1. Il Cortiletto

Restaurant, Italian, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free

This family-run restaurant welcomes customers to a friendly and intimate environment. The place is quite small, with only a few tables.

This is a true osteria. Set on the bank of the Dora, right behind the area’s youth hostel, Bocciofila Mossetto features traditional homemade dishes served in a very informal and pleasant environment. If the weather is warm, customers can enjoy the characteristic patio while eating dishes of the day with good local wines.

Trattoria Da Dino

This family-run trattoria serves excellent food at a reasonable price in a lovely and characteristic setting. Da Dino features traditional Piedmontese dishes along with good local wines. The staff is friendly too, perfectly reflecting the neighborhood vibe. This restaurant is also a bar, so it opens really early and it’s open until nighttime. So, customers can enjoy breakfast and happy hour all in one sitting.
