very good food. The canelloni, lasagna, fresh bread, and diner salads with house vinegrette were amazing and fresh. The coffee and tiramasu were also top notch.

The staff here is friendly and the atmosphere underground and eclectic. We were told by a staff member while grocery shopping "it's much better than Olive Garden". Having heard not so pleasant things about it in the past we decided to give it a try. I ordered spaghetti. The sauce was actually burned - like it had been reheated over... More

I can't say enough good things about Green Gables. Excellent food and service. I love the ambience of this place. Even though it looked small, they had no problem seating and serving our family of 7 comfortably. Will definitely be a return customer.

I had read that this place was kind of an old school Italian joint, which I tend to love. It was as I had hoped, like the Italian restaurants I had gone to as a kid. I love going to DeNicolas in Portland for the same reason. My wife ordered the petite portion of Manicotti ($11) and I ordered the... More

This restaurant is different, cute, funky, and the food is yummy. DH and I had a little Chianti, and with that, and the old-world atmosphere, we happily recounted our memories of traveling through Italy by train years ago. This is not your chain restaurant with cookie-cutter meals. Relax. Enjoy. You'll like it.

In a nutshell, it appears that the owner(s) are over-worked and under-staffed. They run the restaurant while trying to run the B&B. I'm not sure they do either one well. We didn't eat there, so you'll have to gamble on your own, but we noticed quite a bit of dust on the bookshelves in the dining area. We were greeted... More

We had the Bellagio Chianti, Baked Zitti with Meatballs and the Canneloni! These ladies can cook! They bring their NY Italian heritage to Oregon. Delicious!

Sally and I eat at this wonderful little restaurant at least once a month, we love it. We really like Wed all you can eat night. We both come from the East Coast (I am from NY) and this is REAL Italian like I remember. Thx you to the owners and staff for keeping the quality up all the time.... More

I talked my husband into eating at the Green Gables Italian Cafe in Newport, OR tonight. We stood in the entry for 2-3 minutes before a staff person came out of the kitchen delivering food to another party. The "first bites" were soggy and had just a few ingredients on it - not what was on the menu. The salad... More
