Amazing food ... fun atmosphere!

The very fresh pasta dishes were expertly prepared and served hot even with our table of ten on a busy Friday night. The fois gras tortellini was rich and incredible, the sweetbreads cooked perfectly, and all the other dishes we shared were delectible. Bar scene was fun while very noisy and an... read more

The very fresh pasta dishes were expertly prepared and served hot even with our table of ten on a busy Friday night. The fois gras tortellini was rich and incredible, the sweetbreads cooked perfectly, and all the other dishes we shared were delectible. Bar scene was fun while very noisy and an overall wonderful experience by our group.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis and especially in the North Loop. I visit quite frequently. Tonight I brought guests with me to dine. As always the food was great but the service was mediocre at best. Our waited was in another world - drinks were served to the wrong persons - repeatedly - so were salads... More

This place is a real find! The menu is extensive, and the many pasta plates (not the secondi's) are offered in two sizes. My wife and I shared 4 small plates and were quite satisfied. The complimentary butter bean appetizer is really tasty, with a hint of chili? Not overpowering. We then shared the Crab Ravioli (yumm) and the Charred... More

Had dinner here on a recent family trip to Minneapolis. Had the soft egg & lobster bruschetta, as other reviewers have recommended. It was wonderful! It was like scrambled eggs with lobster on toast. The ricotta and roasted tomato bruschetta was also great. I had the crab ravioli. It had a nice cream sauce made with shrimp stock. It was... More

The house Margarita was one of the best I've had! Stopped in for a drink with coworkers. Worth the parking challenge of downtown!

Recommend getting a reservation, although if it's a week night and a couple or small group you probably won't have too long of a wait for a table, or you could grab a spot at the bar. It's also pretty fun to sit at the pasta bar where you can see into the kitchen and feel the energy. Everything I've... More

We just go back here for every thing we can think to celebrate and if we can't think of anything...we go anyway! The menu is huge. They have bread and a tasty bean app that is complimentary. We dip our bread in the oil left in the bean bowl. My favorite starter is the soft eggs with lobster by far... More

I tried to book reservation for dinner before our trip but the restaurant was booked so quickly. I could only booked for 5:30 PM slot. We arrived 30 mins late due to traffic and unfamiliar with new place. However, they still let us have our table. The restaurant staffs were very friendly and provided excellent services quickly even when the... More

We booked to celebrate my 31st birthday and waited for our table at the bar. Wanted to start with some cocktails and were asked for IDs. We presented our European Union driver's licenses and were told by the bartender that he cannot serve us based on those, saying he would only accept US/Canadian driver's licenses, but everyone else needs to...
