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.

My husband and I had dinner at Pazzaluna before an Ordway event. We are both vegetarians. We found a number of terrific sounding menu items that would satisfy us. My husband had the beet salad and I had the arugula. Both were fresh, tasty, and had just the right amount of dressing. He had tomato and basil gnocchi. I had... More

We ate at Pazzaluna before attending a concert at Xcel Energy Center and it was an outstanding meal, with outstanding service. They offered a Prix Fixe menu and we decided to try it out.

We have gone here at least once or twice a year for the last eight years, mostly for birthdays. This restaurant has atmosphere, old style class, sophistication, and an ideal location. The service and food is great. It's convenient to both the Ordway Center, St Paul River Center, several hotels, and many pubs. Four historical sites are only a block... More

Salad was drenched but decent flavor, chicken parm was soaked in butter with one small piece of chicken for $28 and came with maybe five pieces of pasta, the piccata came with risotto, good flavor but also soaked in butter.

I love Italian food & was excited to find Pazzaluna after moving to the area. Our initial visits were great - food was wonderful (albeit pricey, as others have pointed out), but service was average. However, during our last 2 visits, the service was awful & I don't think we'll be back. We chose to spend our 20th anniversary at... More

Went here for my daughter's birthday. She was craving fettuccine alfredo. This was the best I've had outside of Italy! The sauce was very decadent but not thick and gooey like a lot of them can be. The pizzas were very good and large- more than enough to share. Service was excellent. Pasta portions are not large but an appropriate... More
