We love this "neighborhood gem."

This small Italian restaurant is a true gem in our neighborhood. Their cuisine is always tasty, the service impeccable and the ambiance friendly and welcoming. We eat here often.

This unpretentious small cafe is always a delight. This morning we tried it for a Saturday breakfast and were once again impressed by the quality of food and attentive service. We both had dropped eggs on corned beef hash that was absolutely delicious. The hash is made to order so when I didn't want green pepper in mine it was... More

Delicious hot soup on a brisk sunny Portland day. We must admit the aromas magically called us and drew us in. Hospitality and graciousness and service as plentiful as one could want. Creamy potato curry soup , tasty with a little bite to it, served with French style thin toasted bread. Delious and this is a must return. Highly recommend.

We went here for dinner before going to a concert. The place is very small but not crowded or cramped feeling. When we were there, the only two persons working we saw were the chef and our server. Sunday's include half off bottles of wine, a real bargain. We started with the petisco platter, an antipasto plate with cheese, meat,... More

We had dinner here one Saturday night while visiting a friend in Portland. She had said it was one of her favorite restaurants, so I had high expectations. I had a couple of glasses of white wine, which weren't memorable. Everyone started with a cup of onion soup, which I thought tasted too sweet. My entree was salmon over kale... More

We have been trying to get here for the longest time. Really happy we were able to make it in. Got a couple drinks, the sangria was really tasty. Ordered the french onion soup. It was superior. One of the best I have ever tried. Hubby ordered the ravioli, I got the gnocchi. Wow. Both fantastic. Sauces were excellent. We... More

We arrived in Portland at our hotel around 3:00pm - the time when all cafe's and restaurants are closed for their afternoon break. Luckily we stumbled upon Petisco in the nick of time before hunger turned us into grumpy monsters. Our waiter was perfect, the sandwiches were all $6 during happy hour (when we happened to be there), and the... More

Decided to stop in the SE end of Portland to get away from the weekend crowds. Saw this place on trip advisor and it is well worth the rating. Entrees are simple but well prepared and delicious. Had an eggs with hash and it was superb. Ambiance is nice. We sat outside and enjoyed a sunny, low humid day.

Came here to meet up with some friends before going out for the day. It was a very small cafe with indoor and outdoor seating. The menu was great with a lot of variety and they had varying menus for lunch and dinner which I really like. I had the best chicken salad salad that I have ever had in... More

Visiting Portland and without a car at first, I went on the hunt for lunch near the Doubletree Hotel. TripAdvisor led me to Petisco. It was in a neighborhood full of restaurants behind the Lloyd Center Mall. I would have missed it but for the sign. I had a very good and filling roast beef sandwich. It was so good... More
