A word from Parma 8200
PARMA 8200 is a moderately priced Italian eatery evoking the city of Parma, in the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna famous for its architecture, countryside, dining, agriculture—whose artisan ingredients are a culinary staple used throughout Italy and features classic and traditional Italian dishes from all parts of the country.



The restaurant’s spectacular, foodie-friendly antipasti bar featuring salads, appetizers, Italian meats and cheeses, fresh fruits, vegetables and crudo—where diners can enjoy front row seating as Chefs prepare food. PARMA 8200 showcases Richard D’Amico’s signature interior and exterior design highlighted by a strong dark-wood design motif which is casually sophisticated and elegant – evocative of a martini bar you’d find in Milan or Rome and has a unique outdoor patio features dining, lounging and an outdoor pool table.

Diner Reviews
  • "My wife, daughter and I dined at parma and had a great time. The patio was beautiful and the food and service were even better. We had the cheese plate and rice balls, both were great. Then the apple salad and finally the linguine and clams and the ravioli. All of the food was prepared perfectly, and the nice bottle of Arneis completed the meal. The staff was courteous and attentive and made us feel comfotable yet well taken care of. Another great time at parma."

  • "I have dined many times at Parma 8200, and this time did not fail to live up to the deliciousness I have come to expect. I had the Salmon, and they prepared it for me minus the peppers in the avocado/ceci bean relish. It was delicious, and prepared perfectly. Thank you for yet another wonderful meal!"

  • "The Butterscotch Panna Cotta is our favorite! Love the date night, affordable, great options. A must!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Wait service was timely, professional, accurate, and attentive. Bus service was laggardly. Though water glasses were filled promptly, it took way too long (~15 minutes) to clear finished plates, when it was obvious that everyone had finished their meals. The risotto with the osso bucco was soupy and undefined. The jazz combo was excellent, and though their sound carried into the main dining area, it was not too intrusive."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Is sparse outside of pasta selections. More than one special a night instead of one special per night that never changes. Wine list is still good. Feel like the menu needs a complete do over"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We thought this was a brand new restaurant because we came upon it unexpectedly once evening and had not heard about it. Very surprised to find out it has been there for 4 years! Great service, nice atmosphere, and good food with a wide variety of options. We thought it a bit pricey but were still very pleased with our evening. We will go back again and have told others about it. It is off the beat and path and we were lucky to have found it."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "this is our second time at Parma 8200, both for special occasions. The first was with another couple and in the dining room. The most recent was on the patio. In both instances our server and hostess were excellent. The servers knew the menu items well and how they would be presented. The food was quite good and well presented. We enjoyed our experiences and will return."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "A very nice outside area but our table was wobbling, apparently broken earlier. The staff was aware of the problem, so why didn’t they do something about it sooner? (Not a comfortable place to eat.) Also someone must have spilled a glass of water as my feet had no where to go but in the rather large puddle."

  • "Loved the entire experience, from entering to exiting. Great food, outstanding service. Made us feel special."

  • "The lunch with a friend, enjoyed on the outdoor patio was delicious, well-timed and helpfully served. The server pointed out the daily lunch special, and also answered many questions about other menu items. My friend chose a lemony pasta that earned a "mmmm". I had a perfectly-prepared classic chicken parmesean that was a large portion (half got boxed and taken with me) Sliced bread appetizer - a small baguette - came before the meal and was refilled at our request to accompany our pastas. Water glasses were refilled promptly. The charming plant-filled patio is quite sunny, and we were fortunate to get the last shaded table. We did not feel rushed, had plenty of uninterupted conversation time, and still were done within an hour."

  • "Not the old country but a very nice Italian influence. Unbelievable Halibut piccata. Very nice appetizer choices. Very nice patio - well situated among all the office towers."

  • "Great lunch location for professionals. Service is fast, top notch and the food is always good. If you are into carbs, their warm bread and butter is wonderful! They used to have a $10 pick two type of lunch menu....but that option is no longer available. While they do still offer a daily lunch special, it consists of just one item. They do also have an outdoor patio, nice location for after work cocktails."

  • "I met a friend for lunch at Parma and as usual, both the food and service were terrific. The menu had changed since my last visit and our waitress was very helpful in explaining our options. The food was delicious! Because of the beautiful weather we were able to enjoy our meal in Parma's outside patio. I would recommend Parma to anyone looking for a fine (and reasonably priced) dining experience."

  • "Parma 8200 is the BEST restaurant to dine during restaurant week. We've been to most of the restaurants that participate and Parma has always stood out as the gold standard for food, wine and service. Not only do we always dine at Parma during restaurant week, but also we come at least once a month to enjoy the array of interesting foods Parma offers."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Was intrigued by the menu chosen by Parma for Restaurant Week, which is typically an opportunity for restaurants to showcase their top dishes. The beef and polenta were very salty. My friend ordered the chicken parm and said the same thing. Our server said she would send her supervisor out to speak to us, but no one stopped by to discuss. I did not eat the polenta. It may have been a bad day. I understand, but I will not return for dinner. Prices were high and there are so many great restaurants in the SW metro that do merit my time and wallet. Parking is inconvenient."

  • "the watermelon salad and the Brassato was excellent."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Had the pesto lunch special which included a salad. The salad was really good but the pasta was dry and bland. Fairly disappointing. The sandwiches my co-workers got looked pretty good so I would suggest getting those if you have to eat there."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Our group of 4 was disappointed with the food and service. Our waiter rushed us through our meal, bringing the salads at the same time as the main course without asking us what we preferred. We asked for bread twice before he brought it, also waited for refills on iced tea. The pasta and sandwiches we ordered were mediocre at best. I would not go back."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I have not had great food in the past so now just order cocktails in the lounge. Love the lounge on Sat. nights with Benny at the piano. I have had over cooked shrimp. Too salty sea bass, too salty chicken. One of my favorites was the meatball sandwich which has been removed from the menu. The desserts are wonderful. I also enjoy the watermelon salad."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Dined here On July 12, and it was a beautiful evening on the patio. The food was generally very good; however, I ordered a small portion of the linguine with clams. I was a bit surprised when they brought me my food as the pasta in the dish was extremely skimpy even for a smaller portion. I could actually see the bottom of the plate in a few places, and the dish was very small. Pasta itself is reasonably cheap and should not be skimped on. The service was a little bit slower due to a large party that was seated elsewhere in the restaurant, but otherwise the server was pleasant. The amount of pasta for the price makes me less enthusiastic to go back again in the near future."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Once again, Parma was outstanding! We had guests in town from California and we wanted to bring them to dinner. They were very impressed. The patio dining area ranks near the top of my list. its a beautiful patio, no street noise, just very comfortable. It's the type place you can get all dressed up for or go pretty casual. We have also rented the private dining room for a special occasion and that was also great!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Lunch in the side room next to the patio was so loud I had to nearly shout to be heard, as we were placed next to a large table of 12. However, the gluten free lemon flavored pasta with capers and spinach was delicious. I'd go back just for that!"

  • "We had a very nice round table for the five of us in a quiet part of the restaurant. We started with a great salad. The entree was so salty most of us could not eat it. Never knew pasta could be salty. They did cover our bill but don't think we will be returning."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Three friends gathered for lunch not having been here before. All said we'd return as food, drink, service and ambiance were wonderful! All of us frequent nicest restaurants in Twin Cities and this ranks with most of them, certainly near the top."

  • "Noisy! Good above average. Diligent staff but we kept looking for our waiter. Allows large parties. Makes it difficult and not enjoyable by others. Loved the jazz group !"

  • "Came to hear the jazz on Friday night. First visit to the restaurant. Lovely, comfortable bar area . Nice, intimate place for music. Ordered drinks and dinner. Very creative cocktail menu. Everything looked delicious, but I ended choosing wine with my dinner. Bar menu or dinner menu available. We chose a couple of a pasta entrees, which come in 2 sizes, and shared a salad. The large pasta entrees are very large. A smaller one with an app or salad is perfect . Food was beautifully prepared, tasted very fresh and delicious.service was friendly, attentive and relaxed. Very enjoyable evening. Loved the singer (Arne Fogel) and jazz combo. Will definitely go back for more music and to try other menu items"
