I was at DeGidio's in St. Paul recently with a large group. Our group was large enough to get a nice-sized banquet room with plenty of tables and room for our group presentation (projector, screen, etc.). There was a nice variety of food, with appetizer choices, a meal with multiple pasta selections, and dessert. The meatballs were huge - only... More

Best Italian food ever, I have been going to DeGedio's for 35 yrs. To me it only gets better over time. I have many favorites, The sloppy dago is just awesome, the sauce is old school Italian. You cannot go just once, you need to try everything. Big portions they serve will make you go home with a happy tummy.... More

A group of four of us tried DeGidio's for the first time today and had a very pleasant experience. What makes this place stand out is the huge portion sizes, very affordable prices and quality service. We tried the pizza fries (really these are seasoned bread sticks in my mind), hot dago, chicken parmesan and lasagna. Everything was very good... More

Dendoo's wife here: I was born to Italian immigrants so my Mom's Italian cooking is a tough act to follow; however, I enjoy going to DeGidio's. Admittedly, it is located in my old neighborhood. It is a great, Italian/American bar/restaurant. We have had lunches and dinners there, been to a wedding reception and a birthday party. You're not going to... More

I have lived in St. Paul most of my life and tried DeGidio's for the first time last night. Wow have I been missing out! Our server ("Chubs") was superb, the good was great, and the price was right. Everything was very flavorful, fresh, and served piping hot. The "Italian Meatball Dip" was like an Italian foodie's dream. Freshly cooked... More

Always wanted to try this place but was a little leery about the quality of the food. Boy was I wrong. This is a typical American-Italian restaurant, but they take great pains in preparing the food with that extra touch. The red sauce is super. The meatballs are excellent as is their sausage. The pasta is al dente and drained... More

Yum! Yum! Yum! This is one of my favorite places in St. Paul! It is great to come here before a Wild game. It is so filling and the red sauce is to die for! Whenever I am in town I make an effort to stop and eat here. Their cheesy bread appetizer is THE BEST EVER!

A restaurant that has been operating since 1933 must have some things going for it. On the plus side, this is a pleasant dining room, and the service is very attentive. The dining room is a little dark but not gloomy. Prices are quite reasonable and portions are large (see attached picture of chicken parm). One of us had sausage,... More

Authentic, great food, large portions, and very affordable! This place has been here since 1933, and has been one of the best in town. Skip the fancy, crafty Italian restaurants, and go to where the sauce tells all! I had a dinner for three ( one child) for $40, and we brought home plenty in boxes. Tortelloni Boglanese was outstanding!
