Restaurants in Piedmont

Take a seat in the design-minded café with a bookstore. In the shadow of a monumental palazzo, taste tiny roasted potatoes; focaccia with artichokes, prosciutto, mortadella, and mozzarella; and a farfalle salad tangy with capers.

One of Turin's many famous old cafés where you can have a coffee or aperitif in style. Laid out under a vast chandelier, the spread at Caffè San Carlo is as rococo as the florid 1822 interior.

Davide Palluda, the talented young chef at All’Enoteca restaurant, in the small Langhe town of Canale, not far from Alba, packs duck, rabbit, and guinea fowl into olive oil and waits three long years until they achieve the plush concentration of a confit (crazy-good!).

Order the wild-greens–and-sausage pie at Pizzeria da Cristina, an oasis of Neapolitan warmth and tomato sauce just outside the center.
