It wasn't super busy which was great we got amazing service, the atmosphere was so romantic and the food was amazing!! It was worth every penny! Met the owner and she was super sweet as well, plus the next time my... More

What is so difficult about preparing decent, honest Italian dishes? Probably good ingredients and a desire to please the palate of your clients. We chose meat ravioli with pesto cream sauce and the chicken parmesan special. Both were equally awful (NOTE: not awsome). The ravioli was tough and chewy, unlike any other I have ever eaten. It was filled with... More

The food, atmosphere, and service here are average and cliched. The food is just a step or two up from Olive Garden. If you want a so-so experience with boring dishes, eat here. If you want excellent Italian food and a wonderful dining experience, eat at Va Bene.

The appetizers and bread basket were of high quality. The entrees were good too, tasty and large portions. The wine was mediocre. There seemed to be a delay between any order and the delivery of the item. Not a deal breaker but disconcerning.

Where to start? Fabulous Italian food with a wide variety (we ate there 3 times in a week and didn't even dent the menu). The desserts are to die for...all homemade on site (try the éclair--yum!). Great pizza, the stuffed walleye is a must-have, really nice soups, the list goes on and on. If the weather is nice, they have... More

One of the highlights to our yearly visit to Duluth is to take my Mother who resides at St. Anne's and what ever female relatives are available and enjoy a leisurely lunch at this very consistent restaurant. I love the decor and the smells are incredible only to be surpassed by the wonderful selections of authentic Italian cuisine~ the view... More

We were in the area looking for a place for supper and stopped here on two different occasions. Both times the food and the service were exceptional. Its got a great view of the lake too. This is not a place for a quick meal - its a place to savor and I will stop there again any time I... More

Stopped here for lunch around one and we were pleased to see it wasn't too busy. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view. The server was pleasant and prompt. We felt the prices were slightly high for sandwiches because they only came with chips. Salad or fries were extra. We felt the pizza and salad prices were quite high.... More

Traveled to Two Harbors for a friend of mine's wedding and the groom's parents rented out the restaurant for the grooms dinner. I figured it would be just a quick and easy meal quickly prepared and served, especially with so many people with our party. Turns out, my expectations were completely wrong! Each of us received the same meal, two... More

We had a late breakfast here after a long walk around the lake, so we were famished. I had the Denver Florentine (not sure about the name of it) sandwich. It was delicious, but loaded with cheese, so I wouldn't recommend it if you have a cholesterol issue! My husband's omelet was also very good, but a little over-cooked for... More
