Mucca Osteria serves truly authentic Italian cuisine in a warm, elegant atmosphere. We make our pastas, breads, and desserts fresh in house using both traditional Italian recipes and modern techniques. Located in the heart of downtown Portland, Chef/Sommelier Simone Savaiano carefully sources ingredients from local farmers and prepares dishes that will transport you to Italy. Our extensive wine list assembled by Carter Hunt includes over 400 labels from all regions of Italy. For the ultimate dining experience, Mucca’s six course Chef's Tasting Menu offers an array of memorable appetizers, main courses, and desserts. Grazie, ci vediamo presto!

We had a wonderful date night at Mucca. The food was outstanding and service was above anywhere else. We will definitely be going back! My favorite was the almond semifreddo dessert. Neither of us eat seafood and we still thoroughly enjoyed our options. The focaccia bread was amazing!!!!

Mucca Osteria continues to impress me with each visit, even though I always get the same thing. The scallops and parmesan fondue are worth the stop alone.

Food tasted excellent, but of course you will need all four courses due to the portion sizes. Staff were great and helpful, ambiance was nice for a date night.

Belated V-Day outing. We are regulars at Mucca, love everything about it, and have been there often for special occasions and to “impress” friends with our good taste. Ivan was just great, friendly and informed. Thanks!

Dinner was amazing. We did the 6 course tasting menu. It was wonderful. They changed one of the courses, because my mother is allergic to scallops. They were very accommodating. Overall, it was a great time and we will be back!

This restaurant never disappoints. Although the food was always great here, this time I sensed a higher level of sophistication.
But the most impressive is the service and the etiquette at this restaurant. Not stiff though. Just right!

Mucca has been my wife and I’s go to for fancy date nights for over 3 years. The food was always impeccable and the Italian flair of the waitstaff made each visit special.
Our last visit however, was a disappointment. A new menu is lacking in creativity, options and the flavors of Italy we have become accustomed to.
We inquired about the new menu and were told that a new chef de cuisine has recently come on board and has revamped the menu.
My wife had the boar ragu tageletelli and I had the squid ink spaghetti with seafood. The ragu is a hold over from the old menu and is still very good. The squid ink pasta was lacking in salt and seafood.
Even the bread service seemed to lack some of the flavors of past visits.
The waitstaff, although polite and responsive, was not at all Italian, a departure from one of the things we most enjoyed about the restaurant.
Overall a decent experience but a big shift from what we are used to from Mucca. Maybe an off night but with the new menu and chef, it seems this is the new normal.

We did the chef's six-course tasting menu, and it was perfection. Each dish was delicious and beautiful to look at, combining traditional with the unexpected. My favorite was the duck with mushrooms and truffle-infused tapioca. We also enjoyed the well curated and generous wine pairings. We sat at the counter and watched the action. A truly entertaining and stimulating experience!

We have been to all of the best restaurants in Portland (except Longbaan) and Mucca is our favorite. We’ve dined at Osteria Franscescana in Modena and Mucca is the closest thing we’ve found to Massimo’s restaurant right here in Portland.

I travel for my job and I try to find the better "farm-to-table" restaurants each city has to offer. I shy away from chains and "steakhouses" as they seems to be focused on extracting the most amount of money from their patrons. I would rank Mucca Osteria as a "must try" restaurants in Portland.
