Cafés - Turin

Fiorio

Via Po 8, Turin

Opened in 1780, the Fiorio quickly became the major meeting place on the social circuit for aristocrats and socialites with too much time on their hands and too many thoughts on their minds. Thus nicknamed, “the ponytail café” after its historical clientele, it was here the cities authorities would head to know the mood of the people in times of trouble and disharmony. Today the Fioro offers no such civic importance, but does provide a delicious lunch buffet, home made ice-cream, and traditional coffee, enjoyed all the more when consumed amongst the sumptuous architecture and interiors that this Café is celebrated for.
