    You will clean your plate. I don't know if this is a family owned business but if not they do a hell of a job making it feel like a real Italian owned place. Service is casual & friendly.

    A bit of 'Batali' in the Pearl. Family run, always busy. Ohhh, the pasta. Great prices and service. One of the best tourist secrets in Portland. Nice and affordable wine… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Delicious, down home Italian. It's consistently delicious and one of my regular go-to's. My favorite dish is the Rigatoni Bolognese or the Parpadelle with slow cooked boar meat sauce.

    Don't miss the mushroom bruschetta - mmm - so delish. Barbera by the glass was also really tasty. Like everyone else suggested the pasta and specifically the pappardelle were amazing!

    Incredible Italian sausage. The fresh mozzarella melts in your mouth. I'm usually pretty picky about my tiramisu...but this was perfect expresso, liquor, and cream

    Pasta Burina is unique to Piazza Italia, if you don't mind a dish a bit on the heavy side try this!

    Just pretend you're in Italy and go with it. Sharing dishes works out and the house wine is just fine.

    Get the Monti de Mari instead of straight pesto. It has the same creamy basil goodness, but adds a kick with shrimp and mushrooms.

    Pasta is unique. Service is spotty and slow. Wait staff inattentive to sidewalk customers. Crowded and “too proud of itself”. Good got one tine visit
