Waiter was attentive. Went without a reservation on a Friday night and took 45 minutes to be seated, not unexpected. Had a three course meal. The asparagus appetizer was so wonderful I could've had it just for dinner. The outdoor patio is gorgeous. Will go back when it's warmer to enjoy the patio

1. We both loved our entree. The house made pasta was excellent. 2. We both loved our desserts. The chocolate ganache was super. 3. We didn't order an appetizer, but everything that was carried past our table looked great. 4. The service was superb. 5. We loved the patio seating. We will return here soon.

Attentive staff from hostess to wait staff (Gina) and water man. Extensive menu, so many specials, almost too hard to choose. We skipped appetizer's fort main course of top hat ravioli stuffed with risotto and... More

We recently celebrated my husband's birthday by sitting on the patio at La Grolla on a lovely summer evening. If you get turned away at W.A. Frost around the corner, come here! 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!
