A word from Figlio
born 1984. reborn 2012.

The original Figlio sat in the heart of Uptown Minneapolis at the iconic corner of Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue from 1984 to 2009. For 25 years Figlio was the place for first dates, nights out with friends, and killer Italian cuisine.

Award-winning Executive Chef J.P. Samuelson is carrying on the Figlio legacy, staying true to everyone’s favorite signature dishes while introducing new Northern Italian and Mediterranean-inspired flavors resulting in a menu of lighter, healthier fare.

We’re like a reverse mullet; party in the front and business in the back.
General Manager Jennifer Baltes and her hospitality team compliment the incredible food with passionate & personalized service, delivered by our professional staff who embrace the old world concept that dining is more than just eating and drinking.

Diner Reviews
  • "1. Couldn't hear/understand our waiter. 2. Entree comes to the table 3 bites into the salad. 3. Chicken was overcooked and flavorless! 4. Dessert was DELICIOUS and saving grace of the night. 5. Upset stomach for both my date and me immediately after leaving."

  • "The place was very cute, however did not have many options for the restaurant week specials. Only 2 things to choose from. Also, our waiter was a bit slower than normal. But the food was great"

  • "This was not Figlio's shining day. Though the manager recognized it and comped the meal, so I'd try it again. They changed several of their menu items dramatically (and not for the better), but don't really tell you that. We had really poor service to boot. Oh well, they recognized it and made it right."

  • "We had a reservation for a group of 7 family members at Figlios. The experience was very good with the food and service. Our party sat inside next to the screened window and could take in the light outdoor breeze at our inside seats. The two appetizers, fried calamari and hot artichoke dip was great tasting. Many of us had the pistachio crusted halibut entree which was moist and flavorful. For a Thursday night, the establishment was at capacity and noisy. Additionally, it's a noisy location in the West End Shoppes due to the main street causing the traffic noise which affects the outside table diners. I would go again for a unique dining event."

  • "The service was sub par at best, the staff was rude including the hostess, the food was no where near worth what the prices are. I ordered a steak salad medium-well and the steak was still bright red. Too many other great food choices at the West End to go back here."

  • "After having moved from the area my wife and I were visiting the Minneapolis area and made reservations. We had very much enjoyed Figlio's when it was located in Calhoun Station and wanted to experience the new location. We found the service to be great. Our waiter was quick to greet us, professional and attentive to our wants and needs. The food was wonderful. We tried two appetizers (the calamari and the carpaccio) and found both to be very tasty. After two appetizers we chose to order a smaller entre. I had the smaller portion of tortellini while my wife had soup, a tomato, basil, and garlic soup. Both were well prepared and very good. We ended by sharing a fruit tart which had an amazing crust for dessert. We'll be back."

  • "I ordered shrimp pomodoro and the angelhair pasta was lumped together. It was as if it hadn't been stirred while boiling. The shrimp was soaked in butter which also isn't my preference. My friend ordered a lobster dish and felt she had to search to find the lobster plus the overall flavor was fine but nothing remarkable. Service was good and we enjoyed each other's company so much we didn't bother have food sent back for lumpy pasta."

  • "The old Figlio in Uptown smelled great, the food was great and the menu seemed broader. The new Figlio has a very limited pasta section, is very tame and bland"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "They changed the wings (previously my favorite) and other offerings. The food just isn't the same old Figlio. We were seated, but no wait person attended to us, until we asked. Others who arrived after us were being attended to before anyone paid attention to us."

  • "Out server dropped by the table maybe four times over an almost two hour experience there. Then, we watched her eat pizza off a back rack that was visible from our table and then immediately handle another table's food without washing her hands. Told the manager, who did nothing about it. Won't be going back."

  • "Longtime fan of the prior Figlio's in Uptown. Have tried the new West End location on 5 occasions for lunch. Each time the food was a disappointment. Several examples are pasta (undercooked), calamari ("new" recipe was greasy, undercooked, with fried lemon slices that we all mistook as edible, and the number of calamari pieces were maybe 12 at the most), pizza (over baked, cheese was microscopic), chicken pasta soup (advertised as the original Uptown recipe - it wasn't close). Food does not justify the prices. Our last tab for 4 with 1 shared app., 3 cokes, 1 beer, 2 sandwiches, 1 sm pizza and 1 bowl of soup was $84."

  • "Went out for a girls night. We were brought water but then our waitress did not even ask us what we wanted to drink when she came back 10 minutes later. We had to ask her!! One meal did not come out with everyone else's and by the time it did, part of it was raw. It took 2 hours to get through a meal for 6 of us because of the slow service. At one point the waitress even asked us if we were in a hurry. The manager comp'd a drink or side salad from each meal and the meal that arrived late and raw which was fitting and appreciative but she overly defended the waitress instead of being more apologetic about our poor service."

  • "We had not been to this new location. What a hidden gem. The food was just great!! We had bruchetta and carpacio and 2 kinds of pasta and hailibut. All were outstanding.Our server was terrific. We cannot wait to go back. Great place to go before a movie. Loved it!!"

  • "One steak overdone and one chicken satay undercooked. Not our best dining experience, with our service also being very slow at times. I would return, because maybe it was an off night in the kitchen."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I would not return. The food was O.K. The service was erratic. After visiting our table to deliver drinks, we had to find our waiter to take our order. After dinner, the coffee was lukewarm. It did not appear that the service was well-managed."

  • "First time at Figlio. Went with friends for lunch. We all ordered a lunch combo. Thought the server was attentive. I pointed out what I wanted and thought I was clear. As we wait I receive a salad. Asked server why no one else received their salad, he stated they ordered the combo (first clue). Food arrives and I have this massive pizza for four people (second clue). Food was great. I thought I was having the sausage flat bread (at least that's what I ordered) but instead I guess I had a sausage and apple pizza. All in all the bill came and my meal alone was 3 times what i ordered and server seemed appalled when I asked him to adjust. I would go back but I guess I'll make sure to have the server point out what I order next time."

  • "First, watch where you park. There is valet parking, so you might want to consider that. Otherwise, there is a lot around the corner from the restaurant where you can park. Do not park across the street at the Jimmy John's/Verizon/Rainbow parking lot....security patrols it and will have you towed...or so I heard. Now for the good stuff....Figlio has a nice outdoor seating area and it was a beautiful night, so I sat outside. I started off with a meatball bruchetta appetizer that was really good. I then had the hanger steak dinner, which was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Lastly, was a banana cake for desert. It was delicious. I will definitely be back. In addition, there are some great bars to walk to after the meal...."

  • "Was seated promptly by a pleasant young woman. The olive oil served for the bread I believe had worcestershire in it. Nice presentation but very weird taste. Had to request parmesan. I ordered linguini with clams and my date angel hair pomadoro with grilled shrimp. The "preserved lemon" was so overpowering I felt I was eating textured warm lemons. My date's response as to how her dish was - "it's ok". Our waiter was pleasant enough. When we were ready to leave, out waiter approached us again and said he mistakenly charged my card to another table. He voided my card and then recharged it and gave us the void and recharge copies saying "if you see two charges then you'll know what happened". Overall disappointing. Will not be returning."

  • "All the restaurant staff were friendly and welcoming. It was my first time there and I would definitely go back. The servers we had brought a funny and entertaining atmosphere to the table and were very helpful, especially on this first time visit. The menu has great options for all kinds of food lovers; it has more than just Italian food choices that taste great. The food was scrumptious, perfectly done, and came in a timely matter. The only draw back I notice was that the tables were kind of close to one another, but it did look like they had more spacious seating in back section of the restaurant. Overall, it was a pleasant experience that I would enjoy again."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This is a restaurant with no idea of mixing flavors, where no amount of oil is too much, where it is best to stick to appetizers."

  • "We were pleasantly surprised with both the service and the food. After seeing a movie at ICON we walked around the corner with our two hungry children. The hostess asked us if we wanted to be seated in the bar area or the dining room. Apparently, the bar has "happy hour" all day Sunday. We wouldn't have known this and were very happy to sit in the bar. She found us a great booth in the back of the bar - kids loved it. Our server was fabulous, asking us if we wanted to taste the "happy hour" wine before ordering. The manager even came over a few times to check on us. We felt like VIPs. Will definitely be back. "

  • "Have been here a few times, each time hoping for better. Took 20 minutes after drink order for service, asked 3x for water and had to send back one entree. There are better alternatives in the immediate area. "

  • "Service was very good. Unfortunately the Ahi Tune caused immediate illness for one of us. It was not well prepared and after a few bites caused a serious trip to the bathroom. Overall the food was just average and not worth the price."

  • "I remember Figlio's in Uptown fondly. Although the ambience and service is great at the new location, the food doesn't measure up. I had a salad for lunch and it was pretty unremarkable. "

  • "We ordered two different kinds of pasta and the steak/frites, and all were delicious. The frittes were perfect - small, crispy, and full of potato flavor. The service was great and everyone at the restaurant was friendly and helpful. Will go back!"

  • "I was disappointed that they had a Brunch and not the lunch menu that I was expecting. I was able to order lunch. My family enjoyed the Brunch.. This is all thanks to our host. The food was quite good and enjoyable.. No complaints"

  • "Frustrating to get to the restaurant for lunch on Sunday only to find that they only offer the buffet or the bar happy hour menu. This is not noted anywhere with the menus on their website. Fortunately the server was kind enough to accomodate my request of a salad as I have dietary restrictions. I would definitely not go back though, not to mention, the restaurant was dead. Clearly this is not something their customers want either."

  • "Had Rez. Traffic/road const Terrible. Late for Rez. Had prev requested Rez table AWAY from entry and away from kit. Due to being late (no fault of Figlio) only table avail was next to Hostess stand. Took it. BUT biggest prob was NOISE LEVEL. Undoubtedly perfect for Millennials, X Gen and younger. The din was deafening! Left without ordering. Sorry; I kno food is great, BUT"

Very efficient and pleasant. The food was beyond amazing! The variety outstanding! The size of the shrimp was HUGE! We could have not asked for a better experience! Thank you Figlios!"

  • "The waitress did a good job of recommending a wine. AFter that, it was all downhill. The chicken wings were not the Figlio wings of past. They were underdone and lacking the flavor of well prepared wings. My beet salad had little to no dressing, so lacked flavor. The wings to share, and my salad were served at the same time and the bread basket didn't arrive until a minute before the entre. The flavor of my son's dish was overpowering. This meal did not meet up to MPls restaurant standards."

  • "Service was great. Food was good. Between the three food dishes I ordered, two were excellent and one was a dud. I highly recommend the artichoke appetizer, and ravioli entre. The chicken cavatappi was much too salty for my taste. Overall, I enjoyed my experience and I will dine at Figlio again. "
