After looking at the menu online I decided to give Grassa a try, I'm not impressed. I had the 450 ml pinot noir, meyh, much better pinot's available, the caesar salad, too big, had squash and beets in it and the texture was more than a little grainy. Had carbonara with garlic bread ($3 for the garlic bread, not worth... More

Went here with the husband and loved it. Got roasted brussel sprouts, creamed kale and white beans, Cacio e Pepe and Strozzapreti alla Zucca:) Amazing!!! Loved every bite. If we lived down the street, I would eat here all the time. Yum! I've just been dreaming about Grassa since...

This is the place for fresh made pasta. You can watch them make it. This restaurant can get very busy, you order before you sit down. Once seated your meal comes quick. Portions are big enough to share or take the leftovers for the next days lunch. All the pasta we tried was very good.

I read about this place on TripAdvisor and they had me at pork belly mac and cheese. I decided to also try the cacio e Pepe. Both dishes were very good. Initially my favorite was the mac and cheese but the pork belly flavor became a little overwhelming and a little to salty to have more than a few bites.... More

Recommended by an uber driver from San Francisco we visited Grassa for dinner. You need to order and pay at the entrance, after this the food will be brought to you table. The homemade pasta was really good and they have awesome dishes with unexpected ingredients. But also the simple tomato sauce we had with our meatballs starter was perfect.... More

I got a bowl of spaghetti aglio and olio. You order from a cash register at the door and they bring your meal to your table. There is mainly communal seating with a couple of booths, but I do not like communal seating. The food was fast and good.

This place was recommended to us by a local tour guide, so we decided to try it. We were very disappointed. First off, you order at a counter like you would at a fast food restaurant. The prices aren't too bad, but the portions are also not too large. You then have to fight to find a seat on a... More

Okay, I came here for a late lunch. It was recommended to me by a friend. U order at the door from the foyer menu. The young man who took my order proudly exclaimed they don't need to do happy hour n leave that to other restaurants. I ordered the squid ink tortellini w clams n pancetta. The wine selections...

My sister and I visited this restaurant in October when she needed to carb up for a half marathon. The pasta was super fresh and delicious. Plan ahead as you have to wait in line to order. We loved it so much we came back the next day for appetizers.

Very pleased to find this place so close to our hotel. Sunday night rigatoni with pork ragu and the stozzapreti con zucca were both fresh, tasty, perfectly-seasoned and plentiful. Good value at $11 each. House red not bad either. Tempted to eat here every night for the rest of our stay in Portland.
