Terrible Service and Attitude from the owner

I had the worst experience last night ever at a restaurant. We went here for a birthday party. From the moment we sat down the waitress was asking us to order and get done so they could turn the table. We ordered wine and appetizers right away as our guest were arriving. The waitress brought us a different bottle of wine then we ordered but we did not complain just said we wanted the right one when we got the sec... view more

Worst service ever experienced - no stars

There is no bar or area to have drinks while waiting for all to show up, so we made a reservation for 9 people at 5 PM to celebrate my 62nd birthday. A bunch of us women get together every month to dine. It takes a good 1.5 hours just for everybody to show up. We usually wrap it up by 9 or 10 PM. From the moment the first of us sat down we were told to order soon as our table was reserved for 6:30. We let them k... view more

My favoriate neighborhood café

Before we went to Italy people told us that the worst meal there was better than the best meal here. We did not find that to be true, and tastes can vary, but I will say that Piazza Italia reminds me of the more satisfying meals in Rome, and for the price, it can't be beat. Good wine. Good minestrone. Good salads. Amazing antipasti. Very good pasta. Good coffee, and sidewalk dining for those rare nice Northwes... view more

We Love Piazza Italia.. the Food, the Staff, the Wine..\r To us it is our Romantic Night out.. We love to sit outside in the summer.. the warm Porland Night air, the delicious pasta prepared perfectly, the lamb on Saturday night which melts in your mouth, the wine, the conversation, the neighborhood.. WE LOVE PIAZZA ITALIA!

I want to move to Portland to be near Piazza Italia!

After my first bite of bucatini all'amatriciana, I was plotting my move to Portland to be near this restaurant. No, I am not kidding. We fell in love with bucatini all'amatriciana when we were visiting Rome recently, to the point where the restaurant that served it became our neighborhood spot while we were in town. It was that good. When we returned to the US, I promptly found bucatini and got to work recrea... view more

Very Good - Good Italian Atmosphere

Small, open room family restaurant with authentic food and Italian speaking waiters. Great place to pick-up orders to go since restaurant is situated amongst downtown condos. Would recommend.

Getting the story straight

Just wanted to let all of you know that this ""owner"" fellow you've all spoke of, is anything but. I have it on good authority that Alessandro (the eighty year old man who kicked you out) is not one of the owners and is not under any instructions to kick you out. By his own volition, when he can see that line out of the door, Alessandro opts to tell you to leave. To put it simply, tell him ""no."" He has no weight ... view more

Revisting Italy

We live about 42 miles from Piazza Italia. We go there every other Sunday. We have visited Italy three different times for a total of 9 weeks. We have eaten in large turist areas and small out of the way (no turists) areas and Piazza Italia is the only place that captures most of what we experieced in Italy. Traveling and eating in Italy is differant in differant regions. Since the owners and staff are mostly from R... view more

OK Food, horrible service

I will never go back to this restaurant. I have been to places where they make you feel like they are rushing you out the door but I have never actually been told to leave because they need my table. This happened here. It was not like we were there 2 hours drinking water after our meal. We had a reservation and were already home an hour an a quarter later. (across town), after being asked to leave because they ne... view more
