The food is delicious and reasonably priced. The place has a mellow little vibe, but the best thing about Piazza Italia is the staff. If you don't strike up a conversation with these fun-loving folks, you're missing out.

We've been going to this low key restaurant since moving to Portland almost 15 yrs ago and it's still packed. The food is always reliable and delicious. They're unpretentious and still serve free bread. The appetizers are all simple and delicious. I would give special...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.
