Over-the-top cuisine in a simple setting

One of the great surprises of Warrenton, this cafe serves a menu with a distinctly Mediterranean flavor and a friendly atmosphere. The pastries and deserts are to die for. The entrees are amazingly sophisticated, nuanced and incredibly value-priced. Try the cappuccino!

I had the best tomato soup today with a side greek salad. Delicious! Love their home made pastries! The owners are always hugging everyone and like to make everyone feel at home.

In the midst of the Virginia Garden Club tour we found ourselves in Warrenton around 1:30 and hungry. On Route 17 in Warrenton, By luck The Cafe Torino popped up instead of some fast food place. We decided to give the small 7 or 8 table cafe a try. As we entered a little boy and his grandmother who were... More

Delicious food! Wine! The best lunch in town~! It's all good here, you can't go wrong with anything you could choose for lunch or dinner. And the cakes....oh my goodness! The strawberry shortcake is a staple for my birthday dinner year after year, I bet my family has gotten my birthday cake here for 10 years! As well as cakes... More

Cafe Torino is a small, little frills restaurant offering some of the best Italian food in the Northern Piedmont of Virginia. It has a generous collection of chicken, seafood and veal dishes that are well-prepared, tender and perfectly-seasoned for less than $20 per entree. The veal dishes are particularly enjoyable. Forget your knife, you can cut the meat or fish... More

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
