Where to eat and drink
Neuv Caval’d Brons

Piazza della Consolata, 5
This tiny café looks exactly as it did 200 years ago, and offers an unmissable experience for any Turin-visiting food-lovers.
Caffè Confetteria Baratti & Milano
Piazza Castello, 29
Located between the Galleria Subalpina and Piazza Castello, this café was opened in 1875 by Ferdinando Baratti and Edoardo Milano, and immediately distinguished itself for its quality, winning the sought-after title of Supplier to the Royal House. The ideal place for sipping a hot chocolate or stocking up on gianduia chocolates.

Ottimo Via San Francesco D’assisi
Marchetti Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, 24bis
Gelateria Popolare Via Borgo Dora
Largo Saluzzo, 25
This modern osteria is perfect for a lunch inspired by Piedmontese tradition with a touch of innovation. Try their take on vitello tonnato (veal in tuna sauce), agnolotti al plin pasta with three roast meats or Greppi pigeon. Great attention is paid to sourcing the best ingredients.
Largo 4 Marzo, 9/b
Looking out on to delightful little piazza, this small piola (small Piedmontese restaurant) is perfect for a quick meal in the covered outdoor area. A must for all Turin visitors and locals.
Birreria San Paolo
Via Airasca, 11/d
Taberna (wine bar)
Libraria Via Bogino, 5
Vineria Tre Galli
Via Sant’Agostino, 25
One of the first restaurants to open in the Quadrilatero Romano neighborhood. We love the encyclopedic list of wines and their variation on insalata russa (Russian salad) featuring quail’s eggs.
Via Cenischia, 9
Solidly traditional Piedmontese cooking. Carne cruda (veal tartare), tajarin pasta with chicken livers and roast pork shin are among the dishes we particularly recommend.
Via Monte di Pietà, 23
The wine list, entitled Eccessi e Riflessioni (“excesses and reflections”) offers over 250 natural wines. Nettle-filled plin pasta, plenty of offal (including brain ravioli) and the famous three pannacottas. Unmissable!
Le Tre Galline
Via G. Bellezia, 37
One of the city’s top restaurants, Tre Galline has been offering Turinese cuisine for around 500 years. Ingredients are always seasonal and recipes are always based on tradition.
Otto e Tre Quarti
Piazza Solferino, 8C
Classic Neapolitan-style pizza baked in a wood-fired oven and topped with the best-quality ingredients.
Via Berthollet, 17/I
Via Principi D’Acaja, 61
Piero Ling will be happy to suggest the best traditional Cantonese dishes. Dumplings and seaweed are top of our list.
Via Bellezia, 8G
A warm, welcoming atmosphere. Among the specialties, we recommend the Sibir, which uses the traditional method of cooking on stones, used in the hearths of the camps of the people living in the Altai mountains, along the border between Siberia and Mongolia.

A varied menu, authentic ingredients and careful preparation, plus a rustic, welcoming setting can all be found in this historic osteria in the center of Turin.
