We have been here many times. Amazing food. The owner/manager is always very awkwardly controlling of his staff. I'm aware of this now and just accept is as a quirk while eating here. I would also add that it isn't a place that's too friendly for children and I always feel like I did something wrong when we bring our... More

First, the wine selection: Don't stop with the standard wine list. There's a much bigger one with a huge range of varieties and wineries all over the world. Second,the service is very friendly (this is a family restaurant, after all) and accommodating to even the quirkiest customers. Third, the food is excellent. As a bonus, this small restaurant has a... More

We visited this little restaurant on the suggestion of a client and WOW! The food and the service were simply amazing. The restaurant is charming. The minute you walk in they treat you like you're one of the family. Our meals... full of flavor, large portions and beautiful to look at too!

Returned once again to this great trattoria in our Sellwood neighborhood. Seth was orchestrating everything like a fine opera. Place was full of people from the neighborhood who appreciate the fabulous from scratch Italian cooking and the extensive wine cellar. My wife's chicken and chanterelle ravioli was a work of art. I had a superb pappardelle with short rib meat.... More

The staff is wonderful and very accomadating. The meal was very good. The menu looked delightful. I would order a different dish next time as gnocchi is not my favorite type of pasta. Everyone at the table enjoyed the meal and had a great time

Two couples. We started the family salad,(Fresh, crisp, varied and perfectly dressed) bruschetta with figs and goat cheese (piquant and sweet, crisp and succulent,a treat for the eye and the tongue) then went our separate ways for entrees. After the appetizers, I knew I needed something light, so I had the sole in cornmeal crust. Perfect sauce. I wanted to... More

Very courteous employees. Not your basic spaghetti and meatball dishes. Very different and unusual. Everything on the menu sounds good; it's difficult to choose what to eat. Everyone was willing to discuss the different items on the menu to help us decide what to eat. The deserts are out of this world -- very good.

My boyfriend took me here for dinner for my birthday, and WOW! It was a complete treat!! The staff is extremely friendly, the food was delectable, and the atmosphere was quite pleasant and intimate.
