Around 20 minutes walk from Piazza Castello, on the left at the section is Solferino Cucina. When you see this fountain at the intersection the restaurant is right across of it. I forgot to take a picture as i was lost and starving when i finally found the place.
It’s a homey & comforting with generous seating, with a simple but elegant setting. The menu was quite extensive but i ordered their Torino Steak Tartare and the ravioli with butter and sage. First came the bread basket, hard rolls and the grissini sticks. Yum. Nice and crunchy!
The steak tartare is served table side where they mix it right in front of you with Olive oil and salt. I think they want to showcase their local beef which is why there is hardly any dressing at all, Olive oil and a hint of lemon. Personally the beef was savory and delicious but it was too bland for my taste. Although the tableside performance was quite enjoyable! Eating it with the mustard was yummy with the bread sticks, i think the bread rolls were too hard for me.
The portion was so generous i admit that i was already quite full, however the ravioli arrived at the table and it smelt so so so good. You can smell the delicate touches of sage, Parmesan and the butter. It was piping hot, meaty, salty, cheesy and oh so delicious. It was so simple but beautifully done. The pasta was al dente, giving that delicate bite before you sink into the meaty savoury deliciousness! Look at it up close, it’s really really sooo good.
Of course i couldn’t move but i had to have an espresso afterwards the “Italian Way” and it came with 4 ginormous biscuits! Delish, delish, delish!!!
