Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This spot is really beautiful to look at and to sit in. It has all of the features you hope to find in an historical cafe in Turin. Many reviews here have noted the high price of drinks. I will not comment on this because...I understand that to maintain an old cafe in such good condition must come at a price and it has very limited seating so the capacity to make money is reduced. I would like to comment about the staff, however. They are strangely not interested in making your visit a happy one. I am wondering why they keep the business. Or maybe it is just tourists that irritate them. Either way, it was a pity.More

A campari spritz was 12.5 euro and when i questioned this upon receiving a large bill i was told 'its because you were on a table'. The receipt said I was charged for a cocktail. Don't trust these snakes

It's sad to see a historical place being run this way. 6€ for 2 short coffees, and 8€ for 2 tramezzini with little filling. Indifferent staff.

Exceptional Bicerin, if you have not tried one yet, I highly recommend you do. The version at Caffee Mulassano was my favorite, a dollop of real fresh thick cream on top, not overly sweet, perfection. The tiny cookies here are delicious as well. There is...an interesting clock on the wall behind the counter (top left). The pointer is controlled electrically by a mechanism that is activated by a button at checkout. The clock can determine who should pay the bill among a group of friends. Ask about it if your interested in using it. This is not a tourist trap, a high flow of locals flowed in and out of this small gorgeous coffee shop.More

A tiny jewel of a place that was simply enchanting. We were lucky to get a table indoor on both of our visits, (too cold for the tables outside in the arcade). Once seated you can marvel at the beautiful decor, (see photo), and enjoy...a very well made drink, while nibbling on some tasty treats. These are gourmet stuff, if you compare them to the offerings in one of Turin’s other historic cafes. Judging by the amount of interest from the constant ebb and flow of locals, their “tramezzini” are incredibly popular I would advise sampling drinks made using Mulassano’s unique Vermouth. Really very impressive and much more subtle and nuanced than most of the commercially available varieties. Service is prompt and efficient and all under the watchful eye of the rather stern looking lady who sits behind the register. An absolute “mustn’t miss” in our opinion.More

I went to this historic café in Turin city centre yesterday to take a hot chocolate with whipped cream. It was not as good as I expected considering the high reputation of this place. There are better chocolates and there is also better cream in...the city. Though the café is very elegant, it is very small indeed and finding where to sit is not so easy. It is quite expensive, like most “ancient” cafés, but personally I would recommend tourists to ask for a hot chocolate in a different place.More

I arrived Monday early morning in Turin for my day trip and this place was one of the few open cafes in the entire city and I'm so glad that it boost my morale to continue searching for places in a city that wakes up...late.... It looks like an old establishment and is just outside the beautiful Gallleria that Cinema Romano is. Staff was extremely friendly, smiling and welcoming and professional too. I ordered a coffee with liqueur and a panino with salmon all properly presented and well served. The space itself is beautiful and inspiring for morning coffee talks.More

As a foreword, I am a native, so it's my full interest to highlight the wonders of Turin. This caffè is for sure among them. It is an Art Nouveau little jewel, with its cold water fountain, the wood- lined walls, the golden ceiling. Here...the "tramezzino" was conceived and branded. BUT.... Unfortunately, the owner is one of the most unpleasant lady in Turin. If you go in, you will be advised by her that "the first visit is free of charge, but if you want a second one you must eat or drink". Leaving apart the fact that any polite visitor does it without being solicited, it is absolutely better to lose some euros instead of pushing someone to write a review like this one. We had been there many times (in Turin it's a must) and we were outside the caffè explaining to a young couple seating at one of the two coffee table why this location was so important (a commercial free of charge) when a Swiss couple stopped and listened to our explaination. After having known the peculiarities of the place, we all entered it and were welcomed by the lady in such a way. We all ordered food and drink (22 euros 2 prosecco and 2 tramezzini): nobody cared if the swiss couple can or can not understand the poor information given because nobody speaks English and the waiters are like the owner: unpolite. So, come and give a look to the place, but stay outside (the caffè consists of one room only and you can see everything), then go to Baratti & Milano, just two steps far and historical as well.More

I stopped at this bar/coffee shop in my last trip to Turin. I ordered a cappucino and a croissant and they asked me if I wanted to sit. I knew it was going to be more expensive, but i was tired and I agreed. They...brought me a coffee that wasn't that good, compare with the one I drunk at a bar the same morning for 70p in San Mauro Torinese. The croissant was good tho. When I asked for the bill, they charged me 7,00 euros. In my opinion it was expensive for what i got. I paid similar prices in Florence in a coffee shop but coffee was far superior and was just in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo! Kinda disappointed I stopped by...never againMore

Caffe Mulassano came up in every guide and review that I read on Turin so it was natural that, fresh off the plane, it was our first port of call. Reg rettably, we could not sit inside but a table in the portico, watching the...world go by seemed fine. However, the waiter was off hand, the drinks were too thin (prosecco) or weak (Aperol Sprizt) and the beggars who wandered by in search of hangouts were too persistent and not asked to leave by staff (who did see them). The aperitivo were perfectly nice but I felt it was trading on its reputation, expecting customers rather than deserving them.More

This is the place to get trammezini (small sandwiches in every assortment imaginable). The place is tiny but it is historic and takes you back in time. Elegant staff serve wine, espressos and other delicious dishes. Look this place up on Trip Advisor and check...out the architecture, the tin ceiling and the wonderful antique bar.More

This cafe is one of the oldest in Torino and you cannot miss it! We stopped one night for an appetitivo and spoke with the owner for ages about his business and the city. Their hospitality is one of a kind and the cafe itself...is beautiful. I would highly recommend visiting this cafe whether you need a quick espresso or want to sit down for one their beautiful traditional Italian hot chocolates. Absolute perfection!

The most unfriendly waiter I've ever encountered "welcomed" me when I entered today. Lucky for me, I ate inside where a young woman, who was quite pleasant, waited on me. I had two tramezzini (one with boiled egg and asparagus and the other with shrimp...and heart-of-palm). Both very nice, especially the latter. I also ordered my usual Aperol spritz. With that came some peanuts, olives, and four small "rolls", two with a pizza-like tomato sauce and two with grilled zucchini. The zucchini were atop some type of lovely mayonnaise-like mixture. While in Turin, I'm trying to visit as many of the historic caffes as I can. I'm sure the wait staff must get fed up with the constant stream of sometimes-demanding customers. I speak Italian (enough to get by) and that may help. I'm rating this caffe "4" for value, because it gets points for being what it is--a beautiful old caffe.More
