Big hunks of Italian bread with a tasty olive oil, and a "chef's amuse" of artichoke spread on foccacia, started our dinner at this long time Portland restaurant. This was quickly followed by a fresh and wonderful arugula salad with tomatoes, watermelon, and feta cheese....More

Intimate, very friendly staff, good wine list. A bit noisy. The double cut pork chop with peaches was delicious, as were the salmon and the pasta. Very interesting desserts. Reservations advised.

Very small place (consider going with a group of 4 for a bigger table, the 2 tops are tiny) with excellent service and food! It's not inexpensive (1 salad, 2 entries, 2 glasses of wine almost $100) but the value is there. They split the...More
