We are in the heart of Turin, in the San Salvario district behind the historic market of P.za Madama Cristina. The menu draws on the Piedmontese tradition of the ancient tavern “Piola”. So plenty of room for appetizers: tomini in green sauce, salami and butter, anchovies in green sauce, peppers with bagna cauda, veal in tuna sauce (served in a bundle), rabbit tuna, pickled vegetables, onion stuffed with amaretti sausage and parmesan. Tradition is also found among the first courses, along with homemade pasta, agnolotti and gnocchi seasoned with meat sauce, roast sauce, tomato, butter and sage or in broth. Among the second courses the classic mixed boiled meat is the master (beef silverside, shaved head, tongue, cotechino and hen) accompanied by with various sauces and served with originality, kept warm in a tureen, in addition to cheek braised in red wine, chicken roll or grilled T-bone steak with various side dishes. The desserts are the traditional ones: Tiramisù in a cap, Tarte Tatin, Hot muscat eggnog and meliga paste, Monviso with marron glacé. Extensive wine list that ranges from house wine by the glass to a wide range of labels almost entirely from Piedmont and with pleasant discoveries.
