The home team came close to doubling their lead after the break when Zlatan Ibrahimovic shot a shot wide of the mark before Castillejo fired a low target shot from a promising position in the area.
Moreno Longo took charge of Torino for the second time since he replaced the fired Walter Mazzari earlier in February, but his side fell back to another defeat after losing 3-1 to Sampdoria during his debut.
Torino is 14th with 27 points, five free from the relegation zone, but lost their last five Series A matches, allowing 17 goals.
