Str. per Pozzolo, 15
closing: always open
Tel: 0131860930

Situated strategically between Milan, Turin, and Genoa airports, and close to important commercial and touristic hubs, this restaurant was established in a tastefully renovated farmhouse. The location includes a big hotel with halls for conferences and events, and a restaurant, recommended as a handy location for receptions, but also for those who want to experience a tasty, traditional cuisine. This structure is surrounded by vast green areas, and it offers a wide parking space and children’s play-areas. The “Carrettino” proposes a working lunch from as little as € 12, together with a generous tasting menu from € 30. The latter allows you to try typical recipes of the Piedmontese tradition, such as filled pasta, risottos, beef and veal – including Fassona – meat, and special dishes prepared with buffalo meat (which is low-fat and easy to digest) such as ham and salami, served grilled. All the meat comes from Italian animals, bred sustainably and with special attention to their nutrition and well-being in the Fabbrica farm, located close-by and managed by the very same owner of the restaurant and hotel, together with his wife, and their staff. The meat, together with other products of the farm, can be purchased in the shop located next to the entrance of the restaurant. When seasonal, we suggest you try the delicious Tortona’s strawberry, Slow Food certified.
