5 Stars - The Real Deal!! – This place is the most authentic Italian restaurant in the entire Twin Cities, not the mention that it’s also quite romantic and has the best wine list around. If you looking for the real deal, try Arezzo.
Fabulous Restaurant – This was my first time at Arezzo. This place was recommended by a friend. I didn't make a reservation, but went early on a Saturday (5 p.m.). Lovely and prompt service. The place got busy between 6-7 p.m., but our service didn't deteriorate. Appetizers were clamari (that was melt-in-your-mouth tender) and spinach in olive oil, garlic and pine nuts. Just enough garlic to flavor the spinach, but not overpower the dish. My entree was a pork loin chop stuffed with apples, italian ham and cheese on top of garlic mashed sweet potato and a cream sauce. Wonderful! Portion was exceptional, very filling, tender and moist. For dessert, three of us share the tiramisu. It was a huge portion. Although it was delicious, we couldn't finish it. This wasn't "done up" tiramisu, (I've had tiramisu at other gourmet Italian restaurants where they put orange zest in the dessert, which overpowered the dish). This was the traditional, well done tiramisu! This fine fare was priced right. Nice restaurant for friends, family or dates.
Great Authentic Italian – I love this place. I have been a manager with a small local italian restaurant company, and Arezzo was always on my shortlist of restaurants to watch. Always authentic Italian, not the waterdowned Olive Garden Variety, and cozy but a place you would expect to find on Restaurant Row off Broadway in New York.
Always a Great Time!!! – My husband and I always have a great time and wonderful food at Arezzo! We stopped in last weekend and tried the Ravioli on the specials with sea bass and shrimp. It was amazing! My husband really enjoyed his salmon, but he always does (orders it every time). We look forward to having my sister-in-law's birthday there soon. She loves Tiramisu and I think Arezzo has the best.
Best Pizza & Fresh Pasta !! – I have never written a review for any Restaurant before but I do read them on occasion. Arrezzo in my opinion is the best Italian Restaurant by far in the Twin Cities. From there fresh pasta that is made everyday to the perfect Neopolitan style pizza it is our families favorite restaurant. The only reason why I make my opinion known is because I saw 4 bad reviews all within 1 day of each other, obviously one table of customers are on a mission to get some attention from the restaurant. Why not just ask for the manager and get it straightened out rather than to air your dirty laundry for everyone to see? This Restaurant is a hidden jewel in the Twin Cities!
Wow – We first came to try the pizza on a recommendation from a friend. We've been back several times and ordered just about everything on the menu. My wife loves the fact that (in stark contrast to most other restaurants) their dishes are not doused with oils and sauces, which lets the incredients really come to life. The pasta dishes have been great, and again, the pizza is absolutely terrific. My only complaint is the summer traffic can be annoying if you are dining outside.
Finally...true Italian!!!! – My fellow reviewer guzzirider said it all. I too am 100% Italian and only ate authentic food my entire childhood. Arezzo dishes bring me back to dinner and my Nonna's! She too was from Northern Italy and Arezzo get's it. Thank you thank you, thank you! All dishes are great, the gnocci is very good, the risotto is perfect, ahh I love it all. I also love to order the fetuccini and sausage pasta dish yet substitude penne for the fetuchini. Great stuff.
Great Italian Food – I went to Arezzo for an anniversary, the food was fantastic and unlike many Italian restaurants I got what I paid for. The Restaurants looks were very appealing and other than some of the tables being a little close together, it had a romantic setting. Overall a great place to go on a date and enjoy some great food.
Best Authentic Italian – Great food, intimate setting, real Italian food made by Italians.
Limited parking. Try the Gnocchi.
Pricey fare and charming Italian decor find a fit in this trendy neighborhood. – In Short
Inspired by their favorite Italian city, owners Dwight Bonewell and Adam Smith infused their cozy, candlelit (and usually busy) corner shop with Italian charm. There's a small bar; gold and earthy tones; red-clay Etruscan-esque pottery; a 24-foot reproduction of an Old-World fresco--even an authentic Italian chef in the kitchen. With homemade pastas and ingredients such as mozzarella di bufala and imported San Marzano tomatoes, the menu emphasizes authentic Italian cuisine (bruschetta, pizza, gnocchi with pesto).
