“Fantastic Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Everything from appetizers to desert was fantastic. Delicious, imaginative, cooked to perfection with attentive service and nice ambiance. Off the beaten path, but definitely worth the trip. Not a large restaurant, so reservations are recommended.

“Reliably good food served by a staff that cares”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2012

Have dined several times at this neighborhood Italian restaurant and have never been disappointed. The fresh pappardelle with duck ragu was delicious...though a bit heavy on the sauce. Portions are generous...try a few different plates and share. The ambiance is cozy, if not a bit too dark. Can get loud at peak hours. The waitstaff is great and very accommodating. Nice outside deck for summer dining.

“Great neighborhood spot with patio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

Tried this on a Sunday early evening with family. Sat outside to enjoy a beautiful Minnesota spring day. Service was very friendly and professional. Our server had good advice about menu items and wine selections. Food was well prepared and tasty. Prices very fair. We will return.
