A wonderful surprise in Portland. I did not expect such a terrific Italian feast in the Rose City. We enjoyed the chef’s special and it was amazing. This place is equivalent to a NY or SF Italian restaurant. They also have a great wine list. Staff was friendly and efficient. Will return.

The food and the staff are excellent! Carter, the somm, picked out a great wine for us. We sat at the Chef’s table and enjoyed watching the process. Highly recommend Mecca Ossetia!

This is an outstanding, but small restaurant. Make reservations in advance ... and you will be delighted.

This was the perfect restaurant for our family birthday gathering. Service and help with wines were excellent and the complimentary birthday dessert was a nice gesture. We will define my recommend and return to Mucca Osteria.

Excellent upscale restaurant with wonderful food and attentive friendly service. If you like wine this is the place. It is wise to make a reservation as seating is limited.

Delicious, appropriately-priced food that we only wanted more of, expertly-paired wines, wonderful service, suggestions and conversation, in a snug-but-comfortable and beautiful setting. An excellent venue for a romantic date night with my wife. Everything was delectable and the pannacotta was the perfect finish. We feel like we’ve become instant regulars after our first visit.

Never been disappointed here. Creative menu and extensive wine list. Service staff is attentive and professional. One of the few places my wife and I get the tasting and wine pairing and think it’s worth the $$$. Enjoy!

A perfect night out. The staff at Mucca are so warm and attentive that you truly feel welcomed and taken care of. The ambiance was intimate, excellent lighting. The menu was diverse and inventive. The food was delicious and the presentation creative. My friend was visiting from NYC and was so impressed. I highly recommend.

I love the ambiance, it was cozy. Some of the dishes were to die for, like the mushroom ricotta tortelli(?), and sous vide pork(everyone loved that). My husband did feel it was a bit overpriced for what you get, relative to other restaurants...but I think that happens more with downtown restaurants with the high rents. The only other minor frustration is that we had two birthday celebrations, and while it was really nice to have them bring out our desserts with candles, we realized they forgot to ask for our dessert order. So, they brought out two desserts we didnt order AND charged us for them. In their defense, we did not report this(had to hurry home)...but it was strange.

The appetizer was not good. The entree was fair. I was disappointed, especially based on the cost.

We sat at the counter and had a wonderful time watching the chefs create some amazing and delicious food! The scallop appetizer was delightful--the cucumber pickles added such brightness! The sablefish/black cod special was beautiful and so seasonal. And the sous vide pork cheeks were rich and flavorful. We will certainly be back!

The service. The food. The SCALLOPS. Lord. I just. No words. Thank you again for everyone at Mucca for making us feel special and taken care of. Great wine selections and the wine steward knew how to pair wines like the boss that he is.

Service was great

Seated us right away

Food was great
My wife and I shared a salad. It was solid.
We each got a pasta. I got the veal ravioli and my wife got the tortellini al Funghi. Both were very good but tortellini was the best. The cream sauce on the tortellini was amazing.
We shared the sirloin. It was tender and the two sauces it was brought with were good.

Delicious food! My partner couldn't stop raving about how good the food was and kept mentioned that I picked a great restaurant for our anniversary. Amazing servers and owners. They offered us complimentary drinks for our anniversary. We had a wonderful time and the scallop was to die for.

Not impressed at all. The split appetizer was phallically plated and barely warm. Seemed like the scallops were par-cooked for the tasting menu in mass quantities, then reheated. Ours were still par-cooked and not reheated. The entrees were barely warm, but pasta was overcooked and had a play dough-like mouthfeel. Service was overly attentive, but still did not make up for the cooking flaws.

Went here for our anniversary and couldn’t have been more satisfied. The food was fantastic as we ordered the 5 course tasting menu. You could tell each dish was made with care and passion that a customer should expect from an establishment of this caliber. The server and waitstaff was just as equally matched in effort and grace. The standout dish of the entire course was the 17 hour sous vide pork cheek with cauliflower and a port reduction. Oh man that was divine. Please go here! You will never regret it. Ever.
