Italian for "on a hillside," Fianco opened in Lakeview in June. With exposed brick walls and tables draped in butcher paper, the storefront restaurant serves dishes cooked up with locally sourced ingredients. Menu options include a hand-torn Caprese salad, bison ravioli with sweet-corn-Parmesan sauce, and duck with house-made potato gnocchi; for dessert, there are Italian donuts with fresh berries and a rotating array of gelato flavors. The venue seats 50 inside; a patio provides seating for an additional 16.
