Went here the other week for Sunday brunch - we wanted to try a new place. Nicole was AWESOME! She was very attentive, suggested good food and took great care of us. Brunch food was really good - there were 6 of us and we all liked what we got. Their potatoes and pancakes were raved about. I will be... More

Good Italian food in a relaxed atmosphere. You won't be amazed by the food, but it is consistent and good. The big draw here is the rooftop patio. Definitely worth a visit in the summer.

There are a lot of choices to enjoy happy hour in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, so Amore Uptown expanded and enhanced their happy hour offerings. $5 glasses of wine, so I can finally enjoy a rose. They have a nice beer selection including the Italian Ale, Moretti, for $4 during happy hour. Brian serves up a nice list of... More

This place used to be one of our favorites but last two visits have been poor experiences. Service was poor both visits within the last two months. Servers weren't exceptionally busy but would disappear for long periods, fail to come back and follow-up, etc. Really a shame and no excuse. Plan for at least 1 1/2 hours for dinner at... More

I hosted a corporate dinner at this restaurant and was very pleased with the food as well as the staff. We were given a private event room and dinners were $35/person including appetizers, salad, entree, and dessert. We thought this price was decent compared to other offerings in the area.

Went here for a business dinner. The service was very good and everyone enjoyed their meals from Lasagna to Polo Marsala. The calamari & bruschetta appetizers were very good as well as the desserts. The ambiance & friendly staff made a business meeting quite tolerable. I would recommend it. They even have parking available behind the building.

Delicious Italian fare...hard to choose from wide variety of entrees. The beet salad was exceptional. Great ambiance, reminded me of some of my favorites back home in Chicago...turned out their new general manager, McHugh, was from Chicago. The wine rounded out an excellent evening...a wonderful Spanish Tempranillo. Will definitely try them again next time I'm in town.

I've heard that Amore Vitoria was recently rebranded as Amore Uptown and many people inidicated that the place is much better now. Well, there are a couple of improvements. But first the bad part. Food did not improve. It's OK, but not great. The service is better than before but they still need to work on friendliness of their staff.... More

Loved the welcoming atmosphere and the food was delicious. Obviously fresh ingredients and great options. I had the Frittata and it was the best I've had. Rooftop was also open but a bit too windy for me.

Thank pegspe

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.
