We wandered into this restaurant on a rainy Sunday evening when many others were closed. The ambiance is lovely: you walk down a hallway that opens into a large garden courtyard where the tables are. It was all covered so protected from the rain. I ordered an antipasta with a fried potato pancake-like piece, lucanica, ham, and cheese. It was DELICIOUS. I was sad that I had to share so much with my daughter. My husband ordered a plate of speck, which was also delicious. They happily prepared our daughter a plate of spaghetti with tomatoes, but it would have been nice if they had made it about a third of the size that they did (which many other restaurants have been happy to do). We followed our antipasti with a pair of primi; I had the canerderlotti, and my husband had some mushroom ravioli. Both were delicious. There were two kinds of canerderlotti: a cheese (grana) version and a spinach version, and I have to say that the spinach one was by far better (though the cheese was good). My husband also had some stewed deer as a secondi, served with polenta, which was very nicely flavored and tender. For dessert we shared a chocolate molten cake, which was so delicious that we devoured it in the blink of an eye.

The only downside was the service; for some reason, it lagged a little in the middle. I wouldn't fault the restaurant too much for this; the setting was lovely to enjoy, and we had glasses of wine the whole time.

Great food. Sadly did not find it until last day in Trento. Terrific ravioli with porcini. One of best meals we had in Italy.

Located in the center of Trento, this place has a very nice internal courtyard where you can eat. The atmospehre, especially at night in the summer, is great. Very good food and service.

If you are in the Adige Valley, you must visit La Continota in Trento. The food is sublime ... really. We we so delighted, we returned the next night. The best risotto I've had in many years. Beautiful lamb. Nice selection of wines from the region and beyond.
