We had a delicious lunch here after a morning exploring the arcades between the Piazza Castello and the Porta Susa train station. It's on a residential street just off the beautiful, tree lined Corso Vinzaglio.

Every table is served a plate of local salami, some it only cured and looking like fat links of raw sausage. We shared a salad of bagna cauda. This is a salad version of the traditional dish, here served as a dressing on greens and grated carrot.

This was followed with another shared pasta course of agnoletti del pin, a round version of stuffed ravioli in a butter and sage sauce.

We then had secondi of delicious roast chicken and roast lamb. We drank a bottle of their house wine which was a 2007 Dolcetto.

We ended with coffee and grappa. The bill for two was 71 euro.

By the time we left the restaurant, whose walls and shelves were covered with collections of musical instruments and clocks, was filled with local diners. Many were eating huge portions of bollito misto served and carved from a large rolling cart.
