    We found this jewel of a restaurant thanks to the Fork as it is hidden inside a imposing building with a nice entrance. The service was great and the ambience very unique. We all chose the 7 course meal to try as many local Piedmontese dishes. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The wines that came with the menu were two white and two red wines. While the white wines were very good we felt the two red wines were nothing special and quite bland. But overall very happy with our evening and our choice of restaurant and menu.

    A real jewel of a restaurant in a wonderful setting. Already entering the Palazzo and looking at the courtyard is a real pleasure. The restaurant is quite intimate on the first floor. A good choice à la carte menu, great wine by the glass, excellent local dishes (Plin, Brasato) were just delicious.

    A real jem. A few tables in a beautiful historical palace, welcoming and professional service. However you want to go there for the food. Unforgettable Piedmont recipes with first class products, elegantly cooked by the Chef. I chose the"degustazione" menu with seven courses from antipasto to dessert just to taste different savours and I chose well. They offer an important wine selection as well, let yourself be cherished by the kind maitre and you will be in good and sure hands. Enjoy!

    Truly outstanding restaurant, we had 7 course tasting menu which was exquisite, wonderful service and would not hesitate to recommend. You need to be aware it is in a palace with no signs you have to ask the doorman to let you in.

    From the moment you walk in until the moment you leave you are treated like royalty. The food was perfectly prepared with excellent service. The wine they recommend was a great match for the food

    Excellent service and wonderful food. We enjoyed everything from the Prosecco to the risotto to the turbo and especially the wine. An extensive wine list with staff happy to help you navigate. We can’t wait to dine again!

    An atmospheric restaurant in a charming club environment. The excellent 7 course tasting menu @ €40 per person had us almost unable to eat the second of two desserts, having arrived at the ‘primo’ only half way through the meal. The traditional Piedmontese food was exceptionally well prepared. A flight of 4 wines (1 white, 2 red, 1 dessert) was on offer for €22 each, but we instead shared a €18 bottle of Barbera d’Asti. Delightful place to spend an evening in Turin.

    This is a very unique and funny dining experience for me! I didn’t get a reservation for dinner so decided to go for lunch on a workday. I went after 2pm and it took me 10minutes to find the door even it’s only 5 mins walk from the Egyptian Museum. It was really hidden in the building and you need to ring the doorbell. but the staff are so nice to point the place out to me. The food, and wine recommendation and the service quality are all superb! I like the way that they introduced Piemonte culinary details and make very constructive wine pairing. Love it and definitely want to return and bring my friends!

    We had only lunch at the Ristorante Circolo dei Lettori but in our memories it is one of the best meals we had in Torino - excellent food, excellent wine, excellent service. We simply loved it and will definitely return for a dinner.

    This is an exceptional dining experience, specializing in regional fare that is sure to give great memories and future cravings to return. The waitstaff was very kind, generous and attentive. They also did an amazing job handling a couple of single dads who had 3 young ones.....who wanted to order basic food (like pizza) that wasn’t on the menu. So we do suggest only dining here if you want a rich and authentic experience....if you want something plain, just stop at a cafe or local pizzeria. Order the 7 course tasting menu for the real deal and you certainly won’t leave hungry. Definitely the best lunch we’ve had in Italy, and we enjoyed it from 1 to 3 p.m., so we won’t even need to eat dinner....except for maybe a scoop of gelato! Thank you Circolo for the delicioso meal!!!
