We love Il Desco's focus on bringing family and community together around the table. With a warm and inviting atmosphere that is (at once) both modern and slightly rustic -- their contemporary take on classic Italian fare makes this culinary addition to the Riverside neighborhood an absolute must-try.

With a 20-seat communal table, intentionally mismatched seating and rustic accents donning the walls of this modern Italian restaurant on the corner of Park and King Street in Riverside, Il Desco founders Jacques Klempf, Fraser Burns and Mark Frisch wanted a concept that served up exceptional Italian cuisine in a warm and welcoming social atmosphere.

And they've achieved it.

Not only does the decor lend itself to lively and spirited discussion amongst patrons, the menu is nothing short of impressive, serving up palate pleasing plates such as Rabbit Lasagna with Sage Béchamel, Roasted Beet Penne, Spagetti Tacos, and Wood-fired Branzino -- showcasing something truly unique and interesting for virtually every palate.
