We met friends for a Sunday dinner at this restaurant recently. Our server didn't know much about the type of pasta that was offered, the wine, or even some of the appetizers. She explained that she was new. More training would have been in order. We asked the goat cheese appetizer, and it was delicious. My pasta dish was just... More

Minneci's was a warm and inviting restaurant with a happy atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. The Bruschetta appetizer was really good - the bread was crispy, not soggy as can sometimes happen. We had a lovely bottle of chianti that was just the right temperature and not too warm. And my Pasta Arrabbiata was fantastic! I would highly recommend this restaurant... More

Long time customer of this establishment from the era of "joe" the original family. Took take out the other night to find long black hairs in spaghettini. My food was replaced after driving back for 30 minutes. I didn't get a refund but instead a hardened apology. Very disappointed!!!

My wife and I always know that when we go to Minneci's the food will be awesome. In addition, on Wednesday evening it is half price house wine night and on Thursday you are entertained with live music while you enjoy your meal. This is one of our favorite places to eat in Champaign-Urbana.

We used to get takeout from here frequently. The food is still good but prices have really gone up! We paid $10 each for a small side salad that used to be complimentary with the meal.

Sundays are all about the brunch at Minneci's. Great food; lovely selection including smoked salmon, half-sandwiches, soups, cheeses, eggs and pastas .. and did I mention salads? Great choice for brunch!

15 minutes just for bread, and an additional 10 minutes after we asked to get our water refilled. Food was good, fair pricing, but we expected much more based on reviews... not a dirty bathroom and long waits.

To start I thought the server was excellent. can't remember his name but he said he was Irish. Give him a raise. We had a large party and he was right on it all the time. We had a toddler and he brought his food early, smart move. Everyone seemed to enjoy the food. I had fish which was a... More

This place was recommended by the front desk manager at our hotel. It was a drive from the hotel across town, but easy to find, and parking was easy. The restaurant is in a newish shopping area. A rather quiet night with maybe 10% of the tables occupied when we arrived at 7:45 pm. An older man was providing live... More
