Had a great meal there on Sat night from start to finish. First, we had a great waitperson. This made a huge difference. We brought some wine and he was very enthusiastic about our choices. We offered to share which he liked a lot. We started with 4 antipasta items. All were vey good. The egglplant Involtini and Bruschetta with heirloom tomato really stood out. We then shared a Margarita Pizza. I thought it good but not great. Probably the only item I had that night that wasn't outstanding. We then tried 3 pastas. All were fabulous. The Ravioli with butternut sqush was really amazing and very rich. Great browned butter sauce on it. I also really liked the parpadelle they offered as a special. I loved this place. The pastas were homemade and fresh. The prices were very reasonable. I will be going back. For dessert we had a tiramisu and a dark chocolate lava cake. Both were excellent. The coffee was brewed at too high a temp or it would have been better. This place is a real gem. It is in the old Giorgio location on 24th and Hennepin.

  1. I root for this place because it's in my neighborhood, but I agree on the pizzas. They've gone downhill since they opened.
