A rustic restaurant with European flair will open Monday in the space that housed Wilshire for 14 years.

Greco replaced Wilshire’s wooden patio with Tuscan gravel, exposed its antique brick walls and added lush greenery, oil paintings and fireplaces throughout the many rooms of the restaurant to make guests feel as though they are dining in a home on the Amalfi coast.
