Balla will always be one of my favorite. I always order brioche al pistacchio there. Great pastries, cakes and chocolates!

Went on two occasions, on first visit tried a "Balino" what seemed like a chocolate ball drowned in coffee. Unusual but delicious and rich, if you wish to be diferent and like chocolate this is it! The "Torta 900" is like heaven, rich and decadent...to say the least. Other pastry treats on offer, all excellent...More

Very tasty italian and european desserts. Little expensive but good quality. Just have to verify the opening and closing times...Small cities of Italy are very “special” with schedules!!

Not bad, but the 900 cake is nothing special in my opinion so I got quite disappointed after eating a slice of it for the first time a couple of weeks ago..

The Canavese area is not a destination for many tourists but should definitely be! When in the area you must stop in Ivrea for a slice of heaven: the famous torta 900!

If you are in Ivrea and you have a sweet tooth, you cannot miss this place! Along the Dora riverside in a nice place, though I used to like the old one much more!

I have been to Balla on different occasions, but do not plan to go back again. The pastries are good, but the Novecento is not worth all the hype. And the service is not friendly, nor quick.

There is only one place in the world (literally) where you can buy a Torta 900, and this place is Balla in Ivrea. The Torta 900 is a quite ugly looking cake, but do not be mislead by the looks because its heart is heaven....No attempt of copying it was ever successful. And while you wait for the cake to be assembled (yes it is assembled real-time), you should drink a Ballino, a wonderful cappuccino in a glass filled with crema 900.... I don't have much else to say, because the only way to make you really understand, is by taking you there..... :)More
