This place is where hot girls who believe that jewelry store commercials somehow tie into reality go for their "OMG I love Italian food" fix. Also if you like Disney movies go here. Ok in all reality the food here is straight up ok. My wife and I usually end up going here when we give up trying to decide... More

I work in downtown St. Paul and Cossetta's is one place that never disappoints. The cafeteria-style set-up can be intimidating at first, but the authentic Italian food is well worth it. I've never had a sandwich, salad, pasta, or pizza I didn't like it. My go-to is pizza and their slices are big and delicious. If you have any room... More

Great pizza, pasta, salads - and a wonderful deli for take-home treats. We've eaten at the upstairs restaurant just once. Their roof patio would be a fun spot for an evening get-together --- beautiful views. We weren't much impressed with the "fine dining" meal in the sit down restaurant. They should stick to the simple Italian food they are famous... More

Recently remodeled Cossettas is a fun stop for the Italian grocery store and Italian coffee shop. In true Italian tradition the pastries are worth oogling over and eating. We've eaten lunch here a number of times, and as far as food goes I'd rate it as average. But they have expanded their menu so at least now there are more... More

Great food to eat in, or to go. Ample parking. In store bakery chock full of Italian sweets. Butcher and grocery on site too. Great source for authentic Italian ingredients if cooking at home.

There is a full service restaurant but I have only been to the market/cafe. It's served cafeteria style and a great selection of yummy salads, pizza and pasta. The mostaccioli con ricotta is my personal favorite pasta. Great place to bring kids and after the expansion have even more room to sit and eat. The market is also great to... More

The bakery has to be seen to be believed, great tortes, gellato, Danish, an amazing variety of cakes and baked goods, many direct from sending their bakery chefs to Italy to study the real thing. Wonderful breads available in their store. Avoid game nights at the Xcel center unless you're also going. Way too crowded. Although their takeout and cafeteria... More

We had dinner I upstairs and the spaghetti sauce was very good but the cheese was overpowering. Nice atmosphere and would be fun to sit on the deck in the summer and have a cocktail.
