We had dinner there with another couple on a Saturday night. Our table was available within minutes of us arriving, the service was wonderful, and the wine list adequate and reasonably priced. The atmosphere was friendly and just the right noise level; decor was spartan but fine. The ciabatta bread was good. The salads (they even had anchovies!) and entree's... More

the food is pretty good, what there is of it. be forewarned the portions are small. the prices are on the high side. service is ok to good. parking can be difficult though they do have their own small lot. minneapolis st. paul is not known for its italian restaurants but this one is ok or average at best.

My husband and I visited for a date night, as we live only a few blocks away. The staff were great, and we felt very welcome. The atmosphere is quaint and warm, and we felt very comfortable at our romantic table by the window. The chef's tasting menu was suggested since it was our first time. It included several courses,...

The service and food have always been excellent (with the exception of many of the soups - tend to be too salty for my taste).

What a wonderful experience we had at this family restaurant that serves exquisite organic and farm-to-table food with a real Italian flair (we can say that because we lived in Milan and travelled all through Italy for the last 5 years!). White tablecloths and truly pleasant service along with an ambiance that allowed for good conversation really made the evening... More

We chose this restaurant from the reviews on trip advisor. This is a very nice locally owned, locally sourced restaurant. It has a nice neighborhood feel. Ambience was great for conversation. Waitstaff were attentive and not overbearing or pretentious. We'd recommend this restaurant for a nice Italian dinner.

Every time I visit St. Paul, I am happy to have dinner at Luci Ancorra, and every time I do, I order the Prezzo Fisso which includes an antipasto, soup or salad, pasta, and either fish or Kobe beef entree. I've never been disappointed and never walked away hungry. The antipasto and fish are chefs choice daily while the salads,... More

You cannot go wrong with anything on the menu/fresh sheet!! I personally recommend courses, so you can taste everything! Warm fresh-baked crusty bread with butter, caesar salad with homemade dressing..to die for (I like with extra anchovies), salmon (any fish you order will melt in your mouth), butternut squash ravioli...yum, finish off with gelato or chocolate flourless cake with coffee...

My wife and I went to try Luci Ancora on great reviews from friends. We went on a Tuesday evening and did the tasting menu. Each course was wonderful. The chicken liver pate was out of this world.
