Very friendly cafe/restaurant. Lovely local food. Helpful, open staff. Great value compared to many other nearby eateries. Not posh but good, straight forward and honest

We stumbled across this local bar quite by chance in a street just below the castle in a quiet part of the town. The food menu is limited and quite basic but very reasonable. We spent a leisurely hour watching the world go by, just what we were looking for. The interior is adorned with photographs celebrating various historical re-enactments, for which the proprietor obviously has a passion. We would certainly call in again if we were passing.

I was taken to this tiny bar/restaurant (which I'm lead to believe is only open at lunchtime) by a colleague from Ivrea to sample the local food.

I have a very nice antipasti platter sitting outside underneath the turret of the decaying castle in Ivrea, at very reasonable price.

Whilst I probably won't be rushing back here I'm glad I visited it the once.

We came by this bar quite by chance as we were walking down from the castle back to the old town. It is in an unpretentious but characterful domestic street; one of those really narrow ones where you could almost shake hands with your neighbour on the opposite balcony.

The bar had a few tables on the opposite side of the road and when we saw a few locals having a quiet after-work beer, while their dogs played in the street in front of them, it just felt right to sit down and have a couple of beers and soak in the local atmosphere. Which is what we did for a good hour as various local residents passed by on their way home, bidding everyone a cheerful ciao on their way past.

The owner was a friendly chap; the beer was excellent and the complimentary crisps far too much! We didn't eat here or even look at the menu, but saw a couple of locals share a focaccia with a bottle of wine and it looked very tasty.

This is not a trendy or particularly attractive bar/restaurant, but it really made our evening in Ivrea memorable - simply because it isn't touristy. So if you want to sample a bit of the local atmosphere, seek this place out round about 4 o'clock; grab a couple of beers and watch the world go by.
