Great pasta and wonderful pizza! It's not very big but they fobhave seating. The second time we came to Kenosha we went to... More

Jumpin' Jehoshaphat on a jellybean...I don't know where to start... This place (which is a market, NOT a restaurant) is very busy, but laid back at the same time. The first thing I did was grab an Italian sausage sandwich from the outdoor grill, made from a secret family recipe. Toppings are free for sandwiches, and the meat was so... More

Delicious outdoor grill/ restaurant with Italian food like no other. The grocery store is very unique with both ready made meals, pizzas and bakery items as well as an unbelievable variety of spices, pastas, meats, cheeses, sauces, wines, etc... One of my favorite places to go for any occasion as well as fabulous gifts.

The large market is absolutely amazing - filled with an abundance of wonderful, fragrant smells and food choices/groceries galore. Because we were in the market for lunch, we selected an eggplant panini for $5.99, a salad, and an assortment of cookies. The sandwich was basically bread. It include one paper thin slice of eggplant (I wondered how they cut it... More

Tenuta's is a gem of an Italian culinary prerequisites establishment. I can't summarize their offerings, other than to simply say that their range of prepared foods, traditional Italian pastries, cheeses, meats, sausages, relishes and pastas cover the full spectrum. If it's Italian and culinary - this is the place to get it. Even on New York's lower east side -... More

Having lived in Kenosha for many years, every time I am in the area, Tenuta's is a "must stop". Several bottles of wines (from an awesome selection), a cigar (from an awesome selection) and an authentic Italian deli (from an ... well, you get my drift). The aroma's and the selection are second to none - you won't be disappointed.... More

It's so much fun to shop at this little Italian market/restaurant! It's absolutely packed to the rafters with foods you may be familiar with, and many more that you may not have seen before. We love getting their 3-for-$10 jars of spaghetti sauces, along with the amazing salads and meats in the deli case. One aisle is completely stocked with... More

Best meatballs in the city. You could come just for the meatballs and walk out mega happy. This is the place for Italian food in this area. Great wine and cigar selection. Amazing pasta salad and the best prosciutto ever!

Love love love this place. I swear I gain lbs. just walking in and breathing in the scrumptious aromas this place has to offer. The homemade spinach ravioli is one of our favorite meals. Can't beat the cheese and wine selection either!

From wine to cigars to cheese to olive oils to pasta to tomato sauces to coffees or coffee syrups to mushrooms or olives or candy to nuts to Italian Deli items to Italian breads and oh the spices Tenuta's has them all. But save the cheese experience for the cheese castle on I-94. Here you might find some unwanted mold... More
