We come here for any special occasion we are looking to celebrate, and sometimes just for no reason at all. We are both huge fans of the pasta bar, it's a very reasonable price for the amount of food you get, (we both leave with leftovers every time.) When he worked downtown, my husband would often go there for the pasta bar for lunch also.
I would highly recommend Da Vinci to every person I meet, not only is the food incredible but we have gotten wonderful servers each time we've been there. Not to mention, the atmosphere is incredible!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best Italian foodSome of the best Italian food I have ever had. The gnocchi was fantastic in the bolenese sauce. Also the ravioli with seafood was out off this world and it was served in a creamy pesto sauce that was fantastic.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat visitThis might have been our best visit to Trattoria yet. Our service was impeccable, the drinks excellent, and the food was delicious. My husband had the special which was a mushroom truffle ravioli with sausage, and it was so good he saved half to take home. I had the sirlion with gorgonzola sauce, and the meat was tender and cooked exactly how I expected. We always order the tiramisu here, as the custard is lighter than anywhere else and the portion is so large that we can share. All in all, we can't wait to come back.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways go there for WCHA andAlways go there for WCHA and wonder why we don't go more often. The food is authentic Italian and the service is great.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful! Fantastic! FoodWonderful! Fantastic! Food and service was excellent!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's amore!I really love this place; the food is excellent. I've been here a few times. The place is small and quaint, so if you don't make reservations, you may not be able to get in. The staff is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. My waiter even made a recommendation for an entree that I didn't like and he was happy to replace it with something different.
There is a small parking lot to the west of the building. Heads up-it's a pay lot and you must pay, or your car will be towed. Someone does rounds in the lot every 30 minutes and they will quickly tow you, as I experienced after paying and putting the wrong license plate on the envelope (I was in a rental and made a mistake).
Otherwise, highly recommended place to eat.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCome here for the pasta bar!Come here for the pasta bar! Whether for lunch, dinner or in between, Trattoria has a great buffet-style pasta line with gigantic portions, but is extremely reasonable at $10.95! This place has a reputation for being a notch above the rest. It's known for having the best authentic Italian in St. Paul, and I don't disagree.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service/ attentive waitgreat service/ attentive wait staff. good foor. enjoyable experince.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food was outstanding,As always the food was outstanding, the service was great and the music was stella.
