Great food! Although, no a huge fan of the cauliflower. Or service was fantastic and the ambiance was energetic and fun! Definitely recommend!

This is a little illogical, but we save this restaurant for special nights out because we want to make sure we never tire of it. We tend to order the same core group of dishes and a few new ones each time. Our picks: Italian Jerk Chicken, Gnocchi, Salmon, Mussels, and Meatballs. You won't be disappointed with i.e.

Always a great experience. Amazing food, cozy atmosphere. I wish we could have gotten reservations a little later into the evening, but we had a great time and will return many times over.

It was our first visit to Italian Eatery. We had heard good things about it and were looking for a replacement for Al Vento which was one of our favorites. I can say that Italian Eatery did not disappoint. We had the mussels, the cauliflower, the bucatini & the short ribs and all were fantastic. This is now our Italian of choice.

A perfect birthday brunch! My four friends and I went to ie for brunch and it was exactly what we wanted. The ambiance was lively but not too overwhelming, the beverages and food were delightful and the service was superb. I had the eggs benedict which had a basil hollandaise and could eat that every day! I highly recommend it.

The restaurant ambiance and energy was great. I had the pappardelle which was wonderful. Two of our attendees had the Bucatini and both of them found that it was rather dry and didn't have a lot of flavor. We shared the 720 Day Dried Prosciutto & Imported Burrata. It comes with a few pieces of grilled bread but they could put a little more bread on the bread board as we needed to ask for additional bread. They kindly obliged.

One thing I found strange was that they didn't bring us any bread until after we were done with our appetizers. We had made a reservation for 8:30 p.m. and checked in but weren't seated until about 8:50 p.m. which seemed odd at that time of night.

Our waitress was really nice and very accommodating. I think she had too many tables though as we didn't feel like we were consistently checked on.

IE is a must if you’re in the S Minneapolis area and enjoy Italian. Absolutely superb all around. Recommend you make a reservation or if you’re lucky you might find a spot at the bar (full service).

I always enjoy Italian Eatery - this was a first date with someone who had never been there and it was fantastic! Great food, great service, great ambience - while it is more fun in the summer when the doors are open, it's great this time of year too!

Came to IE for brunch with out of town guests. Our waiter, Todd, was both extremely friendly and professional. Our aperitifs were delicious; the bar staff is amazing here! Each of of main course dishes were thoroughly enjoyed! I particularly liked my Polenta Pancakes topped with fresh berries.

The specialty coffee drinks and breakfast rosemary biscuits were phenomenal. Disappointed in the Benedict. Too many subtle flavors that cancelled each other out. The hash needed more salt.
Staff was amazing and attentive! Ambiance was beautiful. 10/10 for pictures.

The food was amazing! We spent two hours there and were not pressured at all to rush. If anything we could have used a bit more attention. Plenty of time between courses and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Parking lot fills up quickly!!!

The food and service was fantastic. The best Italian food we have had in the Cities. We were a party of 4 and started with the prosciutto. It was very good and plenty for 4. Then we shared the apple salad, again, enough for 4 and great flavor. We each had an entree, I recommend the boar meatballs. Fantastic. We also shared 3 desserts; the chocolate cake, tiramisu and gelato. The price was reasonable. Also, the wine was wonderful. We will be back. Thanks for a wonderful evening.

What a wonderful evening. Service from Eric was top notch and the meal was amazing. Started with mussels in limoncello butter sauce followed by ricotta cavatelli and mushroom cappattelli. Both meals were delicious. Concluded the evening with tiramisu and cappuccino. Yum!!!
