Best italian food in PDX, love the fresh pasta. Love it here, incredibly nice and attentive staff. My only complaint is it is pretty expensive for what it is, I often only come with a groupon.

We tried Iorio through a Groupon. It was walking distance to where we live which made it really easy to get there. Upon arrival, I was a little worried there were not many people inside;however, that quickly changed by the time we left. I normally order wine with dinner but was instantly persuaded by their Limoncello cocktail...not many places serve... More

I can't believe this was our first time at Iorio-- it's close to home and so exceptional. Italian for sure. You can approach it with just smaller plates or go with large full meals. The salads are fresh with excellent mixes of ingredients. Small plates like meat balls (with a slight kick to them) or polenta were excellent. Cheese board... More

Good Food, altho the steel head was a little dry. My husband had the rib eye and it was melt in your mouth yummy! They had a live guitarist playing soft music - nice touch. On a side street, so you have to search it out.

I took a chance on this restaurant, having not heard from anyone who had experienced it. Their web site, menu and the few comments I could find on it looked good so I arranged to surprise my husband and we meet friends there. We had a perfect evening! The table was nicely arranged and comfortable in a romantic setting. All... More

We have dined here often and always enjoyed the fresh pasta that is made daily. we were here recently and had the fresine w/meat balls & their daily ravioli ... although making fresh pasta is not that difficult, you can certainly ruin it by adding a ridiculous amount of salt to it .. no clue why the chef did that...

This review is about our second visit to Iorio Restaurant. After our first visit, we rated the food as fantastic, the ambiance lovely, the noise level quite reasonable, the service outstanding (we had Charles as our server) and considered the restaurant a neighborhood gem. Last Friday, 1.29, we returned to the restaurant with great anticipation, only to meet with disappointment.... More

Iorio Restaurant in SE Portland has been around for years but hasn't gotten the attention or press as lots of other Portland Italian restaurants. It's our secret, so don't tell too many people. Reservations are not difficult to get, parking is easy and the food is REALLY good and reasonably priced. Pastas are homemade and everything is fresh. A nice... More

What a charming restaurant! Casual and decorated darling, just like being in a restaurant in Italy. They had a flamingo guitarist playing while we ate, so neat. Iorio is the name of the owners grandmother and there is a section where the guitarist plays that has pictures of her. So special. Now the food! Eight of went and had different... More
