Dear Valued Guests and Friends of Un Caffe’ Italian Bistro:

Chef Cheri’ and I have decided to sell Un Caffe’ Italian Bistro and we are using a Reno business broker to facilitate the sale on our behalf.  We will cease operations by month end, but we will be open for normal lunch and dinner service from Tuesday through Saturday during the last week of January.

We have been open for almost four years and what a journey it has been, but all good things must come to an end.  I am moving back to Pennsylvania in late March or early April for several months to look after my older brother who has become quite ill.  Chef Cheri’ will be looking at culinary opportunities in cities such as New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, and Las Vegas.  She wants to pursue her passion, continue her education, and work in those cities that celebrate the food culture here in America, and perhaps even in Italy.

We truly believe Un Caffe’ is a unique restaurant, totally different from other restaurants in Reno.  We also believe Un Caffe’ has become a very special destination restaurant over the years, celebrated for its authentic Italian food, its distinctive wine list, and its unforgettable ambience.  Our goal was to create exceptional dining experiences for our guests that included our “Feast of the Seven Fishes” on Christmas Eve, our “Culinary Adventures in Italy” Wine Dinners, our monthly wine tastings, and Thursday Night at the Movies.  We believe we succeeded.

Chef Cheri’ and I want to thank our friends and valued guests for dining with us over the last almost four years.  We truly appreciate your friendship, your business, and your extraordinary support; we could not have done it without you.  Chef Cheri’ and I both hope you will come by to say goodbye and to enjoy her dishes once more that she makes with love and culinary passion.


Warmest regards,

Chef Cheri’ Rhodes, Executive Chef & Owner
