Where We Ate: Trento

All of these places are walkable from the Grand Hotel Trento in about 10 minutes or less.

Ristorante Duo
The name Duo makes sense because there are 2 floors and 2 different concepts. When you walk in, you are in the tapas bar. If you go downstairs, you are in a sit-down restaurant with Italian food. We went there because we were interested in tapas, but when we saw the seating on that floor--backed bar stools either at high-tops or the bar itself--we went downstairs. There we learned that you can't order tapas in the downstairs restaurant (or vice versa). We were sad to hear that, but our disappointment didn't last long. Their bread basket was filled with tasty homemade breads and rolls and was more reasonably priced than some of the other bread baskets we had. The food we ordered was delicious, too. My husband ordered an asparagus risotto.

I had a ravioli dish with speck (a type of ham) and peas.

We split a second course of pork.

Although there was no printed children's menu, when the server saw my daughter, she said that they could prepare her a simple dish like pasta with tomato sauce. We were impressed with that, too. The pasta was cooked well, and the tomato sauce tasted homemade, not like something out of a jar.

The price point of this restaurant was somewhat higher than most of the restaurants we visited, comparable to fine-dining prices in the US. However, we felt like the quality of the food and service also lived up to what you see in fine dining establishments in the US, so we didn't feel as if those prices were charged unfairly.

In all, this was one of my favorite meals in Italy. If you're looking for a place to have a special dinner in Trento that is still kid-friendly, this is an excellent choice.

Due Mori
There are no pizzas here, but there are a variety of pastas and risottos that should pass muster with children. I was feeling adventurous, so I ordered some gnocchi with blueberry sauce. The gnocchi were well prepared and the sauce was good, but I'm still not sure if I liked the combination of the two.

My husband and daughter were completely happy with what they ordered, though, including this risotto.

Green Tower
The menu here is good for families in that there are pizzas for the kids and other dishes for the adults. My husband and I enjoyed the risotto and spaghetti carbonara,
and my daughter enjoyed her pizza (as always).

Pizzeria Chisté
This place has a good location because it's on the way to the Duomo. It also has a wide variety of pizzas, which were fine, but not the best of the trip.
Unfortunately, the service here was not very good. It was kind of slow and they didn't stop by after bringing the food to see if we needed anything else. I waited a while to get the check. Don't go out of your way to eat here.

Imbiss Kebab (Via Torre Vanga)
This kebab stand had some really tasty gyros.
Nothing is kid-sized, but it's affordable, so we didn't feel bad when my daughter couldn't finish hers. In fact, I think my husband ended up eating some of her leftovers. The only downside is that the kebab stand doesn't have its own seating. We took our gyros to the park, but your available options are going to depend on the weather.
