Timing is everything. When Steve Van Zeveren and his sister, Lisa, first were developing Uva Trattoria, their first choice was a downtown Coeur d'Alene location. Unfortunately, another restaurant just signed the lease, so Uva set up shop in a busy location adjacent to a Dairy Queen that didn't necessarily lend itself to fine dining or walk-ins.

So when the same downtown location became available this spring, Uva's owners jumped on it. They spruced up the place, revamped the bar and relocated into their new downtown home over the course of a few sweltering days in June.

In the kitchen, Steve has added specials like chicken saltimbocca ($17) or his self-named pasta: baked penne in Gorgonzola cream sauce with spinach, tomatoes and chicken ($16). Lighter fare includes caprese salad ($9) and bruschetta ($7). Also look for daily $10 lunch specials, such as housemade meatball sandwich with a side Caesar and fountain drink.
