One of the best Italian restaurants in the Twin Cities is in this Lilydale subdivision. The owners regularly perform magic with homemade salumi (his guanciale is awesome), phenomenally authentic pastas, superb first courses such as beef carpaccio or calamari fritti, and one of the best osso bucos around. There's an extraordinary Italian wine list as well.
