Optimo is a family-owned restaurant and cafe located in the historic Viroqua Public Market of Viroqua, Wisconsin. We serve a mix of American and international classic dishes that change seasonally... burgers and pizza to sirloin kebabs and trout pate... catfish po-boys to veggie stirfry.
We cater to vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian preferences too. *Everything* we do is delicious and made in-house from scratch by a team of culinary masters with a collective 100 years of cooking experience.
Optimo deals directly with area farmers who deliver right to the kitchen. Most of our food is raised/grown within ten minutes of the restaurant.
It is these local ingredients (and the chef's imagination) that determine what we conjure up that week. Our chefs make virtually everything in house: ketchup, salad dressings, flavored butters... everything.
Not feeling that adventurous - no worries, you can always order a tasty pizza or a cheeseburger.
To drink, Optimo stocks Wisconsin craft beers and "Upper Mississippi Valley" regional wines.
