Yes it's loud and the service can be a little bit haphazard (that being said our waiter was a true professional..). But, man, the food.. Phenomenal. Started with Arancini with duck confit and white anchovies with avocado bruschetta. Unbelievably good. Next course: smoked linguine with...More

I traveled all over Europe and Ian and some of the nicest restaurants in Spain. This place is as close as you can get to real Spanish tapas. I have eaten in the main dining room, the front bar, and the back kitchen counter. Every...More

Bar La Grossa takes some typical menu fare and makes the item unique. The food is amazing and service is very good. A definite spot to return to often!

Everything about this restaurant is top notch - food, service, cocktails. It's the place I take out-of-town guests to when they come to visit Minneapolis.

I'd call to ask. They have plenty of home made pasta and might modify if you request it.
