The restaurant


Attention to detail, to experience an unforgettable emotion.


A romantic dinner, a business lunch or the pleasure of enjoying delicacies: every occasion is good to be pampered at Osteria a Le Due Spade in Trento, where details contribute to making your visit unforgettable.

Evocative ambiance, friendly and attentive service, sublime cuisine.

A balance that is achieved after years of work and passion and that makes us proud to host you to share with you the pleasure of conviviality.

Nearly 500 years of catering in the heart of Trento.

A Trentino document of the time, written by an anonymous hand, tells, referring to Cardinal Gonzaga’s secretary:

“On the ante-eve of Santa Lucia I came to Trent, and at the hotel of the Two Swords I dismounted. Evvi an innkeeper of good air, affable and agreeably discreet, and if he did not fear his wife, he would be a better companion than he is.”

Today as then: timeless charm

Over the centuries, the quality in hospitality, food and ambiance has remained unchanged.
Upon entering, one is immediately enveloped by a small stube made of blond pine wood, originating in the 1700s, with eight elegantly prepared tables and an antique stove made of green majolica from the Non Valley.

A barrel-vaulted ceiling from the 1500s completes the atmosphere, creating an ambiance of timeless charm, now enshrined as a temple of reference for excellent Trentino cuisine.

In the summertime, a stone’s throw from Trento’s magnificent Piazza Duomo, there is the possibility of eating outside in an elegant outdoor dining area.

The Return… to Le Due Spade 2023.

I am back where I started: new stimuli, new impulses and new challenges… New challenges because, with the Peterlana family, who have run this beautiful restaurant for forty years, it will be difficult to compete…
It will however be a very stimulating challenge.

Yes, because Le Due Spade remains a landmark restaurant, the “Stube Coccola”, eight tables, sixteen to eighteen people, but which, if necessary, on request, for those who wish to book the entire Stube, can seat around thirty guests.

I would like it to stay like this, as it has always been, but with a different slant, an informal, elegant service and the right attention to the Guest, with an essential cuisine, of “substance and gluttony”, without too many frills, an Osteria-Stube that gives warmth and transmits history, because the Due Spade 1545 is a truly UNIQUE restaurant! I WAIT FOR YOU!!!
