Authentic Italian Dining in the Twin Cities
Start with appetizers featuring a selection of bruschetta and pizza straight from wood-burning oven; then move on to a traditional Italian dinner menu of antipasto or insalata (salad), to primi piatto (pasta course), to secondi piatto (main course) and finally a delicious dolce (dessert).
Discover the truly Italian art of lingering over dinner with family and friends, making conversation and enjoying wine, in a setting that is both urban and relaxing.
