Torre Cremeria Bar

Sicily has never been so close to Turin

Test it out, ask a Sicilian for advice on where to eat granita in Turin. Rest assured that there will only be one answer: Torre Cremeria Bar. Here, we essentially come for that small slice of Sicily, now famous throughout the Piedmontese capital.

The setting is Corso Regio Parco, a long, tree-lined avenue of San Pietrini where the industrial Turin mixes liberties past with present redevelopment. Since 1972, located at number 28, Mr. Gioacchino Torre, 70, has cheered up the inhabitants of the capital of Savoy with the sweetness of his slushes. Previously working in the Guardia di Finanza, he always had a dream to open a bar. Once he reached Turin, through passion and dedication he managed to achieve becoming one of the points of reference when discussing gourmet.

Previously mentioned, granita is the spearhead of this menu, made according to the strictest Sicilian tradition. Excellent at any time of the day. A breakfast of almond granita, soft and fresh brioche (the original one, with the tuppo) and whipped cream is the perfect charge to face the day or a light snack to relax. Close your eyes and imagine that you are in the magnificent land of Sicilia.

The tastes vary according to seasonality and the ingredients are all of impeccable quality. For example, now that autumn has just arrived you can enjoy a cocoa granita, during summer or spring. On the menu there are also more exotic names from maracuja to prickly pear without obviously neglecting the classic evergreen tradition: almond, pistachio, coffee, chocolate, lemon, and orange. The unquestioned queen of Torre serves a range of Sicilian (and not) sweet and savory specialties that will accompany you throughout the day, from a quick breakfast, lunch or an aperitif.

Do not miss the chance to enjoy the taste of the best Sicilian tradition. Remember, whether it’s winter or summer, eating Torre’s granita is always an unforgettable experience!

We can't. That's why every week we share the best experiences turin has to offer.
