Italian "Aperitivo" in an storical place PLATTI

Platti

This place is an icon in Turin, where you can have the real "aperitivo". In Italy the "aperitivo" is have a glass of wine with some snacks before dinner, the Italians enjoy a couple hours generally between 7-9 pm while waiting for the 9 pm meal.

The food for an aperitivo is not supposed to replace your dinner, seeing an aperitivo buffet, it can be very tempting especially if you're hungry or on a budget to load up a couple of places ant tuck in as if you're at an early dinner.

Platti is a historical place opened in 1870, it is member of the association of the historical places in Italy, this historic location where it still is today: under the arcades of Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, at the heart of Turin, then capital city of a newly unified Italy.

This is a noble cafe' one of the cores of the city's social and cultural life for almost 150 years, these marvelous rooms enclose a unique tradition of taste and genuineness, in addition to bearing witness to extraordinary stories and lives.

If you have a exquisite taste you must go to Platti.

Platti offer a great selection of regional wines It is also an extraordinary "pasticeria" (desserts)  where you can find the traditional chocolate and typical candies from Turin. It is a paradise for sweets lovers. I need to go back and get my chocolate with hazelnuts.
