Even though I generally have trouble picking favorite restaurants, Amore Victoria in the heart of Uptown at Irving and Lake is definitely a favorite. My love for this restaurant can be illustrated by the fact that I have gone here over 5 times since I moved here (a statement that could probably only be repeated for Mesa Pizza). Amore is a little on the nicer end, so I really only go when my family is around or for a special occasion. During their most recent, I went with my family the first night they arrived.
As soon as you’re seated, you can expect to be greeted with a nice basket of fresh bread, olive oil, and shredded cheese:
Not all of Amore’s pastas are homemade, but the fettucine is and it is SUPERB. Usually I ask to sub the pasta in whatever dish I’m getting with the fettucine. This time, I ordered chicken breast stuffed with spinach, pesto, mushrooms, and sundried tomatoes with fettucine. It was delicious and enormous. An entire half of the dish was leftover for lunch the next day:
My dad ordered the homemade gnocchi with pesto, chicken breast, and broccoli. My brother ordered gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce and pistachios. Everything was excellent, as to be expected.
Now, to conclude my own personal restaurant week, I would like to introduce my brand new Minneapolis page! Check it out for links to all of the restaurants and activities where I’ve been out and about around the Twin Cities.
