We went on a Saturday, when there were two weddings going on so the service was pretty slow, because they were really short staffed (the chef was even helping wait tables). The food was AMAZING. I definitely recommend going, but try for a weeknight when...More

We had dinner at Taste of Italy last night. We had eaten there on occasion since the new own took over from Stella's and then moved the restaurant across the street. Each time it seemed better and last night we agreed it is now one...More

I was excited to try this place on my trip to Fargo, but was ultimately just slightly disappointed. I guess the usual restaurant is upstairs but they had a wedding going on so there were tables placed on half of the downstairs. So right off,...More

This is my new favorite restaurant in Fargo. The food is excellent as is the service. I really like the historic atmosphere! On the negative side if the restaurant is full it can be a little noisy.
