Treno Ristorante is an upscale Italian restaurant located in the historical train depot overlooking the Cuyahoga River in Downtown Kent, Ohio. Formerly the Pufferbelly Restaurant, the depot recently underwent a transformative renovation of its space, and is now open for lunch and dinner.

This historic location is the perfect space to enjoy an intimate evening or a large gathering with friends and family. Built in 1875, the Erie Train Depot served as a hub of commerce for the City of Kent until service was halted after 95 years. The building was then purchased by the newly formed Kent Historical Society in 1975 and subsequently saved from demolition. 1981 brought renovation to the depot and marked the opening of the Pufferbelly Restaurant which occupied the space until 2016. Beginning in 2017, a second transformation updated the historic building including a completely updated kitchen, dining room and bar. This remodel also revealed the original terrazzo flooring in the main dining room.

We invite you to sit back, relax, and enjoy Treno Ristorante where past meets present and classic meets contemporary; where fresh, local ingredients take precedent and exquisite service is not a welcome change, but always the standard. Saluti!
