Great food! Yummy

Best Italian food in Duluth! Many interesting dishes I always try one of their specials. It's best to call for a dinner reservation and the lower deck outside is the best seating!!! its casual but great date nite spot too

This is my husband and I's favorite place to go for date night. It is a small restaurant with a great atmosphere and beautiful view of the bridge/lake. The service is always at a high standard and the food is delicious. By far the best Italian restaurant in Duluth.

Have been visiting Duluth for over 40 years and finaly stopped at Va Bene Caffe with my Family. At first thought we would have to wait for a seat with a view of Lake Supiorer but surprise they have a hole lower level all with a great view. I was worried about my Dad finding something he would enjoy only... More

The food was so delicious I ate way too much. We had a big table and the waitress handled it with no problem. My coffee cup was always full. A highlight of the weekend. Loved it and will definitely go back next time we are in Dululth.

I visit for lunch and typically get a salad or sandwich. Last week I had a soup and salad. The lettuce is crisp and the salad has just the right amount of toppings. Love the goat cheese salad. The gelato is fantastic and homemade. Great view of the lake and Lift Bridge.

If you want good food this is the place in superior lake. Super view too. The service we had was excellent. Our hostess was Meghan and she was very obliging and gave us very good advice on the menu and incredibly friendly. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for the best.
