Tacabanda is a restaurant that hides in a tiny alley next to the Teatro Alfieri – not easy to find. The only thing you see on street level is the door and stairs leading down. (In season they also have tables outside.) The restaurant is in an old vaulted cellar, probably centuries old.
It is an excellent address first for their broad selection of wines – one entire wall in the restaurant is covered in wine bottles, some 350 different wines on offer. And then for its cuisine.
They serve traditional Piedmontese dishes. We have for example tried the classic “steak tartare”, the raw minced meat steak that is so typical for the region (it is very different from a French style steak tartare and a classic Piemonte dish!).
We have only been there once but were very satisfied, and have heard very positive feedback from others. Very well prepared food and friendly service. The atmosphere in the restaurant is quite cosy and slightly modern. Moderate prices.
