“Dull and overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2011

There are a number of more interesting and better value places in Trento. This place has stale bread sitting on all the tables, very unimaginative and blandly executed food, and a tired ambience.

The only plus side- the owner is super friendly.

“Great food in a local atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2010

Overall a very good experience, owner was very enthusiastic and helpful. We ordered a pasta with mushrooms and spinach (8€) and a spinach and cheese ravioli (9€). Both dishes were very tasteful and the portion size was adequate for lunch. Great place to experience locals during a meal. Ask for a menu card in English.

“Good and pleasant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2009

The restaurant is located in a minor street, but close to piazza
Duomo and easily reachable. It has a large, welcoming internal room and a
courtyard, which is used in summer. The owner and all the waiters are very
warm and kind. We had a social dinner here, so we couldn't choose the menu,
but we had a chance to taste some of the local
specialties. These included a choice of 'antipasti, noticeably a kind of
salted strudel with ham and cheese, two first dishes, ravioli and very
good gnocchi, and stewed meat with polenta. In past occasions we were served a larger choice of vegetables, which were also very good. We had regular wine 'of the house', but a choice of wines is available. The dessert we were served, a semifreddo, was regular, but somehow below expectations. This was not a problem, as we were full, but I have noticed the same also in the past. I must say however that a varied choiche of desserts is available in the menu. We had an arranged price for the dinner, but the prices on the menu
are good for the quality of the restaurant.
I will continue my tradition of dining at Orso Grigio at least once when in
Trento, and I can recommend this restaurant.
