A word from Flour - Italian Kitchen
Inspired by the rustic simplicity of Italian cuisine, Chef Paul Minnillo offers Italian food to his new culinary venture in Cleveland, Ohio. From Flour’s larder, he creates his own house-cured meats, hand-crafted artisanal cheeses, pastas, neopolitan wood-fired pizzas and rustic Italian specialities. Flour seeks the freshest locally raised and homegrown products harvested at their seasonal peak. We do offer first come first serve patio seating. Continued

  • "Service was outstanding! Food was very good. Will be back!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I enjoyed lunch at Flour. I had the soup and salad combo (which by the way is a great value at $10!) with the Italian Wedding Soup and Cesar Salad. The soup was delicious, but a bit too salty for my taste. The salad was good - they used to serve it with a poached egg on top but have eliminated that."

  • "We ordered date wrapped appetizers with marinara sauce. Was beyond awesome!!! Then ordered flat bread pizza which was great as well. Then, we topped it off with Pestachio cake. Restaurant did great job to accommodate my food allergies and I felt special and enjoyed every minute of it. Great birthday night."

  • "Dinner Saturday night was delicious...We were so fortunate to have Matthew and Michael as our servers..Terrific service and they truly made the evening very enjoyable from start to finish...My one and only complaint of this lovely restaurant is the noise level....We tried the back room which is carpeted and it wasn't any quieter...Very hard to hear in this restaurant on busy evenings...so beware. Highly recommend the Short Ribs and the Salmon Entrees!"

  • "I love going to Flour for lunch. I asked my high school girl friends to have lunch there because the food is great & it is a cool venue. They loved their meal & thought the pizza was the best they've had! I love the fresh salad & bread. The desert (pistachio cakes) was amazing. I recommended Flour because you aren't rushed there it is a perfect place for lunch & visiting!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Flour is just OK. Paul Minnillo is an amazing chef but the concept doesn't allow him to exercise his immense talents. The food is good but not great like it was at the Baricelli."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The food and service was perfect! The waitress was well versed on the menu and easily recommended very good entrees!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Had lots of different dishes since Flour opened. They're usually great. But if you want pizza, there's none better in Cleveland."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Every time: excellent food, excellent service. Love Tuesday wine special. Love Happy Hour. Delicious salads, pasta and pizza."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "First time at Flour, did not find the dinner menu particularly inspiring. Service was just right, not pushy or rushed. Was disappointed in the pizza I ordered - sauce was not flavorful and basil was just charred leaves."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Anyone who tries Flour for Sunday Brunch will leave completely satisfied! Great menu, great service and overall a great dining experience! There was not one menu item that we ordered that we didn't love. The breakfast pizza and the eggs benedict were two of our favorites!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Great evening at Flour with a party of 6...we had outstanding service and the everyone LOVED their meals...My husband said it was the BEST salmon he's had!...He loved the way it was prepared and served...Other's had the braised short ribs and sod shell crab....Outstanding was the unanimous opinion by all"

  • "So I had a friend over for lunch at Flour and we settled down to have a light soup and sandwich affair. The white bean soup - while elegantly constructed - with tomato and chard and white beans disappointed in the extreme - every single bean I bit into was either undercooked or not cooked through. I realize you may think beans are like pasta and they can be al dente but I disagree - not really nice to have the bean skin peel off in your mouth because it is not cooked properly. I distinctly remember (and my companion confirmed) that I ordered a grilled veggie Panini. Only after I bit into it twice and separated the bread - did I discover that I was served a P.L.T. with bacon - seeing how I am a vegetarian - there was no excuse for it!"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "Eggs Benadict and Cesar salad perfect. Also breakfast Panni delicious."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The food and service were top shelf. The only drawback was the noise level was high due to high ceilings and bare floors."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Good food, but limited menu on Sunday evenings for choices. I have had lunch here and have had a great selection. Very good food from good sources at a great price."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "This was our second time at Flour. As with the first time we had a server who was excellent, providing wonderful feedback and suggestions about the menu. She was attentive to our needs. The food came swiftly from the kitchen, and was very good. Prices are not cheap, but the portion size was quite acceptable, and the quality of the food was very good. Let's put it this way... we enjoyed it enough the first time to come back, and we enjoyed our meal and service equally the second time-- we will be back to enjoy more. Suggestion: if you're there as a couple, split two smaller portions of the pasta, entitling you to a chance to try more delectables off the menu."

  • "To celebrate a special occasion this is the place!!! We enjoyed a pizza to start, and the entrée that was listed on Yelp, was perfect... the short ribs!!! The gnocchi was also a hit and would highly recommend. We will be back - one of the top spots in the CLE food scene. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Food was very good. Loved the mussels. Great service."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "My wife and I both orderd the braised beef ribs and they were awesome! Seasoned to perfection. Our waitress was fun and very knowlegdeable about the menu. After she was done explaining how the beef ribs were prepared, we had to order them. Awesome experience! Would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Very little sound absorbing material and lots of diners in a big space makes for uncomfortable noise. The food though, has returned to the better level of the old days when Flour first opened. Great pizza, inventive specials...beef cheek tortellini, a good wine list (priced on the high side), make Flour a place you need to try. Service though can be uneven. There are several restaurants with great wine lists and inventive menus at better prices and more professional staff in the area."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I never like to leave negative reviews but I felt compelled to share my expirence. I dined in for lunch and the problems started almost immediately. It took at least ten minutes from the the time I was seated until any waitstaff came by. The waitress was completely unattentive. It also probably took almost thirty minutes to get a Caesar salad and an appetizer. Both dishes were completely underwhelming. And expensive. I don't mind paying more for a quality dish, but I would've been more satisfied with a grocery store salad bar. It was one of the worst all-around expirence I've ever had at an opentable restaurant. I highly doubt I will ever give it another chance, and I certainly will never take a client there."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "There is a lot so sausage, chorizo, salami on the menu which limits choice. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "With the exception of the Veal Chop (needs a lot more quality control) the rest of the meal was excellent and the service was above average."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This was our second visit to Flour, and it was no better or worse. The Caesar chicken salad had the smallest amount of chicken breast I'd ever seen, thought the salad was fresh and well-dressed. There was not much on the menu that appealed to us, but that could just be our tastes. With all the lunch options in the area, I'd choose another restaurant before returning here. "
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Why make a reservation when its not honored? arrived to a 30 minute wait along with others. Food arrived after a long wait cold. Food was average but moderately priced and ample portions. Will not return on weekends or peak time."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "The food was very good, but not good enough to justify what they charged for it. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "I took my friend here for her birthday and it was very enjoyable. She has dietary restrictions and the waiter went out of his way to accomodate. He was very polite and efficient. My chicken salad was very good. The pistascio cake was a little dry but the presentation was pretty. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Service is way to slow : for 2 pizzas and 6 salads it took over one and a half hrs"
    Dined on 5/12/2014
  • "everything was just as it should have been on mother's day at flour. great service, beautiful food presentation and wonderful taste and flavors."

  • "Came after theater matinee. Had an excellent waitress and efficient service. This was out second time there. Much better experience than the 1st."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Friendly and fast service. We were headed to a school play and did not have much time. Flour was able to get us out the door in under 45 min with drink and food orders. Will be back when I can sit down and enjoy the surroundings as this looks like a neighborhood gem."
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Service is exceptional, friendly and just right. Extensive Italian wine list - which is great for us because we know nothing about Italian wines. Every time we go there and ask for recommendations - they hit it on the mark. Food... fresh, tasty and terrific! "
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Have been to flour several times and always enjoy the consistently good food, service and ambiance. Enjoyed delicious Italian red wine by the glass and a specialty pizza - very similar to one of my faves - marguerita pizza but with a tomato butter sauce and drizzled with avocado oil. Delicious. Salads are yummy and quite large. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "The restaurant has a vibrant atmosphere and the food/service is excellent."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "The food was incredible as always. Ambiance terrible-brown paper on table, hideous window coverings, uncomfortable chairs. Waitress was never at our table except to ask us if we wanted another round of drinks. She never filled our water glasses. She wanted to charge us to split our salad in half-that is cheap and low class-especially because it was a simple cesar salad (not a composed salad) AND IT WAS $12!!. We ordered the full pasta portion, but it was smaller than when we ordered the half portion last time. Overall, the food is off the charts amazing, but they need to get their service, ambiance, and cheapness under control."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "Portions were extremely small and way overpriced. The cost of a large entree was nearly $33. In my opinion it was the size of a normal size entree at most restaurants. If you are looking to leave hungry and with less money in your pocket, this is the place to go. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We had a group of four of us and everyone tried something different. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable and great! We all loved what we had (salads, pastas, and a burger, I think...). We weren't rushed and thoroughly enjoyed the evening."
    Dined on 4/23/2014
  • "Food was fantastic, service was excellent, but the noise level was exceedingly high and distracting. I personally would come to have dinner as I thought the food was great but would not recommend for a business dinner."
