My friend found the restaurant on Trip Advisor and said the reviews were very good. This, unfortunately, was not the case with us. Although the staff was most pleasant and the atmosphere good for families, the food was not good. The so called cesear salad was drowning in grated parmesan cheese and the tomato sauce which accompanied my mahi mahi fish was way too thick and masked the taste of the fish. Another miss was the chicken parmesan which was also overpowered by the sauce and cheese on top. At the end oif the meal the last disappointment was the coffee which resembled brown water. The wait staff was nice enough to substitue it for a cappucino but this , too, was weak and had much too much milk in it. What we thought would be a great "home cooked" Italian meal turned out to be not the case.

Can't say enough good things about this place.The food is well made and fresh tasting as well.His sweet selections are to die for....you put weight on just by looking at them.
The way the owner greets his guests and the laughter coming from the back room, makes you feel like you'r part of a happy family. And last but not least is his breakfast....
the very best deal in town....you get the same as everbody else (scrambled eggs,bacon,
and freshly baked bread, but at 5 bucks,(coffee included) it can't be beat.
Cafe Torino has become a regular breakfast/dinner out for the both of us.

I had the chicken with feta cheese and mushrooms in a cream sauce for lunch. The portion was not extremely large, but it was good for lunch. This is a step up in quality from most restaurants. The guy at the counter is quite amusing and re
Ages well with the customers.

The only thing wrong with Cafe Torino is that sometimes on a weekend we can't get a table! (There are only about 10 tables.) The atmosphere is simple, and maybe a bit spare; it is a cafe, after all, which should feel casual, and it does. The menu is carefully tailored to suit the kitchen's strengths, and the food is well-prepared and very tasty. Some of the best Northern-style Italian you will find in the area, and of a quality and freshness suited to a much more expensive restaurant. The servers are friendly and attentive. This is a great little place.
