Diner Reviews
  • "This is a great Italian restuarant. Everytime I visit the Mall of America,(I'm from out of state), I make it a point to have dinner here. You can always count on a great meal. Brought first time collegues with me and they thought the meal and desserts were wonderful. They will come back on future business trips. Highly recommend it. Great place to unwind after a day of shopping as well."

  • "Out waiter was fantastic. Super patient and willing to answer any and all questions we had. Definitely made the night go smoothly. The food was good, nothing really special in and of itself. But combined with the wait staff and the decor and ambience, it makes this place a great location for dates, family dinners, or special occasions. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place with good food and an atmosphere a step above your typical stake house."

  • "We have taken customers here before and have never been anything but over the moon happy with the food and service. This time was no exception. We requested a quiet table for our reservation for 5 and were lucky enough to get a private room. The food was fantastic and all our customers agreed that the evening was a total joy and success. P.S. Don't miss dessert."

  • "A variety of items were ordered and we each enjoyed our dish. Only complaint is that it tends to be dark so hard to read the menu. also can be a challenge to take pictures for those special occasions (which ours was)."

  • "While visiting MN, my wife wanted to check out the Mall of America and to our delight they carry a few LEYE concepts in the mall. We happened to just be closest to Tucci Benucch and decided to get a quick lunch there. Food was great, very similar to Maggiano's, Pizzeria Via Stato, and Frankie Scallopine's menus. Service felt forced, as the gentlemen we had chugged along, but was very nice and prompt so no real complaint about the experience."

  • "I have been to this restaurant numerous times but not in the last year. Went there just this week. Was not impressed. The menu did not have as many choices as it did before and it looked more like a fast food menu than the professional menu they had before. I won't be going back."

  • "We hadn't been here for a long time, but loved their tortillini. We were disappointed that this was gone from the menu, but the gnocci made up for it! Bruchetta was very good and we were there on a Monday for 1/2 price bottles of wine. We finished off with some strawberry cheesecake (nothing very distinctive about it, but it's cheesecake, so it was great). Service was prompt and friendly."

  • "Two of us ordered the seafood linguini which typically came with a tomato sauce - but we asked them to switch it for an Alfredo sauce - and it was SO good. Another person ordered some type of pasta that came with a sausage - and she said the sausage was really hot (spicy) - but also thought her food was good. This was our first time there, maybe that's why they brought us some free appetizers? Not sure, but they were also delicious."

  • "Reservations at 8pm were on time. This is at MOA and I was so hoping I did not have to eat out in the hall next to peoiple walking by. Fortunetly this did not happen. The wedge salad was a surprise. I did not expect it to be as good as it was. Service was very good and friendly even after a long day for them. All food came out very hot and as described in the menu. I'll go again when in the MOA. I don't see any in the Chicago area."

  • "Food was just okay. Neither my wife or I could finish our entrees because they were too large and the taste became tiring. I had the baked spaghetti and found it dull and boring. My wife said her pasta was okay but she also grew tired of it. Tried a lime Italian soda -- tasted like medicine with a strange, bitter aftertaste and no fizz. Then tried the peach soda and it was barely acceptable, but again, no fizz detected. Son had a pizza which I sampled -- tasteless with a very thin, limp crust. Our son said he liked the pizza, but he likes any pepperoni pizza. We do not plan to return."

  • "There was a very strong fish smell when we entered the dining room, somewhat unpleaseant for a few of us in the group. Of course, fish dishes being served in the dining room would have a smell, but this was very strong - perhaps some of it was from the kitchen? Is there a way to vent some of that cooking smell to the outside of the restaurant instead of the inside?"

  • "Had a leisurely dinner with friends on Friday night. Tucci Binucch worked for a great meeting place as it is half way between where we both live. Wine was great, food fantastic and the service was attentive and very nice. We have the small pizza as an appetizer and the dinner with some great desserts following. Everything was great! "

  • "In the Mall of America, this is a good place to get popular Italian food. My lasagna was made with homemade pasta sheets and was creamy. A friend had gnocchi which was pillowy soft in a tasty alfredo sauce. Good food at a reasonable price."

  • "Our party of 13 was treated to a delicious dinner and not one of the 4 moms present had to do anything but show up and enjoy! I have been going to Tucci Benucch since soon after it opened at the Mall of America (19 years?) and I have never been disappointed."

  • "We added in our reservations that this was supposed to be birthday celebration but NONE acknowledged it by asking if we wanted a dessert or be assisted with the birthday surprise. It was our manager's birthday (visiting from California for the first time) and wanted to surprise her. Also asked in advance if we could bring a cake from outside and NONE got back to me. In addition, the "butter noodles" ordered for the child in the party were brought to the table with no butter or cheese in it, but just plainly boiled. When this was brought to attention, they took it back just to bring it again with just a little dab of butter in it, no Parmesan or salt or nothing. One of us also had to wait about 20 minutes before being served a glass of wine."

  • "I went on a Monday night with my mom, aunt, cousin, grandma. We had a wonderful time. They were able to seat us earlier than our reservation. The wine was great AND half off - we had 3 bottles! The server was very good at anticipating our needs but also giving us room to talk and eat without interrupting the conversation. The food was all good, though only a couple really approached that "Wow!" factor. "

  • "We had not been to Tucci Benucch for 7-8 years, since we don't have reason to go to Mall of America very often. They handled our party of 11 pretty well and table was ready on time when we arrived Sunday at 5:30pm. Both hostess and server were pleasant and knowledgeable. But, the restaurant and the menu are both tired and in need a major face-lift. Food was OK but execution was wanting. For example, their signature CRISPY CHICKEN SOSTANZA accompanied by mashed potato was drowning in water leeching from a bed of poorly drained spinach. Need to do something creative with the specialty cocktails to get past the sleepy old Sangria. Wine list was pretty limited, too. I was ready to spend a lot more than I did."
