A group of us went to the Piazza Italia for a birthday celebration and we were so disappointed. The pasta with clams had no taste at all. Our table was not ready when we got there so we had to wait in a very cramped...More

We make a point of eating at Piazza Italia whenever we visit Portland. We are never disappointed in the quality, balance and portion size of our order. We love to sit outside when available- it feels so like being in Italy.

Piazza Italia is my favorite Italian restaurant in town. We have visited several times over the years and it never disappoints. The food is excellent, served in properly sized portions and reasonably priced. I absolutely love their Pappardelle al cinghiale and their lasagna. The service...More

We frankly went because it was Italian near the hotel (Embassy Suites) and it was absolutely wonderful. We went back the second night--the only place we went to twice in 12 days of a West Coast tour, and I think the very best place we...More

We are lucky to have some great restaurants in Portland and this one is delicious, affordable and very authentic, I think every waiter is from Italy. I had the La Burina (rigatoni pasta with pork sausage, green peas, mushrooms and cream) and my husband had...More

The service at this restaurant is terrible. Our server did not come to check on us and he left an empty bread basket on our table for the entire meal. He was more focused on chatting up a large Italian family next to us. He...More

At lunch, there's not the long dinner wait. For lunch, I think it's a good value though pricier than a typical lunch. The food is authentic and delicious. The service is good and the atmosphere is very quaint.

We will be having a special occasion dinner here with our family in July. Can anyone tell us about the wine varieties and beers they serve and price ranges per bottle? I do not see any drink menus/lists mentioned in their website. Thank you.

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.
