Loved every mouthful

We stayed at Tegna as the weather over the New Year was so good. I had eaten in the Alla Cantina before with my hiking friends and had sat outside in the courtyard.

we discovered this wonderful restaurant about 4-5 years ago and it has become our favorite place in the area. Dante is just the most wonderful host, always accommodating our different needs (children's special plate, extra truffels, extra porcini risotto, substitutions etc.) The food is most authentic and unpretentious yet absolutely delicious. No better osso bucco in the area, no better... More

We asked for, and to our amazement got, the recepi for the marvellous salad dressing. The chef made a special "all mushroom" menu for us upon request. Great. We went back later and... More
