We had great service! We were able to sit outside on a Saturday night. It was so fun to watch the Portland crowd. Our server was very friendly and courteous. We all ordered different items and all were wonderful. I'm looking forward to going back on my next Portland trip!

Nice casual place with outdoors seating. Authentic Italian. Good fresh food. Waiters take it easy so you don't feel hurried.

We try and keep this place a secret. It's amazing food with one of the most down to earth atmospheres. We go back often, and we will continue to do so.

We ate outside and it was very pleasant. I'm not usually big on sidewalk eating either. The food was delicious. The lasagna was a good rich sauce. The Bucatini all'Amatriciana was delightful also. The service was slow, but I think its because the meal is supposed to be an event itself. I liked how the servers wore soccer shirts.

The Italians love of Soccer and food was evident in their decor and Soccer on the tv sets. The food reminded me of my husbands grandmothers cooking, who was from Italy. Giovanni was a blast (one of... More

When in Portland, I actually plan the visit around when we are having dinner at Piazza Italia. This time, I was with business friends. Two of us had the special. It was magnificent! Everyone enjoyed the food, atmosphere, wine, and dessert. What an authentic place! You must have reservations because space is limited . The fare is moderately priced for... More
