Description: Since 1994 Broders' Pasta Bar has been serving house made and quality imported pastas and risottos, focusing both on Italian regional traditions as well as seasonal & local ingredients. We source from Midwest farms, when possible, and grow vegetables in our own parking lot garden (weather permitting, of course!) but really, it's about the pasta. Located across W. 50th Street from Broders’ Cucina Italiana, the original deli and specialty food shop, Molly and Tom Broder opened the Pasta Bar - to cook the pasta they were selling the way it was meant to be: fresh, al dente, perfectly sauced and thoughtfully executed. Still, and always, family owned and operated, Broders' continually strives to serve great Italian food and wine from our corner in Southwest Minneapolis. We hope to welcome you, whether at the Cucina, Pasta Bar, or the newest addition, Terzo, our contemporary Italian restaurant & wine bar. Saluti!

The stuffed fried olives were little bits of salty heaven--and the pasta was one of the best dishes I have ever had.

Broders has disappointed us for the last time. This place used to be the best place to eat in the neighborhood. Our last experience was so disappointing that we would never return. Broders should take a look at how they treat their customers. There are plenty of other restaurants in the area with more interesting food and better customer service. After all these years going to Broders I say Never Again!

On our trip to MN we wanted to visit some of Triple D's recommended restaurants, this is one of the most highly recommended places to have dinner. The pasta is made daily! The pizza is to die for! You should try the bruschetta for appetizer whatever kind they have is going to be excellent. This family run restaurant really brings a taste of Italy to the twin cities! You absolutely must try the gnocchi! If you are in the mood for a family kind of area try the restaurant across the street same owners! They also sell pasta and lots of other stuff. My only suggestion is that you don't go when it is really hot because I am unsure if they have A/C. Also the wine bar doesn't sell pasta outside most of the time, the night we were there so was one of the sons who owns the place. He was there dining with his family and gave us 15% off of dinner cause it was so hot out. He couldn't control the weather, but just this alone makes me want to go there every time I visit the twin cities

A wonderful dining experience...the pasta is FRESH and cooked properly, the choices varied and the service was friendly. We had two children in our party and they were treated so nicely and enjoyed their special ice cream treat at the end of their meal. I cannot tell you when I have EVER had a better spaghetti carbonara. Others in the party had the spaghetti aglio olio, fettucine bolognese, gnocci, spaghetti with meatballs....all pronounced their choices to be excellent. The appetizers are so good that some of us said we could order them for our meal .. the calamari and the salt cod were our choices...YUM. Yes, as some have said, we did have to wait, but it was so well worth the wait. We will definitely be back the next time we are in the Twin Cities. Oh yes, the bill was pleasant also!!
