Caffè Bodoni

Turin
illy
In a quiet corner of a quiet square, away from the tourist traffic, a clearly local clientele enjoys  Caffè Bodoni which is in every way a typical Italian café. Caffè Bodoni took their name from the street they’re on - Via Giambattista Bodoni - the famous type designer and typographer. 
 
A friendly and chatty Italian crowd stands at the bar, or sits around the open and inviting café.  This is a very unpretentious space that focuses on enjoying great coffee (with a spoonful of whipped cream) and wonderful pastries rather than trying to be too very fashionable or trendy.
 
When we visited, the crowd was a mix of young couples, young families, businessmen and a senior crowd. What united them was they were all well mannered and cultured, and very much a familiar local Torino crowd.

Caffè Bodoni’s masterful espressos and cappuccinos didn’t go unnoticed. They are one among only a handful of cafés in Turin that have been awarded (and not for the first time) the “3 coffee cups” out of 3 by Gambero Rosso.

Caffè Bodoni, Via Giambattista Bodoni, 2, 10123 Turin.
