Formerly a one-starred michelin restaurant, Osteria a le Due Spade is still a top-notch pick in Trentino, and arguably the best one in the town center. The Osteria is renowned for its lightened, creatively revisited traditional dishes. It is set in an elegant 18th-century dining hall. Both this and the decor contribute to creating a very pictoresque atmosphere. There is... More

One of the most atmospheric restaurants my family and I have ever visited, a tastefully designed underground cellar. Impeccable but not overbearing service. Upmarket, but approachable and inviting, with a mixture of couples and families - a number of locals. Food of the highest quality, with an exceptional wine list. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. Book ahead.

Really nice small osteria in Trento with only ten tables. The cooking is really tasty, the wine list very good and the way they treat you makes this restaurant a great experience. They have a regular menu and also two tasting menus. Must-visit place if you go by Trento. The sommelier is very good too.

We arrived in Trento in the late afternoon after traveling from the US for over 24 hours. I knew we would be want to have our first night’s dinner set for us. Our concierge at the Hotel was kind enough to make the reservation for us from an advance email. Such a cozy dining room and first rate service. Each... More

My husband and I dined here earlier this week, and had a wonderful evening of delicious food, impeccable service and traditional atmosphere. Definitely a special occasion restaurant, the staff was attentive, well informed and helpful with choosing dishes and wines. Most meals are served as a tasting platter of three or four kinds of delicacies, unless you opt for the... More

The food was very good. The wine list was interesting with lots of local wine of good quality and the recommendations were to our liking, to say the least. The staff was more than very good, in our opinion the closest we experienced to star quality when the restaurant don't have a star. We will go back the next time... More

As we arrived to Trento, we new we had to visit Due Spade. It is well known and highly rated. Located a couple of short blocks behind the cathedral, it is easy to find, and even easier to enjoy. It opens to a side street, so while it offers both indoor and outdoor tables, it is quiet, despite the occasional... More
