On a recent ski trip, some friends and I were travelling around in Trentino (in northern Italy) thanks to a reported snowfall there. Trentino is, along with Südtirol, one of the two provinces that make up the region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol, which is designated an autonomous region under the constitution.

With some rare exceptions, ski resorts around the world are seldom granted with good restaurants. However, Chef Vinicio Tenni serves refined Italian “mountain food” from the nearby region in the classical ski resort Madonna di Campiglio in Trentino/Dolomites and his restaurant Il Gallo Cedrone (capercaillie, a large turkey like Eurasian grouse of mature pine forests) do also have one star in Guide Michelin.

We went for a testing menu a 90 € (drinks/wines not included):
