Nessun riferimento nel nome ai Sex Pistols o ai Clash, semmai al dio Pan, simbolo di accoglienza, amicizia e divertimento… guardate la bella opera grafica appesa alla parete che lo vede come protagonista. Quindi il locale, aperto da maggio 2018, in pieno centro, alle spalle di Piazza Solferino, vuole essere accogliente e farvi sentire a proprio agio. E di fatto appena entrate trovate un punto di accoglienza, o se preferite un welcome point, dove vi verrà offerto un calice di vino con qualche stuzzichino. Poi salite la scale e vi trovate in un ambiente elegante ma in modo soft, belle tavole e altrettanto belle luci a creare un’atmosfera rilassata e intima. Altra segnalazione: andate a lavarvi le mani e date un’occhiata all’originalità del lavandino… Tornate al tavolo e affidatavi alla professionalità del direttore di sala, Roberto Montero (è stato anche dai Mondavi in California…) e del sommelier Nicola Cirasella.
La cucina proposta è tradizionale con slanci innovativi concreti e ben controllati. Detto che i coperti in tutto sono una cinquantina e che a pranzo viene proposto un menù che varia ogni settimana, vediamo qualche piatto per farvi capire la bella aria che tira. Iniziamo col Tortino di porri, crema di castagna, salsiccia di Bra e scaglia di parmigiano oppure l’altrettanto goloso Polpo scottato con zucca al rosmarino e pane alle olive taggiasche. Tra i primi un notevole Risotto con zucca, porri, gamberi e lime, ma interessanti pure gli Agnolotti del plin ai tre arrosti con salsa alle nocciole. Passiamo ai secondi piatti con dei buonissimi Calamaretti farciti con crema di piselli e pane carasau o la Tagliata di sottofiletto di vitello con fichi, cipolle rosse e senape. Finale in dolcezza con il Cremoso al cioccolato bianco, frutto della passione e crumble salato alla nocciola. Carta dei vini all’altezza con più di 180 etichette italiane ed estere. Secondo me sarebbe piaciuto anche a Sid Vicious…

Very nice place, with the right tone in terms of hospitality and decoration. Good and creative menu and rightly priced wines. recommanded!
The Pank Restaurant is fantastic and definitely worth a visit. The staff are superbly welcoming attentive and diligent.The food is exquisite and the wine list enthralling. The whole ambiance of the restaurant is perfect , 10 out of 10!
Liked the welcome downstairs with a glass of wine. Liked the staff who was super nice. Didn‘t really like the food, everything was too sweet, from the octopus to the lamb. Recommending more fine-dining plate arrangements - „with wasabi“ should e fine tiny bit as a decore line and not three mountains of wasabi on the plate. Would fit the experience of the staff and interior more.
Restaurant opened in 2018 with seating in a tasteful salon upstairs in a historic building. Huge choice of wines and you could, if wanted, taste a different one with every course. We ate here at lunch where there was a 3 course menu for eur 30. Absolutely fantastic value. Choice of antipasto, first course and second course either fish or meat. We chose one of each. The food was excellent - many traditional foods with something different or innovative (Tartare di Fassona, ravoli del plin, slow cooked pork with amazing sauces, polipo, ravioli nero di seppie ripieni di bietole with gamberi, ombrina). The presentation was great and the service very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant. The bathroom has a great quirky twist - visit it.
For the price it was expensive. We had five items: the squid and the chocolate dessert were excellent but the risotto, bonito, and gnocchi were just average.
A warm welcoming of wine and house made focaccia as we waited for our table. Stylish and minimal design , the decor awakened your senses and created an expectation. Attentive service, refined setting, creative, fresh and superb flavors played on the palate. Comprehensive Wine list. A evening to remember.
What a great find. The service from the very stay if the evening to the end was fantastic. Food was superb and the wine list excellent. A great restaurant.
Lovely new looking restaurant off the main street. A quick white wine reception (on the house) at the lobby followed by dinner on the upper floor. Every dish we had was wonderful. Only area for improvement is for the staff to be a little friendlier.
One of the best places where to eat in Turin. Outstanding customer service and dishes quality. Highly recommended.
A very nice culinary experience. Inventive local cuisine : traditional dishes revisited! Wine list very extensive! 10/10 would recommend.
Ottima esperienza, da rifare!
Liked the food, the ambience and the service. Was surprised when I got the bill to find that the wine was 25 euros per glass.
Incredible food. Delicate and fulfilling with brilliant wines to match.
I hope we will come back ones or twice Star or no star they( all team)do good job Last but not least---very correct price for such delicious meal. Keep going guys
It was my birthday, we travelled to Turin especially for an evening out, and chose the Pank based on reviews. Wished we'd chosen somewhere else. The service was slow and particularly bad we were left with plates on our table which weren't cleared away even though staff knew we'd finished. I found the portions too large, the starter had too much cream so you couldn't taste the rest and I found the gnocchi a bit heavy. I would have liked a couple of more options on a set menu, the one on offer only had selections which I found unethical and therefore couldn't select. The restaurant has been fitted out really well and the intention to provide high standard are there but it fell short on delivering.
This restaurant was amazing! The dining room is located one floor up and you have to ring the door bell to be let in. The waiting area is very nice with modern furniture. We were served a glass of wine wile waiting to be seated. The upstairs seating space was very classy. The restaurant only fits about 70 people and the night we were there it wasn't very full so it was perfect for a romantic evening. The food was stellar! Delicious and beautifully presented.
