The restaurant is located in the center of a town in Piedmont region in a XIX century building protected by the Superintendence for Architectural Heritage and Landscape. The project involved the construction of a grocery with restaurant where before there was a local photo lab. The main room is dominated by a barrel vault 5.50 m high which has been entirely paneled with tin ceiling, a typical North American finishing for bistro in the 30s'; this type of coating was used to preserve the ceilings of the restaurant kitchens from wear and heat; the tilted mirror on the wall behind the counter as in the ancient butchers and village grocery deliberately reflects the material applied to the ceiling helping to give a greater sense of depth to the room. The counter and the pantry are characterized by dark wood texture that recalls the typical French bistro, as well as the central table and chairs in wood, straw and iron. The furnishings were custom designed, covering all the height available. As regards the lighting have been used glass luminaires, which depending on that are turned off or switched on give a metallic feeling used in combination with the ceiling. In the back there are: the kitchen, the guest bathroom and the dressing room for the staff.
