About the restaurant
Since 2018, we welcome Chef Philip Guardione and his Sicilian kitchen, Piccola Cucina. Philip cooks authentic Sicilian food which is an amalgam of Italian cuisine influenced by all the cultures that found Sicily as their crossroads. Simple, fresh ingredients authentically prepared suit the local environment of Red Lodge.

At Ox Pasture X Piccola Cucina, we are at the heart of Red Lodge’s artisan food scene, the locally raised world class beef is featured alongside produce and herbs raised in area farms. We work directly with the local farmers and ranchers to obtain the freshest and most seasonally appropriate ingredients.

This is the best restaurant I’ve eaten in for over a decade. Their basket of chips were beyond belief - warm, fluffy, crispy and dusted with Parmesan cheese instead of plain old salt. Everyone got a big basket upon being seated. That was the welcoming touch. Our meal was not only beautiful, but scrumptious. I had the Shawarma chicken and my friend had pork Verde tacos - to die for!!

Not only did we love our 56th anniversary dinner there, but my my husband gifted me with a gift card to The Patio for more fine times there. A Missoula treasure - your restaurant - well, and my husband, too. Thank you all.

About the restaurant
Abruzzo Italian Kitchen opened in December 2017. As is the Italian tradition, our focus is on the quality of our ingredients and simplicity of preparation. We cook by hand, from scratch, including all of our fresh pastas and wood fired pizzas. In addition to the Italian staples, we offer an extensive shared plates selection, grilled steaks, fresh seafood, and a small but decadent dessert list, all prepared in-house and served alongside an Italian-focused cocktail program and an Italian-centric wine list. Hospitality is the core of what we do: our staff is warm, genuine, knowledgeable, and attentive, and we pride ourselves on creating memorable experiences for every guest that walks through our doors.

Sustainability and creativity have always been at the top of SakeTome’s priorities, and in the seafood business, a reverence for the ocean is of utmost importance. We are trying to be as sustainable as possible, so we search out products from all over the world that share that same mindset. Japan, New Zealand, Iceland, Alaska, Maine, Scandinavia, and more. In line with sustainability, we try to use as much local produce as possible. Our micro-greens are grown specifically for us, right here in Missoula.

My son and his wife had not been there before. I was worried because he is a picky eater but he loved it all and wants to go again.
