Undoubtedly worth a visit. One of Turin's many historic cafes. Very pleasant environment even if it is always full. It is famous for ice cream but I have not found it so good. What is really excellent is their hot zabaglione!

This is the best place to have a toast (ham and cheese on fantastic bread that's toasted) and beverage to recharge before heading back to the museum's, shopping or people watching. Delicious and friendly service for under 10 €.
