The Roman meatballs were excellent as always! My husband had the smaller portion of the Mushroom Cappelletti for main course - it was excellent. I had the Ricotta Cavatelli. The pasta (made w/ ricotta) was very well done. But for a Bolognese sauce, I was disappointed w/ the very small amount of meat that I found. The sauce itself was flavorful but it needed salt, for my taste. We really like that they offer smaller portions. :-) We shared the mascarpone cheesecake for dessert - excellent. The service was attentive, timely and friendly. Our waitress was very well versed on the menu items. The overhead music was a bit loud in the beginning, but then the volume was turned down a bit. We will certainly return. More

Sushi | South Minneapolis, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

I really like this space. It’s intimate without being stuffy. The few times I’ve been there it’s always been busy, so that in turn means a little longer wait time for your food. But it’s worth the wait. It’s always been delicious. They have always been out of smoked salmon when I’m there, but I’m not too picky. So that’s not a deal breaker either. Overall, I’ll always go back. It’s close to home and haven’t had a horrible experience yet. :) More

Farm-to-table | South Minneapolis, Twin Cities / Minneapolis

We went for Dine Out for Life and everything was on point. Service, food, experience, even the setup the helped put in place for the gentleman asking for donations for the Aliveness Project was well thought out and executed upon. I am so thankful to have a place, no, establishment like Wise Acre in MPLS leading through not only sustainability but also community advocacy! There is a difference between an ally and an advocate, and Wise Acre has never been a place that I have witnessed to sit back and play the neutral party. That’s real leadership and it is admired!! Thank you to Wise Acre, from Farmer to Busser, for making me feel welcomed, appreciated, and accepted. More
