La Grolla

452 Selby Ave. St. Paul, MN 55102 | St. Paul (Downtown) | 651-221-1061

Location Description:

Warm, welcoming, and garlic-scented. If there were an encyclopedia of restaurants, La Grolla would be the one pictured under the heading "ideal upscale neighborhood Italian." Servers are cheery, confident, and a joy to work with. Ribeyes in Roquefort sauce are tender, caramelized, rich, and, in essence, a party on a plate. Lunches are budget priced. And while the restaurant isn't all that rigorously Italian (skip the unfeeling osso bucco), it excels at the restaurant-only treats (gorgeous calamari) you want when you're on a cozy date or part of a more jolly celebration. The enormous outdoor patio is a summertime charmer, a perfect place to put a bottle of Pinot Grigio in a chiller and contemplate the fact that the same moon that beams upon Italy beams on your own lucky head.
