Tenuta’s Italian Restaurant was founded by Cesare and Antonia Tenuta after they moved from the southern tip of Italy to America. Bringing with them a wealth of great homemade recipes and ideas, the Tenutas decided to share their passion for quality food with the great people in and around Bayview and opened Tenuta’s Italian Restaurant.
Today you can try a huge variety of classic dishes in an inviting and comforting environment. From intimate dinners to corporate work parties, we want to be a part of your life every day. When we say from our family to yours, we mean it!
A Part of the Community
At Tenuta’s Italian Restaurant, we care deeply about the community around us. While we provide quality food and great catering opportunities, we know that being an active member of the community takes more than that. From charity walks to special event catering, we take pride in making history every day. Take a look at some of the events we have been involved with recently.
