For those who like to frequent charming premises, where the atmosphere is refined and the surroundings are well-tended to, the most suited address in Turin is Villa Vela. Located in a white, nineteenth-century building, the restaurant opens in the morning for breakfast, and then the service continues with lunch and dinner, going on into late evening as a stylish cocktail bar. The building, restored according to the design studio Isacco Brioschi’s project, was brought back to its old splendour through the recovery of fixtures and wooden floors, along with the careful restoration of the frescoes. The internal organization of the spaces has been changed. For example, the entrance has been converted into a wonderful terrace, ideal for organizing events. The rooms inside follow one another and are furnished in different ways: the backlit and contemporary Corian countertop creates a nice contrast with the wall paintings and simple, custom-designed furniture. The restaurant serves exquisite seafood dishes, along with a wide selection of wines.
