One of the few real “out of town” trattorias left in Turin. Opened by Bartolomeo Del Mastro called “Tromlin” in 1961 on occasion of the event “Italia ‘61 Expo”, it is located in Cavoretto on the first hill. It was the first restaurant to adopt a fixed-price menu, which still maintains with the management of Bartolomeo’s niece Antonella and her partner Tiziana, a life spent between tables and stoves in this welcoming place. About thirty seats in a nice typical restaurant whose tables are draped in red and white checkered tablecloths. Definitely not the right place for a flying visit. Morover often it turns out that someone brings a guitar and you may get involved in some improvised collective singing. You will start with vegetables crudité, a wonderful crown of salamis to serve at will, the omelettes with herbs and the terrine of fresh cheese. You can then taste polenta concia and fennel au gratin, and then move on to the classic tagliatelle with meat sauce. Among the latter there will be the classic baked rabbit, the real workhorse of the house, coupled with seasonal salad; followed by a taste of pork roast in red wine with sautéed vegetables. To conclude the meal a true staple, the original apple fritters, coming accompanied by Barbera Piemonte D.o.c., coffee and digestives, all at a fixed price of 38 euros.
