About a year ago, Gislimberti and his wife Siobhan opened their restaurant in an adobe. There's fine art from the Taos Art Museum on the walls, and Northern Italian specialties on the menu. Gislimberti is an expert in wild mushrooms and picks them nearby for use in many menu specialties. He also teaches classes on wild mushrooms. Casa Cordova has been recognized as one of the best restaurants in New Mexico.
