A loud whirring sound emerges from the kitchen at Villa Somis, which is a high-end Italian restaurant in the hills overlooking Turin. Perhaps it's a coffee machine, or a prosciutto slicer. But when chef Q.1 Antonio Chiodi Latini comes out, he's holding two glasses of light green vegetable extract, to wash down our vegan biscotti.



His old customers were fond of how he used to cook, and appreciated his fish soup and lovely meat. But Latini, who opened for business on the top floor of the elegant villa this summer, having turned vegan himself three years ago for health reasons also realises that people want to try new things, and spend an evening Q.2 eating food that makes them feel good with their own body and soul.



There are now more than 30 restaurants and shops they can visit which serve vegan and vegetarian food, which for a city this size, is possibly the highest number in Italy, and the authorities are keen to highlight this aspect of their city.



Q.3 There is enough room here for all tastes because Turin has always been at the forefront of things,' says Claudio Viano, who opened the city's first vegetarian restaurant, Mezzaluna, with his partner Daniele 20 years ago. Turin and maybe Milan are now the best places in Italy to visit for vegan food, and it is so popular that restaurants offer Q.4 really exciting and innovative dishes.



Elsewhere, it's easy to steer clear of Q.4 lazy vegan fallbacks tofu and falafel, and try creative adaptations of Italian classics instead. The garlicky mushroom lasagne at studenty cafe Il Gusto di Carmilla works without its usual heavy white sauce. Even dairy-free pistachio gelato, made with rice milk at an ice-cream shop called Mondello, is surprisingly moreish.



Q.5 Can you really enjoy a fully vegan pizza, without having to skimp on cheese and pepperoni? Well, sort of. What's more, Q.6 celebrities are getting in on the act, and vegetarian restaurants are becoming cool places to visit and be seen in.



But now in almost every bar there are Q.6 soya milk cappuccinos and macchiatos. And sometimes even vegan pastries, although vegan cheese remains unappetising wherever you are in the world. Not only do the vegetarians of Turin have the backing of the mayor, they also have Italian know-how. And that combination might just be enough to see the controversial vegetarian city project succeed.

The Tribune


  • A The pioneers of this movement insist they are not trying to clash with the city's meat producers and agricultural associations, who in May organised a barbecue in protest against falling sales and health scares using the hashtag 'pork chops to the rescue'. Instead, they want to emphasise the environmental benefits of turning vegetarian. But how good does it taste?
  • B So, now Turin is famous for vegetarianism, along with cars, football, and the winter olympics. Earlier this year, the new mayor Chiara Appendino announced plans to turn it into Italy's first 'vegetarian city', causing traditional butchers to express their horror at the proposals, which include introducing a weekly meat-free day, and teaching schoolchildren about animal welfare and ecology. The city has gone further and created a vegetarian tour of the city for tourists, and maps of the route are freely available.
  • C The city has a rich culture and history, and is known for its numerous art galleries, restaurants, churches, palaces, opera houses, libraries, museums and other venues. Turin is well known for its renaissance, baroque, rococo, neo-classical, and art nouveau architecture.
  • D Vegetarian visitors wandering the streets of the northern Italian city won't take long to stumble across one of the growing number of new vegetarian delis and cafes. Despite the reputation of the Piedmont region for hearty Alpine fare, where one of the most famous local dishes is bollito misto, which is a stew made from boiled veal, beef and chicken, the choice on offer is impressive.
  • E Radiohead singer Thom Yorke is a regular in Coox, which is one of the newest vegan places to open in Piazza Vittorio Veneto, where young people gather each evening for drinks and snacks. This is now becoming a trend because a few years ago, you couldn't get a breakfast as a vegan.
  • F At L'Articiocc, a cafe in central Turin specialising in meat-free Ligurian food, a set menu includes gnocchi tossed in a delicious red pesto made with ground nuts instead of parmesan, a courgette and quinoa bake and a vegetable focaccia.
  • G Antonio is 56, and until three years ago was known in certain local circles for his unusual and elaborately presented dishes, such as seafood pasta with edible flowers or perfect cylinders of raw beef. The menu at his new pop-up venture, Chiodi Latini New Food, is no less fancy, but completely free of all animal products.
