    We had a couple of birthdays to celebrate and even though we didn't know it, they gave both birthday girls a free dessert. It was delicious and unexpected. Made it more special. It was a little crowded for a large group but definitely worked out ok.

    Nice atmosphere, doesn't feel as crowded as it obviously is. Friendly and helpful wait staff. But the food was only so-so. I had the pasta carbonara and the bacon bits were literally all fat. All fat. No meat. On the other hand, my wife had the linguini with mussels and said that it was very good.

  • 50th Birthday Girls Weekend
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    I chose this restaurant based on the fact that it was located inside the Mall of America. We were there. Celebrating a 50th Birthday with a girls weekend away. I booked the reservation online, for the first time ever, and the process was so easy! In the special request section of the reservation form, I just mentioned that we were celebrating a Birthday and when we arrived, they had a private little room for us. The food and service were stellar! I cannot say enough about how well our evening went! We were very pleased and will definitely return again.

    I ordered multigrain pasta with sauce. It is not worth more than $8. But it was $15. I am diet conscious. Hence I don't have other choices. Apart from that good quality is good.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, Tucci Benucch is the best Italian restaurant in the Cities. You might be thinking but it's at the MOA, how good can mall food be? Their food is made in house, not mass produced at some commercial kitchen and delivered to be reheated. House made sauces, dressings, pastas, soups...the list goes on. And the food is awesome! I'm pretty picky about Italian food because it's easy to make at home and a lot of times just as good or better than restaurant food. But the food at Tucci Benucch is always fantastic. Give it a try, you will not be disappointed.

    Went with a party of eight. Nice casual atmosphere. Not a huge menu, but hearty Italian dishes. Calamari and spicy wings appetizers were outstanding. We liked the offering of pastas with a variety of sauce and topping choices. The Baked Spaghetti was wonderful but extremely filling. Would definitely come back

    7p on a Monday night and they were out of lasagna. They recommended the baked spagetti. Not much flavor, very little sauce. The best thing I had for dinner was the bread. I use to like going to Tucci. It was a cutext themed restaurant. Now is just boring and less then average foods. We won't be back. ...

The calamari was also outstanding and done perfectly. Our server was great- friendly, fast, attentive. We had a wonderful time!

    I made reservations here for a group of 12 for my mom's birthday party. The restaurant accommodated our group easily even with another large party and a busy restaurant. The food was delicious, everyone loved what they ordered, and the waitstaff was very attentive to our table. Our waitress was knowledgeable about the menu items and made great recommendations. I also noticed that the restaurant did not add their own 18% gratuity onto the check, even though we were a large group. I would highly recommend this restaurant to my friends and would dine here again!

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    I ordered chicken fettuccini and when it was brought to me, the server said she could bring me more sauce if I wanted to have more. As I began to eat my fettuccini, I noticed right away that there was so little sauce, you could hardly tell there was any sauce at all!! I did request more sauce and was given more, but wondered how they could serve such 'dry' fettuccini to begin with. If you order this dish, be sure you request more sauce.

    We made a reservation for five, then changed it to seven on the day of the reservation with no problem. When we arrived, not only was our table ready right away, but they led us to a really beautiful private room. We were away from the other diners and blocked from a lot of the noise. I was so pleased, because I hadn't even asked for a private room, but it happened to be a birthday dinner, and it was just perfect. The food was excellent. Plus, our server gave our group a free appetizer, and at the end of the meal the birthday girl got a free creme brûlée. Thanks for making this birthday special, Tucci Benucch!

    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.
