This is my favorite restaurant in Minneapolis, and I've tried plenty. I'd HIGHLY recommend the soft eggs & lobster bruschetta, one of the best appetizers I've ever had. Prices pretty reasonable. Also, really cool ambiance in a trendy neighborhood. Check it out!

Was recently a guest of my boss. They ordered for the table and we shared all the food ordered. The. Food was amazing, and had amazing flavors. The service was flawless with our dishes cleared and replaced between flights of food. What a treat!

Bar La Grassa is my favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities. Every dish I've had there is superb and their drinks are excellent. Try one of their many Bruschettas and their St. Louis Ribs--you will not be disappointed. The chocolate pot for dessert is my favorite dessert in Minneapolis.

The scallops were just ok for us, prefer a harder sear. The crab ravioli was good but paled in comparison to the smoked spaghetti with lobster. I... More

We stopped in at 5:15 pm on a Saturday without a reservation- bar was packed, but hostess stand handled the crowd very well, we sat in bar about 20 mins later. We always start with the lobster bruschetta- delish, and shared a veal paparedelle (hands down best tomato sauce)and a pasta negra with mussels( spicey in a good way) and... More

I went here for a birthday dinner, it was my first time at the restaurant. From start to finish I would rate it highly, delicious Italian food (not too heavy, not too light), terrific service, prices were reasonable given the quality and popularity of the restaurant.

Antipasto choices, Bruschetta choices, Dry pasta choices, Fresh pasta choices, Filled pasta choices, Secondi (main entrees) and Sides! Of course, desserts, too! There are small plates, and larger sizes. I've been there... More
