I love, love, love this restaurant. The atmosphere is calm, clean and contemporary, leaving all the focus on the stellar food. The white interior makes a delightful backdrop to the colors of the fresh ingredients and the artistic plating. The truffle ravioli is beyond delicious and the tiramisu defies anyone to replicate.

So often, the restaurants in central squares and tourist strips are average. Il Trionfo is a stunning exception. Interesting Italian food as good as I have eaten anywhere. Great service and interesting wine suggestions which really enhanced the experience. It's heavily booked on weekend evenings, so we went for lunch on a Saturday, which made for a wonderfully relaxed afternoon.

In a town where most restaurants are understaffed and have a feeling of bad management this place has it all right. Excellent food, good happy service and a refined menu equal to a restaurant in Rome, New York....

It was not plenty but just enough. Service was great, the maître gave us some good tips and info about the wine they serve. They had enough staff, filled up... More

In a nutshell: not worth the money. Was tipped by other people this was a really good restaurant. Looking at the prices: 20eur for starter and 35eur for main, I was expecting good food. Service in general was good, although you need to have some patience. But their menu warns about above average waiting times because of fresh food. Starter... More

We went there for lunch time, took the 3 course lunch menu for 28 Euros ! Nice amuse bouche, all in all good food, freshly prepared, very tasty, probably the best italian food around, lots of passion in the plates ! The only negative aspect was, we ordered a kids portion of spaghetti vongole for our daughter, a rather small.... More
