Candy/Chocolate Shop Torino
I'm headed to Torino next Sat. Can anyone recommend a good candy shop in the center of town?
Really, more than one:
BARATTI & MILANO
NEUV CAVAL 'D BRONS
SAN TOMMASO 10
i used tha alphabetic sort so that there is no my personal rank in this list.
Each one of this gorgeous shops is in the center of Torino.
Enjoy it, ciao.
In each one of these shops you can find what you're searching for; particularly at Baratti&Milano.
Anyway, not in the center of the town but not so far from it, maybe the good shop for you could be STEFFANONE where you will find what you want. Look at its website www.steffanone.com .
I favour Baratti and Milano too, also great ice-cream. I wouldn't bother with the Choco-pass, it gives you free public transport for 2 days plus coupons for one piece of chocolate from 15 participating chocolatieres (not B&M) which no-one ever uses all of them. better value is the Torino-Piedmont card which gives you free access on public transport plus all museums/galleries in 2,3,5&7 day passes. http://www.turismotorino.org/index.ph...
Get a copy of Torino Chocolate from any of the tourist offices and it has a map of all the famous chocolaterieres
WhileI would not necessarily recommend the ChocoPass (we received them free courtesy of our hotel and made good use of them), it should be noted that the Pass does not include free public transport and that the coupons are good for chocolate in candy form as well as in drinks, including bicerin, and in cakes. Several of the participating locations are out of the center city.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I don't know why anyone didn't mention these two places because they were both excellent and centrally located.
Guido Gobino: 1 Lagrange I'm a sucker for salty and sweet so when I saw the cremini al sale I took a whole bunch away with me. They also had a really good bourbon cream. This place is more modern and upscale than traditional and upscale.
Stratta: Piazza San Carlo 191 I forget the name in Italian but in the US we call them jordan almonds. Just like grandma used to give you, or at least me. They had a lot of other delicious looking candy and I would have bought more if I hadn't found Gobino first.
Just as a side note I went to Bicerin as well. While I love zabaglione, I don't recommend ordering one when it's 80 degrees outside.
The pictures are in the window at Stratta and the bicerin/zabaglione combo.
