The temps were freezing in Portland, but this Phoenix native had a warm welcome with excellent service! The food was unique. The bacon pizza with a side of arugula was amazing. (The server recommended the side which was spot on!). My husband loved the calamari, and the extra taster of the gelato was very thoughtful. Thanks for an amazing experience!

Set aside your typical American expectations for pizza. These are made carefully, and you watch every step. The dough is tossed, the toppings (more on these later) are put on, and the pie is put into the wood oven. The result is good (although, in my opinion, not stellar). Our group had one with just tomato sauce, cheese and a... More

I recently met a friend here for a quick lunch and we were not disappointed. The lentil soup was hearty and flavorful! My salad was fresh and delicious! The bread was excellent. The staff was a little cold but warmed up after we ordered. I would recommend a visit!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2014

This restaurant was recommended by a winemaker friend as the "best" pizza in Portland. We haven't tried any other pizza places in Portland so we can't corroborate that statement. However, we enjoyed the pizza. At 5:00 p.m. when the restaurant opened, there were at least 20 people in line. The October weather was beautiful so we sat outside. We started... More

This place made it onto the country's best pizza list, so we couldn't wait to try it. Crowded, young wait staff and cooks playing snap the towel with each other. Pizzas were mediocre at best. Bland sauce. Not much cheese (we had a margherita and a New Yorker)...We were very disappointed. Couldn't have a glass of wine with our meal,... More

My quest for the perfect pizza has taken me all over the world and found some extremely good examples. Ken's Artisan Pizza has now enlarged my gold standard group to three. It was about as perfect as pizza can be. Service was excellent, the pizza makers were real showmen with their tossing. It gets a 9.9/10 which actually is as... More

The greeting at the door was friendly and the atmosphere just feels good. Lightly smoky from the wood and a good sound. Still able to talk quietly without to too much restaurant clatter. We had a group of 8 outside on the shady side. We went at 5. I noticed when we left at 7 there was people waiting for... More
