The Quadrilateral old town of Turin/Torino, just off Piazza Castello is the trendy, nightlife heart of Turin.
Much like Soho or Notting Hill in London it has undergone a metamorphosis over the last few years and any tour of Turin's nightlife should include a visit to this area.
The Tre Galline restaurant dates back to 1575 and has seen it all. The restaurant is still as popular as ever and still sticking to its roots by offering excellent Piedmont fare.
The prices are not the cheapest but the quality is invariably optimal. This is a good place to sample the bollito misto or the fritto misto, two of the hallmark dishes of Piedmont cuisine. However let me warn you they are only for the brave. Just have a look at a recipe to see what I mean.
This restaurant is much renowned in Turin for it’s vast collection of wine which can also be bought here.
The collection of Piedmont wines is exhaustive, as is the collection of Italian wines from other Italian regions with literally thousands of Italy’s best wines on offer.
I have enjoyed many a dinner in this restaurant and can thoroughly recommend it. The proof of just how good it is can be confirmed by the fact that after well over 400 year it is still going strong.
