Popular casual neighborhood pasta restaurant near Lake Harriet. The pastas are freshly prepared and tasty - from the standards to more imaginative creations. Nice comfortable family run neighborhood standby. Eating at the horse-shoe counter gets a good view of the line cooks preparing meals. Friendly attentive service, reasonable prices and excellent food combine to make this one of the more noteworthy places in the Twin Cities to eat Italian or just to get a good meal. For years others have agreed - and it gets plenty busy with waits at prime eating times. Off-shoot from their original Italian Deli across the street.
