A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Si trova in San Salvario questo bel locale, arredato con gusto, bei tavoli in legno, qualche bottiglia alle pareti, ambiente al tempo steso elegante e famigliare, una trentina di coperti in tutto, più, nella bella stagione, un’altra quindicina nel dehors sulla strada. E poi c’è il valore aggiunto della giovane brigata che si occuperà di voi, a iniziare da Andrea Coghetto, in sala, e Alberto Valletta in cucina. Entrambi si sono diplomati all’Alberghiero Colombatto di Torino, hanno fatto qualche esperienza in ristoranti cittadini per poi ampliare le loro competenze un anno in Irlanda e un paio in Australia. Tornati a casa, aprono il Barbabuc (è il nome di una pianta erbacea edibile tipica del torinese) nell’aprile del 2017, con l‘intento di proporre una loro idea di cucina piemontese classica che valorizzasse le tradizioni del territorio, basata su materie prime eccellenti e locali, per cui ecco le carni della Granda e in stagione funghi e tartufi solo piemontesi, in mancanza se ne fa a meno… Ed ecco la pasta fresca fatta rigorosamente da loro. Insomma: idee chiare e tanta voglia di fare bene… e ci riescono alla grande.

Vediamo qualche piatto. Accanto ai classici antipasti piemontesi, come la Battuta di fassone, le Acciughe e i Tomini al verde, il Vitello tonnato e l’Insalata russa vecchia maniera, il Tagliere di salumi e formaggi piemontesi, ecco la Rolatina di coniglio alle erbe con marmellatina di cipolle rosse. E poi gli Agnolotti del plin ai tre arrosti con la loro riduzione e i Tagliolini 30 tuorli al ragù di piccione, ma anche i Tortelli di cernia e zenzero all’acqua di pomodoro giallo. E ancora l‘Arrosto della vena all’arneis e il Petto d’anatra cotto a bassa temperatura con mango e riso soffiato nero. Gran finale con la Ganache di gianduiotto e la panna cotta alle rose. Propongono anche quattro menù degustazione: Territorio; Funghi; Tartufi; Carne e pesce. Carta dei vini con un centinaio di etichette piemontesi e del resto d’Italia, con in più una bella selezione di Champagne.

    The host was very kind and entertaining, even for our 5 year old daughter. Dishes where typical and generally very good, we very much appreciated the "guancia brasata". One dish, off the menu, with truffles could have been more flavourful. All in all a good experience.

    White truffle pasta and good suggestion for the wine. Excellent dessert for chocolate lovers. High price even with the discount but truffle is a special dish.

    Great service, delicious well sourced food. My rare beef starter with horseradish sauce was incredably tender and tasty as was my husband vitello tonata. Pasta course was also amazing , the plin os some of the best we have had in Turin and my crab pasta was homemade and tated of the sea. We are in Turin at least twice a year and we always eat here and will continue to do so. Thankyou for a great experience and meal our first after lockdown.

    Very nice food, cosy and friendly atmosphere, waiter forgot to let us taste an expensive wine before pouring it, but small detail in an otherwise very friendly and satisfactory meal. Recommended, would go there again

    Great food and service. We really enjoyed our meal. I had a classic Tajarin with white truffles to start and Goose breast as a main dish. Very well cooked with great flavour. My partner had the Tomini (a typical cheese starter) and Battuta al Coltello (tartare) which she enjoyed very much. Two glasses of local red wine, Nebbiolo and Barbera, very good indeed and very tasty dessert. Beautiful little restaurant in a quiet part of town at a very good price. Book ahead as it’s worth it!

    The food was excellent, service as well. 5 points! We took a menu- the only little thing was I expected a desert included;) But If you are looking for a nice dinner typical for Piemont cuisine you should go there!

    The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere, very friendly helpful staff and the food and wine was great. What else do you want from a restaurant! An English menu would be helpful:-) But the staff helped us finding good dishes

    We had the Tasting menu which the starters and pasta were very good, but the main dish was not as good. Dessert was a local dish and was also very good. Portions of the dishes were generous and we hardly manage to finish them. The waiters recommendation for the more expensive wine was worth it, a local wine I did not know and very rich in flavour.
