We were attracted to this restaurant by the garden courtyard setting that we could see at the end of the 20 metre cavern like corridor that led from the road to the door of the restaurant. The menu was also extensive and there were a good many different risottos on offer. Unfortunately the courtyard was full and we were shown... More

We ate in La Cantinota on. Sunday evening and we based our choice on trip advisor reviews and close proximity to our hotel- we were a little concerned by some of the negative reviews but decided to try it anyway. We called in an hour before we wanted to eat and the proprietor was very obliging and reserved us a... More

The atmosphere in the downstairs cellar is great, and even in summer in the outdoor garden it is good. My wife and I eat here whenever in Trento and always enjoy the food which is reasonably priced. For non-Italian speakers there is a menu in English and there are English speaking waiters. We rate this restaurant highly.

Great atmosphere in a vault-like cellar. Classy interior. Young, very friendly waiter who spoke so softly you could hardly hear him. Large menu with different themes. Setting the expectations kind of high. Ordered two meat dishes.Both arrived a bit COLD. The truffle sauce with a little skin on it(!!!) Very tasty meat though. Fillet very tender but with quite a...

Our visit to this restaurant was very peculiar. It is located underground and the atmosphere is in general fine. I had one of the 3-courses menu they offer and in general everything was great. My wife had a steak that was too much undercooked, we asked the waiter to cook it a bit more, and he did just a bit.... More

We spent the whole day touring and didn't return to our hotel until late. Our hotel recommended an hotel which wasn't opened that evening, so we meandered around town and came upon this restaurant, what a great choice. It was like a cave which was really cool, loved the atmosphere. We were hungry but not starving, so we ordered and... More

Unfortunatly we supposed it could be better. The price is quite high. But the food was not so good. The interior is nice. But portions weren't big enough as in another restaurants. And quality of dishes was not high. Also we waited our beverages for long time.

Our meal was quite good on a Sunday afternoon with restaurant patronized with mainly locals. Service was excellent. We will certainly return when next in Trento.

The B&B I stayed in recommended this restaurant as being of good value for the quality. Pleasant to sit in the quiet, if then a bit cool, courtyard. Prompt and courteous service, The Toliolini porci and Cervo salmi (as abbreviated on my printed bill) were good.

Thank Trekillo
