I took the grandson to Yarussos for Italian, and tried the lunch buffet. The selection was adequate, and the food was passable.I had memories of past visits with delicious sauces and lip smacking chicken and spaghetti--but the memories aren't supported by the present day facts.

Always enjoy our meals at Yarussos; Nice wine selection and affordable prices. The bake pasta dinners are always good. I had the manicotti and my friend had the lasagna this time. Both were delicious. The atmosphere is one of a neighborhood family Italian restaurant. It takes you back to earlier times in your life. The décor has been updated over... More

I have been going to this family owned Italian restaurant since I was a little girl (a few years ago). My husband and I have been going there for years too. Last night we went for our usual fix of a meatball dinner for him and spaghetti and meatball dinner for me. We both commented that the sauce tasted bland... More

Two of us had an early supper at Yarusso’s on Saturday. We enjoyed the ambiance, the service was very good, the food was good, but our orders were both wrong. She ordered Chicken Parmesan and was told she could have both white and red sauce. She chose both and received only red. It was not particularly special red sauce either.... More

We decided to give this place a try with our friends as my wife and I are trying to discover new places to eat in East side St. Paul. The location is nice, especially that they are right across the street from Swede Hollow Park. A nice walk before dinner never hurts. The establishment is very casual and you can... More

I have had Yarusso Brothers cater several events ranging from 75 people to 150+ most recently last week. Every single time I have called, the Team at Yarussos has delivered. The party at work last week was a big hit - the food was fresh, the pasta was perfectly done, fresh bread, butter, tiramisu - it was perfect. Keep up... More

i've been eating here for over 45 years and have never been disappointed ! friendly helpful staff and a varied menu representing numerous regional italian cuisines ! the photos of the many italian families who once populated the neighborhood add a great atmosphere- i personally enjoy their affordable lunch buffet- i love their family recipe red sauce

I've been coming here for years. I like that I know exactly what I'm getting when I order. No surprises. I love their Rigatoni and meatballs. I like that I don't have to feel like I have to get dressed up to go have a plate of good Rigatoni. When I was there I got waited on quickly even though... More

The restaurant was about half full when we arrive. We were told to sit anywhere we wished. Bread arrived and our order was taken. About 25 minutes later, we still didn't have our salads. The server we spoke to said our server was overwhelmed and please be patient. We finally got salads. Those who arrived after us were served and... More

Other than developing a Bocce Ball Court on the side of the building, the inside of this place needs a MAJOR overhaul. Average at best. Prices are rather high too.
