Delicious whipped-cream! Some locals told me that I couldn't miss this pastry-shop's renown whipped-cream. I had it on top of a hot chocolate: it was very good indeed!

Ghigo is one if those places Turin people are fond of. They are used to go to and don't even question the quality of the food, of the service or the price. Meringue is a delusion. The ice-cream is good, but nothing special. And so...More

Ghigo was established in 1870 and it was known as a dairy until the 1950's. In fact if you ask for a hot chocolate with whipped cream, the "cream" is taken from a "white drum" of ca. 10 litres, if not more. A lovely old...More

Only around 10 flavours but great taste and good composition. If you like pistache, you really taste the nuts! Small place.

Description
Ghigo confectioner’s shop was established in 1870 and it was known as a dairy until the 1950s. At the time “marghe” (milkmen) used to deliver milk home in tanks drawn by horses and then pour it into typical white drums. At the back of the shop “tomini” and other kinds of fresh cheese were made and then sold directly to customers. The recipes of Ghigo products were jealously handed down from generation to generation and they are still used to make croissants and other unique products.
