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.

    I love the ambiance and excellent service at Figlio but time and again the food has been just okay. Especially the pasta...not much flavor. Good ideas and combinations but frankly, my home cooking has more excitement to it. There are way too many interesting places to eat to go back for meh. So I think I'm done. If they reconsider the menu and bring it up a notch, I would try it again because I really love the space.

    It was just my husband and I and a Saturday night, so it was busy, I did make a reservation the day before. When we got there we were escorted to a 2 person table right next to the sink, the server station. i asked to be moved, you would literally have servers's butts in your face at that table, the table was so close to the station. we were moved to another 2 person table in a much better place. So that was good, but I really hate those small two person tables in any restaurant, they are just too small. Otherwise, had a very nice time.

    Figlio used to be a great date night destination but it seems to have lost its way. The last 3 times I've made reservations through Open Table they have tried to sit us adjacent to the open bus station. No one wants to sit there. The service was atrocious, 10 minutes before a welcome, no offer for drink refills and no checking in after our entree was delivered. The food used to be the saving grace, but for example, the usually flavorful calamari appetizer seemed to replace peppers and salt with slices of fried lemons. Needless to say, we're going to stay away for awhile.

    We had never been here before. At 6:30 on a Friday night we a arrived for our reservation and were seated shortly after. Our server was very friendly. We asked for a sample of wine, tasted it and ordered a bottle. It arrived at 7:05. We were hungry, and hadn't received any bread or been asked for our order. I found a host who retrieved a bread basket. We ordered about fifteen minutes later - baked ziti and house salad. The food was very good. We finished at 8:30. In summary, good food, reasonable prices, good employees but a disappointing experience. We couldn't get service when we needed it....two hours for a very simple meal! We won't be back.

    My husband and I had the halibut and it was spectacular! Our only complaint was that everything felt so rushed. I got my cocktail and within 5 minutes our appetizer came, then within 10 seconds the manager had our salads on the table. We never had a chance to just relax and enjoy each phase of our dinner. It wasn't very busy so I'm guessing the kitchen had nothing else to do. This is management and wait staffs responsibility to get the timing right. Surprised the manager didn't catch on???

    Came in for lunch on a Friday- I was surprised at how empty it was since this is supposedly one of the hotter places in the area. Seated promptly and server arrived for drink orders. After that, it went downhill. The bread came at the same time as our lunch and we were never offered refills on our drinks. The food was good though. Mentioned the issues to the manager & he did give us a discount on our bill which was unexpected and very appreciated. Would give it another chance.

    A group of us from work had lunch here. We were able to have a nice lunch in a reasonable amount of time without feeling rushed. We each ordered something different and enjoyed our food. All of our food was brought out at roughly the same time and none of it appeared to have been waiting. Our server was friendly, helpful, efficient, and not intrusive.

    We enjoyed dining on the outside patio away from the hot sun this day to celebrate a granddaughter's 14th birthday. The matre de made her feel special with a surprise Tuscan sunrise drink of blood orange juice and soda. No cheese pizza on the menu just a pepperoni pizza so we order a pepperoni pizza without the pepperoni, perfect. From the flavorful basil/garlic strozzapreti with it's rolled noodles and the steak salad with a generous piece of perfectly cooked steak everything was great. The birthday girl selected a complimentary dessert which arrived with a candle and a scrumptious chocolate/mouse cake and ice cream attached. Friendly and attentive staff made it a pleasant visit.

    It took a server over 20 minutes to initially come to our table during a non-busy lunch time. When a (replacement) server came, she was great and mentioned the server we were supposed to have was MIA. The dining experience was less than impressive though, especially when attempting to entertain a prospective client.

    The food was delicious, once you got over the fact that it was cold. With two fried appetizers on a dead Sunday night you'd have to assume at least one would be warm right? Service was pretty decent, not obtrusive, but not vacant either, despite the lateness with which we stayed. Feels a little too expensive for the portions we got however. Beautiful place to dine though, and the food would have been excellent(if overpriced) if it had been warm.

    Convenient location in West End, SLP. Peach panna cotta dessert was outstanding. Pasta was tasty, but small portions for price - not shareable. Delicious bread seemed to be by request (not offered, but provided). Unusual Cesaer salad - sparse dressing, topped with undercooked egg half - was large enough to share for lunch. Outdoor seating is along a busy street, so we chose to sit indoors. Decor is upscale, but waitstaff were in t-shirts. Music/vibe/service all seems to be tuned for the 20-something crowd.

    Entrees really missed the mark and they came out cold. ~ Ravioli dish seemed as if it came straight out of the frig. ~ Tortellini dish tasted like bad mushrooms leaving no room to taste any other flavors. ~ The Fish dish was fine but certainly did not have a freshness to it. Appetizers, desserts and wine were great! ~ Fried Olives where tasty ~ Wings had a lovely sauce ~ Chocolate was very nice ~ Cheese Cake had a nice Almond flavor ~ Bottle of Pinot Gris was wonderful Staff ~ Manager was very professional handling the entree situation ~ Waiter needs to enunciate and project not speak behind his teeth and mumble. Over all he was pleasant, professional, tried his best. People next to us had red pasta dishes. They were not impressed.

    The server was nice but was not knowledgeable about the wines at all! He told me the house "rosso" was a chardonnay. My son's meal was clearly ordered without parmesan and it arrived smothered in parmesan. The atmosphere is nice. The outdoor dining is small and on a main road with no fence or anything to separate the dining area from the walkers on the sidewalk. The food was fair to poor. Everything was overwhelmed by too much garlic.
