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.

I have read reviews of this place and had certain expectations of quality of food, service etc... but my experience was not good. The menu they have is rather limited, so is the wine list. It is a small place that has a few tables at street level and a few more upstairs. We were a party of 4, ordered... More

I've eaten here five times in the past six months or so. My favorite higher end but simple Italian place. The Carbonara. The Caesar. The Puttanesca. The meatballs. Then last Friday. Every time I get seated upstairs I get the shaft. Ask me about Little Bird. Forgotten. Others seated much later get their drinks and entrees first. The minutes tick... More
