This is the perfect country setting in which to try Chef Francesco Fineo's seasonal Tuscan delicacies: grilled quail served with porcini mushrooms and mosto cotto, ravioli stuffed with spinach and ricotta on a red onion marmalade or strips of char-grilled T-bone steak with truffled mashed potatoes.

Caffe' Torino
Cafe/Sandwich Bar
Piazza San Carlo, 4, Turin; Tel.: 011-545118
This imposing place on the Piazza San Carlo, which opened its doors in 1903, was the haunt of politicians like Einaudi and De Gaspari. In a scallop shell behind the old-fashioned bar stands the rampant bull (toro) which has been the city symbol since Torino was a Roman colony known as Augusta Taurinorum. A great place for an aperitivo, accompanied by the huge array of free munchies that is laid out on the bar.
