language & culture
What languages are spoken in Piemonte?

The main language is Italian or Piemontese. French and German are not very common here. Some Italians speak a little English.

What about coffee?

Types of coffee

  • Cafè (espresso)
  • Doppio Cafè (double espresso); sometimes also called Lungo
  • Cappuccino (espresso with whipped milk)
  • Americano (espresso with a jug of hot water for dilution)

Coffee habits

  • At breakfast italians drink a cappuccino, macchiato, americano or cafè (espresso). People drink this because they want a “filling” drink next to their croissant or brioche.
  • After 11:00 am italians usually drink a cafè whilst standing at a bar.
  • After dinner italians have a cafè to help digestion.
Italian dinner time?

In Italy the time to have dinner is different from what most people in the north are used to. The further south you go, the later dinner is usually served.

When you enter a restaurant at six o’clock you will probably find it empty. In some cases, the kitchen will still be closed for the dinner service. This is because at six it is aperitivo time.

Italians usually have dinner between eight and ten o’clock.
