Best homemade pasta in country. We had the egg and lobster app which is a must have. The basics to the extravagant dishes. All are incredible

This is my favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities. It is great for just about any occasion and the food is amazing. It is great for large groups to share multiple dishes and not only is the food great the wine list is extensive. It offers any thing from simple pasta dishes to very unique northern Italian dishes.

Bar la Grassa is my favorite restaurant in Minneapolis. If you come earlier (right around 5pm), you can be seated shortly at the Pasta Bar without a reservation - and it's an amazing restaurant experience. You get a first-hand look of the hustle in the BLG kitchen. It's certainly a well oiled machine and fascinating to watch. Dinner and a... More

The food here is incredible! Everything came out fast and our drinks came out within minutes of sitting. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. We ordered the lobster and egg on bruschetta and it was great, I would compare it to a really good lobster eggs Benedict. The lamb meatball and spaghetti was delicious. The meatballs tasted like they... More

We visited with friends for an anniversary dinner. Received attentive service, atmosphere is a little loud, casual but upscale menu. The lobster egg app is worth returning for, most people love it. We did. Nice wine list, but we brought our own.

Used to live a few blocks from BLG. Was always crowded but locals know the secret to be "close to the action". The food is delicious and the service has always been great. Reservations are usually needed. This is a great spot for date night and small groups (no more than 6). The restaurant can be loud to have large... More

We go to Bar La Grassa (BLG) approximately 2-3 times per year. I always delivers. The food is Italian. It is a fun place to go with 4-6 people, as the plates can be shared - it's fun to try lots of different things. I have never had anything bad, but some things are not for everybody. The drinks are... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. It has a lively, loud atmosphere, but not so loud as to limit conversation. Knowledgeable and friendly service. The food is the main draw here--delicious and consistent. The soft egg and lobster bruschetta (melts in your mouth) and the pork shoulder bruschetta are two of my favorite choices on the menu....

I had heard so many good things about this restaurant, I was eager to try it out. It certainly lived up to expectations. Fantastic gourmet Italian food. It was a very noisy and lively place.

My husband and I ate dinner at Bar La Grassa in early December while visiting Minneapolis. The food was very good. We started with the aranchini with duck confit and taleggio and the seared scallops on black rice. The aranchini was fantastic, the scallops just average. We had the pasta negra with sea urchin chili and mussels and the mushroom... More
