Had a very nice and relaxing meal on a Monday evening. When you are on the patio it is like your not even in St. Paul any more! They do a great job. I had the lemon mussels. The broth was wonderful. Just as an...More

The patio is absolutely gorgeous, like a quaint, quiet little garden oasis. The food is to die for without exception. It's Cassette's level quality. Whenever they have buffalo mozzarella as a special, it is more than worth ordering. I will go back anytime with anyone....More

On Wednesday afternoon around 2:30pm went for a late lunch/early dinner at LaGrolla. Everything I have tried here has been good. They will give you a candle on your dessert if it is your birthday or a mint to go.

The service is excellent. The food is marvelous. And if the weather allows outdoor seating, the enclosed patio is stunningly beautiful and romantic.

This is truly the best Italian restaurant in the Twin Cities, and is the first stop with out-of-town guests. I highly recommend the Tagliatelle Bolognese, but the steak and seafood options are also outstanding.

This is our second visit to La Grolla. As before, the food was very good and in a couple of cases, excellent. My friend had a baked seafood pasta dish that was filled with seafood, but was much spicier than he expected. Nothing on the...More

I think having a reservation on the weekend is a must and really wouldn't hurt any other time. But for Lunch and early dinner you might get lucky without one.
