“We made history and now we’re going to eat,” Cavour said after reading the war proclamation against Austria.Do you know where he went next? Right to the restaurant Del Cambio, his favorite, located on the same square of Palazzo Carignano, first the seat of the parliament of the Kingdom of Sardinia and then the parliament of united Italy.
The history of this restaurant, born in 1757, speaks for itself: the lighthouse of Turin’s gastronomy for centuries even today continues to be a point of reference for the entire Piedmontese capital. In particular from 2014, the start date of the “new course” which saw a profound restoration of the interiors and the assignment of the kitchen to the young and starred chef Matteo Baronetto.
Today the Del Cambio restaurant presents itself as the ultimate representative of Savoy elegance and refinement: tall mirrors running along the walls, sumptuous crystal chandeliers, stuccoes and velvets. The atmosphere certainly replicates what Cavour witness during his meals.
The atmosphere is characterized by timeless fascination of the past, as even the dishes, trace the history of Turin’s gastronomy through two menus. The first one is concentrated on tradition, with the most classic dishes that one might expect from an institution like this restaurant, from the veal to the mixed boiled veal passing through the agnolotto. On the other we find the second tasting menu in which the chef Baronetto combines the traditional versions of the great classics with his decidedly more contemporary reinterpretations.
Reflecting the Del Cambio philosophy, the à la carte menu moves neatly between past and present with timeless dishes, fruit of inspiration and reasoned improvisation of the chef Baronetto.
Let yourself be captivated by the charm of time in one of the most beautiful historical locations in Italy and relive the great flavors of Italy by Count Cavour.
