CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Anika Williams and Jasmin Agovic recently took over L’Osteria Mondello with plans to bring European flavors to their Wyoming customers.
Agovic appeared before the City Council on Monday during a public hearing on his and Williams’s request for a restaurant liquor license for the restaurant. He told the council that he and his wife, Williams, became the owners of the restaurant in January, and they plan to open it within the next couple of months.
They’re making the request for the liquor license because they believe it will enhance customers’ experience. L’Osteria Mondello will offer a menu that’s about 65% to 70% Italian, but other dishes will have roots in Spain, France, Greece, Germany, Austria and other European countries, Agovic said.
“We would like to bring Europe to Cheyenne,” Agovic said, adding they plan to offer European wines and spirits to complement the food.
“Lot cheaper to go there than to fly to Europe,” Mayor Patrick Collins said, wishing him good luck with the endeavor.
The business’s lease is in effect through June 2028, and the landlord has granted permission to sell alcoholic beverages if L’Osteria Mondello is permitted by the city to do so, according to city documents.
Agovic was the only speaker during public comment, and no councilmembers spoke for or against the request. The liquor license application, attached below, has been referred to the Finance Committee, which will meet at noon Monday, May 15.
