Excellent food and atmosphere. The menu is a little drawn out and kind of confusing. The waitress was super helpful and gave some great recommendations. I enjoyed most of what we ordered but I'm not a huge Italian food fan. Definitely a nice place to go for special occasions. Very busy so make a reservation ahead of time.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the world. All of the food is so fresh and delicious. My favorite is the carbonara or caramelized onion/goat cheese bruschetta. MAKE RESERVATIONS, the wait can be awful.

Me and my wife finally made it to this place. It consistently ranks in the top ten Twin Cities restaurants so we wanted to check it out. Reservations should be made. It totally met all expectations. We were very delighted and will be back for sure. You will not regret coming here.

We enjoyed a delicious dinner. It was busy yet the server was attentive and knowledgeable, and our meals came quickly. It's a restaurant for everyone - there were families, large and small groups, and couples too. All ages in a relaxed atmosphere. I would recommend a reservation. They offer smaller portions which is an excellent idea !

One of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis!! You can choose to get the smaller portion sizes, so you can try multiple dishes! The gnocchi is definitely one of my favorite dishes... but I really don't think you can go wrong with this menu. Great place for a date night or to take friends or family!

If you don't know this already, Minneapolis is a great eating destination. This is one of the best. Gnocchi should not be missed!

This has consistently been a fail proof "go to" spot to take family and out of town guests for taste experiences that will require a "moment of silence" as the flavors explode in your mouth. I never tire of the eggs and lobster bruschetta - a must try dish that you'll not experience anywhere else. Make reservations well in advance... More

We enjoyed four small plated, the eggs and lobster is always excellent, The charred sea scallops were very good, but I think the best of the four this time was the roasted tomato and ricotta bruschetta. We shared four large plates, unfortunately the pappardelle veal ragu was a little light on the meat sauce. The best large plate was the... More

Food exceptional, service fell short due to manager Jay. Reservation for 4 people via OpenTable 8:30 on a Saturday night. Finally seated at 9:10pm. Comped on one bruschetta order that we were not given a chance to choose. Manager Jay lacked empathy and made us feel less than special when he said "you have the best seat in the house"... More
