Italian-inspired cuisine in the heart of Riverwest

food, wine

& cocktails

Our open kitchen meets you as you enter; dancing flames foreshadow the delectable meal that awaits. Hearty and cheesy, light and zesty, and every taste in between, our chefs will prepare the meal your are seeking. Our seasonal menu features Italian-inspired dishes including pasta, seafood, salad, flatbread, and dessert. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options abound. Our Italian wine list supports family vineyards, reflects the unique terroir of Italy, and provides perfect food pairings. Uniquely crafted or traditional, our cocktails will enchant and our rotating Wisconsin beer list will delight beer lovers.

We won't pull the wool ovr' your eyes on this one. It's the last sizzle of the season with this lamb shank ala coriander. Accompanied by some broccolini and hosted on a parsnip root puree. "We won't silence this dish"-Arlie
