Classic café in Torino's 'living room'. There's seating in the piazza outside, and mirrored and chandeliered dining inside. The town symbol of the bull is emblazoned everywhere here. Using a large, shiny, chrome, four-group La Cimbali at the ornate bar, they pull shots with a medium brown crema with darker flecks. It has a bold aroma and a more potent pungent Lavazza flavor of cloves and mild spices. Served in Lavazza-logo IPA cups. A solid effort. ?0.90.
