Really bad service, Overpriced

Pretty good food but the service was terrible. My dining companion and I had to ask for water twice. Our salads took 45 minutes to the table. My companion asked for a second glass of wine with dinner. By the time she got it, she was half way through the took over 10 minutes and while waiting, the waitress was filling other peoples water glasses, not serving food. . My companion had to walk up to the ""bar"... view more

Best little Italian joint in Portland!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Portland -- Old School Italian with a cosy atmosphere and friendly personal service. It's even a little bit romantic, especially with the live music on Sunday nights. The food is very authentic and delicious, owing the flavors to high quality, fresh ingredients and keen attention to seasonings. My favorite dish is the Pasta Gregorio (spaghetti with walnuts, spinach, artichoke... view more

It's just a freak show..

I hate restaurants that is covered with picture of dead people on the wall....Is certanly not appealing to me and does not put me in a good mood for food..The place is dirty and the chitchen is directly open to the main building garage..(sanitary????)The wine was avaliable at a discount price at Safeway. The food was without wonder nobody was there...

Glad we decided to check this palce out....

Although I have visited most of the downtown restaurants over the years, somehow I had missed this one. Looking at the place from the outside I really did not have high expectations as the layout is quite strange for a restaurant, from the outsdie it looks more like a coffee shop.\r Once inside, we were greeted right away and seated just as quickly. The table was a bit cramped for my taste but I could live with it a... view more

A hidden treasure

Who would of thought that a place in a non descript building next to the Oregonian would be a culinary experience that one finds usually at restaurants twice the price. The food has a freshness and care to detail found in much hgher end restuarants. I highly recommend this to people out for some great Italian food in a casual atmoshere.

One of the best restaurants on the MAX Line!

I didn't know what Lorenzos was for a while. The owner would occasionally come into my work and buy ingredients for his restaurant. I enjoyed talking to the owner, and I was invited to come into the restaurant. I lived by the restaurant for so long, and I walked by it all the time.\r \r Eventually, I did dine there with my roommate one day. It was amazing. The outdoor seating is a great feature of this place. It is... view more

Excellent service, Italian atmosphere and food

Just another Italian restaurant. Warm and cordial atmosphere has disappeared with the sale and the food quality is now average.

Pasta Bella is truly a family-run restaurant. They will take excellent care of you. If you want to sample the wine, just ask. I went for my birthday and the owner personally talked with me and wished me well, then gave me a complimentary glass of wine. The food is excellent but the service is really the deciding factor.\r Don't miss Pasta Bella.

First Timer

My husband and I tried Pasta Bella last night on ""Sinatra Sunday."" I was sooo impressed by the warm family environment. It was a little smaller than I anticipated, but that made it cozy and romantic. The menu is small to go with the restaurant size, but the prices were very reasonable. And, the food was FABULOUS! They also have a full bar with many wine choices, so you can choose the perfect wine for your dish. I d... view more
