(map) Trento is a chic-yet-casual, contemporary-yet-cozy, creative-yet-comforting take on Italian. Other than pizza, Italian food is a sorely under-represented cuisine out West, so we welcome these chefs to the ‘hood. Billed as a “new approach to Italian cuisine,” Trento gives the classics a twist with some top-notch ingredients.

Starters include fried calamari, mussels in white wine, and this silky beef carpaccio, above. It’s served more like a steak tartare, with an egg yolk on top and lightly dressed arugula to cut the richness of the steak.

Tender cheese ravioli was another deliciously rich dish, with well-seasoned lamb sausage and a poached egg garnished with fried sage. The brown butter sauce was heaven. There are several pizzas on the menu, or you can make your own. This one is the roasted pork, with caramelized onions, arrabiata sauce and chunks of goat cheese. The wood-fired pizza oven turns out a perfect crust.

There’s inside dining, outside dining, or bar dining, depending on whether you have a game to watch. And since this is Texas, we usually do!

I ate here and the food was not worth the price of getting food poisioning. Sick for three days. There is nothing unique about the place, i would have much rather ate at Backspace.

Curious to know how Misty knows she got food poisoning at Trento and how long she has worked at Backspace?
