There are corners of Turin that transport us to other cities: a perfume, a palace or just some object makes us wonder if we are really where we think we are. Le Papille is just one of these corners, just cross the threshold of a semi-anonymous door, and voilà, we are in Paris.
Without signs or windows, as you enter the delightful courtyard you will find a delicate indoor space decorated with tall trees, plants and objects with a bric-a-brac flavor. The interior, on the other hand, was crafted with the feminine touch of its three owners. Suceeding in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere thanks to a careful combination of design objects and shabby chic furnishings. Shop, bistro and gastronomy, in Le Papille you can breathe the informal atmosphere of a house always open, ready to give hospitality at any time of the day.
In the morning you can start with a sweet and savory breakfast, then continue with a buffet lunch, a snack with a wide choice of cakes and coffee, end with an aperitif and a more structured dinner served in the charming upper rooms with lots of covered terrace during the winter season. An unfailing destination for Sunday brunch lovers in a corner of the city dictated by tranquility and bien-être.
In the gastronomic proposal you will find both dishes according to the seasonality of the ingredients, and the traditional Piedmontese cuisine: anchovies in a green bath, meat with a crunchy breadcrumbs fried in butter or, for the most daring palates, an abundant gourmet sandwich with salted cod and Vicenza sauce.
Among the wooden shelves of the store you will be able to buy vintage objects never taken for granted, various spices and other food products packaged by social cooperatives supported by the owners.
So if you are looking for a peu d’air sur la terree, Le Papille awaits you at Cit Turin to accompany all your moments of tranquility and serenity torn from the city.
