We found this tiny restaurant on line and it had rave reviews. "Best Italian in Portland!" Well, not so much. The restaurant is, in fact, tiny. We sat at a table in the back and were unable to have a conversation due to being so close to other people's tables. When the waitress came we ordered and she implied that... More

My husband and I discovered Ribollita at the end of a very hard day when were exhausted both mentally and physically. It was truly a balm for our souls. This small restaurant has a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, with soft music and great service. And the food!!! Focaccia straight of the oven and rosemary olive oil to start, fresh and delicious...

Celebrating my birthday on a very busy Saturday night. Our waitress was running behind so we were offered drinks and a run down of the specials by another employee. He was a nice man but was unfamiliar with the wine list and had difficulties reviewing the specials. When our waitress arrived she poured our wine and accidentally poured some on... More

This restaurant was excellent. A relatively small dining room, so I would recommend reservations. The atmosphere is somewhat casual, jeans ok, but could also dress nicer and not be out of place. The service was great, very prompt. The food was the best out of the 4-5 restaurants we tried while we were in Portland. I had the Pan Seared... More

We went as a family visit and all had a good dinner. They make their own pasta here and it is very good. The atmosphere is pleasant and comfortable and not too loud.

Local Friends booked dinner for us and we weren't disappointed. We tried for a 7pm reservation but they were booked. Just as well that we went early. It was a Friday and the small rooms filled quickly. The service was good, but the kitchen was a little slow on deliveries. I suspect they want to make sure everything is hot... More

We were a large party and had a nice round table so we could all chat. The service was wonderful. We had the house wine by the liter which was great and everyone loved their food. I had the antipasti for an appetizer which was very different but tasty and the beef cannolonis which were good - served very very... More

My husband and I had been meaning to try this place for quite a while and finally did so last week. I am glad we did because it was amazing. The scallops with prosecco cream was quite possible one of the best things I have ever eaten. The potion sizes were prefect, any more and I would have been uncomfortably... More

The cheese stuffed eggplant rolls melt in your mouth. The green salad is simple and delicious. The wine list is well rounded. Very reliably delicious.

Have you ever tasted something and responded with the "wide-eyed wow" look? From the first taste to the very last, this was one of those experiences. From the steamed mussels, caramelized onion tart, the risotto, the fresh white fish, to the last bite of dessert, my date and I couldn't stop commenting on the flavor, the freshness and the well-balanced...
