This was one of my favorite restaurants and had been going there weekly since they opened. I was disgusted to hear that the Mall of America doubled their costs on their lease forcing them out of business. Given the size of the mall you would think there would be ample choices fir dining, but there aren’t. Crave has horrible service and Margaretaville is pretty blah.

my sisters and dad have been coming here every year for 25 years and are so very sad to see it close. I understand because of lease increase, what a sad reason to close. Boo to MOA for doing that to one of its first restaurants to make more money. Tucci is the reason I ever came to MOA as its food and service was always wonderful. I truly hope you think of a new location as you would have a full restaurant daily.
I will miss it greatly.

This is the only restaurant we eat at when at MOA. I can’t believe they are closing. I can’t believe MOA wanted them to move and increase the rent 20%!! I hope they find a space to rent or purchase somewhere else and reopen! We love the food!! My family will surely miss going there!

Simply wonderful. Our service was spectacular and the food was great except the italian sausage. Indeed the baked spaghetti is out of this world good. Shame on MOA for not giving them fair terms to renew their lease. This venue will be greatly missed.

This was in the MOA and was packed due to Super Bowl week. We made rez. Had great service. Good food. Thankful for the gluten free options. Good wine. But heard the mall is shutting down this restaurant because they have other plans for the space.

I am very saddened this place is shutting its doors for good at the end of this week-end.

we've been going for about 12 years, at least 2-3 times a year and this place is the single most consistent quality restaurant I've ever been to. service has always been top notch. The beer and wine list is small but contains good options, the food variety is narrow but all scrumptious. Their attention to detail is phenominal, ambiance is spot on, albeit looking a bit dated as this was an original tenant of the mall at opening back in 1991.

Thank you Tucci and staff. We'll always fondly remember this place, and hope your plans to not bring a new location elsewhere change!

Been wanting to visit this restaurant for years, so happy I got to go! Loved the service, the wine, and my husband's baked spaghetti. So glad they were able to feed people and offer great experiences for 25 years! Only knew their food through this one visit, but I will certainly miss them after February 4th.

Really enjoyed my last time going to Tucci. It is very unfortunate that the mall went up on the rent so much and now they're closing after 20 years of being there. Hopefully they'll open up another location in the twin cities.

We went to Tucci Benucch for one last dinner/birthday celebration before the restaurant closes for good. We are very sad to see it go. We would love it if they would open a new restaurant outside of the mall. We had great food and great service.

This was a goodbye visit since Tucci Benucch is going to close on February 4, 2018. We have been longtime customers and regret its departure from the Mall of America. Tucci was one of the original tenants and has been there for 25 years. I had to decide which of the specialties to have on this visit.
We had a good experience and it will be a pleasant memory.

Been my go to restaurant for many years of going to the MOA! Really sad to see this closing. My last two visits there we've had the same waiter, Sean. He gets how to treat the customer...goes the extra mile, very attentive, and friendly. Tucci, you WILL be missed!!!

Service was just terrible. Seemed like server was bothered to be serving us. Didn’t greet table for 10 minutes. Sat there without water, plates or utensils after being sat. She didn’t even greet us or apologize when she showed up but instead wanted to know if we were ready to order. She never came back to check on us or offer refills. Terrible. Food was good as usual. Maybe good this location is not going to be open for much longer.
