When I lived in Minnesota this was my favorite restaurant! Some of the best Italian food I have ever had, fantastic service and an amazing wine selection. This spot was good for a date, a business meeting or night out with friends!

Great restaurant! Every time I go to Bellanotte, it is with a big group, and every time the service and food is wonderful. They are close to the Target Center, so a good place to go before an event.

I was very impressed with my first visit here. Atmosphere was OUTSTANDING! So cool! And the drinks were fabulous and about average as far as price goes. The food was also fantastic, with a great selection! The staff was friendly and service was great! I suggest a little dressier wardrobe if you are going here...don't show up in jean's and t-shirt! Great place for a special occasion dinner also!

I'm mixed on this place. It seems to be a pickup joint for the young and attractive, but the drinks are fabulous. The food is wonderful, but don't go if you are feeling fat and ugly; you will feel worse when you leave! Consider sitting outside in the summer. At the very least, you will do some great people watching!
