I hosted a group of guests for dinner here while we were traveling to Pierre. The service was not the most attentive, but the food was good. Those that ordered from the favorites menu seemed the most pleased with their meals.

You will not be disappointed. If you are tell them. The owners are there and will make it right. They love food and customers. Italian family from NY that has blessed Pierre with amazing food for 20 years! It is the reason living in Pierre is okay with me.

This was our second time at La Minestra. They did not disappoint us. I had the Chicken Marsala, yum! Nice restaurant, family owned I believe. Highly recommend it.

We've been here a few times when in Pierre and have enjoyed all our visits. Had "Mark's Favorite" this evening...good dish, lots of fennel in the homemade sausage. Portions are generous. Nice salad and reasonably priced wine list. Support the local restaurants!

I appreciate a value for money Restaurant. This does not fit the criteria even though the food was good. No complaints otherwise.
