After years in the restaurant business, Ramon and Armando Ruiz were ready for a change. Tired of the gimmicky marketing that characterizes many Italian franchises, they joined with Ramon?s son Enrique to open Andiamo Italian Ristorante?an intimate, neighborhood joint that emphasizes the family orientation of Italian culture. ?We don?t want to say this is who we are, deal," Enrique told Eagan Patch. "We want to build relationships with our customers and encourage and welcome feedback.? To that end, their menu of mostly Italian entrees, pastas, and pizzas also includes nontraditional cuisine such as walleye fillets and burgers. The dining room?s decor remains 100% Italian. A mural of rustic wine barrels sweeps across warm orange walls, and a tricolor sign glows above its outdoor patio. Ruiz and his staff also venture beyond the restaurant?s confines to cater various events.

Wooden beams traverse vaulted ceilings inside the dining room, overlooking diners feasting upon Italian and new American dishes. Chefs build 11 specialty pizzas that top crusts with breaded chicken, whole milk ricotta cheese, and ranch dressing. Spaghetti ribbons around housemade meatballs, and a seasoned butter sauce coats penne noodles. Recipes crafted on American soil include deep-fried walleye and hand-formed burgers topped with classic toppings such as onions, ketchup, and marmalade.

The wine gurus at The Wine Cafe instill their deep love of the grape-fermented drink in others with a long-winded wine list and a tastefully matching menu. While slurping down a glass of Woop Woop's Australian chardonnay ($6), diners can snack on deluxe sandwiches such as the salami-stuffed and tapenade-topped Italian ($6.50–$8.50), or accompany a build-your-own pizza ($11) with 16 available garnishes and Gnarly Head's California zinfandel ($6/glass). Chunks of grilled bread and kalamata olives swim in a tasty pool of mediterranean spinach and artichoke dip ($8.95), but only because all the other pools are closed for the summer. For dessert, save wear and tear on your teeth by ordering a banana cream cheesecake ($3.50) and imagining how good it must taste while sipping Casillero del Diablo's merlot ($7) or a beer.

Edible art—that’s how New Osaka views its cuisine. The restaurant’s chefs meticulously plate elegant sushi dishes, occasionally adding fun touches, such as using sauce to draw a palm tree on a white plate or a picture of Warren G. Harding bare-knuckle boxing Calvin Coolidge.

New Osaka’s design reflects this artistic mindset, too, with its modern décor and elevated dining area. Guests can sit there or, if they want to watch the chefs assemble their elegant creations, at the sushi bar. Nearby, a full-service bar dishes out imported and domestic beers, cocktails, and plum wine.
