Buy your gifts here, buy yourself a package or two, and then buy an extra package of these chocolates. My favorite turned out to be the cubes wrapped in different foil colors (for different flavors). There is a reason this place is number 1 on Yelp. The chocolates are expensive, but worthwhile. And they will melt easily so avoid them... More

Friendly staff who spoke English well and did their best to explain to me the different varieties of chocolate they offered. Ended up buying a custom picked box of chocolates for my parents and my boyfriends parents. Here's to hoping they enjoy the chocolate!

Great selection of traditional chocolate. Try the cremini and the gianduiotti (invented in Turin) for an authentic experience. I always buy here some gifts to bring to the US (always appreciated!). In summer they also give customers a small cool bag to carry the chocolate on the airplane.

Just before leaving Turin to go home, I went to Guido Gobino. I had been there 2 days earlier and was impressed by the quality and service of the store. it is located in the center of town. The history of the store speaks for itself. I bought a selection of chocolates and it was packed for travel. I will... More

I am a bit of a chocolate nut, so I went to this place seeking out the drinking chocolate of Turin. I feared it might be overrated or a tourist trap, but I was wrong. It was excellent. The chocolate was very thick. When I moved the cup, the "liquid" mass slowly moved. I got extra bitter, and it was... More

Chanced upon this non-descript shop. Being choc lovers, we were drawn by the glass counter with its pretty parade of pralines. Then we spotted them...slabs of chocolate that reminded us of Laderach (Switzerland). Had to try one of those. And we weren't disappointed! We tried both the dark choc and gianduja versions, and found that the dark choc choice was... More

Fantastic is an understatement. Everything about Guido Gobino is great. The employees are really courteous. Even though they see me once or twice a year, they remember me and welcome me back. If I'm with friends, they ask about my family and ask me to send their regards. For me, service is as important as quality of food - hence... More

If you love chocolatte and you stay in Torino, you have to visit this shop. The chocolatte is excellent. I also recommend the cacao powder for somebody who bakes at home. During the last visit I also tasted the ice cream and it was famous!

Looked it up, and decide to skip lunch and have a Hot Chocolate. So worth it. Hate to think how many calories, but all we had was one drink. In 7th Heaven. I would however suggest, that if there are two of you, you could sure, and get same satisfaction [almost] and lot less calories.

Turin has several very fine chocolate place. Gobino sells chocolate and also has a small tea room to taste various hot chocolates. This was overall very good, except that I wished they offered chocolate with less/little sugar. Their chocolate is still the very traditional very sweet chocolate (even the "bitter" one) and tastes are evolving
