Nice atmosphere, Wednesday fresh fixed while you watch pasta buffet, outdoor seating in the summer, and good service. Good selection of entrees. Can be busy at popular times. Nice touches like artisanal bread and olive oil.

The food is wonderful - any item on the menu and the atmosphere is so nice. The small town of St. Joseph is very proud to have this business.

I've never had a bad meal there and the staff is wonderful. Always accommodating. I go there often. I bring friends whenever I need a good place to take good friends.

From reading some of the reviews I was apprehensive about the service. Totally unnecessary! We were seating immediately. Our waitress, Raquel, took our drink orders quickly and ordered our bottle of wine shortly thereafter. We ordered two appetizers, Calamari and lobster something? and they were both excellent. We ended up taking some of this home. My seafood Ricotta? was loaded... More

This now small chain restaurant (several others in Central MN) has a diverse pasta and sandwich menu and some salads and soups with an Italian lean to it. The mushroom and seafood pastas are particularly good. My recent visit found me asking for langostino pasta and I got shrimp. The Ceasar salad is covered with olives so you may want... More

This is the greatest Italian food in St Joe. Their cooks are really excellent and probably deserves a raise but I wish they would have more locally sourced food.

The dining area is large enough to seat small and large groups, and yet still has a relaxing atmosphere. Weather permitting, they do have an outdoor seating... More

I was gone visiting family and decided to give this place a try. All our food was wonderful and the service was great! Plan to stop here every time we come back to the area.

It's a beautiful restaurant with a great selection of Italian food. We had a group of 6 and from the time we were seated until we received food was an hour! Our drinks ran out at least twice, & when asked for refills it took another 10 minutes. Make sure you make a reservation especially on the weekends or you'll... More
