Description: Italy's abundant and diverse food styles are represented and sampled...
Italy's abundant and diverse food styles are represented and sampled throughout the year at Pazzaluna. The many culinary faces of Italy's distinct regions find their way to Pazzaluna's cucina daily. Seasonal influence is always projected, as are the artisan and craft suppliers that provide Pazzaluna with the best raw-ingredients Mother Nature has to offer.

Pazzaluna is proud of its reputation of buying direct from area farmers on some of its most prized items. This style of purchasing is the TRUE ITALIAN TRATTORIA way - using local, regionally grown and produced supplies, reflecting the unique influence of the area as all of the ingredients come together in concert to perform in a dinner experience of a lifetime.

To Italians, a meal is more than just food-it's an experience, an event to be shared with family and friends. No where is this more true than at Pazzaluna Urban Italian in Saint Paul, one of the Twin Cities' best Italian restaurants.

Ambiance, service plus decent food = good value

The service here is quite good. The food is good for what is advertised although I don't have claim to be an expert on Italian food. The restaurant itself is located in downtown so it makes it a convenient spot to have dinner after work. The food will not disappoint but will not necessarily wow... read more

Four of us had a lovely dinner before a show. The reservation helped us ensure a nice table was ready and the valet parking provided added convenience on a winter evening. The waitress offered to split the bill even before we asked and she asked if we were heading to a show. The meals we chose were perfect and the... More

We have been patrons of Pazzaluna for many years. It has been our favorite restaurant for birthday, anniversary, and family celebrations, pre-theater and concert dinners as well as being the most frequently requested by out of town guests and business clients to return to. We have booked the private event room as well as the Chef's Booth. Valet parking is... More

Had dinner here with a large group of coworkers. Good variety of food choices and everything we had was excellent. I had the Bell Pepper Risotto with Beef Brisket and it was fabulous. There is a nice bar area separate from the restaurant and outdoor seating in summer months. Service was great too.

Large menu and great food at a reasonable price. We are in town for a skating competition and everyone we talk to has the same thing to say. Don't miss happy hour from 4 to 6. Half priced drinks and appetizers. Would definitely go back again.

I was not impressed. Hostess stated full menu was still available at the bar. Went to the bar, full menu was not still available. Settled for the late night menu and the spaghetti was small, not bad, but not great. Service at the bar was good. Won't be returning, found better value and service in the downtown St. Paul area.

I've only ordered food in the bar, so can't speak to the full restaurant. This is a vey fun atmosphere and super convenient for a quick stop in/out before a play at the Ordway or an event at Excel Center.
