There are so many restaurants to choose from in Portland and many are overpriced, frankly, albeit a lovely ambience. The a-la-carte extras, the skimpy portions, and the rather average food can be frustrating for folks. We ate at Vignola tonight and it was so refreshing...More

Had great anniversary dinner. Lively place. Cheese platter full of tasty choices including some veggies and crostini. Salads are huge. We each got different ones and should have shared. Hubby had scallops which were superbly prepared. I had pork special which really enjoyed.

Why go to this pricey restaurant with mediocre food and amateur servers. There are so many more and better choices in Portland.

We decided on Vignola for a reunion with cousins who we hadn't seen in years because the restaurant took reservations. Service was excellent and the food was delicious, featuring many items that we had never seen on menus before.
