It is small and cozy. The menu is limited to amazing pasta, along with Antipasti. The antipasto mista is like a mini trip to Italy. Italian meats, cheese and olives.The gnocchi is a treat, assuming you like cheese and potato pasta. I also recommend the...More

This cozy, out-of-the-way, non-pretentious Italian restaurant in Portland's Pearl District is one of those neighborhood haunts that always feels warm and welcoming. The pasta dishes are good, but the best item on the menu is the cioppino. This Italian fish soup is zesty, rich, and...More

Very tasty food, average price but most of the portions are too small - caprese salad very nice and good capuccino to end your meal. Worth trying it but don't go if you are hungry.

I visited Caffe Allora for a lunch with some coworkers. The food was wonderful, with fresh bread, and very zesty tomato sauce. I'll definitely visit again with my wife for dinner sometime.

The spaghetti carbonara was perfect and heavy enough so that it was nicely complemented by the 2010 Allegrini La Grola. We've been here before, and we'll be back. There were eight of us.

This little cafe is a great representation of authentic Italian in Portland. The owner and much of the kitchen staff do their country proud with a great menu that keeps it simple but good. A nice wine selection. This is a small, but charming place,...More

Great local spot. The ambience is very 'Portland' featuring art, small tables, and a true caffe feel. I found my meal to be just average.

I happened upon this small cafe with a friend and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Nice atmosphere with simple, but classy art on the walls. Great menu of neo Italian dishes. I had butternut squash ravioli. Perfect. I love this dish and sometimes when I order...More
