Busy nite for the restaurant and we had to wait a few extra minutes for our table. Chef sent complimentary soups to all of us as we were preparing to order......nice touch. Food was fabulous as always and the wait staff is superb. Make a reservation and go soon. You won't be disappointed!

I had a wonderful dinner with my daughter here. The star of the meal was definitely the torteli ai funghi. We have been to many Italian eateries throughout the world and this was a top 3 dish! Very attentive staff!

We’re always pleased with Mucca! The food is always excellent, and the service is definitely a significant cut above what one often expects in Portland. A great place for a special occasion, but a fine spot for a weekly get away, too.

Great time at Mucca. Husband and I came into town for a long weekend and were able to get Monday night reservations. Food was wonderful, great help on wine selection, service was good though we weren’t sure who exactly our main server was. Would recommend!

We were on time for our reservation, but our table wasn’t ready. We were provided a complementary glass of bubbles while we waited. Once seated, the attention from our waiter was right on point. He was knowledgeable, personable and attentive. The food was beautifully presented and tasted amazing!

Excellent restaurant. We were seated 20min after our reservation. We were offered cocktails while we waited but they never came until after we sat down to eat. Having said that, the wait staff were super friendly, fun and engaging. The food was delicious, everything. Slow to come but excellent presentation and taste.

Always my must-do restaurant when I am in Portland. It is likely the best overall experience in dining I've found in the city. From fantastic food, service, ambience. It sets the bar high for other places.

I'll definitely go back, I just feel like I did not receive the best service from the waiter. After we ordered, I heard him make some insightful recommendations to other nearby tables that would have been helpful when making a choice on dinner.

We had a wonderful experience at Mucca -- great food, attentive staff. They made note of our occasion and it was highlighted when we were served dessert. Would definitely recommend, both for the outstanding food and attentive staff.

This was one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. My boyfriend and I were celebrating an anniversary, which we noted on OpenTable. We were greeted with complimentary glasses of prosecco and the meal was closed out with amaretto gelato, on the house! The service was amazing, the food was divine, and I loved the ambiance. 10/10 for me!

Love dining at Mucca, it always feels special. The creativity of the dishes, the relaxed pace of service and the ambience is lovely.

We ate the prosciutto e burrata, the halibut special and a pasta with mushroom special. Each dish felt it was missing just a tiny little something that Mucca usually offers. It was all super well done, and I just didnt leave with the wow feeling Mucca’s food usually delivers.

Regardless we will definitely be back.

We ordered the tasting menu with wine pairing. Service was quite delayed in the beginning, with no apologies for the delay. The first two courses (soup, scallops) were good, but average. The pork rib and take on tiramisu dessert were excellent. Pairings complemented the food well and were generous pours.

This was our first time. Everyone was very pleasant and wished us happy anniversary. We had the 5 course menu which was a great way to sample many dishes. The only small issue we had was our scallops were barely warm. Everything else was very good. We will be back to try other items on the menu.

We recently dined here on a whim when it was recommended to us by someone we met in our hotel lobby. The service was excellent, the food delicious (we did the tasting menu), and the ambience just right. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others (actually already have!) and would consider returning when in town again.

Fantastic overall, service was good and so was the food. I must admit 1 total brussel sprout in the dinner entree was a bit meager and the sauces were delicious but slightly burnt tasting. Pasta was wonderful as were the desserts. Not enough vegetables for my liking. I would try again.

My wife and I had a wonderful anniversary dinner at Mucca. They welcomed us with a champagne aperitif. Then we had the full set meal with wine pairings. The food and wine were incredible. At the end they brought us a wonderful anniversary dessert. Romantic, fun, and delicious. Not something we normally can afford to do, but for this special occasion it was perfect.

Our first time at Mucca. Great food and service. We had a 5 course meal, which was excellent. The price was a bit high, but was worth it for the special occasion. The music might have been a bit loud.

There is nothing better, in my opinion, than sitting at the counter having a front-row seat to the goings-on in the kitchen. We were met with a glass of cava for our anniversary, and our evening continued in the same lovely way. Simone Savaiano, Chef/Owner, was warm and welcoming, and though the restaurant was busy, he made time to chat with us about his family, (showed photos of his new baby), and told us about his ideas for a pizza place here in Portland. Dessert plate even had "happy anniversary" written on it - and the complimentary lemoncello rounded off the delightful dinner. It was our 2nd anniversary dinner there and we already put the date in our book for 2020! Grazie Mile!
