First night in Minneapolis, and TOSF was nearby. I went with convenience. I had great service from a very thoughtful waiter who checked out all of the food in accordance with my allergy concerns. However, it's not terrific Italian food. But if you like everything slathered with as much cheese as possible, this is your place.

This is a good place if you like spaghetti and big portions. The ambience is factory like. Lots of young folks there for prom the night we went. Food is nothing special. Service is okay. A bit noisy.

We go here off and on as a family can eat affordable. Love the ambiance of the place. Neat old warehouse type building. Usually the food is up to par... this last time our pasta seemed a bit overcooked but nothing major that would have it sent back. Service was good and we were there for a birthday so they sang, which is a nice tough.
We will go back again as they are usually consistent. The overdone noodles was hopefully just an off night since it is not something we have typically had. Also nice that you get a salad and ice cream included with each meal and not for an extra cost... even the kids can have a salad.

Dishes looked a little dismal and we received a couple dirty glasses. Food was edible but pasta was under cooked and protein portion was a little on the small side. Service was slow. Ambience was a plus. Overall, we were a little underwhelmed

The building itself was very unique. The waitress was awesome (can't remember her name though!). Great food at a great price. Every meal came with ice cream at the end. Wonderful experience-can't wait to go back!
