    The food and drinks were outstanding, they do an excellent boulevardier and their grasp of flavor profile and balance in all the dishes was honestly to die for. I’d go back in a heartbeat.

    Our waiter, Antoni, was fantastic! We tried the Roman meatballs, chop salad, whipped ricotta with grilled bread, mushroom capelletti (literally the best pasta we’ve ever had), baked garganelli, spaghetti, and the cavatelli. All dishes were delicious and we are absolutely coming back. Thanks, Italian Eatery!

    The pasta was toothy as it should be. Sauce was bland for each of our dishes. The chef was off. The tables were too tight. The other guests chairs were hitting others. We had to sit awards at our table because we could sit straight on. The noise was extremely loud… too many people for the space. The wait staff was kicking our feet, brushing up against us and reaching over repeatedly. Not the best experience tonight….

    We ate at the bar and most everything was very good. Drinks, food, limonchello. Service was a little spotty as the two bartenders seemed to be very busy making drinks for all the patrons. Not bad but not as attentive as usual. Won't stop us from going back there again!

    Monica was our server, and she was great! She had good timing with checking our table to make sure we have everything we need. The lamb appetizer and spaghettiini nero are really great dishes. The artichoke risotto was a little overdone. All-in-all, we had a great meal.

    Great Italian food and cocktails. I grew up with Italian cooking and normally find even nice American-Italian restaurants food lacking. Italian Eatery is the one exception.

    Live in the neighborhood so I've been here many many times but ate in the 'regular' section instead of at the bar for the first time in a while. It was great to see things are just as awesome as the first time so many years ago. It just gets better!

    this is like my 4th or 5th visit and keep getting more and more hooked on this place (i do live right across the street so it's too easy to come enjoy) ... went on a wednesday evening made a reservation for 7:45 .. had a little wait for a table but it gave time to get a drink at the bar ... ended up with a table next to the bar which was fun .. people watching is excellent here .. the food is even better .. our server/bartender took the time to go over the entire menu with recommendations for food and drinks (she was awesome) ... the entire meal was excellent ... my dinner companion had never been and absolutely wants to come back for another awesome meal .. kudos to the front and back of the house (especially the kitchen) ... i am still new to the Nokomis area but with a neighbor like Italian Eatery ... i will be hard pressed to move .. maybe next time there will be room for dessert... thank you for an excellent evening IE ... keep it up

    The atmosphere was very hip. Got there before the dinner rush so the noise level was tame. I had the Mushroom Cappelletti which was excellent but a little light on portion size. As I would consider IE an upscale restaurant I was surprised they did not serve bread/rolls with a pasta meal. Overall though thought it was a very comfortable place.

    Had a confirmed reservation on Wednesday night at 7pm. Showed up with a date a couple minutes before 7, and while it was busy, the hostess took a very long time to acknowledge us. It was one of the more uncomfortable hostess experiences I've been involved with. A simple, "just one moment" would have made a world of difference. Everything else was fine to good, but this set the wrong tone for the night.

    Another lovely dinner experience here. Our wait staff were perfectly friendly and attentive- impressive wine list here. We shared the root salad, which was easily shared for two. We each ordered the mushroom capaletti and it was wonderful- Creamy and very tasty mushrooms in cream, served among fresh home made pasta. diosclosure: i always order this dish and it never disappoints! Can get busy during dinner hours, so recommend reservations Great spot for dinner!
