We at Alpi Empanadas


On March 16th 2015 an idea was born: take the city of Turin by storm empanada after empanada.


It all began during a family reunion in the historic location of the Brek restaurant in Piazza Carlo Felice, in Turin’s city center, it is there that the foundations of an idea are laid by Gris, Daniel and Ger, Argentine by birth but Turinese by adoption since 1993, for the creation of a family business that can combine the socially useful and the encounter between cultures, with an Argentine artisan gastronomy dedicated to Empanadas of the finest quality.


For over four years, successes and frustrations have followed one another, but finally, in July 2019, the first Alpi Empanadas opened its doors in Corso Peschiera 198b.


Alpi Empanadas wants to be not only a family business, Alpi Empanadas aims, given the experience of the family members, to be a vehicle to play in the near future a role that can be defined as socially useful starting from the use of supplied raw materials from small local realities as gratitude to a territory that has been able to adopt and help a family with dreams and hopes. It also aims to be a meeting point between two cultures united for more than a hundred years, an Argentine experience seasoned with high-quality Piedmontese ingredients, all in an environment that takes you back to the origins.


Alpi Empanadas opened its doors with full gratitude towards a city that was able to welcome a teacher, an engineer and a young man full of hope who came from a small village on the western outskirts of Buenos Aires and that are now conquering the city and northern Italy empanada after empanada.


Welcome to Alpi Empanadas and thank you for being here with us while we write this new chapter of our life,
