Contemporary Italian | Downtown, Portland

There is really nothing wrong with the restaurant or the food, coming from the Northeast part of the country I’m pretty spoiled when it comes to Italian restaurants. The Northeast has a large Italian population so we have lots of options. A couple in our party wanted to try Mama Mia Trattoria so we gave it a go. To my taste the calimari was too thickly cut and the sauce was very hot, here the calimari is thin, lightly breaded and served with banana peppers and sometimes a balsamic reduction. Our local fisherman supply a good part of the country with this delicacy. The Chicken Picatta was very nicely done, as was the Carbonara,nothing to complain about here. The Manicotti and Lasagna were large portions but average. The desserts were excellent (tiramisu and lemon cake). As I said earlier there’s nothing wrong with the food here and many will be well satisfied. More

I let my server know about it after we were done and she was very nice about it. I would like to try them again sometime as described with the cabbage. I would like to have more crunch. More
