Another perfect dinner at this Locanda (see my previous reviews). Standouts this time were a 'creme caramel' with fresh local mushrooms and sweetbreads, a pig cheek braised in beer (incredibly deep flavour), and a pistachio ice-cream. But also delicious were torlelloni (well) filled with local herbs and confit cherry tomatoes, a Guinea fowl with recurrant and a cream of celeriac,... More

Spent seven nights. This is a simple and beautiful hotel, with exquisite and impeccable management, generous and unbelievably good quality breakfast. Just next door to the best restaurant in the valley. Rooms all in wood, with great bathrooms. Not to be missed!

We stayed in the tiny village of Brez and went to this restaurant on our first night of 3. We had booked an apartment with a kitchen, planning to mostly cook our own meals, but this place was so good we went back for a second night on our last night. Not only was the food delicious, but the prices... More

My wife and I had our wedding anniversary dinner while traveling in Italy and cannot say enough about the wonderful service and delightful culinary experience we had at this restaurant. During our 10-week trip in Italy this was by far one of our favorite places. We cannot wait for the opportunity to go back!

I visit the Trento area a lot, and in my view Locanda Alpina currently offers the best quality for money around. Many dishes and nibbles are at the same level as at the Michelin starred restaurants in the province. Flavours are full and dishes firmly in traditional territory, but suitably modernised and lightened. In the asparagus season two very different... More

This restaurant was a very pleasant discovery. The location is beautiful, with old wooden furnitures, handcrafts from the region and nice music. The food is really amazing and the service very very good. The entree, offered by the owners included potatoes candies: a speck wrap with fried potatoes laying on a branch of pine tree. Beautiful to see and super... More

Once again, Trip Advisor reviews (and our local host Daniele Albertini) were right on about this great restaurant. We have dined in several famous restaurants in big cities in the U.S. and I have to say this is one of the most memorable evenings we have ever had. All the previous reviews were almost too good to be true, but... More

A lovely fine dining restaurant, this establishment will not disappoint you. Family run, with wife Silvana at the stove and husband Danilo in the dining room, it was as great a discovery as it was accidental - and must thank Tripadvisor for that. The dining room is bright and cosy, wood panelling all around and a beautiful old school map... More

Husband in the front of house, wife (helped by progeny...) in the kitchen, a lovely room where every detail has been thought of; and, above all, really nice food: all this made for a wonderful meal at this elegant Locanda. Form the nibbles and amuse bouches you realise that you are in for a treat: the flavoured butters, the bunch... More

Brez is actually a village consisting of 5 hamlets (fraziones). We were staying in Traversara and luckily for us, this restaurant, which is part of the only hotel there, was open. The daughter of our host said the locals don’t like it that much, as for Italian rural standards it’s quite expensive and upmarket. When we arrived, it did seem... More
