A starred chef and an award-winning pastry chef come together at an exceptional location on one of the symbolic squares uniting Italy. With a touch of Savoy refinement, Pharmacy Del Cambio brings class and excellence to Turin.
Located in what once was an ancient Bestente Pharmacy, the charm from the early nineteenth century Turin hovers among the tall wooden shelves and the woodwork that climbs the walls, blending the most modern forms of furniture. Today these walls bear the name of one of the most famous places in Turin: Del Cambio. Loved by Cavour and the Savoy aristocracy, this version of a Pharmacy portrays a more urban and contemporary vision of gourmet gastronomy paired with exceptional pastries.
An authentic restaurant signed by two names of excellence, starred chef Matteo Baronetto and pastry chef Fabrizio Galla. Together, they managed to create a menu filled with unique flavors that embrace every moment of the day.
Starting with breakfast, Galla’s confectionary produces fresh delicacies every morning including the most common leavened products to creative mignon of all kinds. They offer a variety of cakes, including the Jessica cake which was awarded at the Coupe du Monde de Patisserie. Traditionally made, each delicacy is presented in contemporary style like the bunet, the giandujotto, or the krumiro.
Chef Baronetto has the perfect lunch proposal, even if you’re in a hurry and do not want to give up a gourmet meal. Quality express cuisine offered in a classy take-away box, always up to Del Cambio expectations. When you read the menu, it is impossible to miss the pinch of Piedmontese tradition in the Russian salad, anchovies and greens which are married with the most contemporary needs of a “light lunch.” Thus, leaving space for a lighter speciality dishes designed day by day in the kitchen.
However, at the end of the day, you can comfortably sit down for an original and entertaining aperitif. In addition to the classics, you can try one of the Pharmacy Del Cambio bottled cocktails. Small bottles that remind us of the syrup with different names and tastes. Try the Forzuto, a martini cocktail with the addition of chartreuse (French liqueur prepared by the Carthusian monks) or the Audace, a daiquiri prepared with a blend of rum made after fermenting for a month in oak barrels where balsamic vinegar is prepared.
There are a plethora of options, and to find what is really right for you the only solution is to ask!
