The first time we visited Caffe Torino a couple months ago, we heard they would be having wood fired pizza in the summer and we couldn't wait to go back and try it (and get another crepe & cronut of course).
The husband was tired of me talking endlessly about the crepes and cronuts, and Breckyn had just turned 12 up at girls camp that week so the second we got home from camp (and showered), we headed to out for a family lunch to celebrate the Birthday girl!
When we arrived, we found out Caffe Torino was celebrating their one year anniversary by offering specialty birthday crepes during the month of July. (they are not on the menu, so you have to request them).
That made for one super happy birthday girl! (I have a feeling we will be back for another little girls birthday that falls in July).
Ok, now for the moment we had been waiting for (aside from crepes and cronuts).
We heard the wood fired pizza was amazing. It was so fun chatting with Alejandro, he is from Rome Italy. He has so much heart and soul for his craft. He had this oven custom built. He travels all over making pizza, so you have to hunt him down. Be sure to follow Caffe Torino on instagram to see when he will be there next. I promise, it's worth a trip.
All fresh ingredients. So good!!! I think I said that 12 times in my insta stories when we were there.
Also, highly recommend the strawberry bandana smoothie, husband and baby stole mine.
Wells (19 months) couldn't get enough of the calzone. And now husband won't stop talking about the PIZZA! Actually the calzone in particular. You guys, I have no words, best ever! I wish Mamma Mia Pizza was at Caffe Torino everyday. I think we are going to hunt them down this weekend. Can't stop thinking about it.
Eating fresh wood fire Italian pizza al fresco is basically how I would like to spend every weekend of my life.
1 calzone, 2 pizzas and a few crepes fed our family of 7.
We got to try 2 new menu items. The Apricot Brie and Biscoff crepes. They are both seasonal so RUN! They use local produce a lot of the time so the menu is always changing.
The Biscoff and Birthday Crepes were the kids faves (chunks of Biscoff cookies throughout the crepe won me over too) and I loved the apricot because, Brie, always Brie.
And of course we couldn't leave without gelato! The mojito was perfect for a hot summer day. Their flavors change all the time, so be sure to check out options when you go.
Until we meet again!
