I went there last night with a friend for late-night appetizers that began at 9:00. We arrived shortly before so we ordered cocktails and the calamari appetizer. I don't recall what my friend ordered for a cocktail but I ordered the Luna and Lavender which I LOVED (I ordered 2 before the night was over)! I've had the calamari in... More

The restaurant is very handsome, with a livley bar and nice dining room. The food is OK, but expensive for what you get.

We went with friends after the Opera and were pleased to be seated within 15 minutes. The ambiance is warm and the staff are friendly. The olive oil and bread were very nice as was the wine which was a generous pour. The biggest disappointment for me was the scallop appetizer which was 2 medium sized sea scallops. They were...

We had a great time... The service was a little slow but overall a great time. Make sure to order the Saffron and the duck. Both were amazing. Also, they do have a great happy hour we missed it but took a look over it. The only request I would make is that the bread was warm and ours came... More

We met friends for a Christmas season dinner out in St. Paul...starting with beers. Some okay options on tap, not great, but a few locals...but we paid 20 dollars for 2 surlys. Ouch. We shared a bunch of appetizers, all good. I had veal for dinner, which had a weird colored sauce, but overall was a good dish. Spendy again,... More

We have dined at Pazzaluna before. The price point may be high, but for the service and quality compared to the other fine dining options in the neighborhood, it is well worth it. The service is always exceptional, whether in the dining room or the bar. The food is well prepared, and a giant step up from conventional restaurant Italian.... More

Thank you for this kindly-worded review! Your support is sincerely appreciated. We too are fans of the late-night happy hour from 9 p.m. - close, its menu is slightly different, but complimentary to the 4-6 p.m. happy hour. We hope to see you again soon. More

If you're looking for great food in a great atmosphere, I would pass. Most importantly, the food was far from great. Antipasti was difficult to understand what we were actually ordering and ended up with different than expected. Chicken and duck were dry. Giant stuffed meatball was a bright spot. The service was slower than I'd expect.
