Great patio!

Spent a great afternoon with a girlfriend. The patio was perfect and when the wind came up, our waitress turned on the overhead heater. The service was perfect from the time we arrived to our departure 3 hours later. (No, we didn't take up a prime time table). If you go a little later in the... read more

I was in Minnesota for 12 days for business. We went to dinner here 2 nights of that trip. Great food and wine selection. Fabulous wait staff!

Came here for a romantic dinner. We did make reservations, but it wasn't too terribly full that I thought we required them. The atmosphere was nice and tastefully done. Our waitress was good with suggestions. We split a bottle of wine to start. Our entrees were the walleye (which the waitress suggested to me as I have never had walleye... More

I was impressed with dinner here! There was an ample variety of choices and the dishes were tasty. Everyone in our party was happy with the food. An added bonus was that they offer desserts in mini sizes... So I had a bit of tiramisu that tasted amazing but didn't include the guilt that normally comes with ordering dessert! :-)

Food was fantastic. Had the halibut special which was outstanding. The filet was very well done. Topped off with a delicious molten lava cake. Was a perfect ending to a perfect meal!

I come here once a week for lunch and usually have the fish special and the organic greens. It is so hard to find healthy food at restaurants in America. I love the fact that I know I am eating healthy, getting outstanding service, and dining in such a lovely atmosphere. Caio Bella is #1 on my dining list!

Was going to go to Olive Garden but Lauren at Residence Inn recommended this to my husband, and even though it's way more than I'm used to spending it was worth it!

We enjoyed an excellent meal and wine. The red pepper linguine with seared scallops was to die for! Highly recommend.

The service was exceptional, as well as the food! Went there for a special occasion. Ordered a bottle wine and the Linguini. Delish!

This is a great restaurant! It was my second time dining here and not my last. It has a great atmosphere, a very cool restaurant. The service is really good - great menu knowledge and very good interaction with the table. He guided us through the menu and made great suggestions. Very good wine list including wines by the glass.... More
