Have eaten here many times for lunch and enjoyed it. I keep going back to order my favorite there, the Salmon Piccata! Delicious salmon with lemon and capers, comes with a side salad and piece of focaccia bread...can't get enough of it. The owners are super friendly, too! Will keep going back.

I always thought that Cafe Torino was a breakfast pastry and light lunch sort of place, but boy did I miss the best part! I had dinner there, and I've already been back multiple times. I eat out at nice restaurants regularly, and I was surprised to find out that I've been missing the best food in Warrenton, VA. And... More

Excellent Italian food and dessert. The chef is definitely entertaining. This is the tastiest food in town and the best value of all the restaurants. It's a small bistro setting but definitely worth the wait.

Can't say enough good things about this family run eatery. Cafe/pastry shop by day, fine Italian cuisine on certain nights of the week. There's only a few tables so I'd recommend reservations. The chef/owner makes the rounds to each table - nice, funny guy, and an excellent cook. The prices are reasonable too

We were traveling to the Outer Banks of NC, & we're looking for a place to eat dinner not far off the highway. We were a little wary of a restaurant in a shopping center, but were very pleasantly surprised about the lovely ambience & the delightful food. There was a special with spinach fettuccine, wh I love, but I... More

My wife and I love this restaurant! We discovered it on a house hunting trip to the area. We have recently moved to the area and Cafe Torino & Bakery is our go to Italian place. It is a small restaurant located in a small shopping mall, and the decor is charming but not fancy. The food is absolutely fantastic.... More

Friendly, quaint bistro-- I had a portabello and brie sandwich on homemade bread and it was something amazing! Side salad was a bit overdressed but the meal was enjoyable. Homemade pastas are great, too.

Fabulous everything here...pastas, desserts, pastries, sandwiches, soups, breakfast. Order your Decorated Christmas cookies from Andrea, they are gorgeous!
