We enjoyed wonderful Italian food while enjoying beautiful Lake views. My husband said his was the best ever and my fettucine was very good. Would definitely return!

Beautiful sunset over Duluth and lake, nice food. Fettuccine noodle dishes good. Tomato salad fantastic. Great wine list including glasses and half bottles. Too full for dessert.

The staff is great, the food is not your run of the mill restaurant fare. Something different from what you will find in Canal Park or the Miller Hill area. Overlooking the lake is a great bonus! Dining room is very cozy. Great atmosphere.

Last night in the Duluth/Carlton area, my co-worker and I decided to go a little more out of our way for dinner. Found this restaurant on the lake, very nice place. Great meal, great view, good service. Everything you could want.

Ask to sit on the back porch in any season and you will be right next to the Lake overlooking the Lakewalk and NorthShore railroad right below. Beautiful views of the Lift Bridge and city, especially pretty lit up at night, even better on a...More

Family owned and operated, fresh Italian. Not your nonna's trattoria. Pastas, salads,pizzas, staek,fish, fresh baked desserts and gelato. Full bar, fantastic wine list and specialty cocktails. Perched over looking Lake Superior with the best view of the lift bridge and harbor.
