Close to perfection

The food was very good. The wine list was interesting with lots of local wine of good quality and the recommendations were to our liking, to say the least. The staff was more than very good, in our opinion the closest we experienced to star quality when the restaurant don't have a star. We... read more

As we arrived to Trento, we new we had to visit Due Spade. It is well known and highly rated. Located a couple of short blocks behind the cathedral, it is easy to find, and even easier to enjoy. It opens to a side street, so while it offers both indoor and outdoor tables, it is quiet, despite the occasional... More

Lovely small dining room, loved the presentation crockery and the glasses (thin stem). Menu read deliciously fine dining yet the experience not up to that standard Plates lacked true distinction and presentation, disappointing were the fois gras plate and the Nero di seppia pasta, amazing were instead the sage sorbet and the grissini I've not noticed a smile once on...

This restaurant offers all the classics of trentino cooking but with a modern twist. Excellent service and very good wine. A little nouvelle cuisine but in london or new york you would pay two to three times more for this quality. Prices here are in the average of northern Italy. It's also tiny so book in advance.

We turned up here on a warm Saturday night without a booking. We were quickly accommodated at an outside table. The service was attentive & the food amazing. My entrée of "flavours of the garden" was inventive & delicious.

Wonderful lunch You have to reserve because there are few tables - but it is worth it. The crew is lovely and very professional and the food is just incredibly good - all at a price which is very moderate - truely worth it, we come back

We had an excellent lunch! Good Trentino food and wine. Worthwile to leave the motorway for. We came from Venice and decided to stop for lunch in Trento. We expected the usual touristmenu in some pizzeria. This was a suprise we located thanks to TripAdvisor

We went there for dinner at 7:30 pm on a Monday. We had the gourmet choice of fish tasting menu. It was amazingly good. There are at least three chefs I can see in the kitchen. The restaurant is very small; maybe about 8 tables. It will be a good idea to make a reservation. They are closed on Sunday... More

A gourmet dinner in this small restaurant to discover the cuisine of Trentino. We chose the "Mountain" menu: six dishes and a selection of wines. A treat! Every dish was delicious and beautifully presented. The staff is helpful, very discreet.
