The sign already indicates the speciality of this restaurant, located in the center of Turin. The name, a pun between French and Piedmontese dialect, comes from the expression “amazed” of the Veil Joel (born from the imagination of the patronne Luisa Pandolfi and the creativity of Bob Noto) and the typical veil in tuna sauce, a cult dish that you will always find. A warm and friendly atmosphere, with two dining rooms, one of which located at the cellar level and surronded by about 300 Italian wine labels, mainly the Piedmontese reds. The two chefs Mauro Virdis and Massimiliano Brunetto will offer you dishes of the Piedmontese tradition, sometimes enhancing them in a menù that often changes. Among the appetizers: the already mentioned veal with tuna sauce, the fassone meat tartare, anchovies in green sauce and mountain butter, fritters with bacon and chestnut honey. Among the first courses we mention: the classic agnolotti del Plin, but also the humpbacks ones ( rigorously made by hand and of large sizeable), noodles made with 36 yolks and artichokes or Bra sausage, vegan ravioli in chestnut puff pastry with artichokes and Jerusalem artichokes. The classic second courses with low-temperature and long-lasting cooking. Among the desserts: the mascarpone cream with dark chocolate, semifreddi and Bavarian cream freshly made with seasonal ingredients. The opening hours are from 12.00 to 24.00 pm., from Tuesday to Saturday ( on Sundays only for lunch) with the possibility of eating everytime. The price will always be about 40 euro.
