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 and service but bar can be very noisy.

Enjoyed our dinner. Food was good and service was even better. Would be nice if they validated parking.

Food is okay but not outstanding. Price is quite high for the quality and quantity of the food. Place is cold in the winter and very noisy.

Our table wasn't ready when we arrived (on time for our reservation), but the hostess apologized. After a few minutes of waiting, the hostess gave us tokens for two free drinks in the bar while we waited. Very impressed as most places hardly acknowledge people waiting at all. The rest of the night was wonderful - great food and service.... More

Have never eaten in the dining room. The bar/appetizer menu is perfect. One of my favorite places to eat late at the bar...or early in the happy hour. Huge windows and attentive service. Relaxing ambiance. Margarita pizza and red wine is sometimes all you need. Especially great place in the winter to duck in, warm up, and watch the skaters... More

Lots of choices and great value. The smoked duck and arugula pesto bruschetta appetizer was great, although we expected it to be hot instead of served cold.

We have been here for special occasions for dinner and it's great, the food is amazing and the anti pasta bar is a nice addition to the regular menu.

We had been anxiously wanting to try this place as we both love Italian and have tried most of the other places in St Paul. Our first impression was this place is huge. I can best describe the atmosphere as "Cheesecake Factory like" as its massive and bustling. There is not much intimacy here, at least not that we saw.... More

Thank you for visiting Pazzaluna and for your review. With regards to the portion size of the Calamari Appetizer; we have changed the dish recently. We still serve the same amount of Calamari but we eliminated the “Frita Mista” or the fried Vegetables that used to be tossed with it. This may have resulted in the difference that you noticed...
