Pasticceria Capello

This pastry parlour has an elegant and calm atmosphere, where you can enjoy every moment of the day: from breakfast to the classical Piedmontese apericena. Indeed, along with delicious desserts and coffees, you can try a varied aperitifs, often inspired by the national cuisines of various countries.


Italy knows coffee, and Turin is no exception. In the city centre, you can find plenty of long-lived cafes mirroring the splendour and elegance of days of old. Turin cafes are all about chocolate and gianduja cream (a mix of chocolate and nuts). Speaking of which, do not miss the chance to try Bicerin, which comes in two forms: a hot drink of carefully layered espresso, chocolate and milk or a 15% liquor that tastes like Gianduiotto hazelnut chocolate. Last but not least, don't leave Italy before tasting a real Italian gelato. A very typical Turin tradition is the apericena (halfway between aperitif and dinner) served in almost all bars and cafes of the city, for which normally one pays for the drink and gets various dishes with it. It is the ideal meal to start your night in this amazing city.
