From Amore Uptown

Welcome to Amore Uptown, where traditional Italian cooking techniques are paired with fresh, locally sourced ingredients, plus world wines and artful cocktails. A restaurant hand-crafted by the owners themselves, husband-and-wife-team Jenna and Alex Victoria have created an Old-World, timeless space with exposed brick, mahogany woodwork, chandeliers and velvet burgundy booths. Serving scratch Italian classics which run the gamut from house made gnocchi con gorgonzola and frutti di mare, to more contemporary fusions, like the wildly popular Mushroom Passion, you are bound to find something on the menu to suit your taste. Our signature Lasagna and Tiramisu have been labeled “excellent” and “near perfect” by critics from both Mpls.St.Paul Magazine and the Star Tribune.
