Tenutas is an institution! Best wine selection and always a red tag sale (buy one/get one free) on a large selection of wines. Imported Italian goodness and some other European imports as well. Insane selection in the deli and old time candy. If you can't find it at Tenutas it doesn't exist. Our family from up north visits with a... More

Tenuta's is not really a restaurant (although they have all kinds of sausage cooking outside on a grill in the summer) but an Italian deli that is second to none. It is worth the stop as a tourist attraction for your senses.

Tenuta's is a foundational part or Kenosha. Everything from meat to Scotch is located here. A great variety of special beer, cigars and wine. If they don't have ut, Chris will do all he can to find it for ya. Great outdoor grill in the warmer months.

Tenuta's has the best deli in southwest Wi and Northern Ill. Fresh deli items and homemade pasta. Huge selection of cheese, wine and beer. A must stop in Kenosha.

Tenuta's has been in Kenosha for decades and decades. It is, quite possibly, the worst place in the world to walk into if you are hungry! Great Italian deli. Huge selection of incredible (and varied) wines---from cheap "jug" wine to the best of the best. Aisle after aisle of sometimes hard-to-find treats. Huge selection of Italian condiments, sauces, dressings, pastas,... More

I had heard so much about this place, maybe my expectations were too high, but this place was just ok. Couldn't purchase things like a fresh, non frozen pan of lasagne......only by the slice, albeit I could purchase multiples, or frozen. A few other items, same story. Food was not bad, but wouldn't rush back.
