Come for Happy Hour

Tucked in NW Portland where there is parking, Caffe Allora is a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine and a happy hour dinner. We ordered olives, bread, bruschetta, pasta, clams & mussels, and salad. All were tasty and quite filing.

I have walked be this sweet spot so many times we finally popped in for dinner. It wasn't too busy so we were seated immediately. The wine was really good. On the high end expense wise, but delicious. They charge for bread. Is this normal? I had never paid for bread before. It was ok. The minestrone soup was not... More

5 of my girlfriends dined for my birthday. The gnocchi are the best I have ever had. And the butternut squash raviolis with the browned butter were divine. We love to dine family style so that we get to try many things. There just wasn't anything that we didn't all love. We tried 2 of the specials, yum! Our waitress... More

Great little Italian restaurant tucked away on the edge of the Pearl district. Close to the post office so lots of truck traffic, but not overwhelming. My brother recommended this place as a place to meet him, and I'm glad we agreed. For appetizers we shared buschetta (tomato, basil & garlic), bread and olive oil, and a plate of olives.... More

Stopped here for lunch. Our group included 2 adults and a 6 year old. Food was all artfully prepared, and quality was excellent. Pasta was cooked to a perfect al-dente, sauces were balanced and the fish (on my pasta dish) was well prepared and cooked. All 3 of us enjoyed our food.

Not a lot of tables, very intimate and quiet space for a nice Italian meal and conversation. Food was fantastic, good wine list. It was crowded when we dropped by on a rainy evening by chance and we got the last table in the corner. Probably would have been good to have a reservation. They are open "until close". We... More

Very enjoyable casual but elegant Italian restaurant in the Pearl District of Portland, Oregon. Delicious food--small intimate dining. Lunch was very good. Sidewalk seating also is very nice on this quiet street in downtown Portland.
