This place is extrodinary. It always is ranked top on all the local restaurant lists and it never disappoints. It is a small intimate restaurant with superb Italian cuisine. It is fun to watch the kitchen from the counter seating. We have been coming here...More

I took the recommendation to go to Broder's from one of my buddies who is an Exec Chef. The pasta is handmade and they have Sicilian wine. I could see why he recommended it. Best pasta in the cities.

Delightful evening out! Even the 3 year old granddaughter had menu selections beyond chicken fingers (I didn’t know chickens had fingers).

Borders has NEVER disappointed us. The food is superb with a seasonally changing menu. Prices are a bit high but the food quality is well worth it. No reservations, so you’ll likely have to wait, but you can visit their wine bar across the street...More

The Pasta Bar does not deliver. Broders does have another deli across the street that does deliver excellent pizza and other Italian hot and cold foods.

I do not see one on the current menu. Worth an inquiry but I would probably say, no.

Since 1994 Broders' Pasta Bar has been serving house made and quality imported pastas and risottos, focusing both on Italian regional traditions as well as seasonal & local ingredients. We source from Midwest farms, when possible, and grow vegetables in our own parking lot garden (weather permitting, of course!) but really, it's about the pasta. Located across W. 50th Street from Broders’ Cucina Italiana, the original deli and specialty food shop, Molly and Tom Broder opened the Pasta Bar - to cook the pasta they were selling the way it was meant to be: fresh, al dente, perfectly sauced and thoughtfully executed. Still, and always, family owned and operated, Broders' continually strives to serve great Italian food and wine from our corner in Southwest Minneapolis. We hope to welcome you, whether at the Cucina, Pasta Bar, or the newest addition, Terzo, our contemporary Italian restaurant & wine bar. Saluti!
