Positive experience that we will repeat, we ate a great fried fish (12th) a good beer (3rd the small) and a superb ice cream (2.5th the cup) in a really nice environment. Eight satisfied people who will be back soon.
Nice idea but a poor execution, especially compared to the central market in Florence. The quality of food is high and the decor is nicely done....however there is nothing unique that you can't find already in the rest of Turin for less than half the price. Of course a lot of investment went into this but the actual environment is still just a chaotic food court and prices do not reflect what you get, rather they reflect the initial investment. To pay more than what you find in a real restaurant is a little ridiculous. It was great to see but unfortunately I'd rarely go back. The biggest disappointment was that there isn't anything unique from what you can find in the rest of Turin. I'd love to see some more creativity or foods from other parts of Turin or the world because those really are rare in the city.
This building has probably find out its vocation. There's still something to improve, the second floor shops don't exactly fit with the restaurants and the mood of the ground floor, I hope it's just a matter of time. There a little terrace with a view on the square where the buildings by Filippo Juvarra are and where take place one of the biggest open air market in Europe, with, on the background, the Holy Shroud chapel, the Mole Antonelliana and the hill. The building also houses the old ice-house of the city. It's a nice place where to have a break while having a tour of the city.
