A walk through Tenuta's Deli in Kenosha, Wisconsin, opens an incredible foodie opportunity to explore authentic Italian food items and products. Since 1950, Tenuta's has provided the community with a warm, mom and pop location to pick up the perfect ingredients for their Italian influenced cooking as well as prepared items.


Quality and authentic Italian ingredients abound at Tenuta's in Kenosha, Wisconsin! Can you believe how many olive oils there are?

When you first enter Tenuta's, that comfortable, old time, familiar local business feel envelopes you. During our visit, I really felt transported back to the grocery stores of my youth. My father used to take me to a bakery for a special treat, so I really felt nostalgia emerge when I peeked at the dessert counter. Of course, I was totally tempted by the cannolis! Italian cookies, cakes and more all looked incredible.

Tenuta's bakery counter is full of baked treats including a variety of cannoli flavors.
So many baked treats -- how can you pick one?
I am totally a cheese lover, so e also savored perusing the cheese section. So many great choices:

Who can forget the Panettone? I had no idea there were this many choices! Choices is a good word to describe what you will find at Tenuta's. Over and over again I was surprised by the plethora of choices of specialty Italian ingredients and products at Tenuta's.

Tenuta's roots began when John N. Tenuta left Italy to settle in the USA in 1920. His dream was to start his own business which came to fruition when Tenuta's Delicatessen opened April 1, 1950. Since then, Tenuta's has been through remodels and expansions to accommodate a growing depth of specialty items.


Tenuta's also has a grill which was not open when we visited over the winter. Tenuta's makes its own Italian sausage so quite a treat! Wines, basalmic vinegars and so much more make a visit to Tenuta's Deli an amazing experience. I can't wait to return for another foodie adventure!
