Our first time there. Love the building and decorations. But then we got the pasta. Overcooked and limp pasta. Bland sauce. Every grocery store in town has better sausage than theirs. Not worth the trip downtown.

Pretty good meal but not spectacular. The food came out a bit on the cold side. Service was quick but we also felt a bit rushed. Entrees brought while salad plates were still on the table and not quite finished. Same thing with dessert. Not sure what the rush was about because they weren't too busy. A small booth for... More

Great service, good food! Adults and children alike enjoyed the meal in this oil old building. Will come back next time we're in the neighborhood.

It's been many years since I've eaten at one of these and I had forgotten how good it was. The white clam sauce is my favorite. You should also try one of the creme sodas. Dessert (Spumoni or vanilla ice cream) is included in the price of the meal, as well as soup or salad. It was so good, we... More

Stopped by as we visited Minneapolis. Our server was very nice and friendly and fast! We enjoyed our experience eating here. Spaghetti and deserts were very good!

The ambiance is great, and large families were easily accommodated along with more intimate parties. But that's where the charm ends. The food was not much better than fast food Italian. The spaghetti (meat) sauce is very sour (acidic) and lacked any significant meat. The Italian sausage was bland, and the signature lasagna looked impressive, but failed to astound. I... More

From the bartender to the server, these people have no motivation. Ultimately we had 3 different servers taking orders, bringing food and drinks, etc,-- because we had to go search for any human who might be willing to take our order, check on food and/or bring our bill. Plan on the appetizer arriving shortly after your main food order arrives,... More

The building and interior are very nice. It is located near downtown and close to the Guthrie Theater and the Viking Stadium. It food was rather average, the waiter very good and the building very interesting. I would go back expecting average food but a nice place.

Thank Paul W
