My favourite meal in Portland - and that’s saying something. Grassa is simply delicious and I would go back in a heartbeat. Making a decision on what dish to choose was so difficult as everything sounded (and smelt!) amazing. Since there are only about 8...More

Visited Portland with my wife and the pasta here is delicious. If you like a kick of sweet in your food I highly recommend the Pork Belly MAC n Cheese. Also, the Carbonara is delicious.

What a hip place. Community style high tops and the open kitchen encourage interaction between customers. The portions are perfect and the food is ever so fresh. She had the Carbonara, I had the Pomodora. We split the Grassa meatballs. So tasty. My only complaint...More
