Osteria le Putrelle

This restaurant, in the city's trendy San Salvario area, is owned by Giovanni Foresto. Like many Torinese, he originally hails from southern Italy. After World War II, many southern Italians migrated to Turin, the city of Fiat and hub of Italy's car manufacturing sector. Le Putrelle's menu choices are thus inspired by both the traditions of Piedmont and Foresto's native Puglia. Pugliese menu highlights include orecchiette con cima di rape (pasta topped with turnips) and purea di fave e cicoria con cipolle rosse (mashed beans and chicory with red onions). As for more locally inspired fare, it's hard to resist the sublime house made pastas, such as their agnolotti alle tre carni and gnocchi made with purple potatoes.
