Capsule review:

An Italian cafe/neighborhood bistro with familiar Southern Italian fare, moderate prices and minimal decor. The level of cuisine is many notches above the typical "red sauce" restaurant, where everything tastes the same because everything is smothered in the same heavy-handed tomato sauce. Working with skill and finesse, chef-owner Jonathan Hunt changes his menu daily, but usually prepares house-made pastas, several bruschettas, small pizzas, braised meats, grilled fish and simple, satisfying desserts. One of the Star Tribune's 2004 best restaurants of the year. ( , 12/16/2004)
