We enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The restaurant was loud with good energy, but we were there before a hockey game. Meal was delivered at a good pace, and our waiter Hudson was attentive and friendly. The fritto misto and chicken parm are both worth trying, and the caprese was decent not a lot of flavor, although cheese was... More

This is a favorite spot for dinner. Happy hour on the terrace affords great views of St. Paul and the Cathedral depending on where you sit. The service is good. Dinner in the dining room can be what you make of it. Casual or elegant. There is great ambiance. Service is also good. Food is yummy! I've yet to have... More

This is our 'Go To' restaurant before a Wild game. The restaurant is located on the top floor of an old building and offers lovely patio dining in the summer. They offer authentic Italian fare and we have been delighted with everything that we've ordered here. We especially like the Fritto Misto which is lightly battered fried calamari, shrimp, cod,...

We didn't plan well (party of 4) but got a table easily on a Friday night without reservations. Yay! We had great service and the food was wonderful. We started with the fried cheese then had pastas, Marsala chicken, lasagna and a salad. We finished with a bday dessert and a sweets platter from downstairs. Holy sugar overload. It was... More

My husband and I are in town for a Red Wings v. Wild game. We stopped by Louis and the hostess informed us there were no tables available for two hours. We did find two seats at the bar. Britney the bartender was beyond efficient and attentive. We ordered food. My husband had the lasagna that was wonderful. Could have... More

Louis' Ristorante is authentic Italian cuisine in an elegant setting without the elegant price. We decided to be seated at the bar and were impressed with our excellent service. The bar appetizer menu offerings were superb. Wine is served in a large glass (a real serving, not just 2-3 oz). This restaurant is on the third floor of Cosetta's; there... More

If you want to upgrade from the cafeteria style at Cossetta's. Go to the third level called Louis Restaurant. It is fine dining above the restaurant below.

I was very impressed with not only the quality but the quantity of food. We went after an afternoon Wild game and the restaurant was packed. Fortunately we did have reservations. We were seated at our reservation time and our food came our quickly. Staff was well trained and very attentive. We will definitely go back. Louis could easily turn... More

4 of us dined at Louis before enjoying a performance at the Ordway. Parking - It did not take long to get through the line to park on site. There are also a few ramps nearby. Wine - The Tuscan cab was surprisingly good. Food - My son-in-law ordered the Penne All' Arrabbiata. He found it to be perfectly spicy.... More
