Description: Italy's abundant and diverse food styles are represented and sampled throughout the year at Pazzaluna. The many culinary faces of Italy's distinct regions find their way to Pazzaluna's cucina daily. Seasonal influence is always projected, as are the artisan and craft suppliers that provide Pazzaluna with the best raw-ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. Pazzaluna is proud of its reputation of buying direct from area farmers on some of its most prized items. This style of purchasing is the TRUE ITALIAN TRATTORIA way - using local, regionally grown and produced supplies, reflecting the unique influence of the area as all of the ingredients come together in concert to perform in a dinner experience of a lifetime. To Italians, a meal is more than just food-it's an experience, an event to be shared with family and friends. No where is this more true than at Pazzaluna Urban Italian in Saint Paul, one of the Twin Cities' best Italian restaurants.

“Excellent Service, Food and atmosphere”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

Took a group of co-workers to Pazzaluna to take advantage of their 4-6pm week day happy hours. We ended up staying for 3 hours and enjoyed appetizers, drinks and entrees. I had the Bell Pepper Risotto with Beef Brisket and it was amazing. Our server was incredible giving us such great recommendations. I will be going back for sure next time I travel to St Paul

Thank you for visiting Pazzaluna while in town from Chicago and we could not agree more that the Bell Pepper Risotto with Beef Brisket is "amazing!" It is a newer menu item and has received great reviews. We look forward to serving you when you return. Travel safely!

“Very tasty, traditional Italian restaurant”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

I had both pasta (meat) as a starter and wood-fired pizza (pear and gorgonzola) with a glass of red wine. Liked it - no complaints. I was dining alone on business but got a nice seat close to the window and felt comfortable. Would go again.

“Decent Happy Hour”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

The bar area is fun and vibrant. The happy hour food is good, and plentiful, but there are few protein choices. Very carb centric and salty. Drinks are quite cheap from 4-6 pm too.

“Hot Spot”
Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

This is a nice place to stop. The food isn't the best ever,but combined with the environment,it is great. Also, this is a fairly popular spot for MN Wild players to frequent.

“Like a Big Hotel Restaurant”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

This place is so reminiscent of a big Hotel Restaurant. Overpriced for the quality you get. The food is good but the prices seem to support the infrastructure and not the food. Service was friendly.
