“One of the best in Switzerland?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015

We have had lunch at this outstanding restaurant some ten times during the last twelve months. That's obviously an indication that we like it a lot. From the time you enter the door until you leave it's an outstanding experience. Relaxed, very friendly, professional service and gourmet food at Michelin star levels.More than worth the quite long and winding road to get there.

“GREAT NEW MICHELIN STAR RESTAURANT IN TICINO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2015

The 7 course tasting menu is a must! A gastronomic delight with fantastic combinations and depth of flavours. The wine pairings worked perfectly and the service was friendly and professional. A real treat and worth the wait for the booking. Having eaten in many great restaurants this was possible the best meal we have ever had!

“A magnificent dinning experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014

We ate dinner at Tentazioni, and took the chef's 5 course meal. The food was not only delicious, but also original and beautiful. The staff were very kind, and made the experience even more pleasant. We would definitely recommend it to anyone who appreciates fine dinning.

“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!
