The restaurant name is fitting because the name "Il Ciacolon" means to be a talker. Well the host did just that. She is very gracious and made me feel right at home. I started off my meal with an assortment of "appetizers". You can go up as many times that you want. The food is freshly prepared with a good... More

At times you have an experience that you know is so unique and special that you will never forget. This didn't feel like visiting a restaurant for a meal. It was as if we had been invited to someone's beautiful home for an incredible luncheon. Frederica, the owner, personally greeted us and welcomed us into her lovely setting. She explained... More

A bit out of the movida, this restaurant serves typical Friuli dishes, with a great formula: excellent buffet starters + 3 types.of menu. Very traditional place and food, excellent service. A must.

Good location; italian food from Veneto. Self service starters, hot and cold. Very good. After that You'll not be able to eat anything else... Fantastic desserts. Normal main courses (but stop at the starters!!!!) Just a little bit expensive (starters + dessert + water approximately 30 €/person

Situated a bit outside Torino centre, not to far from the river bank, still a very characteristic and genuine place. An absolute must for Italian food lovers. Not for a pizza but the extreme traditional and outstanding antipasti-buffet. You have eaten enough if you only taste form half of the dishes. The place looks like an old store: you are... More

Description
Ciacolon is one of those places where time seems to have stood still. One of those rare places where you can hide away from the pressing rhythm of everyday life and, at least for a few hours, enjoy the same warm and friendly atmosphere as ever. Greeted with a smile and with the courtesy given to guests, you take a seat in the wide dining room friendly and warm, with the walls stuffed with paintings that tell the story of forty years. At the ringing of the Bell, you get to the buffet where the gaze lose its way along the table of starters, like a child in front the window of a toy store.
