“Best Pasta in MPLS, Great Drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Staff is friendly and accomodating. Definitely the best pasta in the Twin Cities. I really dislike heavy, saucy, traditional pasta dishes; this place has sooo many fun delicious options. They have great drinks too. I found the wait staff to be very friendly. A great date place! Make a reservation though!

“Good Food But...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

We enjoyed the food but had a hard time overcoming the fact that our group of 3 had to wait an hour past our confirmed reservation time. Would recommend the soft eggs and lobster.

“Phenominal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Great food and atmosphere. The two of us ordered two small dishes and one appetizer and that was more than enough for the two of us. We visited on a Sunday afternoon and was there shortly after it opened. It filled up pretty quickly. Service was pretty good too.

“Neither A Bar, Nor Grass.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Love this place. Did not expect them to be pasta experts when I went the first time. Anything gnocchi is what you want to order. Come hungry and with a spirit of sharing. 112 Eatery (sister restaurant) is still my favorite, but these folks show you a good time.

“BLG may be the best food in Mpls”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

BLG is so delicious it's tough to say that another Italian restaurant is better. So many different options, with many different price points. The bruschetta options are so amazing. The lobster and soft cooked egg is so rich and creamy, outstanding. The charred onion and goat cheese is super tasty as well. The best dish in all of Minneapolis is the Gnocchi. Orange zest, shaved cauliflower, parm, and perfect little gnocchis. I order this every time, sometimes i wont share. But really everything on the menu is good. Great pastas. Cool atmosphere as well.
