25 Best Italian Restaurants in Portland

 February 23, 2017 by VacationIdea Staff

Portland is known for being a foodie's paradise and its selection of Italian restaurants certainly doesn't disappoint. The focus is on fresh, local, and sustainable, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t get your fill of traditional Italian flavor.

Portland restaurants serve everything from wood-fired pizzas to creamy risotto and families will be delighted to find affordable kid's menus in many of the eateries. Whether you're craving the taste of Tuscany, the flavors of Sicily, or simply some good old-fashioned Italian-American comfort food, you are sure to find something that will hit the spot.


Portland Monthly, July 31, 2013

"We’ve come a long way since the days when bar-only menus were limited to burgers and beer. Pubs and restaurants alike have elevated their offerings, so say hello to the new, improved counterparts to craft cocktails and small batch spirits. Whether your drinking PBR or a paloma, you'll enjoy top-shelf bar food at one of these seven Portland spots."

"Like a lot of casual offshoots of upscale restaurants, Accanto -- side dish to Genoa -- has emphasized ambience, pasta and cash flow. The corner cafe has become a popular neighborhood hangout, with salami shuffled across tortellini, an array of Italian and Northwest wines by the glass, and a doubly inked atmosphere where squid meets tattoos."



"Accanto's happy hour lasts for just one hour during weekdays, but it offers hearty portions of pasta at a deep discount (like a wedge of lasagna for $6). Drafts go for $3.50 and are best paired with $3 deviled eggs. Says one reader, "for quality interesting food Accanto is fabulous.""




"All day tomorrow (Wednesday, May 8), 18 Portland-area restaurants will pledge a portion of proceeds to the Raphael House, a local agency dedicated to ending domestic violence."
