Flavours Of Piemonte The restaurant we have chosen for you is situated in a small village just outside Turin. It is a very beautiful spot in the hillside and from the central square one has a lovely view over the valley. The cozy restaurant was opened in 2002 as a "lifetime dream" for the owner as she wanted to create a kitchen offering genuine homemade local dishes in an atmosphere like welcoming people into one's home. The cozy restaurant has conserved the original structure with wooden rafters, stone walls and floors in old Piemonte style. The menu we offer you varies according to the time of year, so one has the possibility to try really fresh locally cooked Tuscan dishes. There is a choice of desserts and a choice of local wines or beer plus mineral water and coffee or herb tea. At the end of the evening return back to the centre of Turin with memories of having tasted genuine Piemonte specialities.
