City Pages' Description

Splashy, sexy, and great service are the watchwords at downtown's glitziest contemporary Italian joint. Recommended dishes? Skip the big entrées, which tend to be too crowd-pleasing with their reliance on the sweet and the salty, and focus on the other offerings--foremost the affettato misto an appetizer platter brimming with Italian hams, salamis, cheeses, olives, salads, and a very good bruschetta. Or the wood-roasted mussels; the light, zingy caesar salad; and the show-stopping dessert sample platter, crowned with the best tiramisu in town, an ethereal little tower made of light sponge cake soaked with coffee and Marsala and layered with rich mascarpone. Lunches are value-priced and popular; reservations are recommended.

    My husband and I shared a gigantic piece of carrot cake from Zelo. It was wonderful and had fresh nutmeg grated on top. They don't always have it but it is worth it when they do!

  • Scott on 04/26/10

    Get an order of the wasabi mashed potatoes!

    One of my favorite restaurants in Mpls. Parmesan Shrimp = amazing, as is Filet Sandwich, Ciao Baby w/ chicken or salmon or Lo Carb Chopped Salad. Yum on pretty much anything you order.

  • Jacob A. on 05/16/11

    Make sure you get both a soup and a sandwich.

  • Gittelson J. on 04/13/12
