This is a delightful hotel/restaurant. The food is superb and fully deserves the Michelin star. The room was very comfortable and clean. And the staff were incredibly pleasant and efficient from the moment of arrival to departure. Go there!

We took the surprise menu and was disappointed, as it included the dishes from the menu....It is a very good restaurant, but in my opinion over sophisticated and overpriced

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... More

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!

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.

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... More

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...

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.
