We were recommended to come here by a local. It is grand but it was empty & we soon found out why- the owner must have abandoned it. Why? Terrible service & very average food/coffee. Shame. But all businesses go through this. Hopefully they will...have the sense to sell & get out.More

Touristy? Sure. Pricey? Of course. But a beautiful place to eat lunch overlooking the Piazza. This was the fay after my son was released from hospital after a 10 day stay. This walk around the beautiful square on such a lovely day helped us feel...normal, almost like tourists. We were lucky to be able to eat out as this was 2 days before Total Lockdown Covid-19. Turin, we will meet again under better circumstances!More

Staff impolite, forgetful and slow, needed to ask 2 or 3 times something we wanted.. No smiles/please/thank you /you're welcome. We left without our coffees after waiting for them for 30minutes... Only good thing was the central location.

Went into Piazza San Carlo and we felt attracted for the tables at the corner of the Piazza. Great spot. After more than 20 minutes someone finally throw out menus. Other 15 we finally made our order...the same with the table behind us. Terrible terrible...service. Now what had saved the visit, was the food. We order gnocci with the best pomodoro sauce i ever tried in years, as well the lasagna. Probably there are more and best restaurants in the area. So if you have time to do a research will be great. But if you have time, for the food and the viewing spot it may worth itMore

You should have visited once you are in Torino. Nice, old bar with a very nice food selection and friendly staff. Easy to find in the middle of the city and nice outdoor seating. Great for the summer. While we were visiting, a pidgeon was...flying in the restaurant, but it was respecting the location and did not drop anything. The staff tried to redirect him out, the pidgeon was smarter and stayedMore

Dinner was excellent. Beer was crisp and fresh tasting. Service was friendly and patient. I had a pizza with spicy sausage. It was a generous serving and piping hot. On another note, I realized 2 days after I ate there that I left my credit...card there. I went back and they had it at the register. Thanks for your honesty and assistance!More

Caffe San Carlo is located in the corner of Piazza San Carlo. It is a busy place and so the service seems distracted as others have said and they act like you should know how everything works, BUT you need to experience the interior of...this place. The chandeliers, the gold gilding, the opulence! A restaurant harking back to another time and still in existence today over 125 years later! We enjoyed this restaurant during what we would call "happy hour" - and maybe in Italy it is called "Spritz Hour". Caffe San Carlo has a 10 euro special until 18:30. Order a spritz for 10 euros and get all the little delicacies that are found in the center of the restaurant. These little delicacies include wafers with caviar, fresh fruit on little wafers, smoked fish and even vegetarian options. Go back several times! I love finger food delicacies so it fed my soul!More

They did not take my order right coz he was too arrogant to listen and attitude of the 2 waiter are amazingly ignorant and arrogant, that even a glitch of a smile is given and yet they are in hospitality industry. What is wrong with...being friendly. Is it because they feel so high class by working in fancy place? Or just attitude problem in general...More

I’ve been to 10 different countries and ordered a whole lot of things in coffees/restaurants!! Never ever ever did I get such a bad service like in here. First I went inside to order some local cakes and the woman in charge of handling the...cash took my request, when I seated down two more came and I told them also that I wanted a expresso, 2 tables next to me got served in 10 minutes, maybe less than that!! 20 minutes and after going inside demanding what I ordered to the same woman and a men (don’t know if he was the boss) I left without paying 5 small pastries 10 minutes later!!More
