Al Gusto is a nice alternative to the hustle and bustle of Trento's city center. It's only about a kilometer's walk from Piazza Fiera, located near one of the tributaries to the Adige River -- a lovely area frequented by many of the locals. Al Gusto is a small home-style restaurant where you can see the activities of the chef as you're waiting for your food. The atmosphere is simple but cozy -- a very good if you desire a private date. The prices are comparable to other sit-down restaurants in Trento.
The food itself is simple, yet flavorful and the portions are reasonable. My wife ordered their house dish, which was braised chicken with a slightly smokey flavor. I ordered the "Mix di Pesce" (lightly fried calamari). I was surprised to see how many calamari they served. The calamari were lightly breaded and seasoned, which allowed the natural flavors to run their course.
I've seen more fanciful food presentations, but again, the simplicity of the restaurant is much appreciated. If you want to see the quieter side of Trento yet stay within walking distance of the center, Al Gusto is an excellent choice.
