Our party of five were at Pazzaluna for a special occasion. Our food and service was great. The only real negative was the noise level. It was hard to hear the person sitting to me.
My Wife and I brought our mothers and my sister to dine after a show at the Ordway. We enjoyed wine and cocktails in the bar, as we were early for our dinner reservation. The only negative of the entire evening, was that the bar was out of Drambuie for my favorite cocktail. The ambiance was good, the food was fabulous, and our servers were attentive, prompt, and knowledgeable. I will definitely be returning.
We enjoyed our second "Engagement Dinner" experience this past weekend. Both occasions were exceptional in service, ambiance and menu selection. Pazzaluna is an memorable "Special Occasion" restaurant!
Have to say I was a little disappointed in the food. The risotto with the Chicken Piccata was gummy, the lemon butter sauce was thick as pudding and not very appealing. The servers were a bit too busy, didn't tell us about the specials, drinks took a while, probably won't be back, too bad, loved the atmosphere.
The salad was incredibly disappointing. It had wilted lettuce. The chicken I had was mediocre at best. Not worth a 70$ tab for 2 people
Ambiance is fantastic, tables offer plenty of breathing room and the overall space is interesting. Notably, lighting is fantastic.
During my visit service was awful. We had a reservation for 8:30 and showed up at 8:05, they told us they'd have a table for us within minutes. By 8:45 we still had no text and had to talk to the hostess again. We were brought to a table in the far rear of the restaurant with no apology. Our waitress had a good attitude but it took nearly ten minutes to get our check.
Food was good but not worth the cost especially taking into account the poor service. I can't recommend Pazzaluna for anything beyond the location itself.
Fantastic place to go out on a nice date. Food was great, the atmusfear was great!
On a previous visit, the food was spectacular, the best Italian food ever. This last visit was only very good, on par with other high-end Italian restaurant. I will have to try it one more time to see which one was the fluke.
One best and most consistent restaurants in the Twin Cities. Superior service. Curtis is a true professional.
The service was excellent, the food outstanding. Everything you want for a date night.
Everything was great, only downside was we were there for a business meal and right by the kitchen so it was rather loud.
it was great! highly recommend the pecan pie!!
We went to Pazzaluna for Valentine's Day--my husband loves Italian food. Our server was very attentive and helpful. The food was very good and we had a wonderful bottle of wine. There were specials for Valentine's Day, but we ordered off the menu. The only problem was that I ate too much! But that's not their fault! We'd definitely go again.
I have eaten here several times, mostly for date nights with hubby, but recently for pre-Valentine's dinner with our family of 4, including two school-age sons.
The atmosphere and service are always excellent. Dining here always feels like something special. The food is consistently very good to excellent with creative takes on Italian standards.
Very worthwhile fine-dining experience.
Very awesome staff and food.
