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!

We attended a wedding reception dinner at this restaurant. The room easily accommodated the crowd. Food was served buffet style and was excellent. Staff was fast, efficient and very helpful. There is plenty of free parking and easily accessible from downtown St Paul. I would not hesitate to return here in the future for a regular meal.

Degidio's has been the place over the past few years in St. Paul to go for Lunch,if you want a nice quiet meal that's fantastic. While I've been hooked on the Porketta for Lunch,and my Wife on the Pizza Fries, we have yet to get a meal beyond those items that is short of great. Old School Italian,and good at... More

DeGidio's has its own parking lot in an otherwise crowded area. Go early for dinner (4pm) as the place gets really busy after 5 on a Saturday evening. I ordered the strawberry salad with grilled chicken and no dressing (very tasty). You get plenty of warm,fresh baked bread with your meal. My two buddies each had the filet and they... More
