    REVIEW
    A little more then one year ago, opened this stylish ang sleek restaurant, in the heart of the "City" of Turin (the banks district). Just in front of the monumental Palazzo Lascaris.

    As soon as you enter you will understand two things: you are in one of the newest glamour place of Turin, and you will spend a lot (if you wish).

    The service is fine and warm, and you feel like entering your club. There are several design-driven seating areas on different levels (I suggest to ask to visit all the rooms).

    The downstairs areas are in the basement, under the vault bricks ceiling, and lead to the underground "Tower". This deserve a visit, a perfect and cool design wine cellar. On two level (the lower deep in the "infernotto" a cellar of the 17th century under the basement), severed just by a glass floor, a wooden tower filled of bottles (900) that can drive crazy any wine lover.

    At this point in some other place the food goes in background... but not here.

    This is one of the place linked to SlowFood association, and put the quality and care of the cuisine in the foreground ever.

    For a three course dinner and two wine bottles we spent 147 euro (two people).

    Only at lunch you can also have a "cheap" menu (16 euro for 2 course; 19 euro for 3 course; 23 euro for 4 course)

    Favorite Dish: What about my eating experience? It has been mixed... not fully satisfying.
    I ate a Fois Grais too much rare, and putted over a bread slice that was fat soaked. The Lamb rib was truly good, but I was expecting something more.
    The same was for the cuttlefish. The dessert were great.
    The proposed wines were superb.
