I have to say La Grolla is the best! Our waitress Eugenia Conway gave us the best service she was so sweet and helpful that we must come back! As a bartender myself I can appreciate people like her - ❤️Magy Saroufiem

I have no idea how many times I have driven past La Grolla on Selby Avenue in St. Paul. Nothing about the exterior of this restaurant piques your interest, but oh what you are missing if you just keep strolling on by! The interior of this restaurant is quite tiny and a bit cramped but don't let that stop you.... More

We spent a few days in St. Paul & were delighted to find authentic Italian food at this lovely restaurant. We enjoyed both the tenderloin & breaded chicken dishes. The inside seating was great & the courtyard area was lovely. Great service!

My wife and I recently spent a few days in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area as a short getaway. We were looking for a place to enjoy a nice meal and found this place online. We were impressed. The service is great, the outdoor patio is a wonderful place to eat when the weather was as nice as it was the... More

I recently enjoyed both a lunch and a dinner at La Grolla. Both times the food was excellent and the service prompt and friendly. The menu variety is outstanding and sitting on the back patio is idealic on a beautiful summer day in Minnesota. The soups and salads are perfectly flavored and refreshing. All my guests enjoyed the evening ambience... More

Very poor management. There are many other restaurants in the TC area that give great service and serve great food. We won't be back

Our first time to La Grolla even thou our kids have been telling us about it. La Grolla was everything our children had said. We were meeting some friends from Maui and it was a great place for them to experience St. Paul's outdoor dinning. The build your own combo for lunch at $13 was wonderful. We all had different...

La Grolla has yet to disappoint when it comes to the menu and the service. A friend and I went on a Saturday night to celebrate our birthdays, and we treated ourselves to a bottle of Prosecco, an appetizer, seafood pasta entrees and dessert. Everything was wonderful. We started with calamari (it comes with two dipping sauces as well as... More
