We stopped in for a meal on valentine's day and coming from NY we were used to a good Italian meal. We were very happy that the meal was better the good. As my companion said her mother must be working in the kitchen as the pasta was as good as the pasta her mother made at home. You can not have a higher praise from a full blooded Italian who is a very particular person about her food.
The staff was very efficient and the setting was very pleasant.
Well worth the trip and will be worth a return visit.

Caffe Torino is a cozy spot in a Tucson suburb. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are wonderful, but when the lights are low in the evening the meals are fabulous and the prices are fair. There is a full bar, and the owner is usually on site at dinner time. Decor is comfortable and homelike, especially in the main dining room. The patio is delightful for warm evenings. This is our favorite spot!

Recently had dinner at Cafe Torino and thought the food was fabulous. The lasanga was some of the best I have had outside of Italy! The complimentary foccia was also very good. My husband had shrimp in a pink sauce and loved it. The whole restaurant smelled wonderful. Will definitely be going back soon!

This was our 3rd visit in 3 years. #1:we loved it. #2 one good dish, one burnt eggplant. #3 will be the last. Had a 6:45 Fri night reservation. Seated promptly. Waiter busy with another table, dropped menus and ran. Came back and took wine and appetizer order. Wine came after @10minutes. He then told us the specials. Shucks! If we'd known we would have chosen another appetizer. 15 minutes for the bruschetta to arrive - it was fine, tho mozzarella squares were small and tasteless. 30 min later he told us our entrees were on their way. 30 min after that we flagged him down and he brought the entrees. No apology. Never offered more wine, nobody poured more water. Osso bucco was tasty. Lasagna so overcooked couldn't distinguish the pasta from the general mush. Risotto with scallops: we suspect the scallops were punched out of a hunk of halibut. Butter citrus sauce bitter and acidic. No one asked how our meals were, busboy took plates (scallops uneaten) without inquiry.
I've read the positive reviews, but won't risk return visit.
