Carlina Restaurant & Bar

Apperitif on the terrace, superb cocktails, and haute cuisine

Yes, it’s true, they are located in a Hotel, but who said that the bar and kitchen of a hotel can not be a luxury destination for lovers of mixology and original dishes? Carlina Bar & Restaurant is the right place for those who want to enjoy an aperitif on the terrace or a gallant dinner.

The square is called Carlo Emanuele II but all the Turinese know it as Carlina. The historical building is from the late 800s (which was the home of Gramsci) and inside the Nh Hotels you can find these two luxurious places that embrace the arc of the whole day. Let’s start at the bar with its incredible cedar wood counter made by the Turin-based artisan Santo Cinalli, the blue and creamy white sponged walls and essential, clean yet relaxing furniture that create an area of ​​total comfort in which you can relax after a tiring day.


Elegance continues to dominate even in the dining room characterized by warmer tones and circular chandeliers that illuminate a beautiful parquet with multi-shaped veins. Luxury is confirmed as you climb the magnificent panoramic terrace where the minimalism of the flower beds (very Japanese style garden) and the perfection of the space surrounded by the jaw dropping views of Turin.

If this is just the landscape, can you imagine that the cocktails and dishes are any less? Absolutely not, they indeed go far beyond expectations. The cuisine of the young and talented chef Vasyl Andrusyshyn will amaze you with his international vocation with an exotic touch (his roots grounded in Piedmontese soil). From the risotto “Acquerello” creamed to shiso, miso and Lapsang tea roasted lamb on chicory, beets, and marsala through Entrana Platano, puntarelle and vietanamita coffee and hemp, octopus and tzatziki tortillas. They are a show even just to read them.

The bar is ideal for an aperitif (accompanied by original tapas) or a cocktail after dinner. This is the realm of barman Alberto Terzi, who signs a drink list that is as respectful of the classics as it is open to experimentation and fun. Listed are the classics such as Negroni and Americano but one may be advised towards a strictly seasonal signature cocktail that best expresses the Mixology philosophy of which these barmen excell.

Let yourself be pampered by the expert hands of these professionals and treat yourself to a bit of real luxury that, at the end of a long week of office, is well deserved.

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences turin has to offer.
