Description: We are a neighborhood Italian restaurant. We serve Authentic Old World Classics with an Uptown Italian Twist. We ask our facility to work harder, we ask our staff to work harder and we ask our ingredients to work harder. When you come eat your likely to be recognized at the door, called by name and for sure appreciated. Our dinning room offers the best variety of tables in the Twin Cities. We can easily handle romantic two tops tucked away privately or tables in the main and subsequent dinning areas up to 40 and 50. We have our own parking in the back of the restaurant, arriving here is convenient. When Spring comes our rooftop deck is incredible. The only Cedar Rooftop Deck in the Twin Cities. Enjoying updated Old World Classics with a wonderful cocktail on a Rooftop Deck in Uptown Minneapolis is second to none.

Happened upon this restaurant by accident. Pizza oven was down, but server was accommodating and offered other suggestions. Pistachio Gnocchi was phenomenal and the bread--yum!

I was there on a weekend night with my husband and two teenage daughters. The tables are VERY close together, and the place was packed. The table right next to us was a large, loud and boisterous group, so it was difficult to hear my family talk with each other. Actually, the whole place had a "buzz" of constant noise, and I would not consider this for a quiet romantic dinner place. My husband enjoyed his chicken parm, and the lasagna was nice and meaty without too much cheese or sauce. One daughter ordered fettucine alfredo, and she liked it, but I thought the texture was more like when this type of dish is reheated rather than a smooth, creamy sauce. The other daughter ordered essentially spaghetti and meatballs. There was a lot of meat, but the noodles and sauce were not anything remarkable. The bread was warm but nothing special, and we only had olive oil and no dried pepper or other spices to add to it. It overall was good, but I'd probably want to try another Italian restaurant if ever in the area again and wouldn't feel compelled to go back.

I wish I could give 1/2 circles for this review. While the food is quite, the poor service brings down the overall rating. My family stopped in for dinner on Sunday night about 6 pm. The restaurant was virtually empty at that time. We were asked if we had a reservation and when we said no, the hostess looked around and said she might be able to find us a table. From that point on, we were treated to indifferent service, wrong orders, a long wait for our food, interrupted food delivery, sullen wait staff and an attitude that just screamed they didn't want our business. And yet, the food was quite good.

The restaurant has a delightful bar, the ambiance is good with big windows, great light, quiet dining room made for conversation with people, and roof top deck. The food is made with fresh ingredients and the pasta and entrees are tasty. Appetizers are hit and miss with the Calamari not cooked enough, served limp and barely fried to Caprese Salad with excellent Balsamic drizzled heavily over the cheese imparting great flavor. Happy Hour weekend prices make the apps much more valuable.

Still, the service and attitude, dragged down the whole meal. With so many places to eat in Uptown, we won't be back here any time soon.

This is a fantastic restaurant! The feel is comfortable Italian bistro type, the server was awesome, and there is parking behind, which was a lifesaver because we were all from out of town and it was a VERY busy Saturday in uptown! The food was absolutely delicious, perfectly presented, and had wonderful flavor. I can't wait to go back!

We had excellent service and very good food. I wanted good Italian made with fresh ingredients, somewhere quiet enough to talk. This fit the bill perfectly. Many of their pasta dishes can be made GF. The atmosphere was in between a nice restaurant and a quaint cafe, friendly and comfortable.
