terrific dinner here. A hot week in Turin, so we appreciated the cool aircon and the warmth of the restaurant owner. This restaurant specialises in polenta and you will enjoy the quality of the food. The wines were also a highlight.
