About Us

Quality Is the Best Recipe

We Love What We Do

La Fresca Cucina is a fresh, new take on Italian dining in Silver Lake. Formerly Binanti's Taste of Italy, the Binanti's have passed the torch to their daughter Alexandria Binanti and Chef David Martinez to create a whole new experience. 

With Chef David Martinez taking the helm with over 15 years of experience across the globe, then working for celebrity chefs Tony Montuano, Gordon Ramsey, and David Chang, he's proud to be bringing elevated cuisine to his home roots of Wisconsin. Partnering with Alexandria Binanti, you willl find a balance of the Binanti family traditional recipes and the excitement of fresh new flavors. They are excited to be taking the traditional Italian recipes we all know and adding a modern twist for a great experience with their seasonal wine lists. 

Working with locally source ingredients, with an emphasis on fresh, seasonal flavors, they will be offering rotating menus, fresh made pasta of the week features, and some of the Binanti classics making their way on specialties. 

New offerings also include Sunday Private Dining for parties and catering events, farm to table dinners partnering with Meyers Farm, cooking classes, and expansive catering services. Stay tuned for a calendar of events from their pop up dining scene throughout SouthEastern WI and check out new catering menus and services coming online soon!
