"We've been regulars at Sparks since it opened. Now that it has expanded and takes reservations, it's even better. Limited menu, but enough to choose from. Very good food (like its sibling restaurants Al Vento and Rinata) at reasonable prices. Great happy hour too. Outdoor patio is especially nice (but obviously not in winter)."

Al Vento is a romantic Southern Italian bistro with fine dining at affordable prices. The relaxed decor and elegance by candle light provide the perfect setting for friendly banter, family outings, or simply staring into the eyes of your lover with a fine Italian wine in hand. With notably some of the most knowledgeable and friendly staff in the Twin Cities, Al Vento is the perfect dining experience for you this evening.

"This is always one of our favorite places, with great food, homemade pastas and friendly service. In nice weather, the wonderful patio is a big plus. I think it's the best moderately priced Italian restaurant in the Twin Cities! Its sister restaurants (Rinata and Sparks) are also very good."
