Located across the street from our original deli, Broders' Cucina Italiana, Broders' Pasta Bar has taken the art of fresh pasta one step further. While the Cucina sells pasta to customers who want to cook at home, the pasta bar was designed to delight our customers with pasta cooked the way it is meant to be. Each of the 22 or so pasta and risotto on the menu are cooked to order and served steaming hot. Those seated at the bar get the best view of our pasta chefs cooking their dish, which is always 'al dente' and carefully tossed. This is not a pasta restaurant that ladles on white or red sauce nor is it a chain. Each dish gets an individual sauté of the highest quality fresh ingredie

Never again! Decided to revisit an old favorite in our old neighborhood. We were treated very poorly. It's too bad because we used to love Broders. There are too many awesome restaurants in Minneapolis to get treated like that ever again. We will not be back.

Check this place out! – Service was excellent! They were very accomodating to our large party. I left them in a bad spot leaving a large table open for longer then they would probably like and they were very understanding and worked with me. I had the linguini with Lobster and it was excellent! Flavors were great. Also tried the roasted garlic appetizer and it was very good as well. Love the cracker things in the bread baskets too!

Worth the wait The wait can be long--but with their revamped outside patio, it's much more enjoyable now. The food is delicious and the service is always great. They also have good week night deals for two people that make it very cheap for such amazing food.

The Best Broders' is among my very favorite restaurants in the twin cities. Their prices are reasonable and their food just fabulous. I take out-of-town vistors here whenever possible and have yet to have one complain! Nice atmosphere, great food, friendly service. There is often a wait, call ahead and get on the list when you can!

Slipping (but just a little) as she grows older – Broder's delivers the perfect recipe for relaxation and flavor, but should consider the customer's experience a little bit more. The ever circulating menu - though still wonderful - is recirculating upon itself a lot and it seems needs some new inspiration from the outside. That said (and in an impossible catch-22) don't' change a thing. Broder's is the perfect summer evening retreat. For love, or for loss.

Great Neighborhood Restaurant Broders is one of my favorite restaurants. It is one of the only restaurants that I will try something different everytime because I know everything on the menu is good. Usually I stick to my favorites, but at Broders I like to switch it up.

Quite a let down – The food was not as described on the menu. I waited almost an extra 45 minutes beyond my reservation to be seated. I also emailed Broders about my concerns prior to this post but they failed to respond to my concerns. Don't waste your time here.....believe me there are better things you can do with three hours!

great pasta - feels like Italy! – Very fun place to eat - small and cozy with a great neighborhood feel. I love its coziness, but on a busy night the wait can sometimes be frustrating. We made the mistake of not calling ahead once and waited quite a while, so now we have learned to call ahead. Still, it is worth a wait. We are close enough for take out, which we also enjoy, but the pasta (homemade) is absolutely best when you eat it there. I love the lamb/eggplant - especially on a cold night - real comfort food. Try not to fill up on the yummy bread basket because their pasta dishes are generous! The wine list is affordable and the service is friendly and knowledgeable. These kind of neighborhood spots are a great find and this is one of the best!

Gotta Love Broders – Broders is small, cramped and hard to get into but no one puts it out like they do. This place really makes pasta the is outstanding. You go there for the best plate of pasta in town. You have to try it to get it. I recommend calling ahead to get you name on the list.
