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.

This is what I asked myself at the end of an beautiful meal at Pazzaluna. I moved out of downtown St. Paul a few years ago and hadn't taken a meal at Pazzaluna since then (mistake). We made a same-day reservation for seven (it was a Thursday) and they had our table ready and available when we arrived. The service was excellent!. The food was excellent! Fresh, clean and relatively quickly-delivered. I had their Arugula salad and a Capicola & Arugula pizza on the server's recommendation). We had two couples in our group who were worried about portion size and wanted to split an entree - they were not harassed for doing so. We'll be back - much sooner-than-later!

I went here with a large group of friends, it didn't seem like they had trouble accommodating us, they have some rooms that are pretty wide open for large tables. I did not make the reservation but I didn't hear of any problems either. The food was fantastic. Now when I pick my favorite Italian in St Paul I am going to have to choose between this and Cossetta's. Both are very good food. This place is obviously more expensive, but it is a very nice atmosphere for a special occasion or a date. Cossetta's is a cheaper option, but it is a cramped atmosphere and you don't get a server.
If you are looking for very tasty food with a dark trendy atmosphere, this is it!

The food isn't cheap, but it the quality is very good. The waitress was eager to help and wanted to make sure we had a good time. We sat at the bar in front of the kitchen so we got to watch them make all the food and had a great time.
