Liguria for Turin is synonymous to summer holidays, the sea & great oily focaccia.
In the very centre of the city, just around the corner of Piazza Vittorio (our nightlife core) you’ll find this really yellow, simple, fresh place.
Everyone in there is young and passionate. They’ll welcome you with the classic Focaccia genovese. You have a great choice between a variety of “Buccun” — Ligurean tapas. Not an entrèe but not a tiny bite either. You can allow yourself two of them, three if you’re hungry. They can be grilled octopus with lentils, shrimps and squids with lemon and sage, raw purple shrimps from Sanremo alone. Or maybe you fancy some meat and choose some Ligurean rabbit.
There are also bigger main dishes, both pasta and meat or fish courses. I have to mention some great tagliolini with lemon, burrata and raw shrimps.
Last but not the least: the desserts. I recently had a Gianduja mousse (hazelnut chocolate typical of Turin) with a syrup chinotto (a citrus fruit typical of Liguria) and bites of sugar coated focaccia. That was genius! And at the very end a very good coffee and a selection of Ligurean liqueurs (the rose or chinotto ones are unique).
The wines are also great
The waiters & owners are really polite and they’ll satisfy every curiosity and question you can ask. They’re also very interested in art and editorial projects, so please keep an eye on them because there are big works in progress. Not only in the kitchen.
