Restaurants in Piedmont
Stop by the bunker-like bar for such improbable treats as a wooden board of meaty pancetta, beautiful roasted vegetables, and a fluffy rice, pea, and frittata salad.
Cooler in spirit than the city's traditional cafés.
Dine under the arched brick ceiling of Ristorante Sotto La Mole, housed in a former horse stable by the National Cinema Museum. Thin strands of eggy saffron tajarin are freshened with raw tomato and herbed oil. Rugged hand-shaped agnolotti bulge with roasted meat filling.
The café's eponymous drink has been served at this spot since 1763. The historic beverage has three layers: coffee on the bottom, dark chocolate above it, and sweet, frothy milk on top.
The restaurant pays homage to its almost-namesake dish—vitello tonnato—pink slices of veal baked over salt at low temperature come cloaked in a divine tuna mayonnaise with just the right doses of anchovy, capers, and mustard.
