We went for the happy hour (which offers delicious fried risotto balls, arancini, and pizzas for $5) and ended up ordering some other items off the menu as well. Everything tasted good, and the service was good as well. Attentive and kind, but not too much. I've been here several times, and had good experiences every time.

I love Risotto! Unfortunately, very few Italian restaurants in MN serve it and even fewer use the veg stock which is a must for the vegetarian me! Thank God for Scusi! It was our 10th wedding anniversary. Hubby surfed the web and after tons of disappointing restaurants with little or no vegetarian options for me, he stumbled upon Scusi. After... More

Good service, attentive but not impatient. Happy hour prices were very good. The 3 of us had a couple of good pizzas and Arancini, crispy risotto balls, with roasted red pepper aioli all at $5. Also enjoyed 3 different wines at $2 off. Then we enjoyed sharing a fine Cesar salad, a spaghetti carbonara, and more wine. While we all... More

I had hoped for a pleasant experience at this Italian restaurant in our neighborhood. We came with another couple for a Friday night dinner and were warmly welcomed by the hostess and waitress, but immediately we had qualms because the room was practically vibrating from all the noise. Tables were full and close together, all the surfaces are hard, plus... More

I ate at this restaurant with five family members representing three generations ranging in age from 19 to 94. On a Friday evening, the restaurant was full. The service was top notch: polite, attentive, friendly, and as efficient as possible given the crowd. That's the plus side. But the noise level was totally unacceptable: the oldest member of our party... More

OK so its pasta. But you get a side of snide, snot-nosed condescending rudeness to go along with your inflated bill. Just say why?

I received a gift certificate for this restaurant... I wasn't expecting much except for a decent meal, but to my surprise, it was a great meal. We arrived around 5:30 to be greeted with a great table and told of happy hour occurring until 6pm, we ordered a couple of drinks, artichokes and risotto balls... Both were deep fried, but... More

This visit was to celebrate a birthday for 2 people. Although there is seating outside, on the sidewalk, we had reservations indoors. Outdoor dining is great at times, but during rush hour in St. Paul you contend with noise, traffic and pedestrians walking along. Inside our waitperson was very quick to bring us a caraff of ice water and explain... More

We went for a 10 course wine dinner here, so I feel I tried enough items to get a sense of their potential. Many of the items served had something peculiar about them - salami and olives on a stick with a sauce that tasted just like ketchup, shrimp wrapped in proscuitto that was so heavily smoked it tasted like...
