Take a close look at the menu before you go. A few selections are "approachable" in our server's lingo, but most of the dishes have some element that is unappealing or just overly fussy. My 14 year old, who has never met an Italian dish...More

We reserved this place for dinner before the MN Orchestra show, apparently so did everyone else in town. We were seated promptly and while our server did her best, the bar and kitchen were outrageously slow. I'm very surprised they only had 1 bartender for...More

My wife and I went to this restaurant prior to a theater outing. The play started at 7:30. We had dinner reservations at 5:30 and we were promptly seated. The restaurant must do a number of pre-theater and pre-orchestra customers, as it has a three-course...More

Visited Monello twice during my recent visit to MSP. Conveniently located near the Convention Center, Monello provides a welcomed respite from conference food. For lunch I ordered the Bucatini and at dinner the Spaghetti Nero - both excellent.

We dropping in after registering for our convention and despite no reservations we were quickly accommodated. Cocktails were very nice especially my “special coffee” after dinner. The service was wonderful and they were easily able to accommodate dietary issues such as gluten intolerance. I had...More
