Restaurant, café, convenience store, bookshop and meeting space: these are the Magazzini Oz, an innovative format that unites many realities of the Turin area in a unique space.
At first glance you can not understand what is going on inside this place but the feeling is that whatever it is, it’s beautiful. As soon as one discovers, attends, and tastes, one realizes that they were not mistaken: creativity, taste and charity cross each other in this unprecedented mix at MagazziniOz. That’s right, you got it right, charity. Because the warehouses are born on the initiative of Casa Oz, a non-profit organization that aims to assist disadvantaged children and their families. All the activities carried out here are aimed at financing the association and its projects.
Here nothing is left to chance, starting from the interior: all the spaces are treated in every single detail to create a comfortable environment in which even just looking around you feel good. Cream-colored shades blend with the wood and the iron of the tables, chairs and shelving that house books at will, as well as various types of design objects that can be purchased.
But let’s remember that the cuisine is absolutely not to be overlooked. For a light lunch, the solution is very simple. A lean menu and a daily special that changes from time to time allows for an ideal break without too much effort. In the evening the MagazziniOz kitchen rolls out the red carpet for its customers, offering a selection of gourmet dishes to be discovered: from Tagliolini, Finferli and Shiitake, marinated Albese and Consommè, passing through Bra Sausage on Mais Braille until Braised Dolcetto with Sweet and Sour Cream Potatoes and Shallots. If the presentation and the preparation are excellent, the raw ingredients are of equally high quality, all selected from the territory.
This multi-faceted place is also ideal for a breakfast or a snack. The cafeteria offers sweet and savory snacks, ideal to accompany a short break or an intense study session in the reading rooms.
But it does not end here, you should always keep an eye on the MagazziniOz calendar because workshops, public readings, meetings and events of all kinds are on the agenda. Don’t miss the opportunity to eat well and explore a world of creativity!
