fast for lunchtime and great food

Stopped in for the lunch buffet with a group from work. Fast service, great food, and low price. The meatballs are great, and loved the alfredo with pasta. We'll keep coming here.

Yarusso Brothers is an old style Italian family restaurant. If you want a nice serving of pasta and meatballs with a side of salad. This is your place. Order the Chianti. You will have plenty of good food.

We attended a private party event there. Good food, good service, quaint place. Would recommend it and will go back again sometime.

Spent the time to go to Yarussos in St Paul with friends. Sliced white bread - nothing at all fancy - on the table with pats of butter. Italian dressing on salad was typical Italian dressing - nothing special. Meatballs on spaghetti was extra large and tasty. I don't think we will go back - it was average or below.... More

This Italian restaurant, located in the ethnic, blue collar East Side of St Paul, has been around for decades and for a reason. It may be a bit less ethnic and a bit less blue collar but Yarusso's hasn't forgotten its roots. All kinds of pasta, giant and delicious meat balls, Italian sausage that's not too spicy and a terrific... More

On the way through detour traffic to the doctor and here I was at a light in front of Yarusso's. I went around the block and headed back in for lunch. I had 45 minutes and hoped I could be served and out in time. Definitely old school; been there many years ago with family. A bartender and a server... More

We tried Yarusso's one Friday evening recently. In a nutshell, the Italian food dishes (3 different dishes tried in our party of 4 ) was bland; think creamette noodles with bottled Ragu sauce you could have made at home; not what I go to an Italian eatery for. White bread bland and old school salad drenched in dressing. Service was... More

I think their food is good. Seems prices have been creeping up lately but you get about two meals out of an order. The resturant is small but service is good. It's a family owned place with a typical italian menu.

I go here as often as I can. Wonderful salads - antipasta all the way. Great pasta. Lovely luncheon buffet. Reasonable prices, friendly family place. What more can one ask. Their sauce is quite unique - a touch of nutmeg, I think, does it.

Look at what people say in their reviews. And look at how people rate Yarussos. The ratings are all over the place from 1-2 to 3 and 4-5. It just makes me wonder, "Are we talking about the same place?" How can a place be so many different things to so many people. Even some of the people who give... More
