With a view overlooking Lake Superior and great authentic Italian food you can't go wrong. Our server was excellent and the food was served very quickly considering they were busy. We had to wait only 5 minutes for a table though.

The homemade pasta, salads and gelato was so good. Highly recommend the potato gnocchi with both the cheese and red sauce. My husband and I started and ended our trip to Duluth here- would definitely go back!!!

I live about 3 hours from Duluth, MN and travel there at least twice per year just to have a quick getaway and eat at our all-time favorite restaurant! Make sure you make reservations on the weekend or you'll end up standing by the door...More
