    Not only is the food always beautifully and perfectly prepared, they always have unusual and interesting dishes on the menu. It becomes apparent that each dish is individually prepared. For example, if there are chanterelles in a sauce for the beef, but you would prefer chanterelles to the Matsuzaka in the preparation of the fish, the chef accommodates without hesitation. If we have out of town guests with food issues, the chef prepares a dish consistent with their requirements. It is as if you are dining in a trattoria in northern Italy, with fine food and drink, and detailed personal service. It is quiet for easy conversation. We love it.

    This is an oasis, a place to enter and leave your cares behind. Allow the wonderful wait staff to attend your dining needs. The food is so good, you will want to eat slowly and enjoy every bite. Leave room for desert!

    Excellent experience- three of us had the spaghetti and meatballs, 2 had the tagliatelle and bolognese sauce and one had the lamb dish and all of us agreed each dish was terrific. We also had dessert and it was great as well.

    I sipped a Manhattan while viewing the menu and hoped the food was going to be as good. It was. We started with the Tartara and the Bietole. They were fresh and lightly seasoned allowing for the natural flavor of the dish to come out. Unfortunately we can't remember the name of the pasta dish, but it was very well done. The special was sole with crab stuffing. While it wasn't the high point of the dinner, it was very good. We were very happy with this dinner and would certainly recommend it if your looking for an above average dining experience.

    We took our 90 year old aunt to dinner and when the restaurant filled, the noise level rose enough to make it difficult to hear a normal voice - you had to raise the level of your voice to be heard. Other than that, it was a very nice experience.

    We've been Gilda's customers for years since it opened and always eat here before going to ART just next door. This was the slowest service I can remember. We sat down just before 6pm for our 6 pm reservations, had only a starter, each of the four of us, but our main course was not served until 6:50pm, nearly an hour later. We had to bolt our food in order to get to the play on time. The restaurant was fairly busy, but it has been busy before and we've never had an issue with 6pm reservations. Food quality was good as always. Tomato bisque soup delicious.

    This was our second visit for dinner. On street parking was quite limited near the restaurant, fortunately we planned ahead. We arrived a little early for our reservation, the table wasn't quite ready. We had a drink in the bar while we waited around 15 minutes. The bar was busy but we found a couple spots at the bar. The hostess came and informed us that our table was ready, we were seated right on time for our reservation time. The restaurant appeared full, our order for wine and appetizers was quickly taken, our server (Sam) was quite knowledgeable about the menu. Our courses were served at the right pace for an enjoyable dinner. The food was well prepared and tasty. I did not see Marco (the chef) come out and talk as he did on our last visit, it may have been to busy. Overall is was a great dinner experience.

    I went here for my anniversary dinner with my wife. We were looking for something local and thought we would give this place a try since it seemed to have good reviews. We did not regret the decision. Since we arrived a bit before the restaurant opened we were able to go to the bar downstairs and have a couple of drinks before dinner. Once we were in the restaurant the ambiance seemed nice, and the waiter was very attentive. We ordered appetizers, salad, main course, and of course dessert. The food was all excellent. I usually am not a fan of red sauce other than the one my wife makes from scratch, but the one here is excellent, and she even said so too! Homemade pasta was excellent and overall I would say we had a great time with great food. The waiter also made sure our drinks were not empty and we had bread on the table as desired. Would recommend.

    We go here often and are always happy with the entire experience. The service is very, very good and the food is superb. We started my sharing the misto salad. My spouse, as usual, had the spaghetti & meatballs, which are unrivaled in Portland. I had the special sausage pasta dish in a tomato cream sauce, which was delicious. We finished with the Affrogato and enjoyed it very much.
