We were a group of 14 people having dinner the food was amazing, we all enjoyed the taste and the presentation. Alberto the owner was extremely friendly we even played our own music and they created a cake for us as a last minute call for a birthday.
It was showering outside Alberto even got our bus inside the old town wish was impossible to get in such a historical place to save us from getting wet.
We definitely recommend this place for everything the hospitality the ambiance the food ...etc. perfecttoooo

This place is perfect to have a romantic dinner with your partner. The "Recetto di Candelo" is an incredible setting where you can really breathe the smell of middle age and the restaurant "Il Torchio 1763" is his belly bottom! The fornitures, the wall and everything create the atmosphere of an ancient world: sitting there nothing but your beloved cares... You can eat very tasty dishes and surprise everyone who has never been there!

Located in the old town of Candelo the location in it self is very special. You have to enter the old village and take one of the narrow lanes down to the Restaurant. Would have been a little difficult to find around dinnertime without daylight if we hadn’t made some research prior to going there, but yes you have to go down the dark old lanes with limited light. But that being said it is worth the effort. Going there of season we had no problem getting a table, but not sure if that would work in the summertime – better reserve.
For starters we had Fiori di Zuchinni and Gnocchini gratin tartufu blanche which was fantastic. For main we had chateaubriand, which was very tasty and prepared just right. Plenty of good wine offered, we just went for the house wine, which was fine – and priced at just 9EUR – yes you read it right. In general the prices are very attractive and we ended up paying EUR 75 for 2 people (excl tip), which for that quality is a real bargain.
The waiter was just perfect and the atmosphere of the place fantastic. Highly recommended

We were lucky to attend a wedding at Il Torchio and what an experience it was! I can't review the regular menu or service, but I can say that if it is similar to the menu we experienced at the wedding, it must also be incredible. We ate many courses over the evening we spent in this historic venue and each one was as good or better than the last! The restaurant itself was absolutely beautiful and reflective of its origins. We heard that the press inside is the largest in Europe. It was certainly impressive. Very attentive and professional serving staff that made the whole event an experience to remember!
