Paid 50€ for 2 x Pasta and 2 beers, 1L water, and grisini. Pasta was cold and the quality not good compared to the food we had at other places during our 4-day visit in Turin.

This is a very old Cafe. Typical Italian Style over 190 years. Exactly since 1822. The decoration is very rich. Here one can have any type of snacks or sweets with a drink or coffee which they would desire. A place not to miss if...More

What an elegant place!. The décor inside is beautiful, very old fashioned with fantastic mirrors and a big chandelier in the centre. We visited on a crisp, Sunday morning, before it got crowded. I had to try a Bicerin. It was lovely and rich, but...More
