The most romantic restaurants in Trentino
When nothing can be left to chance
Oftentimes, when it comes, perfect moments happen suddenly. You realise only when you’re actually experiencing it. Everything clicks: the atmosphere is perfect, so is the lighting, perhaps also the music, the place itself, and the person next to you. So you just enjoy the experience. Later, you try to rediscover it, because right then, your emotions were flying free, unhindered, and you felt connected with everything around you. And when everything around you is right there, reflected in the eyes of the one you love?
There are places – special places – which help lower the defences and soften the senses. Places like these abound in Trentino, perhaps some even hold cherished memories for you. However, there are special occasions when you want to be pampered, like you’re the star of the show, as if a place has been prepared just for you.
So we’ve selected a list of restaurants for you. Each is unique, and it is our sincere hope that they will gift you moments of pure perfection. The setting, impeccable service, selection of flavours, and that special Trentodoc wine served at just the right temperature. Moments when you and your loved one find yourself immersed in that perfect blend of forests, mountains, streams, lakes and sunsets – the very best of what Trentino has to offer. Choose your selection and enjoy the experience. Your table for two is already waiting for you!
