This is a very upscale, tastefully decorated small restaurant in Duluth. Prices are very reasonable for the décor and service. I would say, $10 to $20. Everything is home made by an Italian family. You can sit on the inside porch area and look out at the lake and the aerial lift bridge, or inside by the fireplace. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about all menu items.
I had a Panini and my friend had a pasta, plus we each had a sinful dessert. I definitely want to go back. The only drawback was having to park at a meter that only went to one hour 20 minutes. A tip is that about 2 blocks down in front of the Pickwick, are longer meters. Or better yet, just park in Fitgers ramp and shop their shops later. Some purchases offer free parking. Or--if a nice day, park at the Rose Garden free parking lot at 14th avenue east and London Rd and walk about 8 blocks to Va Bene.
