Dear Bonicelli friends and patrons,

As you all know, I love everything about food.  After almost 3 years, we have made a business decision to close Bonicelli Kitchen.  You all helped make this amazing journey possible - thank you.  We loved cooking for you, enjoyed great reviews and many wonderful experiences - but the business is not accomplishing what we set out to do financially or creatively.  So after much thought and consideration, we have decided to set our sights on new goals and are closing Bonicelli Kitchen.  We want to stay in touch and will keep our social media channels active to let you know what is next.  


Again, thank you!

Chef Laura Bonicelli and Mark LaFavor





About Bonicelli Kitchen

Bonicelli Kitchen is one of the many Minneapolis restaurants and began nine years ago as Bonicelli Fresh Meal Delivery, an idea Chef Laura Bonicelli had on a long flight home from Europe. Her concept was simply to find the best local ingredients and use her original recipes to bring meals into the home that would rival any dish found in a fine dining restaurant. Now, at Bonicelli Kitchen we can bring those same dishes right to your table. Our small plates, our northeast Minneapolis bar consisting of curated beer and a large wine list and the restaurant’s warm atmosphere make every meal an experience to remember.

We're more than just a Italian restaurant in Minneapolis.  To put it simply, at Bonicelli Kitchen, we live to eat! We hope you’ll join us for a meal so we can share our passion for cooking, family and above all, our love of great food.

Please make all your reservations through Yelp.

"Our New Years Eve for Smart People wine dinner at Bonicelli Kitchen was out of this world. We gathered at 4pm for toasts with Cava and Cremant, moved into appetizers and more bubbly, then one of the greatest dishes I've had in the Twin Cities in the last ten years: king crab gougeres with beurre blanc, paired with a Vire-Clesse White Burgundy and a Russian River Valley Chardonnay. From there we moved into a Champagne intermezzo, followed by coffee crusted roasted beef tenderloin served with a variety of sides and two special wines: a favorite Rioja and a Napa Valley Zinfandel. Both wines were absolutely perfect with the beef course. Dessert was a crepe suzette paired with an Argentine Malbec port! What a night. The best part? We were done at 8pm! A smart person dinner indeed."
