5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2008

Incredible real homestyle italian food. Expect long waits as a result but the food is amazing and that imported staff are great. This is a roll up the sleeves and chow some pasta with a glass of chianti kind of place. Nothing fancy, but just solid as hell. This coming from a Chicagoan who knows great Italian food.

Food is delicious, unfortunately it is very small and you have to wait a long time when it is busy. It is very hard to make reservations for this place because the staff doesn't seem to know how and they will also make you feel like you're getting kicked out of the restaurant once you're done with dessert and coffee because they have another party waiting.

Really makes you feel like you're in Italy. Not my favorite Italian in Portland, but the atmosphere is the tops. Go for an Italian soccer game.
