Description: First opened in 1915, Torinese is an original Art Nouveau bar, with an interior adorned by works of renowned Triestine cabinetmaker Debelli, as well as other known designers and a bright illuminated chandelier hanging overhead. Its place in Trieste's history was made official in 1999, when it entered the list of historic Italian bars. In 2014, the timeless ambiance was given a much needed shot in the arm with a new youthful management team, whose main focus is on mixing up perhaps the best cocktails in the city. You can also drop by during the day for fresh pastries or a light lunch.

Reviewed 29 September 2013

loved it here too, owner was very jolly and gave us a selection of sandwiches with my order of local wine. Window seat good for people watching again. It's also a shop where you can buy local coffee.

“One of the best Cafés in Trieste”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Upon entering the bar at Caffè Torinese, it feels like it has drawn back the clock to 1915. The interior is original from that time. At one time, the café was a chocolate shop to manufacture in the same house. Today, you get amazing cocktails, wines and espresso is world class. The place is a must if you visit Trieste is very beautiful city on the Adriatic Sea. You should also know that Trieste is coffee's hometown in Europe. It was in this city that modern coffee was created. And what I know is the only place in Trieste, serving their own Caffe America

You must Aves see the range of wines, olive oil, grappa and olka chocolate varieties that are available in the bar

A fantastic nice place in the middle of center of Trieste
