This seems to me like the foodiest food in Ames and it's always good. Most recent meal was the Faroe salmon, which was a magnificent piece of fish, perfectly cooked, melted in my mouth, with pancetta, greens and pasta in cream sauce. Have also enjoyed the grilled asparagus (with an egg on top), broccolini, beets, chicken, fried gnocchi, calamari and various pastas. Two small plates is often a good way to go. Food can be a bit rich, but always delicious. Most reliably good cocktails in Ames. Recent dining companion said his Bloody Mary was the best he'd ever had. Nice small selection of good Italian wines. Nice ambiance too - feels like a place in a larger city. When I don't want to drive to Des Moines or Chicago for dinner I can be happy at Bar la Tosca.
