Family Owned & Operated Since 2000
Welcome to Caffe Torino, located in Oro Valley, Arizona. When it opened in the year 2000, there weren’t too many options for restaurants in the area and it quickly became a favorite spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner.This family owned and operated Northern Italian restaurant went through some remodeling in August 2009 which created a bigger space with a cozy eclectic look.
Authentic Northern Italian Cuisine
When Daniela Borella and her family moved from Italy to Tucson in the late ‘80s they soon realized that there were no authentic Italian restaurants in the area. With little experience or background in the restaurant business but lots of passion for making good food, they decided to open a small Italian café that served simple Italian cuisine in a family atmosphere. Daniela’s mother, Edy was the original chef and she was cooking the food that she served to her family for many years. She is now retired but still a big part of the operation of the restaurant with her input and inspiration. Daniela’s father, Italo is also involved in the operation of the restaurant providing the fresh made pasta and running daily errands.Daniela is now the executive chef and she continues cooking her mother’s food with the same passion. The recipes have been in the family for many years and the making of fresh pasta has been a tradition that goes back to many generations.
