Restaurants in Turin
Cooler in spirit than the city's traditional cafés.
Order the wild-greens–and-sausage pie at Pizzeria da Cristina, an oasis of Neapolitan warmth and tomato sauce just outside the center.
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.
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.
One of Turin's many famous old cafés where you can have a coffee or aperitif in style.
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.
Fashionable Turinese dig into a fabulous bagna cauda or a velvety parmesan-and-zucchini flan under the vaulted ceiling of this vineria in the happening Quadrilatero Romano neighborhood.
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.
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.
At this enoteca con cucina, share soft chickpea farinata, triangles of airy pesto quiche, crudités, and first-rate salumi.
