Il Vicino has been bringing a little piece of Italy to Wichita since 1992 through artisanal wood-fired pizzas, Italian sodas, and handmade paninis on focaccia bread. The brainchild of Greg Arkin, Rick Post, and Tom White, the first Il Vicino opened in Albuquerque and has since grown to 10 locations, two of which are found in Wichita.
Fifteen different pizzas come with such toppings as roasted red peppers, goat cheese, or fiery shrimp. A selection of fine wines or a glass of hand-crafted root beer enhance each dish, and a selection of desserts, including a tiramisu or rich cannoli, complete the dining experience.
Both Wichita locations boast warm tones on walls stocked with beverage bottles and patio tables that offer al fresco dining. Both locations also feature large wood-burning ovens decorated with mosaic tiles or pieces of stacked wood.
