Food was great, and our waiter was very nice. Not too pricy, definitely value for money. In the weekends I would recommend to make a reservation, we had to kill an hour or so while we waited for a table to open (and it was totally worth it).

Authentic Italian down to the Italian speaking waiters that like to watch the Soccer game as much as serve tables. Mostly freshly made pasta with various sauces offer a good variety and can be substituted, within reason, at a $2 up-charge. We sampled a tasty, simple green salad and a fantastic Tiramisu, all sold Ala-cart. The light, fluffy Gnocchi special... More

Great restaurant. Must thank Knit Purl for this recommendation. Reservations are a must. Small neighborhood bistro in the Pearl District. Excellent pasta, we had the clam sauce and the sausage. Yum.

What a find and so pleased that my girlfriends picked this restaurant for b-day celebrations. The food and ambiance is authentic. From our antipasto dish to our main courses, all were delicious. Our table had the risotto, lasagna and lamb shank. Wine assortment is well versed to satisfy all needs and requests. Our lemon dessert was a perfect accompaniment to... More

I was very happy to have chosen this restaurant! When we first walked in there was a gentleman playing an accordion and greeting people - that really set the tone for dinner. We were put on a wait list, but we didn't wait long at all. It was a chilly night and there was no room to wait inside, so... More

The pasta is fantastic at this small restaurant with a real neighborhood feel. Reservations are recommended. Both the menu and the wine list are reasonably priced. If I lived in Portland I would be a regular.

We had dinner over the weekend at one of our hometown favorites. It's a small place, but worth booking a reservation for because they're always fairly busy. Their lasagne is the best, but they have a great menu of Italian dishes, and there are always great specials, too. The service is always perfect, never rushed even when they're busy. Prices... More

SMALL restaurant with homey Italian feel. Felt a bit like having dinner at an Italian friends momma's house. Happy we got reservations in advance as those arriving after us without them were told wait would be over an hour. Had musician playing guitar and singing which was nice but a bit loud at times making conversation challenging. Clams and pasta... More

On a recent trip to Portland we wanted to go out for a celebration dinner with family. My daughter in law worked right around the corner and spoke highly of this place. We weren't disappointed. Coming from Boston and having many places like it in the North End this compared favorably. The food was authentic and delicious. Everyone loved their... More
