Regardless of the time of year, Italian Eatery in Northrop is one of our favorite restaurants to eat at in Minneapolis. During the winter, it’s a great spot to eat pasta and drink wine at while hiding out from the cold. When summer comes around, their large patio is the perfect place to have an Aperol spritz to remind yourself that warm weather exists. The pasta-heavy menu includes favorites like squid ink rigatoni and sriracha zucca, all of which are made in-house. To balance out the pasta intake, we recommend the wild boar meatballs and Calabrian cauliflower.
