About Tesora

A Northwoods destination for amazing cuisine, woodfire pizza and conferences/events

Tesora, loosely translated, is Italian for “treasure.” This name was chosen because it reminds us to cherish our loved ones and our friendships and what better way to do that than creating memories over a wonderful meal! The idea of family and unity was the inspiration for opening Tesora.

When you dine with us, we hope you will feel as though you’re in an upscale, five-star, New York City restaurant but with sensible pricing and an assortment of dishes pleasing to each and every palate. Siren locals, Jake and Holly Mangelsen, partnered with Executive Chef Jon Dykeman to create this unique concept, virtually unheard of in a small town like Siren, Wisconsin.

Jake grew up in Siren and is a CPA by trade. Holly has owned and operated the Acorn Pantry kitchen store since 2006 and opened a second location in Rochester, Minnesota in the fall of 2013. The Mangelsens also own the Chattering Squirrel Coffee Cafe, located at the Shops at the Lodge in Siren.

Co-owner and Executive Chef Jon Dykeman has great passion for creating signature dishes and his high standards in the kitchen serve as the foundation for which he has built his career. Chef Dykeman’s vision is to bring unique, world-class cuisine to the region, offering an unexpected experience to locals and visitors alike. Chef’s passion for artfully arranged presentation and his exceptional taste, in addition to the heart and soul he puts into every dish, have diners experiencing love infused into every morsel.

At Tesora, we strive to provide superior service and an unforgettable culinary experience everyday to every guest. We look forward to your visit!
