In December of 2007 we opened our doors in beautiful Historic Downtown Stevensville. We wanted to bring the “rustic” feel of Southern Italy to our building that was built in 1886. Our cuisine is focused on specialties from that area of Italy, specifically the Southern Italian area right outside of Napoli.

Our wine list offers Italian wines, American Wines, and Global wines as well as over 25 wines that we feature by the glass. Focusing primarily on Italian wines, this part of our wine list is divided by regions allowing you to experience the distinct varietals grown within the 20 regions of Italy.

Today Italy is the second largest producer of wine with over 270 varieties of native grapes, more than any other country in the world. Several of our producers such as Antinori, Tenuta San Guido, and Pio Cesare, to name a few, are widely known as leaders in the Italian market. While other wines on our list come from smaller boutique vineyards, who are also producers of outstanding wines that focus on being quality conscious.

Our Barolo’s, Super Tuscans and Brunello’s, highlight some of our favorite producers as well as their better vintages. As you get to know our wine list we also hope you try some of Italy’s newer varieties such as Amarone, Valpolicella, Aglianico, Gavi Di Gavi and Soave, to name some of our favorites. As the rules of pairing wines and food have lost the formality of strict guidelines we would be happy to assist you in choosing a wine that complements your meal as well as offering you a wine that suits your taste and desires.

We would like to thank all of our “old” friends that have supported us from the start and welcome all of our “new” friends that are visiting us for the first time- Salute!

Buon Appetito
