Description: Owner and head chef, Marco Roberti, has recently returned to Portland, Oregon after graduating from culinary school in Florence, Italy to open his dream-come-true restaurant named for his grandmother. The food is fantastic, the prices are very reasonable, and the atmosphere is authentically quaint...complete with a little Italian man serenading on his violin from the corner of the small dining room! Check it out for either lunch or dinner...it's sure to be well worth it!

My husband and I went here last night. Food was great and service was top notch. I recommend the blood orange Cosmo! And the meatballs. During a conversation with our server, we mentioned we were on our honeymoon and she returned with 2 complimentary glasses of champagne. Totally unexpected and appreciated. No big fuss made. Just a simple cute gesture.

The risotto was amazing. Probably the best I've ever had. Service was friendly and quick. Highly recommend.

Delicious dinner in a cozy environment. Restaurant feels very cozy and the cooking feels like an Italian grandmother prepared it. I would definitely go back there again!

Very average Italian food. Given the food options in Portland, I wouldn’t recommend. My meatballs were good, but the grilled eggplant was so-so and neither dish was very hot. My husband had a pasta dish that was okay but again not very hot. Service was efficient but not particularly welcoming or friendly. Overall it was disappointing
