Chef-owners Gabe and Katherine Thompson oversee Thompson Italian’s libations list with the same eye to detail as their food menu.

Bartender Hector Haran has put together a fi ne seasonal cocktail menu that might feature a cucumber-infused gin and tonic in warm weather, and a cranberry-rosemary number with vodka and prosecco in the fall.

General manager Kristen Carson (“KC”) Hamilton spearheads a brief but satisfying list of predominantly Italian wines (six white, four sparkling, three rosé, seven red) available by the glass and bottle, including tasty vintages such as a Sardinian Sella & Mosca “Terre Rare” ($12/$42) and Calabrian Scala Ciro Bianco ($13/$45).
