Saint Paul is known for some classic Italian staples, and DeGidio’s has been one of those staples since it opened in 1933. Spaghetti or mostaccioli with their classic tomato sauce has been their house specialty for more than 80 years. Your biggest decision will be whether to order one meatball or two.
This family business has been pumping out all the spaghetti and meatballs and garlic toast for over 60 years, so you know it must be good. Fire up your stomach with the spicy fried ravioli as a starter and top it all off with a slice of tiramisu.
When Red Rabbit hopped the river to open a second location on Grand Avenue, they brought their fantastic Italian pastas with them. Pair your linguine with a slice of wood-fired pizza for the full taste experience.
You can’t say that you’ve been to Saint Paul if you’ve never stopped at Cossetta’s. For more than 100 years, this has been a favorite restaurant for fresh pizzas, pasta, salads and desserts, and check out Louis upstairs for a more refined feel.
Buca di Beppo
If you need to bring everyone together for pasta, Buca di Beppo's family-style portions are always a safe bet.
Handmade and hand-rolled pasta might be what Highland Park’s Luci Ancora does best. The four-course Taster’s Dinner is offered every night, and you’ll get to try the best dishes on the menu that night, including the daily pasta.
