WHAT TO EXPECT

We offer our guests the very best of comfort and privacy
because we’re convinced that enjoying any occasion to the full isn’t just a question of choosing the right time, but of having the right space too.

The location

Gaze into the apparent infinity of the Rotaliana Plain vineyards. That's the speciality of the terrace of Vecchia Sorni, which welcomes its guests to a truly unique, refined, modern place, a new generation wooden structure with surprisingly large windows that seem to reach out silently into the landscape, offering a magical sensation at any time of the day. For those who want to breathe in the spirit of a place that's been here for more than 500 years and lose themselves in its history, the inside lounge with vaulted ceilings is ideal for small groups looking for a food and wine experience in an atmosphere that's as intimate and warm as home.

History

It's taken just over twenty years for the chef Lorenzo Callegari to transform a trattoria serving traditional dishes into one of the focal points of fine dining in Trentino, whose fame has spread beyond the local and national borders. It was in 1999 that Lorenzo newly emerged from an intense learning experience in Italy and abroad, took a gamble on himself and his passion and took over the premises along with his parents and, from that time onwards, month after month and year after year, forged it into his idea of what cooking should be carefully crafted without being haughty, refined but practical, inspired by the local surroundings, but at the same time not unaffected by the experience built up in his travels around the world. This approach brought its awards immediately, word got around and a huge variety of customers found their way to Sorni in Lavis, from all over Italy and beyond. You'll find all sorts at Vecchia Sorni - ordinary people, politicians, journalists, economists, businesspeople, professionals and more, all sharing the same desire to take a break in the tranquil Avisiane Hills and spoil themselves with the original culinary creations of a chef who truly loves his work and is able to convey his passion most eloquently by serving it up on a plate.
