Italian
Our menu features Rustic Italian Recipes, Thin Crust Pizzas & Fresh Pastas. Stoneground Italian is located downtown in a second-story loft overlooking the architecturally acclaimed Salt Lake City Public Library. Since opening in 2000, owner Bob McCarthy has been cooking up a dining experience that’s warm, welcoming and firmly planted in his Irish-Italian roots. He takes a simple approach to serving delicious food: always fresh and house-made.
The environment at Stoneground is cool and casual; some describe it as a rustic/urban vibe. You’ll feel comfortable dressed as you are. The window tables have mesmerizing views and are ideal for intimate dining occasions. The outdoor deck seats about 40-people and is the go-to spot for your fair weather celebrations. Park and enter from the rear of the building. Parking is Free. Hope to see you soon!

    Great food. All the pasta is made in house. Would recommend if you like Italian with a modern twist.

    We had a large party come here for Friendsgiving and it was fantastic! The cocktails were delicious and fresh. Most of our group had a variety of their made in-house pastas and loved every one of them. You seriously can't go wrong coming here. Amazing!

    Ambience was outstanding and it felt really good and fun just being here. The food was almost amazing, but the only things that really lowers the overall experiences was the portions. Unless you get a pizza, all the other dishes' portions were so small for how much they cost. Again, food was amazing, but I left still feeling hungry.

    Polenta tots, lasagne, and black tagliatelle were all excellent as usual. Wine selection, and quality are top-notch. Service was fantastic. Our server Kevin, and supporting staff took excellent care of us. This is our favorite choice for Italian fare.

    Took a long time for server to come over and a long time between dropping off menus and taking order. Had to order from a bus boy and then again from server for an appetizer. He seemed frustrated by us. Food was between good and forgettable. Mushroom pizza was missing something, maybe some lemon or other note. Greek pizza was good, gma was fine but also that's a lot of garlic. If service was better maybe we'd come back but for a non busy Tuesday at that price, I'll probably try somewhere else first.

    Took my wife here for our anniversary and it was exactly the atmosphere I was shooting for. The food was very good as well but I just loved the restaurant itself more than anything, I don't think there is a bad table in the entire dining area, we had a great view from the window. Pizza was great, lasagna and pappardelle were also great, would order again. Our server was very accommodating and helpful as well. We will definitely go back.

    Really fresh and delicious Burrata and tomato salad and tasty Arancini. Nice choice of main courses, pasta bolognaise was excellent and sausage lasagna was good. Wine list wasn't amazing as I don't really like Italian wines and I don't really like the specialty dishes as I would rather eat off of a flat plate rather than a bowl that I can't rest my knife and fork on. Our server was excellent and the overall restaurant atmosphere was good.

We cannot forget Joel who is the bar manager who whips up some fantastic cocktails to enjoy! We are moving away, but will be back for dinner each time we visit! Love this cozy restaurant in the heart of downtown!

    We had a great meal at Stoneground. Though a little hard to find (up some stairs on the second floor) the interior was stylish and the service was excellent. We had both pizza and pasta and a caprese salad and all were excellent. Definitely will be back here again in the future.

    Homemade food fail. Food was heavy/gloppy. Large charcuterie board with limp grapes, tasteless cheese, tasteless salami cuts. Bad Bolognese and bad Margarita Pizza, bad lasagna. Equals bad Italian. Bring Pepcid. Very loud. Packed with loud 20-30 year olds. Nothing special totally skipable.

    Food was excellent!! Service was slow on clearing the table when courses were completed. Entrees were brought out minus one guests who had to wait. Glass of wine to accompany dinner was late to the table. Hostess walking around to each table every few minutes seemed kinda creepy and her goal was to let staff know when one was done with a course, but then nothing was really done about it….. as dirty dishes sat on the table??
