NileGuide Expert tip:
Try their 'Gianduiotto con crema e panna'.
Established in 1780 and known as 'the ponytail café' for its patronage by aristocrats, officials and politicians of the time. Some say it was here that Italy's political future was plotted by Cavour and Garibaldi, this may be so, for it certainly was a place where people met to discuss their thoughts and air their opinions. Today the interior still maintains an elegance from a byegone era with its sumptuous interior and Caffè Fiorio serves a varety of rich fare including traditional coffees, a delicious lunch buffet (around€15) and some of Turin's best homemade gelato (cones from €1.50) made to a secret recipe. Don't miss the 'Gianduiotto con crema e panna', their classic gelato.
