This is a very good Italian place. The food was very authentic and the meal was very good and very fine as befits a restuarant with a star from Michelin. The place is a bit out of way

When planning to spend more money than usual, I have more expectations.In spite of the mixed reviews, we thought we would give it a chance. The restaurant is beautiful, well appointed with dishes, fine china, sculptures on most tables, etc. The menu in interesting and well translated by very pleasant and professional members of the family of the owners( i...

Arriving at the restaurant, in this small village in the middle of nowhere, you have the sense that you might be in the wrong place... However, once the door opens, you realize that this is the place! Service: From the greeting, the seating, to the service, everything was perfect. The server was very polite, helpful with questions about the complicated... More

Had a disappointing experience in this supposed-starred restaurant. We were the only diners at lunch, and expected an awesome experience. Maybe our expectations were misplaced. The wine-list by the glass was very average, although the bottle selection was wide and reasonably priced. The food however left much to be desired. There was NO olive oil in the restaurant to go...

The atmosphere, the sweet special rose and red decor, the menu and the wine list! A nice place too with outside seating on tables covered by a hedge to blend out the traffic noise. we were recommended to go there by other fellow guests.

Really not bad, expensive , but strange design, quite oversalted clams - there are a lot of things to admire in kitchen and service, but also a lot of small shortages. They quite compensate each other. The service were good- no doubt.

After being turned down from other restaurants, we found La Tenda Rossa where they took us without reservations. We rang the door bell to be let in and from there on out, it was an incredible dining experience. The ambiance was over the top formal, but still fun nonetheless. The food was fantastic and creative and served in beautiful, varied... More

It is a two star michelin restaurant, in fact with good food, good selection of wine and excellent service, with a lot of waiters. It is really a good experience, although quite expensive, around 120 euros per person with a bottle of Castelo di Broglio wine for two. Unfortunately, some people from our group had sickness in the day after,... More

There are a few scenes in the cartoon that try to convey the feel of wonder, creation, magic as a kid may experience it. That's what happened to me at the La Tenda Rossa, especially when I tried their tortelli di zucca gialla al sentore di affumicato con cubo di gambero, ricotta e favette. Expensive? Yes. Formal? Yes.

I don't want to unfairly review a place after only one meal - but I honestly have to say that knowing the prices now I could not see myself returning here by choice any time soon. I know you don't eat at "expensive" restaurants looking for value - but - the food better deliver. Outside of the overly decorated, ornate... More
