An unmissable destination for market explorers, who love bright colors and clean scents: Porta Palazzo is ready to welcome you among its stands and crowd. If it is fresh fish you desire, the Pescheria Gallina, at 14b of Piazza della Repubblica awaits you with one of the best fish selections found in Turin.
With a centuries-old tradition, spanning four generations, the fish farm Gallina has always stood out for the quality and specificity of its catch. Beppe Gallina, has managed the “counter number 2” since 1984 with innovation, proposing a careful selection of fresh fish every day, transforming the fishmonger into a popular trattoria.
Entering the first room you find yourself in the fish shop, exposed white tiles and a few tables where you can refresh yourself among the fresh fish; in the second, instead on high stools and a counter that runs around the kitchen where you can watch the chefs, you can taste one of the delicacies of the sea selected from the counter.
The menu of the day offers five different dishes in rotation, best combined with homemade focaccia and house wine. Caserecce of mussels and prawns, bream of the valley to the plate, copounet of cod and many other varied combinations that oscillate between eating roast (sea bream and sea bass) and eating raw (tuna and salmon) with sushi, sashimi, carpaccio and tartare.
With a staff always ready to suggest the best recipe and the most original dishes, combining the highest quality and the minimum waste of processing of the product, the Pescheria Gallina-banco No. 2 also offers help in your kitchen. An Italian and a Japanese cook, work in collaboration to offer you a selected service of home cuisine for your theme nights.
Through an entrée or his terrace overlooking the square on sunny days, the fish farm Gallina and its staff of excellence are ready to welcome you with their kindness and creativity to ensure that you have a good lunch.
