we have been to this restaurant 5 times for the tasting menu and its superb flavours with great service. They have authentic flavours and the pasta seems to be handmade.
I am the type who always leave the fat on the plate and dont eat chicken skins but the pork belly is perfecto! I really admire the skill of the kitchen staff and how each dish complements each course after one another.

They change the menu according to seasons and you get a chance to try things that you normally world never eat - last time i ate a flower that was in my soup.
Those with bigger appetites might still be a bit peckish afterwards but they plates arrive in a pace which still give you enough time to digest the food in between.

I took my wife wife to Tentazioni for her birthday and it was absolutely magnificent! The reservation was smooth - done online! We opted for a 7 course taster menu with matching wine. I explained my wife is gluten intolerant, this was not a problem, the ravioli was changed for scallops and the dessert was changed to berries and sorbet, The cod was perfect and the pork belly divine. The food was amazing and the presentation impeccable! The service was exceptional! We look forward to visiting again. Well done to Matteo and the team for treating us to a wonderful night out.

We went as a group of six to celebrate my father's birthday and had the tasting menu with the wine matching.

The food was wonderful, the starter of beet and gorgonzola soup was delicious and paired with a stunning chardonnay, followed by a pheasant ravioli with basil oil and a tasty pino. The cod in the fish course was perfectly cooked, with crispy skin and perfectly moist flesh on a chickpea mash, and then came a lemon sorbet cleanser before the wonderfully crisp and meaty pork belly paired with a deliciously smooth red wine, the pre-desset was yummy, creamy and flaming, and followed by a deliciously soft and moist chocolate fondant.

The service was smooth, attentive without being overbearing and it was great value for money.

The location makes this a bit of a hidden gem and is worth making the effort to attend for a truly yummy evening out.

I cannot recommend their tasting menu highly enough, particularly with the 50% Voucher Cloud deal. The six (or was it seven?) courses each stood out on their own and as a whole provided a wonderful culinary experience.

We used an Amazon voucher for a 7 course tasting menu (no wine). The food was very flavoursome indeed, and very well cooked. Service was attentive, friendly and knowledgeable.
