Was really surprised how much I liked it. They have an excellent cheese there (I have forgotten the name). Good bread and soup. Recommend.

Visited her for a meal between afternoon and evening marching band competitions. Waited a long time and was disappointed when we got our food. They claim they were caught off guard by the crowd. I think they need to check the USBank stadium calendar!!!

We arrived at 5:20 for our 5:30 reservations this evening. We were seated within 10 minutes. That was the best part of the meal. It took about 20 minutes for the waiter to come and take our order. About 35 minutes later we asked the waiter if our food would be coming soon. He said he didn't know and said... More

While waiting to be seated, we had fun taking our picture in several unique, plush, brightly colored chairs and sofas. Our waiter was great and interacted with us a lot. the food was delicious and well timed. The gelato was the best i... More

The food here is very bland. There is 10 things you could do with the basic sauce to make it better. Very disappointed. The service is pretty good. The building and décor is cool. Otherwise I'd stay away honestly.

This is a nice location for this Italian chain restaurant. Nothing fancy, but good, reasonably priced meals. Good place to take children who may not like the fancier places downtown.

The service was poor. We waited for 20 minutes for our drinks and our appetizer of garlic bread. We then waited another 15 minutes for our salad and soup. Then another 30 for our food. We asked for drink refills and another order of bread. We waited about 10 minutes only to have our server finally stop by and we... More

Came for dinner after Vikings game. Their lasagna is the best ever!! Had great service and very good food. The free dessert was a perfect end to a delicious meal.

Almost every dish was served with meat. No vegetarian lasagna or egg plant parm. I had the pasta with marinara and it was average. Our toddler had the Mac and cheese and I am pretty sure the cheese sauce was velveata (so). The beer menu was lame. With as many craft beer places around I am not sure why any... More
