Turino is recognized as the home of the slow food movement and is the home of the original Eataly retail store. There was no way that we were going to be staying in Turino that evening and would miss the opportunity to visit the original Eataly.

Now we have been to Eataly in Chicago and have been more than a little disappointed with the selection of food products (mainly the lack of freshness) and the overly consumerism we felt when we would visit it.

Well this store has a completely different vibe and is definitely worth stopping in to visit. We had lunch at one of the “food stand” restaurants and it was absolutely fabulous. Then seeing all of the fresh food and the prepared foods such as the Focaccia, I was ready to have a second lunch!

Worth the visit and leave yourself at least an hour for the visit.
