Dined here twice. Both times I opted for more vegetarian fare. For dinner I had their squash and celery root tart. Oh my goodness... the following morning I had their garden herb galette. Amazing! Did I mention that I'm not a vegetarian but these dishes sounded so good I had to try them. Both were incredible!

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Vintage and had our dog with us so we could not eat in the restaurant so we ate in the hotel lobby. The bar staff was happy to take our order and bring the food over to us. We ate three meals here during our trip. We loved the pizza and they... More

Had dinner here twice while spending a week in downtown Portland. The dinner we had in the dining room was very good (ravioli and gnocchi dishes). The dinner we had in the bar...just OK (pizza and soup).

Wonderful food, excellent service...what more can you ask for? They are very attentive to your requests. The chef's special gnocchi is marvelous and spaghetti with clams is wonderful!

We stopped into Pazzo for dessert and coffee in the bar area. The opera caked was very rich and delicious and the bread pudding was excellent.

This restaurant was a disappointment. I order a Pepperoni pizza. It was soggy and visually unattractive. The clam chowder, which is a staple in Oregon, was thin and salty. The service was good.

The reviews were good, so we thought we'd give it a try. Honestly, I'm not a fussy diner or a critical reviewer looking for holes, but it was quite a disappointing meal. My pappardelle pasta was overcooked, The risotto was absent all seasoning - did they forget? And one our dishes, the steak, arrived a full two minutes after the... More

I had a great time just relaxing with my wife waiting for a movie and having an appetizer off their happy hour menu, and talking to Will, their bartender about his travel experiences. He was a great story teller about travel and a great conversationalist!
