Lovely outdoor seating in the back on the water. Nice lights as the sun goes down. Servers were wonderful accommodating us as one of our guests was unavoidably late. Dinner and wine was delicious.

The dinner and apps were great. Wonderful salad and brucetta. We had mussels and the meat and cheese platter (enough for two). Everything was beautifully presented with excellent service. The have a nice wine selection by the glass too.

We have been dining at I Nonnis' for years. It was alway a 4 star. Now we were surprised to see baseball hats on outside, people wearing jeans, etc. It has become a non4star for us. We will go somewhere else for fine dining. So sorry to see our escape to fine dining go down the hill, but yet the menu prices remain high. Waiter was really good. Steven.

By far the best calamari we've had-- and we've tried many! And as usual, great service by the staff.
A very pleasurable dining experience.

As always, the patio at the restaurant is a delightful place to dine. The service is impeccable as is the food. Hopefully, during COVID, they will add heat lamps in the winter so we can continue to enjoy their amazing food and extensive wine list.

As close to Italy as you can get in St. Paul. Service was okay, but friendly. Food was very good. Great selection of wines.

This is the first time we came to I Nonni since the state-wide shutdown (February 20th)
It was a great experience to return and especially so because we were celebrating
our 50th wedding anniversary. It was well done by an excellent cook and staffing.

The food was excellent but the service was marginal. My husband and I arrived about 5 minutes before our other couple. They were told there was no reservation under my name. Drinks took a very long time. We ordered an extra arancini and didn't get it. We had a birthday boy so got a complimentary dessert but never got the extra dessert we ordered and the server didn't even acknowledge the fact that he forgot it. We paid the bill and left.

We have been to Osteria many times but not since the pandemic. So, this time we sat outside and the space was very nice. However, we were disappointed in the quality of the food. Based on our previous experiences the food this time just did not measure up. Have they lost their Executive Chef?

Pasta was tasteless — a big gluey mass of tagliatelle with a tasteless pesto and a couple of tiny meatballs.

Staff violated all of the COVID rules - allowed in a group of 6 non family people, none of them wore masks but nonetheless walked through the whole restaurant to a table. They were seated two feet from me until I asked for them to be moved to 6 feet.

Won’t be back.

Twice in 3 weeks! A gem of a restaurant providing great service, food and wine. Sitting on the patio listening to the water reminds me of dining out in Vail, CO, minus the mountains of course.

Overall it was a very pleasant experience. Service and timing were a bit off, which is unusual for I Nonni. We started with the calamari, always fresh. We had ordered Brussel sprouts but those never showed up. One person had the wild boar ragu, one had vongole and one had the pasta with mint pesto and lamb meatballs. All were very good.

Candles on the table would have been a welcome addition—a little hard to see outside as the sun sets.

We’ll be back!
