Thursdays Sample menu

Sample Menu

Welcome to Trentino di Alto Adige! This northern region neighbors Switzerland and Austria, and is laced with the peaks of the Alps and the Dolomites; These regions influence the cuisine from Trentino greatly, where homemade sauerkraut and often dishes such as goulash are served regularly for Sunday dinner. The culture is based on the lives of those that live in the shadow of the mountains with an emphasis on poultry, whole grains and traditional salt cured meats, making complete use of recipes and traditions that can be found nearby. So sit back, enjoy a glass of wine, our sampling of Trentian cuisine and the company of those around you. Mangia!
