Cucina Italian Restaurant

Overlooking the tranquil waters of Wood Lake, this charming, open-concept retreat presents a delectable collection of artfully crafted Italian cuisine. The chef features simple, fresh takes on Italian favorites using seasonal ingredients, including handcrafted pastas, artisan pizzas and wood-fire grilled entrées. It’s also a choice spot for an expertly grilled steak and the only place in Sheboygan County that offers a raw bar.

A Lovely Pairing: Oysters & Franciacorta

Available Now through May 11, 2017
Celebrate the long-awaited warmth of spring with the delightful flavor combination of fresh oysters complemented by a refreshing glass of Franciacorta, Italy’s premier sparkling wine. Franciacorta, which is an area within the Lombardia region, was granted DOCG status, the highest level of Italian wine classification, in 1995.  It is fermented in wooden casks and then again in the bottle for at least 18 months, according to stringent laws.  This is known as Metodo Classico, the same method as Méthode Champenoise in Champagne and is commonly considered to be the highest quality technique. Wines in the Metodo Classico style very much resemble traditional French Champagne or Spanish Cava. The result is a rich, creamy complexity. It’s the perfect pair to oysters. Special offer: Enjoy five oysters with a glass of Ca’ del Bosco Franciacorta for $30, or five oysters and a glass of highly-rated prosecco for $15.
