  • If you want to know what a restaurant in Italy is like this is the place. I lived in a small town in southern Tuscany for almost 2 years, near my dad's home town. This place made me long to be back there. From the great food to the noisy atmosphere. Yep, most restaurants in Italy have the soccer game on the TV and the family is sitting around watching it and serving tables at the same time.

  • Order: pasta-everything is great!

  • This restaurant is amazing! A small hole-in-the-wall located on Johnson Blvd in downtonwn Portland, it's packed every night. If your party is to be larger than 2 people, plan on making a reservation, or you will have a wait.

    The restaurant is run by a family of Italian immigrants, and is noisy and eclectic. There are soccer jerseys decorating the walls, as well as a number of posters printed in Italian and a small television blares in one corner, tuned to an Italian music video channel.

    The wait staff is friendly, affectionate, and funny, and the food is delicious and authentic, with tastes to please every palate. The wine list is exceptional and extensive, also, and the desserts are to die for. I enthusiastically recommend the tiramisu; it's the best I've ever had!

  • Order: Penne al Pesto, Pasta alla Bolognese, Sangiovese House Red Wine, Tiramisu, Torta alla Cioccolata
