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.

Great pizza/service

We went on a Monday night. We were celebrating our daughters Bdays. The service was very good. We ordered salads, bruschetta & 3 different pizzas. The pizza was so good, as usual! Salads, good. Skimpy portion/nothing real special for the price on the bruschetta. The Birthday girls, got a... read more

I can't think of anything I disliked about this restaurant. It was great. The food selection was great. The ciabatta bread was just as it should be - crunchy on the outside and good and chewy on the inside. The olive tapenade that was served with it was salty with a great buttery flavor from the olive oil. The two... More

I found the food to be mediocre, OK but not outstanding. The noise level is absurd and negates a normal conversation. The decor is lovely and the service was good. But these things are not enough to make me want to return.

Very pricey Italian Restaurant. Food was nothing spectacular but was ok. Parking was a nightmare. Not a place I would want to go back to.

We selected this restaurant for our anniversary and were somewhat disappointed. Notwithstanding arriving promptly for our reservation we had to wait for a table. The wine selection is impressive and the decor lovely. We ordered calamari and scallops as our appetizers. The calamari was excellent as were the scallops but the portion of the scallops was very small for the... More

When I used to live downtown I would walk here weekly for the beef carpaccio. I would bring my work, sit at a quiet table order my beef carpaccio and a bold red and let the rest fade away. Whenever there is a reason to celebrate in the St. Paul area, I quickly suggest this magical place. When venturing elsewhere... More

The service is impeccable, the wait staff are knowledgeable and professional but are fun and friendly as well. The bread with the olive tapenade? Crazy good. About 10 months ago, in March 2014, we went to celebrate my birthday here, as always, and my favorite dish, the cannelloni, was missing from the menu. I was crushed and the server could... More

My husband and I have dined at Pazzaluna several times and have always had a good experience. The restaurant is in the heart of downtown Saint Paul and luckily has valet parking.

I kind of feel like I'll give this place more than three stars after I've been there more than once. The one time I went, my experience was very good in many ways. The service was very friendly and fast, but it honestly was pretty empty when I was there (5:30 on a Sunday). And yet, I thought my entree... More

I hadn't been to the Pazzaluna in several years. Since then, the place has undergone a major remodeling. It's a wonderful atmosphere, but it does have one fault that most bars and restaurants suffer from these days--it's designed to be noisy. There are virtually no "soft" surfaces to absorb sound. This, along with the high ceilings, makes for difficult table... More
