Bellanotte is an excellent Italian Cuisine restaurant in Block E of downtown Minneapolis. This restaurant is high end Italian cuisine. Make sure to make a reservation, as the place is very popular and fills up fast. The food is wonderful! If you love pasta you will not get tired of the numerous selections of pastas with meats, oils, and veggies. They also offer chicken and seafood selections. The seafood looked amazing. For my birthday, they gave me a free creme brulee, which was simply to die for. The large metal cage style fire place made for a warm amvience.
Later at night, they offer live music and a bustling bar scene, full of the trendy beautiful people. If you are not so much into that scene, just arrive early enough and you will have a wonderful, quiet dinner.
