I'd recommend Amore to anyone who'd like to do more than "classic" Italian food in the US, ie pizza and mainstream pasta. We have sampled quite a few dishes here and I can certainly recommend the bruschetta and carpaccio for starters. I'd opt for the...More

Beautiful place in Uptown. A few years ago they've added a rooftop patio and it is awesome. I miss their big and super delicious meatball appetizer, but they still have some pretty amazing apps on their happy hour menu. We will be back

This restaurant has been around for years (previously Amore Victoria) but for some reason I never bothered to go. Sorry I waited so long! Had 6:00 reservations on a Saturday and was surprised that they were nearly empty. By 7:30, there were just a few...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.
