The Inn at Leola Village has two restaurants. Osteria Avanti is the inn’s casual restaurant, where a complimentary European-style breakfast is served daily, followed by seatings for lunch and dinner. The inn’s upscale option is Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star TÈ Restaurant, which is open on Friday and Saturday evenings only. Seatings are by reservation, between 5 and 9 p.m.
Those dining at TÈ choose between a five-course prix fixe, where each course includes four options, or a nine-course degustation, where each course has been pre-selected. Expect to see the chef — toque John Calabrese is fond of tableside preparations and embellishments. Plus, every course is offered with a wine pairing.
The inn’s steady wedding business allows for an in-house pastry chef, who creates not only cakes for newlyweds but also all pastries for Osteria Avanti and TÉ. All pastas are made in house as well, and many vegetables and herbs come from the inn’s own gardens. Some ingredients are flown to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel directly from Italy.
