DeGidios is always busy. Went with another couple. Our sever, Lauren, was new at waiting tables, but her pleasant smile and personality made up for any missteps in service. I had the walleye which was huge and very good. My husband had the chicken parmegian special which he said was very good. Both of us took home boxes with enough food for another meal or so.

We aren't disappointed when we go to DeGidios for a casual night out.

If you like traditional Italian dishes with large portions and in unpretentious surroundings, this is the place. Prices are very reasonable. DeGidios has also been in St. Paul since the 1930's and has an interesting history which is part of its appeal.

Try the blackened shrimp alfredo - it's the best. Wait staff was very good and the bartenders were friendly. Degidio's is one of my new favorites!

Our hotel concierge directed us here for dinner, and we had a wonderful meal. Arriving early, we got a great booth in the bar area, the timing fortunate; people were waiting for tables by the time we left. Our waiter was also tending bar, and he was as attentive as if we'd been his only patrons. Food was basic and terrific. We got good advice on our wine and beer options and accurate answers to our questions about food choices. Prices were quite reasonable, especially given the freshness, quality and quantity of the the food. If we lived here, we would be frequent diners.

We went here for dinner on a Monday evening. The place was crowded, but the service held up well. The portions are good sized, and the prices were reasonable. However, if you are not a fan of tomato sauce, there's not all that much Italian food to choose from. My colleague had the chicken meatballs over pasta with red sauce and enjoyed it, and I had the mussels and linguini in a broth.

For neighborhood eating, it's fine, but I'd probably go elsewhere for a special meal.
