HOUReview

Coltivare has all of the right elements for a great group dinner: excellent cocktails, a garden where you can enjoy said cocktails, and a shareable Italian menu. Located in The Heights, this Italian-American spot uses seasonal produce from its own backyard to make a big menu of snacks and small plates in addition to pizzas, pastas, and larger entrees. You should expect a wait, but that just gives you time to get a cocktail and find a bench in the garden while you strategize what to order.
