We had to wait outside for about 15 minutes because our table was not ready. There are several tables on the sidewalk which I don't think I'd like to be seated at. The restaurant is small but quite attractive and it appeared that our table...More

Awesome food and atmosphere. If you are coming here be sure to make a reservation and be creative when finding a place to park...you might have to walk a little but it's worth it!

We had pretty high hopes for this restaurant because of the reviews. The host that sat us was very friendly, but after that, it kind of went down hill. The girl who brought water and bread was extremely unfriendly and our server wasn't very attentive....More

I visited this place by hotel recommendation. Piazza makes its pasta fresh daily. It's a very small and cozy spot and offers outdoor seating as well, but it is a popular place, so reservations are recommended. They have a portion of the restaurant dedicated to...More

We frequently go here & have always enjoyed it so when my friend from out of town stopped to visit, I decided to take her here for a light lunch. Disappointed. The minestrone soup was bland & not one bean. The waiter was rather dismissive....More

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Portland, and I'm not just talking about the food, I'm also talking about the atmosphere and the vibe, which is fundamental. I am Italian and I come to Portland every year, and every time I eat...More

We come here so often that I like to think of it as my Italian grandpa's place in Rome. I almost always (no ALWAYS) get the Squatcherella pasta; it's a carbonara-like like concoction of ham, eggs, cheese and linguini that is so awesome that I...More

I called and asked. They do not have any gluten free pasta. If you do not have celiac disease, there is no concern about gluten in spite of the fact that people talk about it a great deal.
