Cafe Torre has been around for a very long time and that's not surprising because it does not disappoint. The ambience is intimate, the food is delicious, the wine choices are excellent, the service is attentive and friendly but never intrusive. The pate appetizer is always wildly generous.
Cafe Torre is remarkably quiet in a world where restaurants seem to outdo each other on noise so it's a great place to go with a friend, a partner, a date, anyone you actually want to talk to!
We've eaten there for special occasions and occasionally just because we felt like it. It's the kind of place you'd probably never find unless you lived around here and amen.
I was invited by good friends to join them at this place, one of their favorites in Cupertino. We shared a wonderful Caear salad and a plate of Sautéed Prawns, tomatoes, olives, Feta cheese, followed by Noni's spaghetti traditional three meat sauce-- "A family favorite" for four generations, Pasta Amatriciana and the daily special, Risotto Milanese (with Saffron) - all very tasty and cooked to perfection. I recommend this restaurant and will certainly return
Excellent dinner. Risotto with sea scallops and caviar was out of this world, we will be back very soon.
We very much enjoyed this Wine Bar and Cafe. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable.
The food, at Cafe Torre, is just like eating in one of Italy's top restaurants. We started with the Calamari Fritte, cooked very nicely (crispy and not "chewy") and the Beet Carpaccio, well seasoned and delicious. The mixed Green and Caesar salads were very good. Noni Spaghetti, very meaty and with a great sauce, Linguine Clams, light sauce and delicious, Seafood Pasta, cooked to perfection, Carbonara Pasta, creamy and smooth and the Lasagna equally flavorful. The home made Tiramisu and Cheesecake would both rival any that we had in Italy.
The Mushroom Risotto was the one dish that we did not care for. We had ordered this in the past and both times, the risotto was under-cooked and salty.
Overall though, the food was excellent.
Wonderful pastas.......and great service. Mila is exceptional!
Had a wonderful business lunch here. Food was phenomenal and the client was very happy. We were able to easily conduct our business conversation as well. Thanks so much!
We had a great lunch, food was exceptional and service was great
Never disappoints! Knowledge staff; solid, well-prepared food
Great service, fantastic local wine list, outstanding food!
We love cafe torre. We have been coming here for years with our kids and now that they are gone, just the two of us. The food is always superb, we love the staff and I look forward to the weekend when I can just relax with a good glass of wine, the delicious shrimp appetizer, arugula salad and Noni’s spaghetti!
Excellent little restaurant with very good food and great service. I am never disappointed!
wonderfull specials, staff and owner were great!!!
Cafe Torre has been our go-to resataurant for many years now, owner and staff are amazing in making you feel a home. Food is outstanding!!!
Was a little packed, but it was Valentine's day. Food was fantastic as is usual in my experience. Service was prompt considering how full they were.
Nice atmosphere and good food. Nice lunch portions since the price was $20. up for most entrees.
A nice neighborhood restaurant. Service and food are always excellent. We always have a good experience there.
Great food and service.
While the atmosphere was quite nice , the restaurant conducive to great conversation and the staff were helpful, the food was very disappointing. The risotto was not cooked properly and neither was the pappardelle which had to go back for further cooking.
Great food; great value; the lights are way too bright.
Cafe Torre is the best resaurant in Cupertino and possibly far beyond. The revice is impecable, not intrusive, type of service you would receive in any European restaurant. Food is of highest qaulity, and daily specials never dissapoint.
This is one of our favorite restaurants, we have been going there for 20 years. Owner, and staff are amazingly personable and food is superb!!!
A great neighborhood gem. Very popular , good service and food.
The food was good. The fried calamari appetizer was excellent. The fish special was great, the swuid ink risotto with scallaps was ok (I hadn't had squid ink risotto before and found that I didnt' care for it. It was well cooked, however, and the scallops were good). Service was pretty inattentive, we decided not to bother with dessert because of it. Overall an okay experience.
I always enjoy going to Cafe Torre. The food is always fresh & deliciouly prepared!
Delicious food. Small, so Reservations are necessary. Not expensive for what you get.
we have been going to Cafe Torre since they opened in 1999, and they have been great all these years
Excellent specials and always great service. We are looking forward to comming back.
As usual, Cafe Torre is a nice warm, welcoming space. We had the caprese salad and homemade pate for apps, both were delicious. My wife and daughter ordered pasta dishes, both of which were great. I had the lobster tail which unfortunately was tough and dry. Good sauce, nice polenta bed, just a tough lobster tail. We'll be back though, this is a true neighborhood gem.
Seemed very expensive for the type of food. Wine also very pricey, for wines that are available cheaply at grocery store
Went for a holiday luncheon. Food was plenty and delicious.
Lovely neighborhood restaurant. Service and food are always great. They always have vegetarian options and excellent wines.
My favorite place for a team lunch for the holidays. Spectacular dessert plate. Wonderful staff.
Nice place for dinner before a show at DeAnza college. The staff was helpful with recommendations and they got us out in plenty of time. The food was delicious. Wine selection was limited which was surprising given the partner wine bar next door.
The staff was very nice but a little sullen and hard to read. The food was good, though!
The best spaghetti carbonara I've had since I was in Rome!
Specials today were outstanding, we will be back asap.
Open table had high reviews for this place. This place is over rated.
1) On a Saturday night 6:30 the place was empty, this was a red flag.
2) The food was ok nothing special.
3) We had the the tuna salad, the tuna was not fresh, but I think frozen.
4) It was kind of pricey for what you get.
We always love dining at Cafe Torre - both lunch & dinner! The staff remembers us too.
we have never had a bad experience at Cafe Torre. Owner and Staff are exeptional at what they do.
