La Grolla - St Paul, MN

Walking down Selby Avenue in St Paul on a cloudy day, my family and I found ourselves in need of a light lunch. Passing by La Grolla Italian Ristorante, we noticed a number of people sitting at a charming outdoor patio and decided to give it a try. We had to go inside to get to the patio, and we thought the inside had a nice atmosphere and would provide a romantic setting for any couple wanting an evening out. However, we wanted to catch a few rays of Minnesota's fleeting sun.

Not wanting to go too heavy for lunch, we opted for the beef and vegetable soup, which was perfect for the weather outside, which was quickly turning cooler. Along with the soup, the server brought us warm bread with olive oil and herbs for dipping. For drinks, we had a glass of chianti. Altogether, it was a lovely lunch with good service. Now, if only I would have had time to go back and try the dinner menu, things would have been perfect. Too many places to try this trip and not enough time.
