First visit to this restaurant. Food was above average. A bit pricey for what it is, but I think that's because of their location. Service was good, not outstanding, but very acceptable. Cute place and seems to be run very well. I would suggest trying if you have not been there and looking for this kind of food. The apps... More

A group of 6 adults went out for dinner and drinks and had a great time. We ordered 3 appetizers and 6 meals and everything tasted great! Top two choices were the glazed salmon and the gnocchi.

It had been a long day of visiting some must-sees in MSP and our feet were tired and imaginations short. Our adult child lives not far from Uptown and we headed there for a 2nd night. I had noticed the rooftop patio the night before on our way to another place and our child though that it was good. It... More

This is a perfect place for a date. Great Italian menu, a cozy yet classy atmosphere, fantastic music, and a friendly staff. It's a little overpriced, which is about the only thing keeping it from being a regular spot in Uptown. Italian is supposed to be about sitting back and enjoying indulgences- this has it.

Great setting, good staff. Food was good but took a long time to receive from the kitchen… Waitstaff was apologetic and many diners were annoyed. Cesar salad was lacking dressing, the balance of sauce on two separate pasta dishes seemed sloppy (too much on one, poorly mixed on the other), but taste overall was good. We generally enjoyed our visit,... More

I have not dined here since 2015 but any reviews from before Jan 2015 were under old management. Thought everyone might want to know! My neutral rating reflects that I have yet to visit.

We happened to be in uptown enjoying the nice day by the lake and casually went in for lunch. We were blown away by the amazing pasta selections and delicious appetizers. Service was excellent and the rooftop terrace is amazing. We will be back soon!

Amore Uptown has just been refreshed with great interior updates and some new menu items. Had lunch there recently and loved that there are some exciting new items on the menu, along with retaining the old favorites. We had the Amore roll and the Pasta Bella, both new on the menu and fabulous! We also enjoyed the Spaghetti and Meatballs,... More

We had a wonderful Italian dinner on a Sunday evening. The chicken masala was excellent as it had a slight kick to it. My wife enjoyed the chicken parm as well. As a CT native, we almost tried their New Haven style white pizza. The manager is from CT so it would have been interesting to try it as he... More

We are a neighborhood Italian restaurant. We serve Authentic Old World Classics with an Uptown Italian Twist. We ask our facility to work harder, we ask our staff to work harder and we ask our ingredients to work harder. When you come eat your likely to be recognized at the door, called by name and for sure appreciated. Our dinning room offers the best variety of tables in the Twin Cities. We can easily handle romantic two tops tucked away privately or tables in the main and subsequent dinning areas up to 40 and 50. We have our own parking in the back of the restaurant, arriving here is convenient. When Spring comes our rooftop deck is incredible. The only Cedar Rooftop Deck in the Twin Cities. Enjoying updated Old World Classics with a wonderful cocktail on a Rooftop Deck in Uptown Minneapolis is second to none.
