Il Desco

2665 Park St
Jacksonville, Florida 32204
Phone: (904) 232-8545

A lively gathering spot in Jacksonville’s historic Riverside neighborhood, Il Desco offers a modern take on classic Italian cuisine. Featuring fresh and seasonal ingredients, the menu showcases wood-fired pizzas, pastas made in-house daily; Rabbit Lasagna with sage béchamel, wild mushrooms, Castelvetrano olives, rosemary and thyme; a raw bar packed with fresh oysters, clams and locally caught fish; and an instant cult favorite – spaghetti tacos made with braised short rib ragu, escarole and topped with pecorino romano.

Enjoy Il Desco’s subtle sophistication while you dine in a cozy banquette, your own table or at the 20-seat communal table built with refurbished centuries-old wood salvaged from the Cowford Chophouse, another concept in the FAR group’s restaurant portfolio.
