Great lunch spot

Went for lunch and the food was great. The two associates with me had the lunch special which was a chicken breast sandwich with a basalmic vinegar sauce and other good things. The salads are great. But far better than the food is the excellent servers they have who work only during the day.

I've never been disappointed in the dozen times I've eaten here. There are three of these restaurants in Minnesota (Morris, Fergus Falls, St. Joe) and they're all good places to eat. In fact, in each case they are the best restaurant in their respective cities. Though a little more expensive than the surrounding options for dining in rural minnesota, you... More

Very warm and welcoming dining area! Interesting and varied menu. Excellent patio dining. Nice wine list. A bit over the top in pretentiousness, but worth the wait for a table. Service and prices are acceptable. I will return, and I give it two "acceptable" thumbs up! Ciao!

We (3 of us ) went for a late lunch around 2:00. Carrie the bartender/ server was great! Tuesday's are half off bottles of wine! We had one after she let us sample a couple of whites to decide. Nice!! Service and food was fantastic ! Sandwich, salad, pasta, bread all were very good. Sitting outside on the patio enjoying... More

We arrived about 6pm Friday, two diners. Patio was full, inside seating was almost empty. We were told we could not be seated for 40 minutes as they were holding tables and booths to control kitchen load. We chose to sit in the bar area (which was also wide open) Servers were gathering amongst themselves but not providing service. Finally... More

Very average wine list for an Italian restaurant. Service was SLOW, SLOW. Orders came out wrong and when it did arrive it was just OK. Our second time trying and most likely won't be back. Still looking for a good wine list in the St. Cloud area.

We went here for dinner on our anniversary. Decided to start with bruschetta for an app but waitress said they just ran out. Which seems ridiculous on a Friday night at 6:30 pm. So we ordered breadsticks with mozzarella in them. They were very good. My wife ordered a calzone with Canadien bacon and pineapple. It was good. I ordered... More

When they brought out the $14 five-cheese tortellini I actually laughed at how few pieces of pasta were on the plate. It was like a dollar a tortellini. It was like I was on some candid camera show it was so comically small. I might get this if they were handmade or something, but they are clearly just the frozen... More

The wait staff in this restaurant is very pleasant and helpful. We had both lunch, as a couple and then brought he family here for dinner a few nights later. Everyone really enjoyed their food. The Chicken Parmesan was definitely a hit, and might I say, huge! The good news, is you get to take it home and enjoy it... More

Overall, the restaurant is very nice and the food is very good. I liked the ambiance of the decor, but because the ceilings were kind of high and the layout very open, conversation was limited. There weren't all that many people there, but everything echoed and I could hear other diners' conversations clearly. Our server was friendly, but service was... More
