Foursquare Tips

  • Wait staff is fantastic and their happy hour ain't too bad either! A must visit for the south Minneapolis hood.
  • Their menu changes with pizza, pasta, and choices of seafood. Tuesday Night Date Night-$20/3 courses. This Italian fare is served in a simple relaxed atmosphere.
  • I adore this place. On Mondays and Tuesdays they have 1/2 bottles of wine and $20 per person date night special including appetizer, entree, and desert :) Also the atmosphere is perfect for a date.
  • Voted Best Italian Restaurant of 2013! It's not new, but it's definitely fresh. It's not flashy, but it still sparkles.This chef-driven restaurant shows that sometimes simplicity trumps all.
  • Crazy good food!!! half price bottles Monday's really good wine-list
  • Cheap date night on Tuesdays is a steal!
  • No one talks about the pizza. It's some of the best I've had anywhere in the cities.
  • The service is terrible, 20% gratuity is already included so they do not work for the tips.
  • Great food! Date night is always a good time. My only complaint is that the staff didn't know anything about the 4square special offer and when I became mayor they didn't hook me up with a free meal:(
  • Favorite waiter is Tom. He knows his wines and the food. The bread is to die for... Ok everything is!
  • Great food, but the service needs improvement.
  • Chocolate oblivion is absolutely the way to go. For entrees, the menu is always changing so check out their site.
  • Go Mon or Tues before 6 and get 1/2 bottle wines!
  • Get the spaghetti and meatballs with Mother Sauce. So tasty and perfect for a chilly night.
  • Excellent cocktails, menu and a friendly staff
  • Poor comm. between staff. 3 orders delivered wrong. Waited an additional 20 min to correct, they took away the wrongfully placed food, what? None of us impressed by our food for the purchase price.
  • Bruschetta sampler, spaghetti and meatballs and the best pizza crust!
  • Cool atmosphere and decent food. Hides well in a group of fine chain restaurants...looking at you, Rosa Mexicana.
  • Sunday brunch is the best! Amazing spread and bottomless mimosas or bloodies. It gets really busy though, make sure you call ahead for a reservation.
  • Outstanding little Italian place in South Minneapolis. The food is fresh and flavorful. Great bruschetta sampler.
