Everything is made in-house in this popular restaurant. The wait staff are friendly and the food is good. It's popular with the local crowd.

Excellent hand made pizza. They were out of the salmon so my wife had to order something else unfortunately. Great place to eat, though.

Been there many times, best restaurant in Pierre and arguably, the State of South Dakota. Always the best and freshest ingredients and excellent service.

We were due to eat in Mad Mary's but they closed on July 3rd in recognition of July 4th!!!!

I had the chicken... More

Lived in Pierre for three years, and La Minestra was always a top choice for date nights. La Minestra specializes in Italian food with Mediterranean flair: lots of dishes accented with feta and kalamata olives. The Greek Salad is a killer addition to any meal, and the atmosphere is great for a romantic date out, gathering with friends, or even... More

This has great food and a good atmosphere but pretty pricey. The lunch specials are the way to go and are around 10 dollars. This is good Italian food and can tell it's homemade.

Enjoyed the tasty Italian food. Portions not massive by American standards which I view as a very positive thing as a European visitor. Tiramisu was good although coffee flavour was light. Would recommend as a place to eat in Pierre if you want to avoid the countless chains in the city.

We recently moved to the area and had our first night out and decided to try La Minestra. The atmosphere, food, and service was outstanding. Expect to pay what first class service costs because it is well worth it. This is fine dining at it's best. We will definitely return.
