Untangling the jungle of bars in San Salvario is never easy. The offer is endless and often we end up sitting at a table hoping to have ended up in the right place. In this intricate forest, the Lanificio San Salvatore represents certainty. Excellent cocktails, quality food, good music and for the regulars of waking up late, a rich Sunday brunch.
Scratched wooden tables, multicolored straw chairs, and wool threads are suspended above your head, intertwining from one wall to the other. Here at Lanificio, which is located in a previous old wool shop, the eye wonders looking for a plot, a color or a detail of an eccentric decor that attracts and intrigues anyone approaching the windows. Above all, to win over Lanificio’s customers is the famous Sunday brunch, an unmissable event for lovers of this overseas tradition.
The scent of cakes and bread, all homemade, welcome you to the rich buffet of sweet delicacies, where you can eat a sweet or a savory dish. The salty foods are all mouth watering, with some must tries including the Club sandwich, croque monsieur and scrambled eggs up to the stewed beef. But the Lanificio is also one of the many souls that enliven San Salvario, from aperitif until late in the evening.
Filippo, the barman, is a great vermouth expert and takes care of every detail of the cocktails with passion and dedication which accompany an excellent aperitif of quality and substance. You can access the large buffet with fresh products, fresh out of the kitchen or order one of the many tapas available à la carte. Also, for a simple and relaxed dinner, you can enjoy a platter of cold cuts and cheeses with an available selection of excellent wine from the cellar.
Remember that two Thursdays a month the Lanificio feeds the Turin night with music by emerging local songwriters. An excellent opportunity to eat and drink well, discovering something new.
