Espo's (once known as Esposito's) once could boast the finest Italian cuisine in Portland, but not anymore. The chicken parm was good, but the pasta had almost no sauce on it. The Portofino had mussels that were not open after cooking (at least one-third). The bread was served cold and the salad contained rotten lettuce. All in all, if you want an outstanding Italian experience, don't go there or go with reduced expectations. Sincerely, The Common Gourmet.
