For golosoni always looking for gastronomic gems: because there is not only the center of Turin
One of the most populous neighborhoods in the city of Turin, Santa Rita, known above all for its large fruit and vegetable market, reveals authentic gastronomic surprises.
Best veal with tuna sauce
Where to eat it
Trattoria alle Lavagne, Corso Agnelli 56B
A very small restaurant, so small that if you want to have dinner here, the advice is to book. Tasty and comforting trattoria kitchen, classic recipes and some with a nice creative touch prepared with quality products. The vitello tonnato is excellent, a tasty and soft walker, accompanied by its traditional sauce, the tonnata. If you want to give yourself a gift, order it with the Russian salad. Both are delicious.

Gastronomy Gallo dal 1956, corso Sebastopoli 161
For over 50 years in the heart (and not only!) Of Turin's gastronomy, Gallo gastronomy has always proved to live up to its customers' expectations: a selection of the best products of the Italian territory, from cheeses to cured meats, to the best wineries, with more than 1000 labels selected by Fabio Gallo (president of AIS Piemonte). And among the products to put in the wicker shopping basket there are various dishes selected from the vast range of Gallo gastronomy, including veal with tuna sauce. We recommend a taste of anchovies in green, sautéed in Milanese and chicken galantine, perfect proposals for a summer version of the Merino Sinoira.

The dinner with the flakes, Via Spano 16
It offers a curious and delicious twinning between Piedmontese and Sicilian cuisine. Here you will find a Piedmont tasting menu with mixed Piedmontese appetizer, traditional agnolotti, Fassone cut and desserts for € 30 excluding wines.
P.Š. Or excellent Cappelletti in broth from Fassone (autumn / winter season) at the Enoteca La Cantinetta, via Buenos Aires 73. Mark in the diary, open only for lunch. Interesting proposal for takeaway wines.
Where to buy it
Pastificio Peinetti, Via Tripoli 65
Specializing in the production of fresh pasta and gastronomy, the pasta factory is near the church of Santa Rita, which gives its name to the neighborhood. The Pastificio Peinetti over the years has been able to win over customers with orecchiette or cavatelli, but also for agnolotti. The agnolotti di Peinetti are prepared with roast veal, pork and lightly spiced with nutmeg. Usually served with roast sauce or butter and sage.
Fabrizio Racca, Via San Marino 95
We are not just talking about gianduiotti, but a real enchanted world, that of Fabrizio Racca and his sweet magic.
Fabrizio Racca has chosen the Santa Rita neighborhood instead of the city center, but his clientele arrives here, in Via San Marino, in the heart of Santa Rita from all over Turin and beyond. Unique are its desserts Monoporions or those with Bicchiere, the same cost, Euro 4.50 each to taste one of his sweet creations. In the single portions Il Diamantino three chocolates, meringue with red fruits (delicious and light) or Hazelnut, Gianduia and almond brittle. Tiramisù, peach, cocoa and amaretto biscuits in a glass. The game of the glass is really interesting, you buy the sweet, the glass can be brought back to the pastry shop, where it will be reused for other sweets (and discounted) or you can use it at home.
All the desserts of Fabrizio Racca can be ordered on the Fabrizio Racca website and the day after the order will be collected at the Via San Marino 95 store. Payment directly in the store. Highly recommended tasting!
Yummy Gelateria, Corso IV Novembre 110
Classic flavors such as chocolate, cream, fiordilatte or stracciatella, but also some delicious novelties such as the Yummy taste, a fiordilatte base with a dark chocolate coating and a crunchy almond and pistachio chip. Excellent proposal for ice cream cakes. Interesting service at home with Eat in Time (from the website).
Coffee and Pasticciotto Leccese
Reporting for The best Pasticciotto from Santa Rita (and perhaps from the city) paired with Quarta coffee, Elba pastry shop (Corso Orbassano, 96). Also try the Rustici Salentini, super good ones with béchamel, fiordilatte and tomato. In short, from Elba the classic Lecce breakfast, complete with a doc coffee.
