Turin-natives Debora and Paolo keep hunger pangs at bay with hearty antipasti and exquisite ravioli at their outstanding restaurant located by the Le Santocha. The backdrop? Vintage West Coast Vibes, a cubed wooden ceiling, sixties-style couches and a window display filled with salami. The night we went, after a giant apéro platter (roasted eggplant with ricotta and mint, 125-gram burrata, sweet pepperoncini, taralli biscuits, plenty of charcuterie…), it was a “dance with pasta!” In other words, some divine agnolotti with shredded roasted beef in a red wine sauce, Piedmont plin (agnolotti) with sage and melted fontina from Val d’Aoste… For dessert, there was some excellent homemade tiramisu. And it’s also worth noting that there’s a selection of well-topped crostini (tirolesi with grilled speck, tomino, honey and dried figs..). // D.N.
