While called a "ristorante," L'Angolo del Beato" has the feel of a more rustic (though no less accomplished) eatery like a trattoria or osteria. Family run, possessed of an excellent wine list, a real sense of personality and very good food, it's a real find off the beaten track. Tucked in an alley-way, this charming spot offers a taste of traditional Piemontese cuisine, including bra, the raw meat appetizer like an Italian version of steak tartare (except it's usually made from veal). Much of the menu is seasonal so when I was there in late summer, there were delicious zucchini flowers stuffed with creamy cheese and a knockout salad called simply "Bon Aptit" and described as "boiled vegetables," it was so much more - green beans and roasted fennel mixed with tuna and tomato and bursting with bright flavor. I liked the pastas here (all are freshly made at the restaurant) and highly recommend the gnocchi. With seafood, the calamari is particularly recommended. Several other visitors commented on the price, and while it isn't inexpensive, I thought the restaurant offered very high quality and was not unfairly priced. Be sure to check the wine list that is full of local treasures.

The restaurant is nice, beatifull ceiling and not to big with enough espace between tables.
We order the set menu for one person, 37€, and Tajarin al tartufo and octopus. They were willing to serve everything to share. Which was very nice. The set menú was abundant and just correct, two entrantes, first course, second course and desert. Average food
The service was good but all the sudden before they serve the Tajarin, in the middle of the meal, they stop for almost half hour, they were busy with other tables, and that ruine our meal. The pause was long enough to loose our appetite. Additionaly, the tartufo, 40€ dish, was dry and much less aromatic that we espected. We have them much better in Torino at a similar category restaurant at a significant lower price. The octopus was the best dish; serve over mash patatos well prepare.
Overall, it is not worth a 120€ bill for two.
It was a deception.

Great setting on the square, actual restaurant is hidden away. Food is on the pricey side but good and fresh.

Place is very cute small but very modern. Service was excellent. Family owned and run. Food was amazing but a bit pricey. Off in a alley.

Enjoy our meal here and the service was attentive and helpful. Throughout the meal we received little local extras to try and was offered various wines by the glass to try with each dish. The quality of the meal was great and could not complain about the price.

The only disappointing thing about the restaurant is that it is a little stuffy and formal. Not really my taste...
