Iorio is (was) our favorite restaurant, my husband and I are so sad to see it go! This is where we spent all of our special occasions. I wish Chris and the rest of the staff the best of luck!

We have been going to Iorio since it opened. Sadly, Iorio is closing on April 15, after 12 years of wonderful food and excellent service.

GREAT FOOD and GREAT RESTAURANT!!! Been going here since shortly after they opened and am going to miss it greatly. Just dined in again for probably the last time this past weekend, as they are closing on Easter weekend (2017). Can't wait to see what the owner/chefs do next!

Iorio is fabulous; unfortunately, it's closing this week. It is the only place I know of in the Portland area where I can go out for an above-average meal that is gluten free, and feel confident there is no cross-contamination (of gluten). I and countless others will sorely miss this wonderful establishment.

This is/was my favorite Italian restaurant in town. It never disappointed. It has been my go to place for special occasions, and just a great meal. I tried everything on the menu over the years I have been going, and never had a bad meal. Sad to see it close.

So sorry to hear this restaurant is closing on the 15th of April. Have always had a wonderful time and a great meal when dining here. It will be sorely missed in the neighborhood.
Good luck to all those who are losing their jobs. Great customer service, hire them!

Food was very good - had a pasta dish Casarecci that was a bit spicy, garlicky (just right!) with manila clams and kale - but must confess I'm not sure where the clams were hiding. Still a very good meal and a great velvety red wine from Veneto that I had never heard of before but will be looking to find it somewhere!! Have eaten here before and had their special calamari which was very good.

Excellent dinner at Ioria last Friday evening. Great service and great meal! Our favorite by far is the gnocchi although we are never disappointed in any of the selections. Kudos to Chef Chris and his team!!

Loved our dining experience at Iorio. Our dinner turned out to be an anniversary gift from friends, which made it even more enjoyable. We got exactly what we wanted. And loved our waiter
