Been here for a dinner, after a week spent in town trying different restaurants. Definitely this is one of the best choice in Trento for fine dining, interesting menu, nice location (both outside in the garden and inside), service is ok. Ask tip to the waiters for the order. Booking is highly suggested.

Every time I come to Trento, I enjoy eating at this place not far away from the Buonconsiglio castle. Weather permitting, one can quietly eat outside. Today, I had tuna professionally cooked.

We loved this place. It is elegant, romantic, cozy, and well located (but a bit hard to spot). The service is great and friendly, and the food is memorable, actually the best we had in our 6-days trip around Italy. First, we got some cavernet sauvignon red wine which was delicious. I got a pasta with tuna that was perfectly... More

Very good and authentic italian food. The service was great and I liked the interior. Good vine list and the best apple cake ever.

Upon arrival to Trento, several people recommended this restaurant to us. Being Sunday, we were disappointed finding it closed. It was closed again on Monday, so we lined up early in the evening on Tuesday to make sure we didn't miss out. It was worth the wait. Located within half a block from St. peter's church, in the heart of... More

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

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.

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.

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
