Food & Drinks

We get how it is: it’s Friday night, you want to go out, but can’t agree with your friends about the restaurant to go, or you really can’t remember that place they said brunch was so good. In this section you’ll find all our advices for your best lunch, dinner, breakfast or drinking night.


Breakfast at Farmacia del Cambio

Breakfast… my favourite meal of the day and my favourite moment of the day. But breakfast for me has to be slow, always different and, most important SILENT. Usually it’s the moment when I charge myself full of vitamins and nutrients for the day! Because for me the way I start the day influences completely the way my day will be… if it’s loud and lousy, my day will be the same. Can you imagine what amazing day I had after breakfast at Farmacia del Cambio? It was a little treat, out of my comfort & healthy zone, but I […]

Out of time, place and the city. For me “Torteria Berlicabarbis” is a little and sweet boutique for those who are always eager to taste new sweet things. This place of Turin reminds me of my afternoons after highschool, sitting there with a piece of cake and a hot chocolate, talking and smiling. Alice Berlicabarbis Via Catania 10 | Torino +39 011 231032 Budget € 5/10 Monday  7 am – 1 pm From Tuesday till Thursday 7 am – 2 am Friday and Saturday 7 am – 3am Sunday 8.30 am – 1 pm “Mouth-watering” The word “Berlicabarbis” is not just a […]

Mollìca | Small producers

As you probably already notived, for me it’s important to understand stories and values behind every culinary experience. Excellent, as Mollìca, a new born in San Salvario (Piazza Madama Cristina), has got a cute one to tell. The entrance highlights every kind of products: cold cuts, cheeses and seasonable vegetables sitting alongside to filled bread baskets. A call on the door leaves me surprised and smiling: “Come in… this is who’s inside your sandwich!”. So here I am, ready to introduce him to you..

Da Varsa – La capanna dei nonni

Vanchiglia, downtown area, super in the centre, a bustling district, so bustling that every time I leave to visit my family for more than a week, new bars and shops have popped up like mushrooms on my return. And this is more or less what happened with “Da Varsa – the grandparents’ hut”; for months, or rather years, I walked in and out of Via Guastalla but one day BOOM! colourful shutters, lights on the ceiling and graffiti. A restaurant difficult to define with one word but that, believe me, is the result of a young couple’s passion and their […]

Aperitivo alla Farmacia del Cambio Torino

The time of aperitivo is my favorite time of the day, especially in the summer.

If you find yourself for aperitivo at the Farmacia del Cambio, in such a fascinating place, things can become even more interesting.

Carlina Restaurant & Bar | Terrace and cocktails at high altitude

When I was living in NYC, going out for a cocktail on a rooftop of a hotel was weekly activity: taking a lift to enjoy the panorama at high altitude, siping a Martini with  a view of Central Park was considered normal. Infinitely relaxing. The idea of associating the hotel with the function of cocktail bar (and much more) has finally arrived in the Savoy capital. When I stumbled into a great photo on Instagram by Laura Comolli, I decided it was time to test this new format. Meet the Carlina Restaurant & Bar on the rooftop of the Hotel […]
