I have been to this restaurant 3+ times and it has always been good. The service is very very good, and the restaurant is the perfect size upstairs. I have never been downstairs, but I believe large parties go down there. The food is great, the best you can get by canal park.

Every dish is made from scratch, if you love pasta this is it. Good salad selections, front row seat to Lake Superior.

Enjoy their amazing homemade herb bread dipped in a delicious olive oil. For an appetizer, I've had their crostini's and spinach dip -- all delicious. I've only ever had their fresh pasta (they also serve meat and fish entrees, as well as pizza and paninis) and each dish has been perfection. Ambiance is upscale casual and if you can get a table on the porch you are practically sitting over Lake Superior. They have a full bar, a great selection of wines, and a little gelato bar with fun exotic flavors. There's also a little Italian market area if you want to purchase some Italian foods. Great place to meet friends or for a relaxed date.

Amatriciana to rival the best I've had! Numerous pasta dishes, creative appetizers; pear, goat cheese costini drizzled with honey; excellent gelato as well. Entrees away from the pastas were limited, so go with one of the pastas. Wine list was ok, but nothing outstanding. For a $20 corkage fee you can bring your own. Manager offered to decant my bottle without my asking. Service was efficient on a busy Saturday night. Even with below zero temps the place was packed! Will go here again when in Duluth!
