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

Every time I go to Tenuta's- and I go there frequently- I always find great authentic italian food, but they also have an amazing grocery section that's to die for! I buy their ravioli's to take home; they have a huge display of different olive oils, pre-made sauces, olives, cheeses, meats and sausages...just too many wonderful things! I could wander... More

With its narrow isles, amazing smells, amazing selection of wines and liquors, and did I mention fresh cannoli's? Size wise, its probably not a whole lot bigger than some mini marts. But inside! The deli counter with fresh Italian specialties. The wine section has a selection of Italian wines you won't find in even many much larger wine shops. Huge... More

My title says it all. A very large selection of cigars, ranging from cheap bundles to cigars from the top companies. A huge selection of alcohol as well. If you want Italian food, Tenuta's is the place to be. Hot paninis, pizza, and frozen ravioli are just a few of the items you can find here. Yes, it is worth... More

Tenuta's is a treasure.....filled to the brim with all sorts of Italian specialties it's always worth the trip to pick up or take home some great food. You can also purchase Italian food to eat there in a limited outdoor space.
