The Best Restaurant Ever!

Cafe Torino is wonderful! I ordered one of the daily specials for lunch - penne with zucchini, chicken and rosemary - and it was delicious to the last bite. My dining companion had the Caesar salad with chicken. Serving size for both dishes was perfect for lunch and the ingredients were all... read more

The bakery goods are lovely: recently we had an absolutely fabulous birthday cake from Torino. Now we were here to try lunch. The owner let me sample one of the day's featured soups -- cream of asparagus. I found it too creamy and not enough asparagus, so instead I ordered the grilled chicken with avocado on focaccia and was very... More

That's like shooting fish in a barrel! Stopped in for lunch and was delighted by the delicious pasta and tasty pastries. I was hoping for some employee drama but, alas, not today. Exceeded all expectations.

Cafe Torino is worth the trip to for a nice dinner or to have them to make you one of their outstanding desserts. Being Italian and someone who has made many trips to Italy…the food and cakes (& all deserts) are fantastic! All prepared fresh right there in the traditional northern Italian manor. Such love is put into all the... More

Perhaps we hit a rough day to try out this small Italian restaurant. I was looking forward to a fresh, true Italian meal. The food was very good, but the sideshow of one older employee's tantrum was really off putting. This employee made quite the scene as the chef, other employees and even customers tried to quiet her. We may... More

I recently ate at Cafe Torino and was pleasantly surprised and I wondered what had taken me so long to dine here. The food was delicious! Portion size was fulfilling. Atmosphere is very laid back and relaxing. Only complaint is it is loud.

The waitress was very attentive and even split an adult entree three ways on 3 plates each with a nice portion of pasta that more than... More

it's basic italian food. nothing special but reliably decent. family owned and operated. could be nicer atmosphere, and i'd prefer a little less talking from the staff. but all in all not a bad meal.

This is a great find for an excellent Italian meal in our area with a little comic relief sprinkled on top! The focaccia has got to be THE best ever, Andrea's soup is always a winner and Andrea himself is a great person…so much fun to have a great breakfast, lunch or on thurs. fri. sat. dinner -- make reservations!

Something Different to eat. The food is not fast food, so it gives a different option in Warrenton. Service is average to very good.
