The patio is smaller but lovely and the food is delicious. I especially enjoy the salads. I've had the salad bianca which has a mixture of endive, hearts... More

What's the name of the waitress with curly black hair? 💜 she was so cute..however 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.

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!

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

Just down the road from the Laughing Gnome and walked in with no reservations pre-booked. service was excellent and food perfect, nice selection of wines and both inside and outside eating areas, we ate outside and found the atmosphere and ambience to be great, good mix of couples, small and large groups and quite busy for a tuesday night...

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
