TÈ is The Inn at Leola Village’s formal Italian fine-dining restaurant and the menu accurately reflects that designation. When dining at the restaurant, guests have the option of choosing the five-course tasting menu, with an optional wine pairing, or the nine-course degustation menu, which is composed of smaller dishes. Both menus are available in vegetarian editions as well. For the five-course tasting menu, the flow follows that of traditional Italian meals, with a lighter course to start, followed by a pasta or risotto dish and then moving on to the main courses and meats or seafood. The menu at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star restaurant changes with the seasons, but the strategy and thought process is the same: Sometimes, the chef will use his grandmother’s recipes, applying modern twists to elevate the rustic dish to one befitting a formal restaurant. With all of his creations, a rooting in Italian cuisine and history is present, but with a fine-dining preparation and presentation.
