The pasta was spectacular. I had the mushroom pancetta special with white truffle. My wife had the Alaskan halibut. I also thought the chef had a pretty amazing chefs knife.

This is among the best meals of my life. The mushroom Tortellini had a sauce that makes my mouth water now just thinking about it. The food is absolutely DELICIOUS. The atmosphere is nothing super special, but we enjoyed sitting at the bar and watching the chefs prepare meals. The food, though. Wow! If you are all about taste, this is your place.

If you are ever in Portland, this is a must. We spent five days in Portland...had great food and fun...but Mucca was the highlight. Great service, and an original menu with a great variety. The food and display were the tops in the City. Do not miss this one.

Amazing service! Amazing food!!! Perfect coursing, food was delectable and you could taste the passion behind it. We were greeted with bubbles for the celebration. One of the most heart warming meals we have had a really long time. We really appreciate you and our hearts are full of love. We can’t wait to come back to Portland and enjoy you!

I can't say enough great things about this dining experience. Truly the best I've had in Portland. Chose this place based on their reputation as an Italian fine dining establishment for a special occasion. I made reservations well in advance and noted it was for a birthday. Our reservation was at 6pm and we were promptly seated. We decided on the 9-course chef menu with wine pairings and I was more than blown away by every course. Fresh, current, unique, thoughtful, sensual. Our evening was four hours of culinary BLISS - not because service was slow, but because we had NINE courses and wine, and bonus pours, and cocktails, and very thoughtful conversation with the sommelier who knew every wine like he wrote the book. I hope you enjoy the photos - wish I could have uploaded more. Definitely place Mucca Osteria at the top of your summer to-do-dining list. You will not be disappointed.

Our visit was for a celebration and the restaurant did not disappoint. Fabulous food; fantastic wine selection and outstanding service. In fact, this was European service at its best. We are so glad we chose this place for our special occasion and will certainly be back at another time. Made reservations through open table and received timely and appropriate reminders before our upcoming meal.

The perfect birthday dinner for my wife! We felt like we were back in Italy. The food was amazing and the waiter was equally as amazing. His knowledge of the wines was spot on. Also the drink list did not disappoint! One of the best Manhattans I've had. We can't wait to go back!

We loved our dinner there. Everything was so great, the food, the presentation, the servers. We truly loved everything about it. We recommend this restaurant to everyone we know. We don't know why it isn't on Portland's best restaurants list at the top.

From the moment we walked in, we loved everything. The service could not have been better. Oh but the food was the star. We decided to order three items and split them all. The kitchen was kind enough to do it for us, a huge help. We had sweetbreads, which we loved, it was wonderful. On to mushroom ravioli, sublime. Rack of lamb...how do they make it cooked to perfection all the way through? Perfect. We declined dessert because we were full. But when they realized it was our anniversary, we were treated to a complimentary panna cotta, a lovely light ending to a perfect dinner. Our new favorite restaurant.

It had been a while since our last visit, back this time for a 40th birthday. Service is top notch, and they turned it up a bit for this special occasion. Easily one of our top 10 dining experiences ever. Can’t say enough.

The fish special (halibut) was a touch on the dry side. That’s about the only negative thing I can come up with. Looking forward to going back again.

Absolutely one of the best Italian dinners we've ever had. The salad, brucheta, pastas and panna cotta we're all superb. Only downside is the meal was very expensive which we expected. For perspective only, we are 68 and 72. So, lots of pasta under the bridge.

I was seated at the bar as I was by myself so it was a little noisy as the kitchen is right behind the bar but nonetheless the food and service made up for the higher noise level. The halibut was about the best I have ever had, the waiter helped choose the right wine and it was just a very memorable experience.

Everyone in Portland should take the opportunity to try this great restaurant.

We recently celebrated a special birthday at Mucca Osteria and were made to feel so special from the moment that we walked in until we left. We did the 6 course tasting menu which was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented along with a couple bottles of wine recommended by our waiter which perfectly complemented the food. Service was impeccable and perfectly orchestrated with many different servers bringing food, removing dishes, changing out silverware, etc. throughout the evening. Everyone in our party of 4 loved and savored each course and appreciated the special birthday treats (thank you, Chef!)and being made to feel as if we were welcomed into someone's home. We look forward to returning and highly recommend Mucca to others.

The host, or manager was instantly rude, we had a reservation but changed the time as soon S they opened( from our hotel)
He told us we could only sit right by the door because we changed the time, there were many empty tables at the time.
The menu is very small, not many choices. I ordered the duck breast, it was raw, cold and couldn’t even cut it with a steak knife. Horrible!
They were so rude, don’t know why a good hotel would ever recommend this establishment.
