This is our second trip to this restaurant. Once again we partook of the chef's selection as a five-course meal. We enjoyed the accompanying wines that were selected and the food to the greatest degree. We can't wait to return

Nice restaurant with crowded tables, a good wine list and the feel of Italy. A drop in type of place or celebratory cafe. Garganelli was very tasty.

Everything tasted great and the wine pairings took it to the next level. The only downside was the noise level made it hard to have a conversation.

My husband and I came for our anniversary. The food and service were wonderful. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. The only thing I would say though is that the portions were a little small for the price, but the taste and presentation were well worth it. The dessert was absolutely divine. We ordered three-my justification is that they were small. The almond cake was my and my husband's favorite. We will definitely return.

Service was very good. Food was very good but not exceptional. Pasta entrees had too many ingredients which mutes the tart of any one. Portions were small as well. The short ribs were excellent. Wait staff was attentive and recommended a nice white wine that complimented the meal.
We came in February and the experience was more special then. Overall a 4 star evening. Keep working on creating a distinct dish w unique and discernible flavors.

Our meal was delightful in terms of the food, the wine, and the excellent, attentive service. Unfortunately, the experience was taken down a notch because it was extremely hot inside the restaurant. We were sweating. Not sure if the air conditioning was broken or if they don’t have any, but if you’re thinking of visiting on a warm day/night, I recommend finding another option. Otherwise, highly recommend!

It has been awhile since we have visited Mucca Osteria. Still has the same great quality of service. While the food is always of high quality, we did not find it quite up to our previous visits. My wife had the crab pasta dish, which was good but did not have much taste. I had their steak dish, which was cooked perfectly, but I found it somewhat bland. The best dish was a duck pasta that my son had. It was rich, flavorful, and savory.

This is a great restaurant with great food, it just on this visit it did not quite achieve that WOW factor we have had on previous visits.

This chef-owned restaurant is immaculately run.
Reservation times are honored. The menu is extensive with locally sourced items. Breads, pastas and desserts are made in house and are delicious! The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and willing to please. I only wish there was a restaurant like this in Phoenix or Scottsdale where we reside. Kudos to Mucca Osteria and Simone’s talents!

My boyfriend had eaten here before & wouldn’t stop talking about it. We made an overnight trip to Portland to have dinner & go out. The food, wine, & service was a MAJOR 10. We will definitely recommend Mucca Osteria to friends that are going to Portland. My boyfriend had the ravioli & I had the pork short ribs. Both are AMAZING. Had a few apps & a couple of glasses of wine. Maybe because we live in San Francisco & don’t get me wrong we love our food there, but honestly we got a lot of food for what we paid . There’s 2 things I spend my money on: shoes & food. Trust me the food we got at Mucca is worth it every penny. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THIS PLACE. Thank you

Three of us ladies were celebrating our birthdays. I had the ravioli with sausage, which was excellent. The bottle of wine we had went well with it, as it did with all our dishes. One friend had the short rib, which was amazing! Huge though; two can easily share. My other friend had the halibut, which was good too. Then of the three desserts we had, the one none of us really liked was the panna cotta; the frozen strawberries on it were weird and tasteless. The almond semifreddo was delicious though, and so was the chocolate dessert they gave us free for a birthday gift.

Service was attentive without being annoying and the decor is very attractive. We spent about $350 for the three of us, including tip, which was not cheap but not crazy either. All told, I would definitely go back again. So go, and enjoy!

We sat outside, so noise level was not perfect . Fabulous food, very serious wine service if you ask for someone who knows the wines. Not insanely expensive but plan on triple digits per person. One of my favorites and a treasure overall

My wife & I celebrated our 14th anniversary at Mucca Osteria. We chose the chefs tasting menu with wine pairing. Excellent wines and tasty food. The pasta had a different kinda bitter taste, but all else was excellent! The service was impeccable! Every wine, all Italian & Sicilian, was well explained & interesting! Definitely worth a visit for an upscale dinner experience!
