This restaurant was recommended in the Blue Guide to Italy, if I remember correctly. Historic, small and with friendly staff, they allowed us to start our meal 30 minutes before opening time, which was very kind of them. We found the food very different, and very tasty, but the wine a bit on the expensive side.

This is a 500 year old establishment is near the Duomo. It is small, but with great food and service. Our dinner was around 70 euro and was fabulous. If you are driving, you will be faced with finding a place to park. The restaurant does not have parking and since you are in a Touristica zone, you have to... More

This place dates back tothe year 1545, so by now they know how to make their customers feel welcome! Very small place, but the proprietor was extremely friendly and spend some time chatting with us giving us a run down on what to do in Trento. We had several small plates as we were not prepared to eat the 4... More

Its amazing!! I am falling short of words to describe how good the food is because I am still having a food orgasm. Its the best food you can have in Trento. When we went, we were a group of five and each of us ordered a separate dish. I ordered "Tonno in Crosta" and it is the best Tuna... More

Having been searching for a good restaurant in Trento, brought us to this small restaurant. When you enter the place, you immediately sense that this is a serious restaurant and well-dressed waiter hosted us to our table. We ordered the pasta served in 3 versions. Incredibly inventive and very tasty! The lamb as main course was cooked to perfection and... More

We had a fine meal here, of local "montain" foods (a fish version is also available). Our waiter suggested excellent wine, and it was less expensive than what we were thinking of getting! We were 4 and all at the table have to have the Chef's menu, Every one of us was delighted with our choice. Because most of the... More

As indicated by others, a small, charming , historied destination in a busy difficult to park center city. Although the quality of the food was excellent, and service was efficient and involved, the meal was less than hoped for. Asparagus foam with a bit of lake fish for a starter, a small pasta portion as a first and 2 veal... More

Whenever we visit Trento, we return to this ancient restaurant for a celebratory meal. Impeccably and imaginatively prepared regional food, a distinguished and warm atmosphere and perfect service combine to make this northern Italian cuisine and hospitality at its best.

I was at this restaurant for a lunch meeting and I have to say the food was very good, I had the tuna plate and the staff was great, very helpful and professional. The restaurant itself is very nice, with only around 8 or 10 tables, which adds to it's charm. You must have the chocolate trio as dessert.

I was in Trento for work and stopped for lunch in this amazing tiny little restaurant. There are just 6 or 7 tables so booking is essential. The service was top notch and the food was the best I had in a long time. I ordered a mixed starter that was delicious and a grilled fish with artichokes that was... More
