PENSIERO RISTORANTE, Evanston, IL
Pensiero Ristorante blends contemporary Italian fare and timeless classics inspired by the seasons, artfully presented, with many of its ingredients sourced locally and from organic farms; paired with an award winning wine list.
The elegant dining room invites you into a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere where our team of professional, friendly servers guides you through a memorable evening.
Pensiero is located in the historic Margarita Inn, where the previous occupant, Va Pensiero, delighted diners and critics alike for over 20 years. As Va Pensiero departed, Margarita Inn owner Michael Pure decided to reopen with a fresh new approach, less formal, more inviting, but still dedicated to providing his customers with a delicious meal and an indelible experience. Just voted in the “Top Ten Restaurants” in the North Shore, Pensiero welcomes you to our home.
