06 Mar Gluten Free Italy: Lucky Torino
If you’re lucky enough to be visiting Turin this summer, be sure to visit Lucky Torino. Get caught up in the art, attention to detail and design throughout the cafe complete in a stylistic and elegant way. The ambiance of Lucky Torino is something unique and to me, is a positive step towards modernising the cafe-culture of Italy. Lucky Torino offer a wide range of food and beverages including the Schar gluten free menu! They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with offering a small spread of (not gluten free) sandwiches and snacks for an early evening aperitivo.
Now you can enjoy coffee and croissants too gluten free in Italy!
The entire cafe spans over three levels, with the top level being offered as a conference and work room, the second level as a bar and ground level as a cafe and bar – pictured below.
From March 2015, live jazz music will be introduced on a regular basis! Thursday nights Lucky Torino will play host to live music each week, offering Turin locals a chance to sit back with a spritz in hand, and enjoy the evening.
Gluten free menu
Lucky Torino stock a range of Schar gluten free foods. With the Schar specific frozen range, a pre-made gluten free menu, with a number of options including croissants, lasagna, tortellini, panini, foccacia and more.
There was a point where I just wanted to sit at a cafe in Turin and munch on a gluten free croissant with a coffee by my side, however I really struggled to find a place to do it. Finally, I found Lucky Torino.
Drinks and pricing
Lucky Torino’s pricing is extremely reasonable and everything is of a high quality. Often in Italy, coffee is well priced, however tea is not, yet at Lucky the tea is only 1.50€! This is a big deal to me, because throughout Italy tea is extremely overpriced, around 4€.
Lucky’s daily menu consists of a range of hamburgers, salads, and sandwiches along with french fries and chicken as gluten free options.
The drinks menu is filled with cocktails, wines, and a range of non-alcoholic options too, to keep your night rolling on.
The interior decorating has been carefully thought through with a number of gorgeous artworks surrounding. With Wi-Fi and lovely background music, Lucky Torino is a great place to meet with friends or catch up on some creative work.
