In the side valleys near Torino you will find several local communities that have splendid restaurants. During the skiing season they cater also for the ski crowd. I have been lucky to visit in the off-season, when the restaurnat staff has plenty of time and mainly local customers, and the food and the company and the atmosphere just incredible delightful. This is the place that started the concept of slow food.
One such place is La Selvaggio in the O'ulz valley, up in the community of San Sicario
Favorite Dish: Trust the recommendations of the cook, and go in the direction you are most happy with: risottos, pastas, cheesy, veggies, dry, meat, fish. Trust also the waiter to come up with a genuinely good choice of wind that will go very well with your selected food.
The cook will compose a 4-course menu based on your rough selections. In busier times and seasons go for the day's set menues. You will get real Piedmontese food as good as it comes, with the local taste.
