Foursquare Tips

  • One of the the best Italian restaurants I have ever been too. Great service, friendly ambiance, and excellent food.
  • Always great food. Relaxing ambiance and top notch friendly staff.
  • Consistently some of the best food in the city. I am never, ever disappointed. Get the lobster pasta to share and any entree with scallops.
  • Gnocchi with Ox tail Sugo was comfort food all the way. As was the spaghetti with seafood. The house made salted Carmel gelato was delicate and paired perfectly with espresso:-) Overall - great dinner
  • Agnolotti- tagliatelle
  • Corn ravioli with lobster is incredible!!!!
  • Legit Italian food, and I'm Italian!
  • The pappardelle is amazing.
  • The rabbit pasta and lamb one are delicious!!
  • Superb service and exceptional food!
  • Overpriced and horrible service. Food was good but not enough to outweigh the negatives!
  • You must try their Agnolotti ... Who knew corn and mascarpone could be such a lovely combo!
  • If you don't know what to get, order a handful of small dishes and a pizza. Group of 2 or more, of course.
  • Artichokes were good, but too fried and oily. The part in the middle is best. Lobster pasta great...probably due to butter. Lamb pasta also good. Half portions are enough if you're getting appetizers.
  • A sophisticated Italian restaurant alights on Sellwoods main drag and attracts an unlikely crowd of lively Portland diners.
  • On the current menu (may, 2010) you have to order the bruschetta trio and the roman style roasted baby artichokes with sea salt. You've never had artichokes like this before...unless you're Roman.
  • Ask about wines off the menu.
