Unless you're very used to driving steep, narrow mountain roads, it will take you at least 20 minutes to get here from Domodosolla. And make sure you've got a GPS or google maps because it's not easy to find.

The food is very good. It's not a gastronomic restaurant and doesn't pretend to be. The menu is small: mostly cured meats, pasta and game.

Get a table next to the fire if you can. And, if you're going to drink, I'd recommend staying the night to avoid dangerous road back. And you should drink ! They've got a good house wine at 10 Euros the liter.

The food and service here was so good, it is hard to describe. The ravioli flavors hit your mouth in "stages", each as delicious as the previous. The lamb chops with raspberry vinaigrette were tender and succulent. Their success comes from the combination of fresh ingredients, passionate cooking skills from Sabrina, excellent service by Simonetta....and the spellbinding views and surroundings!

I believe the staff that runs and manages the restaurant are completely different than the Villa/Agriturismo. They were very nice and we liked all of the food. The other nights we sat out at the patio and ordered up wine or coffee. Once again wonderful hosts and I can not leave off = SPECTACULAR and breathtaking views of the entire valley and mountaintops.

La Tensa is a peaceful and beautiful place lost in the woods where you can relax and discover the region. The room and the house are very cute and clean. And the food in the restaurant is one of the best we never ate!
