We always try to explore an authentic restaurant of any cuisine and this was one such find! When we stepped into this tiny well decorated Italian restaurant, we knew we had made an excellent choice. The house wine, appetizers, pasta and the desserts were exceptional....More

Outstanding, authentic Italian fare. Make reservations. Allow time to find parking. It's a European restaurant so everyone is pretty closely packed, but as long as this is the the dinner you choose to share some secrets, your party will have a great time here and...More

I visited this place by hotel recommendation. Piazza makes its pasta fresh daily. It's a very small and cozy spot and offers outdoor seating as well, but it is a popular place, so reservations are recommended. They have a portion of the restaurant dedicated to...More

A long time Portland restaurant in a great location in the Pearl district. Make a reservation or you might have to wait a long time. There are sidewalk tables, but I prefer the indoor restaurant. This is a family run place and makes you feel...More

I called and asked. They do not have any gluten free pasta. If you do not have celiac disease, there is no concern about gluten in spite of the fact that people talk about it a great deal.
