Diner Reviews
  • "One of the best places for food at MOA is Tucci Benucch. For lunch or dinner you will get good food and good service. Their half price wine nights are great."

  • "Love the food. Caesar salad is one of the best. Also love the tortellini tucci (not on menu anymore but they will still make for you. ) My 9 year old loves the bread and olive oil."

  • "I really enjoyed my experience at Tucci's. It was a girls night dinner with my friends and we were able to talk and relax and just enjoy the meal. The food was great, and I even got leftovers which are one of my favorite things! The only thing that I wish I had know prior to ordering, was that my drink wasn't bottomless. But all I would have had to do was ask, so I can't blame it totally on the server that I was unaware. Overall it was a really pleasant evening and I was pleased with the experience. Thank you!"

  • "We lost her! Even the table next to us complained. Yes - the food was above average. BUT when you need to ask multiple times for the same thing and, in between pleas, you can't find your waitress, it makes for a long night. We won't be back!"

  • "I think our waiter was actually Italian. Either way he was so cool. Professional, and treated my fiancée with respect. Serving her first, filling her water first etc. It's the little things. I will be coming back. The spegetti and sauce was out of this world good for the price paid."

  • "The food was all delicious, the Gnocchi is less dense than most I've had but still great. Great place for a special occasion or just a night out to treat yourself. Good wine and the Tiramisu Martini was good as well."

  • "After fighting the mall crowds, Tucci Benucch was the perfect way to end the day! Francisco was a fabulous, attentive and expedient server. Our OpenTable reservation bypassed the wait lines. Most importantly the food was great and the vibe was energetic and ideal for a family meal. Highly recommended !"

  • "Came in specifically for lunch at Tucci, its our favorite restaurant in the mall, we also loved the one in Chicago but can't enjoy that one any longer. We visited with four adults and a 3 year old and a one year old, great service paid special attention to the kids who came in really hungry but got their food fast. Food was delicious, service even better from Betsie,"

  • "We usually love Tucci Benucch but when we went on Saturday night we were disappointed. The restaurant was very busy but they didn't have the resources to allow for how busy the restaurant became. The food and service were not up to their usual standard. It wasn't the servers fault, she had too many tables to serve. The food was underdone in their rush to get the food to the table. We will be back but probably not on a Saturday night."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "I have been going to Tucci Benucch since is first opened at the MOA and I still think it is a great restaurant. I have never had a bad meal there and the service is always great - and even better than great when Jeff is your server. All the food is made in-house and is always fresh tasting and the portions are very generous."

  • "I've visited a few times prior with my Mother and Grandmother - its become a special treat for us when in the area. I made reservations for my Mom's 55th birthday and asked for a nice table for 8 of us in the online reservation. They really came through! We arrived early and they had the best table waiting for us - in our own little room! We were so impressed! It was absolutely wonderful! The food was amazing as always of course too! Thank you for making a really special occasion even more special for us!"

  • "My wife and I went to Tucci the weekend before Valentine's and had an excellent time. There was an hour wait but with the reservation, we had a table wating for us! I had the Chicken Carbonara, my favorite, the egg on top is the dealmaker! My wife had the Baked Spaghetti with Vodka Sauce. Her spaghetti came out with meat sauce, we let the server know, and the correct dish came out within minutes, we were very impressed! The food is fantastic, i would encourage anyone to stop in and try it out!"
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Server was slow to say the least. Didn't seem understaffed or that she was new....she sqeemed clueless that she was painfully slow as well. No apologies or effort. Food came almost instantly once we finally got to order, so kitchen clearly wasn't the problem. Food was amazing. Only saving grace to going back again."

  • "We were at Tucci for a birthday lunch. Our server, Anthony was awesome! He set up a centerpiece and birthday favors at each place for us before we arrived with the birthday girl. He was very attentive but did not hover. The food was awesome as always. All in all a great experience."

  • "Good energy, food and service. We could visit and hear each other without yelling. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. All the food was beautiful and very tasty, from my niece's pizza to my salmon over arugula salad. My glass of wine was well priced& sized (not too tiny). Desserts were delicious, too. It was so nice to relax and not feel rushed at the end of a long week...very pleasant experience."

  • "The food was good. The service was great. The wine list was very good. The ambiance was great - Not what you'd expect in the MOA. The problem? It was supposed to be a romantic dinner, and even though we had 8 PM reservations, there were too many kids in the place. My girlfriend noted that it was kind of a mistake to go there for that reason. And you never like to hear that on Valentines Day. Great for wine, and great if you have kids. I'd say even great for a late meal. It's probably the most upscale place in the MOA that I know of off hand. And I don't want to seem anti-kid or anything. It's just....my girlfriend made that comment, and she was right. It made it somewhat less romantic. *Very friendly hostess, BTW.*"

  • "Food was outstanding, only downside was we had to sit by the kitchen even with reservations. Our waiter was amazing and picked his favorite desert which was delectable."

  • "This was our third visit over the past several years. We specifically chose Tucci Benucch during our visit to MN because the last two visits were wonderful. We were not disappointed. The service was top notch. The food and drink were superior. Perfect place to take our client and to be able to have a conversation. Wonderful."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The Chopped Chicken Salad and the Gnocchi Bolognese were absolutely delicious as usual. We've had these them many times through the years at Tucci and have not been disappointed. Our waiter guided us in choosing the perfect wine for our meal and was very attentive."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "EXCELLENT - dining room was a bit cold though, and we were told there was nothing they could do to adjust the temperature because the mall controlled that. The food was delicious, the service was superb, we will return on our next trip to the Mall of America!"

  • "Great place for a pleasant lunch at MOA. Love the Happy hour too"

  • "I've been eating here since they opened and I still love it. Great pasta and interesting drinks, not just a wine list (which is also very good)."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I would have gone somewhere else as we were wanting to have a more personal experience for our night. When we do get out & are going to spend for a babysitter &for finer dining I would prefer not to sit in the area where everyone is in the hallway.In my reservation it had been noted that we wanted a quieter area, that it was a special birthday date night. We ended up being seated in the patio, which should really be called the mall entry. No one inquired about the birthday. Also, the birthday certificate did not state that we could not BOTH use our birthday certificates, as we both have birthdays in January. The food was good. The place is nice. Would rather not go for a date night. With friends would be fun and nice."

  • "My husband and I have been dining at Tucci for years, most likely since they opened. We enjoy dining at Tucci when it's just the two of us as much as when we have a small party of guests. Great service, awesome food & wine."

  • "Quality remains high and there is something for everyone. This is our go to meal whenever we go to MOA. Service is efficient and friendly"

  • "We chose to go to Tucci Benucch because we had gotten a gift certificate for Christmas. Neither of us had eaten there before. We were a bit taken aback when the waitress went on and on about the fact that they make everything from scratch. But...when we went to order, if we wanted pasta that was made from scratch....we had to pay extra for it. It was only a dollar...so not the end of the world...but seemed kind of tacky. We chose to split Chicken Parmesean, and each got our own salad. That was plenty of food (and no charge for splitting...which was nice). Drinks were a bit pricey...but tasted good. All in all, a good meal at a decent price."

  • "Was another pleasant dinner -- Took my date here for dinner -- she had never been here before and was really excited. The service was fabulous. The server made some great recommendations. The place was a little noisy but it was at the height of the dinner service. If you want to go on a great date night -- go here."

  • "Tucci's signature dish, the baked spaghetti, is a must try! It is unlike any other spaghetti I've eaten, it is so creamy and tasteful and I liked it much more than I thought it would. Definitely check it out!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Food was amazing as usual and we had an amazing waiter. We were sat in a side room instead of the main restaurant. That Had requested in the reservation for a quieter area and the last half hour of our meal was cramped right next to a group of 20 in this small room. It was extremely loud and was very disturbing for a romantic date night with the wife."
