Met with previous work colleagues for lunch. There were at least 15 or more people. The staff was excellent, providing individual bills. The lunch was excellent, many choices of soups and salads. Basic salads available and could add chicken or shrimp. Probably as many different orders as people. Everyone pleased.

This is one of our favorite restaurants in St. Paul. It never disappoints. Sat in the bar and our server Zee was great! Had our usual capasante which is always a must. Tried a new summer shrimp salad that was fabulous. Good for casual night, or a fancier night out.

We stopped here one evening, a bit unplanned, and were blown away with the fantastic food! It was a lobster sauce, and to die for. The outdoor patio is also a beautiful place to relax and enjoy a MN summer. We cant wait to go back!

We visited here for our wedding anniversary and it was really a mixed bag experience. We ordered a bottle of wine in the bar since we were 45 mins early for our dinner reservation. The place was already packed at 6:15 on a Saturday night. Very crowded in the bar and dining area. We enjoyed our wine at the bar... More

We had pre-ordered six platters of antipasto which were waiting for us as we arrived. The... More

This Italian eatery was very disappointing. As a party of 4 we sampled different entrees, but had the same opinion: mediocre with sides that were undercooked and uninspired. We sat next to a decorative mirror that was filthy and added to the lousy ambiance. Service was average at best. Poor value for prices. There are far better places to eat... More

Had dinner recently and it was short of just okay, and for what we paid it was not a good value. My main entree veal was very good, but the sides were terrible. Why would you serve scalloped potatoes with an Italian veal dish versus serving a side of pasta or polenta? Also, the vegetables were an afterthought and cold.... More

A few weeks in advance I had made a 6:00 pm reservation for our group of 12 and had been told at the time of reservation we could not reserve a spot on the outside terrace, that it was first come first served. Okay, no problem, I understood that. But upon our group's arrival the gal at the desk was... More
