great food and service

The place is nice, we got one table outside. The waiter is super attentive. The food is delicious. The desserts were awesome. Prices a little high.

We went to this restaurant since 2 different people suggested us we go there. I had a look at the reviews too but was a bit worried that the service was going to be slow. To my surprise, it was not! The food was delicious and the waiter very kind. The portions were adequate to the price, everything was just... More

Lovely, sophisticated food with specialty local dishes from the Trentino area that are hard to find in other restaurants. It's a bit pricier than other places and the service isn't great (we had to wait for our food for a good while), but the food is worth it.

This is a top place to come in trento, It is more expensive than average restaurant. The service is good, overall the waiters are really kind and they do their job really well. However the food service is slow, you should not come here if you are in a hurry... please do not do this error. But if time is... More

We have been in Trento for one night only, came along the piazetta and found the short menu list of il Cappello very tempting - not one of these 10 pagers.... I had excellent cold "meat salad", my wife pasta with fish, I ordered pasta with coniglio. All was excellent, including the dessert. Only the fish that we had as... More

Very lovely place and great food. Anyway, I thought it was an osteria, but it is a fancy restaurant. Not too expensive, I would definitely recommend it. Not for a noisy group of people, but for couples and business meals.

Why is it so hard to find good meat in northern Italy? we were there for a business dinner. The atmosphere was lovely and it was tucked inot a small piazza in Trento that had somehow escaped my attention before. The outside was charming. I had high hopes! We ordered salads, which were not exciting, but were fine. My husband... More

A lovely restaurant in a quiet area of Trento. My first dish, a mushroom tart, was delicious. I then had a local speciality (warm bread dumplings filled with cheese) as a main, which was average. However the dessert (berries fruit salad with vanilla ice cream) was excellent. The atmosphere is lovely too if you sit outside. You're on a little... More

We arrived about half an hour before they closed for lunch. The food was very, very good, though the menu is a bit on the eclectic side. White tablecloths, fine stemware.. Excellent olive oil and balsamic vinegar accompanied the salad and very tasty breads. I had the pasta with mushrooms (my staple lunch) and it was excellent. No room for... More
