Hidden under the majestic arcades of Statuto square, the Servetto family’s Enodolceria is an ancient grocery store among the few ones remaining in Turin and has been run by the same family for decades. The window shop calls for gluttony and elegance, the orchestration of the shelves no less enticing than the quality of the products. Colored tin cans of biscuits are duly sorted next to hand-made nougat, fruits in alcohol, crystal bowls of candies and chocolates, liquors and old plaques of long-gone businesses.
When you enter the shop, the opulence of the shelves is only second to the warm and kind welcome of Francesco and Antonella, who together with their son, have been running the shop for many years. Either you decide to wander and get lost in this vortex of tasty temptations, or you decide to ask for a suggestion from them; they’ll be more than happy to advise you and tell you about the story behind the different products. If you are kind you could also get a Giandujotto (the typical Turin’s upturned boat-shaped chocolate) as a free sample!
Therefore Enodolceria is the perfect stop if you want to indulge in a sweet break in a place where time has kind of stopped, away from globalised brands and cheap service. With elegant packaging and a vast assortment it is also the perfect shop to bring back home the sweetest souvenir from your trip to Turin.
