This is one of the most elegant cafes in Turin. Though the same decor has been retained since 1903, the cafe is said to be much older. Its popularity among Turin's elite, both past and present, can be attributed to its Baroque interior with gilt friezes, marble and wooden fireplaces, the quiet corner tables, and the impeccable service. Some of the most well-known patrons of past years are Pavese, Einaudi, De Gasperi and Giovanni Agnelli. In the summer, you can sit at the tables outside and enjoy a cake while watching the people of Turin coming and going. Though they may seem to simply be out on a leisurely stroll, the reality is that they are nonchalantly trying to tread on a shiny metal plaque embedded into the floor in front of the cafe. It represents the emblem of both the city and the Caffe Torino-- the bull's testicles.
