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.

Good Food/Loud Atmosphere

Pasta and shrimp served to perfection. Chianti one of the best I've had. Waitress was very knowledgeable and had "can do" attitude with special requests. Booths are not very comfortable. Noise level high.

An awesome restaurant, right across the street from the St. Paul Hotel. In face, managed by the same company. The food is spectacular, the service is outstanding! If you don't care for Italian, there are other options. Save room for dessert! Reservations recommended.

Atmosphere was great! Food was excellent and staff was very friendly and attentive. No waiting time, fast service and great space to visit. Also saw couples sitting together and not being disturbed by the various groups of people catching up after a long day of meetings. If your on the riverfront this is the place to go at the end...

After we were seated it was about 15 minutes until we were waited on but it was worth the wait and we were taken very good care of. Our meal was amazing and the wine selection was great. I had a Sophia Loren Martini and it was great. The antipasto was really good. Make sure you try it.

We arrived in time for Happy Hour on a Friday evening, and enjoyed reasonably priced appetizers, and split an entree. Since we didn't make reservations (a must if you wish to sit in the dining room), we sat in the bar area which had plenty of room. The service was very good, especially since it was a very busy restaurant,... More

Dinner consisted of a very warm basket of fresh garlic bread. Then a appetizer of a goat cheese, tomato and thinly sliced pork pizza. Completely awesome. Finally a Seaford rissoto which was extremely spot on with, warmth of the fish, texture of the risoto and finally the right mix of seafood. The wait staff was brilliant. Mary did a superb... More

We visited on a busy Friday night to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere was very nice. My Italian food was wonderful and the steak was just ok. Our special dessert was very much appreciated. Service was excellent!

We both had the Walleye entree. Just a touch too Much oil On the vegetables. Otherwise, the almond exterior was delicious. Good service with one nit to pick: my girlfriend noticed that the gentleman cutting bread near us, was also handling dirty dishes, and never washed his hands or wore gloves when he went from dirty dishes to bread. Otherwise,... More

This restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Saint Paul. It has an elegant interior and a nice range of selections including an antipasto bar. I have been there about 20 times, though that is partly due to the lack of alternative restaurants in its class around Saint Paul.
