Menu

Inspired Italian

While house-made pasta and traditional Italian gravy are two pillars of Chiesa’s menu, options are available for Vegan, Vegetarian and Gluten Free diets.          Our menu changes quarterly to highlight locally grown selections. Weekly fish and ravioli specials round out our menu.
