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.
It is a HUGE shame they closed this restaurant. A loss for the Mall of America.
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.
Sorry to see it close, it was a nice option at the Mall
Closing wish it would
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.
We are so sad that this restaurant is closing. We have had many good meals here over the years and the service has always been very good. Please reopen in another spot in the MOA, Tucci!
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!
