Not Family Friendly – I would not recomend this place. They are not family friendly. We were at the Mall of America at 6:00pm on a Saturday and they refused to seat us until after 7:40pm because we had 5 people. (our family)
Loved my waiter! – Waiter was funny, attentive, and knowledgeable about the food on the menu. This is the best waiter I have ever had. It was my birthday and everything he recommended I order was delicious. Even talked my partner into ordering a veal, cooked medium rare which she would normally never do. Afterwards she said it was the best. Loved the place, would visit again, and definitely would recommend to everyone.
One of my favorite restaurants – Tucci Benucch is located in the Mall of America. You can find it on the first floor by following the aroma of garlic! The restaurant is decorated in old Italian farmhouse antiques and is very cozy. It does not seem like you are in the mall. The servers are very attentive, your water or wine glass will not go empty! The hardest thing is choosing a menu item. No matter what entre I order I always get the stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer. They are stuffed with spinach, bread crumbs and parmesean cheese.
The restaurant also has a pizza and a children's menu. I've noticed many families enjoying their food here. It's simply the best restaurant at the Mall of America and doesn't cost much more than the redundant food at the food court.
Tasty – It's crowded, but then again, it's at Mall of America. I like this place - all the food is good. I've tried a lot of the menu items and you really can't go wrong with experimenting. I've taken to ordering the specials just for that reason. They have a decent wine list, lots of tasty bread and olive oil, and if you still have room - delicious desserts. It gets crowded at nights, I suggest reservations if you're going on a weekend night.
...mmm, love the chicken – I have been to this place probably four or five times, and the first time I tried the angel hair marinara, I think, and it was ok. Then the next time i tried the classic lemon chicken, and it was the best chicken dinner I have ever had, it comes baked with a lemon-garlic sauce with fresh lemons and garlic mashed potatos, the chicken is juicy, and be sure to ask for extra lemons, it gives and extra kick.
The upscale southern Italian cooking is an offer you can't refuse. – In Short
The restaurant features seven unique rooms based on a country-villa floor plan, including a wine room, bedroom, barn, patio and kitchen. Each room is decorated accordingly; a worn scythe and saddle hang from the wooden barn walls, while Chianti bottles adorn the wine room. From the first bite of the tangy antipasti salad, you may believe that Mama is working the kitchen. The pizza takes a traditional thin-crust recipe with portobello mushrooms and asparagus.
My favorite! – Tucci Bennuch is definately one of my favorite places to eat in the Twin Cities. It's always packed, so call ahead if you don't like to wait! Has great food, make sure you try the baked spaghetti!
No Bar? – I recently went there for a work outing involving 30 people on a Thursday night. We decided to meet 30 minutes before our reservation for drinks, however there was no bar to do so! No matter, we were seated right away and were waited on. But a restaraunt without a bar area? I've never seen such a thing and I go out a lot.
Food was average, nothing special except for the a salad that was on the menu as "The Greatest Salad" or something like that. And it was.
Place was packed on a Thurs night at 7:00.
GRRRR Remodeled – The food's still exquisite, however the menu as well as the restaraunt it's self has changed. They seem to have raised the prices however to help pay for the remodeling that should not have taken place. They ruined some of the ambiance it looks now like just another restaraunt, not the unique homey charm it used to have. I believe they have raised their prices also along with revamping their menu to pay for the unnessasary remodeling.
Don't get me wrong the calamri is to die for especially with the garlic sauce and you have not tasted tiramisu until you have had it here ( that is if you still have room for it)
You no longer have to wait nearby any longer they have a "pager" that lets you know when you table is ready.
Plus they participate in the kids eat free promotion the mall offers on Tuesdays.
Great Service – From the time we stepped in till we left, we were treated like royalty.
