“Fantastic Pizza! and the Tiramisu is pretty amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Pizza is consistently delicious and the tiramisu is one of my favorites. I am not usually a fan of buffet type / ala carte, however, for this pizza I will always make an exception. The market has a lot of unique items and delicious coffee.

“Southern Italian Comfort Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

Regional food fresh, great ingredients. Popular entree's (mostacolli, lasagna, sausage and peppers, chicken cacciatore), and a few others are constants on the blackboard. Sandwiches with decent Italian salami and provolone cheese. All good choices. Only issue for me is too much sauce on the entrée. Ask for less, or on the side. Salads are large and easily shared by 2. Most entree's come with mostacolli on the side.
Pizza by the slice or whole pie, salads...made fresh for you. Cafeteria style ordering. Take your tray upstairs, choose a table, and enjoy the fact there is no rush, no tipping. Family owned and until a few years ago operated by family. As most places, few Italians are heaping up the good stuff now. More production line than personal attention with no side cracks and laughs. But Definitely a family friendly eat destination. $30-35 for family four of "real eaters" .Beverages, including beer avail. Costly.
Parking in rear lot, you might get lucky, but around 5 any given day, look for other street parking.
Game days, event at Excel etc, place is jammed. New addition to menu is a nice touch. But the original is still 1st choice. Outside sidewalk seating weather permitting.
Price wise, following trends, going up.Good ingredients=higher prices.
Still good, no longer great food, red sauces,pizza slices are ample.
Order whole pies in advance for take out; will take up to 30+ min. Everything avail for take out.
Deli is high price for all, but authentic. Ck your local grocery f
In the ethnic aisles to know better pricing. Just on a whim? Buy it and you'll love it. Cannoli, ravioli, manicotti, all frozen for take out.

“Don't Get It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

This pizza used to be great. Now it's maybe just o.k. - and for $25 with 2 ingredients it's really subpar - very sad. Cassetta's used to be THE place for New York style pizza. Not anymore. The pizza has too much sauce - too little cheese - and very little ingredients. We will never order it again. We just don't get it - and are very dissappointed. On the bright-side, the atmosphere is nice.

“Great quick Italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

Cossetta's is a must visit place if you're in downtown St. Paul and crave Italian food. Their pizza slices are huge and satisfying, although their pasta dishes are my favorite (mostaccioli con ricotta-- YUM!). Excellent salads made while you wait. Be sure to give yourself enough time to visit the wonderful deli for all your pasta/sauce/meat/bread needs. They recently renovated and added a higher-end Italian restaurant. If you're visiting St. Paul, don't forget to try "Just a Little Piece of the Levee."

“good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is a cafeteria style place, and the italian style food is quite good. If the town is crowded, like before a hockey game or tournament, this can take awhile.
