Top Spots: Italian Food

Got a little bit of Roma in you? Hit up the best spots in Minneapolis Saint Paul to sauce up your dinner.

Pizza Luce 
Hello, pizza pie. A lot of former residents who live in pizza meccas like New York City are known to pine for Luce (pronounced loo-che). You can get the standard pepperoni here, but Luce’s menu errs on the eclectic, with Garlic Mashed Potato, Shrimp Al Pesto and Spanish Chicken leading the way (they also serve hogies, pasta and salad).

Buca di Beppo
Gather around the table and take part in a traditional Italian dinner. Don't plan on ordering your own thing; portions of this hearty Italian food come in family-sized dishes. Sharing is part of the culture here, so let it slide when grandpa hogs the breadsticks.

Historical architecture meets funky décor in this downtown Minneapolis institution. This one-of-a-kind atmosphere sets the bar high for true hospitality, and great locally inspired food.
