When my wife is feeling like she needs a little special dinner treat, we think of Iorio. Often reservations are appreciated, early dining times can be the easiest for spontaneous moods. The chef creates savory entree's that vary with the season. Appetizers of Calamari are always among our selections. If you park in front, please watch out for the many... More

we walked from the Nines and were hungry when we arrived--thankfully…each course was wonderful, wine was priced almost at cost---salads were fresh and the desert was great…it was fresh, authentic italian, with a great atmosphere. I would go back to Portland to have another course.

Recently, we enjoyed a delicious dinner with friends at Portland's Iorio Restaurant. It is a delightful place to sit and enjoy a wonderful meal. The wait staff were there to take care of every question we had. We enjoyed sitting at a delightful table by a front window. The menu had so many choices to select from, and all four... More

So we were having one of those nights where we couldn't decide on a place to eat. We decided to just troll around inner SE and land somewhere. The place ended up being Iorio. From the outside it looked promising. A quick search online yielded positive reviews. Prices listed on the window looked reasonable, so in we went. The hostess... More

This Italian restaurant was absolutely amazing. The gnocchi was like "pillows of heaven", the pasta dishes were unbelievable... And we had the family dessert plate. OMG. You have to try it to believe it!

The flavor and presentation of our food was excellent. The meals are cooked to order and they can accommodate gluten free or vegetarian or any other food preferences. We had the ravioli of the day, butternut squash that was about the best I have ever eaten. We also ordered the catch of the day, halibut. The fish was perfectly prepared,... More

Delicious Italian food, emphasis on homemade with attention to detail. We had the tomato bisque, 2 salads, ravioli and an apple dessert which were all the same high caliber. Loved the deep red on the walls and artwork as well as the quiet, relaxing music. The service could be improved as had emphasis on quickly describing the creations. When we... More

Great Italian diner that is certain to please. Second time here and we found our favorites to be consistent and were pleased with the new choices. The Cheese plate is much more than that, with bread toasts, fresh fruit, preserves, spreads, and pickled items. Add the focaccia with butternut squash spread and you have more than enough appetizers for 4... More

We have been going to Iorio for several years. We are never disappointed. The food is beyond wonderful...home made real Italian food. The atmosphere is cozy and the service exemplary. The owner/chef always stops by to chat. We love this place!!

We enjoyed a terrific meal here last night. Arriving early, we were seated at the window by the attentive and personable staff. Drinks were delicious (martinis anyone?). The appetizer and salad, calamari and caesar salad with anchovies were top notch. The calamari was nicely breaded in a corn meal and served with tasty dipping sauces. The entrees, including clams, and... More
