Many people talk about apericena with a negative connotation. Affini takes on a monstrous hybrid of gourmet and refined tones that make this place a real gem. A destination for all those who love good drinks and quality cooking.
Affini is truly a splendor, in every sense.. In San Salvario it represents a unique combination of refinement, quality and conviviality providing the perfect mix for an ideal evening. Once you enter, they have a desire to make their customers feel good. The beautiful interior is curated in taste and wisdom.
Strokes of light fall from the ceiling, illuminating the Tiffany colored walls and the opaque iron of the tables, shelves and chairs. As the light burshed the large amount of bottles on the wall, the magnificent structure that dominates the counter is seen. Resonating with the message, “here you drink good”.
Famous for its extremely wide selection of vermouth, Affini offers a wide range of top quality liquors that the skilled barman mix into unusual cocktails, teasing the imagination of anyone here. With cocktails includng the exotic Bloody Wu with vodka, horseradish, miso , wasabi, sichuan pepper, lime and tomato nectar or the Turin Doptravaj with Campari bitters, red vemouth, chestnut honey with rosemary and tonic water.
Each cocktail has its “natural” pairing of different tapas options suggested by the menu. This is precisely noted as Affini’s strong point: “beautiful and good” dishes are served at the table. Here then we find dishes with a more international flavor like the bocadillo of hemp flour with tentacle of scalded octopus and Catalan sauce or shrimp taquito and pico de gallo and others that mix the Turin tradition with foreign influences such as the cheek tostada braised with vermouth and hazelnuts and celeriac with wasabi.
Ladies and gentlemen, here you are, Affini, buon appetite!
