My joke when I walked in is this is what I want heaven to smell like when I die. It has the aromas that I remember growing up with. The food is very good and they have a nice selection of deli foods and desserts besides pizza and Stromboli. You can also get good bread sliced on site if you... More

We visit relatives in Mendota Heights at least once a year and somehow always end up here for lunch. The food is fresh and you can choose premade meals or put together your own pasta dish as you like prepared before you.

This is a great Italian market that does a great lunch, counter service. The pasta bar is amazing and cooked to order. Great takehome options for dinner too!

We have been going to this pasta bar for years because of the fresh ingredients of our choice, it really is wonderful. Everyone that works there has always been friendly. The last visit was less than enjoyable. People working, including the chef were very unfriendly, and no one smiling. Many new signs posted..'no this' no that' .. I don't know... More

As a whole food, plant-based diet woman, I wasn't sure what to expect coming to this restaurant. Some Italian places do plain tomato sauce sans meat but some don't. This place actually has a "build your own" pasta bar and salad bar. I was in HEAVEN! I ordered the tomato sauce with black olives, capers, and artichokes (you get to... More

I have just eaten the lasagne from Buon Giorno(or lasagna for you purists). I bought for takeout and am sitting here nearly numb with pleasure. I swear I was moaning at every bite. I have eaten lasagne at HUNDREDS of places: Italy, New York, Chicago, Minneapolis and so many more. Long ago addicted to the layers of delicious, tomato, meats... More

Great Italian food, with a pasta bar that allows many choices for your culinary tastes. Made on the spot! While waiting for our pasta, we often get a nice salad as well and it can easily be split in two, as servings are generous. In the summer there is both indoor and outdoor seating, which is super sweet having a... More

The Italian food here is authentic, and if you're going for the food alone, you couldn't choose a more delicious place to eat, and the coconut cream cake was fabulous! The atmosphere isn't cozy or anything but it is clean, and for a help-yourself sort of place, the prices aren't too bad. It's not cheap but I guess you don't... More

Chef was awesome. When checking out I asked the lady why none of the desserts were priced and she said " you are the first person to ask me that? I said I was sorry to inconvience Her.

In town for a business trip and this was the lunch destination. You can choose from sandwhiches, made to order pata bar, made to order salads, and many other choices. I originally had the pasta bar in mind until I saw the lasagna. The portion was large, but not too large, and came with a piece of bread. The lasagna... More
