I imagined it would be more than Olive Garden

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. I was excited because I've wanted to come here for years-- it seems very fancy from street level. We did not go in the restaurant proper, but went to the rooftop. The atmosphere was a little more sports bar than I expected--slightly loud music, dirty... read more

I came here on a Friday night with my family and friends for drinks and apps. The service was painfully slow and the waiter never checked back to see if everything was ok after our food was delivered. We ordered caprese salad for ten dollars which consisted of four slices of mozzarella with a basil leaf a large slice of... More

I am giving this the excellent rating because this is a true neighborhood joint. The owners are vibrant in the community and they are still doing the same things they did when they opened...house made meatballs, Italian sausage, pasta, sauces. And the fact that they still make theoer own bread (which is incredible by the way) is impressive. Many restaurants... More

We dined on the roof with friends. The food was excellent and the rooftop dining was great. We had a very nice, casual dinner. I would definitely go here again.

They start you off with warm, house Italian bread. They had me at the bread. Everything else here just fell into place, especially the Rosa de Pesto, a stuffed chicken dish in a rich, creamy balsamic sauce that will make your mouth water. I am still thinking about that dish a week later..YUM The rest of the dishes served at... More

You would think having such a big deck right near the lakes you would have good people serving .. The food tasted terrible!!! sauce tasted like it came out of the can, tomatoes on the Caprice salad were the worst I've ever had it was like they were frozen defrosted and then put on the plate !!!! The servers running... More

Our experience at this well-regarded restaurant, was marred by a series of faux pas, namely no bread provided, no wine glasses available until after our first bottle had been consumed and my steak which was supposed to be medium-well done turning out be be rare! This meant I had to ask for another to be cooked and ended up eating... More

My beloved Amore Victoria, what has happened with you? For the second time disappointment was the name. A menu online not reflecting what you really serve? An Angus steak more like a truck stop diner? Pasta so dry I had to request a white sauce just to make it edible? The aroma and taste of assorted fresh bread only a... More

Would I have written this review last year I would have given them almost a maximum rating. But I went there last Friday - one of the first nice and warm evenings in Mpls and therefore perfect for the rooftop of AV. Not only we had to wait to order a drink at the bar because all the tables were... More
