“Hidden gourmet jewel in Swiss Piemonte, not to miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

I enjoyed on a sunday midday the menu of (at least) 5 plates with wine per glass. Creative interpretations of some well known dishes like Macaron, Pizza Margarita, Vitello tonnato, Cesar salad etc., surprising combinations of well defined and outstanding tastes, excellent local ingredients, even the dishes are of local pottery.

The municipalities of Cavigliano, Tegna and Verscio merged in 2013 into the new municipality of Terre di Pedemonte, Pedemonte means the same as Piemonte. Enjoy Swiss Piemonte!

“A treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

While visiting the region we stumbled upon this gem of a place when we stopped for coffee and a snack, it was well past the lunch hour and despite a closed kitchen these warm and friendly people received us as if we were guests in their home and created a delicious antipasto for us, we were so impressed we booked to return for dinner the following week.
We enjoyed one of the finest meals when we returned, a creative menu offers a variety of "out of the box" dishes with some seemingly unusual combinations created by the dedicated and talented chef, the combinations not only worked but were a delight to the senses. The food is fine dining at it's best and a testament to a passionate team.
The service was once again warm and inviting and made our night a very special one. We did not have to wait long at all for our meals as stated in one of the earlier reviews despite a busy restaurant.
I'd highly recommend you visit Tentazioni where you are sure to enjoy a delightful meal and experience.

“Good Food, but very Slow !”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

14 February we went to Tentazioni. the Welkom was very pleasant, and the interior of the restaurant really nice. from the menu you have a choice of seven different dishes, which you can combine as you like ( you can choose three,four and so on.) the quality is really good and also the visual part is nice.
This special evening the restaurant was fully booked, and with just two serving persons, who didn't seem well working together, and were also complaining about the other ( hearable). The waiting between the dishes became too long we arrived at 7.30 and left at 11.45
And had only 4 plates. In this range of price you expect more! For me it was a real delusion !

“Gastronomic Masterpieces”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Your mouth will never forget the pleasures of this unique and sophisticated, yet wholesome, culinary experience. Nestled within the natural beauty of the Onsernone and Centovalli valleys, Tentazioni offers a miriad of tastes, colors, and tantalizing fragrances. The name says it all.
