Restaurants in Turin
One of Turin's many famous old cafés where you can have a coffee or aperitif in style. Laid out under a vast chandelier, the spread at Caffè San Carlo is as rococo as the florid 1822 interior.
At this enoteca con cucina, share soft chickpea farinata, triangles of airy pesto quiche, crudités, and first-rate salumi.
Take a seat in the design-minded café with a bookstore. In the shadow of a monumental palazzo, taste tiny roasted potatoes; focaccia with artichokes, prosciutto, mortadella, and mozzarella; and a farfalle salad tangy with capers.

Cooler in spirit than the city's traditional cafés.
Order the wild-greens–and-sausage pie at Pizzeria da Cristina, an oasis of Neapolitan warmth and tomato sauce just outside the center.
The café's eponymous drink has been served at this spot since 1763. The historic beverage has three layers: coffee on the bottom, dark chocolate above it, and sweet, frothy milk on top.
Stop by the bunker-like bar for such improbable treats as a wooden board of meaty pancetta, beautiful roasted vegetables, and a fluffy rice, pea, and frittata salad.
