Reviews / Restaurant

Ristorante Consorzio is almost as famous for its selection of fine cheeses as its delicious wines. After one evening dining here I understand why. The selections of both are extensive and top-notch, and feature a variety of each from around the country.

 

The restaurant prides itself on utilizing food from places both near and far from Turin, including cuts of meat you might not often find elsewhere. Dinner began with a sampling of the sweetbreads stuffed with smoked apricots, perfectly prepared and scrumptious. My first course featured ravioli stuffed with offal, a first for me but also quite tasty. Finally, the main course was something I also had not experienced before. I opted for the pigeon stuffed with ice cream made with verbena. Though unusual, it was easily the best part of the meal. Perfectly cooked and exotic to my American palette, I would easily order it again.

 

The restaurant itself was lovely. The interior was quaint, though sparsely decorated and quite a bit more informal than I was expecting. The staff was superb, and happy to help with choosing both food and wine. Our waiter spoke little English, so communication might’ve been a factor if we did not already speak the language. Overall, I felt the restaurant was warm and inviting, and the meal certainly one of the best I had while in Turin. I would certainly recommend Ristorante Consorzio to family and friends.
