This restaurant is permanently closed. The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and
tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand-
picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal
and ethnic influences of the cuisine. -
Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant
as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."

Our evening was wonderful and we enjoyed being a part of Muffuletta's last night of an incredible 40 years! We are so sad to see their doors closed.

Muffuletta has been a favorite restaurant of mine for the past 37 years. I hope a good restauranteur can reclaim the aura and quality of food at the Muffuletta location. This was a St. Paul legend that was perhaps not well known enough.

Muffuletta was very good as usual. It is one of my daughter's favorite restaurants, so we went there for her birthday. Very disappointed that it has closed!

To our great sadness, the restaurant will close on November 11, 2017. We have always enjoyed our dinners, especially summer dinners on the deck. Best wishes to the staff.

We are so sad they are closing. We went for the final time Saturday for brunch. The food was great, the service was outstanding. If we didn't live 40 minutes away we would have visited more often. Truly a gem.

We were deeply saddened to learn that Muffaletta is clouding and this was our last chance to eat at one of our favorite places.

Nice food but very inattentive service for an early Sunday evening when there weren't many customers yet. Server checked in with us when we were seated but then disappeared for 20 minutes. We then decided to place our whole order of drinks, appetizers and entrees all at once since we were afraid he wouldn't come back. Our food came out fairly promptly after that, but we then waited a very long time to get our check so we could pay and leave. In the end we spent over 2 hours there of which about 30-40 minutes was spent just waiting for our server to come to our table. They've also reorganized the menu and looks like they no longer bring a complimentary bread basket anymore but make you pay for one, and when it arrived it was pretty skimpy for a party of 5. Overall, food was good and we liked some of their new menu offerings, but inattentive service detracted from the experience and will make us think twice before going back.

Three women were allowed to linger longly over lunch, and our server was accommodating, though a little scatter-brained. My fritto misto was a tasty and well-prepared plate, the special of the day, shepherd' pie, was reported to be good; beet salad was fresh and good, but way overboard on greens and light on cheese and seasoning.

The restaurant is a nice, spacious venue, though parking is difficult. Overall very pleasant.

As always, the food was excellent! Fresh fruits and vegetables, exceptional meat. The fact that Minnesota farmers are the source of some of the food is a plus. Nice variety of foods on the menu and a fun place for our family to meet and eat!! Our wait person was so attentive!

The food was flavorful, with reasonable portions and attention to quality and presentation. The service was attentive and professional. The setting was on the quieter side and very clean and comfortable. It was a very pleasant experience overall, and I would return and recommend without hesitation.
