Though I have been a Twin Cities resident for some time, I'd not yet gotten to enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of this St. Paul "conglomerate". Now, they're not a true conglomerate, by any means, but they do seem to have cornered the market on great Italian fare in the St. Paul area. The buidling is quite large and includes separate destinations for take n' eat Italian favorites, packaged Italian deli, Italian desserts and pastries, and even a 3rd floor fine-dining restaurtant and patio.
I couldn't believe how much Italian goodness they pack into this building. To be fair, it's busy, big and always bustling... but it's hard not to fall in love with it, in all aspects. Don't take my word for it though, check out the picks below
Take a stroll in the market areas:
|Gorgeous gift options|
Take a drink upstairs, outside, with fine views:
|Peroni on tap, of course!|
Take in some Italian favorites:
|Sausage Calabrese, and all entrees come with a side of Mostaccioli with Ricotta and garlic bread|
And perhaps take dessert home (or eat it there like we did, mini chocolate canoli):
As if you still have any doubt, you gotta check this place out! Go!
