We love consistently coming to Amore Uptown; amazing Italian food, great decor and atmosphere, and a mean smoky cinnamon old fashioned. A great date night !

Was my first time at Amore. Food was so tasty, service was great. I was actually here to celebrate my 30th birthday with a few close friends. Everyone’s meals where exceptional. Our waiter took the time to go over the menu and make food and drink recommendations. He even surprised us at the end with a birthday desert. Great ambiance, low lighting, I’m craving my meal I had just writing this review. I’ll definitely be back.

I love coming here for weekend brunch and bottomless mimosas. The servers are always so kind and the food is so tasty for the price, I’m hooked! Brunch items are pretty much $10-$14 all across the board, the bottomless mimosas are $10 with any brunch item. So many tasty fresh options from classics like eggs, toast, bacon, and potatoes, to frittata style eggs with marinara. The breakfast burrito and the lemon ricotta pancakes are also my favorites!

Very nice first time experience. Good food, ambience, and Italian classic playlist. Wine selection needs some work.

Just a very nice quaint corner joint with quality food, decent variety. Wine was a little spendy but ...wish it would have been warm enough to done on the rooftop. Would go back again.

Food was very average for the price. Dry and bland lasagna. Old fashion was almost not drinkable.

Amore Uptown has been one of our go-to pasta places, but our last visit wasn’t as good as usual. The shrimp chowder was delicious, but all of our pastas were over sauced. It was like eating noodles in soup. We had guests in town from Texas and has been raving to them about the wild mushroom pasta, so that probably added to our disappointment. Oh well.

This was honestly one of the best overall food experiences we've had in a long time. The food was spot-on from apps to dessert. The ambiance was great - on the roof on a beautiful night with no mosquitoes! Our server rounded things out and we were never "in want" of help - but we weren't bothered either. We've already suggested Amore to multiple people and we will be back soon. GREAT TIME!!

Our food was very good and our server was friendly and efficient. We ate on the rooftop which was fun. It was noisy but with such beautiful weather we weren’t disappointed. Nice cocktails. This is in a neat Minneapolis neighborhood.

Had reservations and were seated in front of the bathrooms and kitchen. When asked to be moved the host said all other tables were reserved. We ate, and were there for 1 hour and nobody was seated at the other tables. Not very accommodating. Will not go back

We were told Amore Uptown has a new chef since our last visit and some changes on the menu. The food has always been good to great but this time my wife called it amazing... I agree.

Service was and always has been great.

A co-worker recommended Amore Uptown to us. We were excited and made a reservation online.
We arrived early, parking was easy. We actually couldn't find the entrance, a little hidden. I requested a booth. The host ignored us for 10 minutes at least. After he was done playing on his iPad, he gave us the tiniest table right next to the loudest party. Entire restaurant was empty. We asked for another table but host said they are fully booked with reservations. Don't know if he even realized that I had also made a reservation.
Anyways, we tried the spot but we couldn't have a conversation because it was way too loud. We asked then again for a different table which caused confusion to every waiter and host and our appetizer came out already.
Finally, we managed to find a better spot. We thought the food was good. Back then, we didn't know that my husband got sick from their seafood.
When we asked for the check, we got a little shocked. Food is way overpriced for that poor service they provided.
On top of all that, they kept bringing food out in the next room for a buffet and left everything uncovered and uncooled. I'm not a health inspector but I can't imagine that it's good to leave food out for at least 2 hours in summers.
We would not recommend this place, stay away.

Giacomo was a great waiter. I was with my wife and a friend and we ate on the roof. We were fasting and had arrived before it was time for us to eat. Giacomo made all the necessary arrangements to have our food order delayed so it would be fresh and ready by the time we could eat. He even brought us a small drink and some dates! This is my 3-4 time at the restaurant and the food has always been exceptional (I tend to reorder the same dish and sample other’s from friends). The roof was a lot less noisy than the inside of the restaurant tends to be. Would be happy to return. I do wish they did not serve alcohol or pork products.

This was my second visit here. Brought friends for their anniversary. I added a note and the restaurant provided a dessert treat that was very enjoyable. They have terrific service and food. Love this place. Can’t wait to bring more friends to find this hidden gem.

1st time here, but we will be back! We had a veal dish that was so good! The warm bread with oil was so good, we may have had a number of baskets. Our server was outstanding. The wine pairing with my pasta was perfect! Loved the dessert treat for my birthday too!
