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.

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.

While the menu was in italian only, waitstaff was helpful translating. Dinner was delicious. I had the pork with barley and my companion had fresh spaghetti with crab and lemongrass . House red was great and desserts, pear tart with english cream and chocolate mousse were out of this world.
