We were reacquainted with this restaurant through an Entertainment coupon. Their service was excellent. Several servers made sure our drinks were filled and that we had what we needed. I began with a salad, that had excellent house-made blue cheese dressing. They brought us bread and a small appetizer dish. Our meals were great. They acted as if they were... More

We were treated poorly and lied to about space available. We were stuck staying because no where else had the space available to accommodate our size of group. The service was slow and I was extremely embarrassed for being in charge of picking this place. Everyone was very disappointed. I also hated the pizza crust. It had zero flavor and... More

We have two places we go to when we need a quick meal and this is one of them. I favor the cheese tortellini and my husband loves the (spaghetti with) meatballs. I order from the senior menu so that I can enjoy the antipasto and still be able to finish my entree. It's a family run restaurant so you... More

I'm going to be more than generous in giving this 3 stars. I came here 2 weeks ago for dinner with my husband and kids. I had previously visited one other time and was not impressed with the pizza though my husband had loved it (then). We got to the restaurant around 6:30pm on a Friday and were seated right... More

We have been coming here for years and have yet to find anything that was not amazing tasting. Reasonably priced for the portions. Friendly servers, great family owned business and you feel that when you walk in and are greeted.

We have been coming here for the amazing pizza for over 25 years. Now that we live in Arizona, we still have to get to DeNicola's every time we get back to Portland. The pizza is delicious, as big as ever, and the staff are always welcoming, cheerful and friendly.

I ate at DeNicola's this evening & had the Linguine by the Sea. It was delicious! 7 large prawns over linguine seasoned with fresh garlic, romano cheese & lemon pepper. It was amazing! Give them a try!

All you can eat spaghetti always brings us back but this evening was the worst service we've ever had. When we complained to the owner all she did was argue with us. She blamed it on the cooks and said its not the waitresses fault. Maybe this was her neice or something? Very disappointing, guess we won't be back.
