Si trova in San Salvario questo bel locale, arredato con gusto, bei tavoli in legno, qualche bottiglia alle pareti, ambiente al tempo steso elegante e famigliare, una trentina di coperti in tutto, più, nella bella stagione, un’altra quindicina nel dehors sulla strada. E poi c’è il valore aggiunto della giovane brigata che si occuperà di voi, a iniziare da Andrea Coghetto, in sala, e Alberto Valletta in cucina. Entrambi si sono diplomati all’Alberghiero Colombatto di Torino, hanno fatto qualche esperienza in ristoranti cittadini per poi ampliare le loro competenze un anno in Irlanda e un paio in Australia. Tornati a casa, aprono il Barbabuc (è il nome di una pianta erbacea edibile tipica del torinese) nell’aprile del 2017, con l‘intento di proporre una loro idea di cucina piemontese classica che valorizzasse le tradizioni del territorio, basata su materie prime eccellenti e locali, per cui ecco le carni della Granda e in stagione funghi e tartufi solo piemontesi, in mancanza se ne fa a meno… Ed ecco la pasta fresca fatta rigorosamente da loro. Insomma: idee chiare e tanta voglia di fare bene… e ci riescono alla grande.

Vediamo qualche piatto. Accanto ai classici antipasti piemontesi, come la Battuta di fassone, le Acciughe e i Tomini al verde, il Vitello tonnato e l’Insalata russa vecchia maniera, il Tagliere di salumi e formaggi piemontesi, ecco la Rolatina di coniglio alle erbe con marmellatina di cipolle rosse. E poi gli Agnolotti del plin ai tre arrosti con la loro riduzione e i Tagliolini 30 tuorli al ragù di piccione, ma anche i Tortelli di cernia e zenzero all’acqua di pomodoro giallo. E ancora l‘Arrosto della vena all’arneis e il Petto d’anatra cotto a bassa temperatura con mango e riso soffiato nero. Gran finale con la Ganache di gianduiotto e la panna cotta alle rose. Propongono anche quattro menù degustazione: Territorio; Funghi; Tartufi; Carne e pesce. Carta dei vini con un centinaio di etichette piemontesi e del resto d’Italia, con in più una bella selezione di Champagne.

    The food was excellent, service as well. 5 points! We took a menu- the only little thing was I expected a desert included;) But If you are looking for a nice dinner typical for Piemont cuisine you should go there!

    The service was excellent. We enjoyed the degustation set menu very much, which gave us an excellent overview of Piedmont cuisine. I would recommend this restaurant for it's delicious, delicate food.

    The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere, very friendly helpful staff and the food and wine was great. What else do you want from a restaurant! An English menu would be helpful:-) But the staff helped us finding good dishes

    We had the Tasting menu which the starters and pasta were very good, but the main dish was not as good. Dessert was a local dish and was also very good. Portions of the dishes were generous and we hardly manage to finish them. The waiters recommendation for the more expensive wine was worth it, a local wine I did not know and very rich in flavour.

    While the menu was in italian only, waitstaff was helpful translating. Dinner was delicious. I had the pork with barley and my companion had fresh spaghetti with crab and lemongrass . House red was great and desserts, pear tart with english cream and chocolate mousse were out of this world.

    It was our first dinner in Turin and it was delicious! Nice cosy place run by young and dedicated staff, with a good variety of dishes and several tasting menus. We spent a truly nice evening there and the food was amazing. Agnolotti was very particular, not the same as in other places we tried them - something really special. Good choice of wine, for every taste and pocket. Really recommended. Book in advance, the place is small.
