My son works around the corner, but hadn't eaten there yet. When I mentioned Italian, he wanted to try this place. Fabulous!
We'd been sampling Portland beer and wine (see Enzo winery review), so we had only water with dinner, but what an impressive bar and wine package they offer. And a fast, knowledgeable staff. Bunny provided, friendly excellent service, and it was easy she extended that type of service to all at the bar. The atmosphere is great - and it suitable for date night, family night, special occasions, etc. The smell from the wood burning grill will make all hungry, and the pies coming out of the wood burning oven are gorgeous and creative. No wonder so many James Beard award nominations.
We had the sauteed spinach with garlic and parmigiano; the overnight pork; and the pasta with bolognese. Really wanted to also have the fettucini with crab, but there are limits to how much one should eat. Besides, now I have a choice for the next visit.
Yes, this is really a great choice for a visit. On a night when the neighborhood was quiet, this place was jumping, and full until after 9:00.
