Our first visit and enjoyed it very much. Food is excellent - solid Italian/American with Northwest influences. Some impressive wine choices available - it's obvious they care. Service was competent and friendly - we felt very welcomed. Will be returning soon!

Absolutely adore this restaurant! Fantastic service, incredible dishes, and I can’t say enough about the chocolate mousse. My husband and I have a hard time sharing it!
Their risotto is what dreams are made of. It’s perfection. Whether it’s a special celebration or you just want a really great Italian meal - this is the place. I can’t wait to go back, and look forward to that risotto when it’s cold outside. YUM!

Food was pretty darn good. There was a mention by a couple in our party that a little more sauce would have been nice, but mine dish had adequate sauce. Our server failed to inform us as to the specials. When I saw that they had a caprese salad that was not on the menu I had to walk over to another staff/server to let our server know we wanted that item. We had already received the other salads and they did get it out within a reasonable time. The server did not really seem too interested in explaining the menu or making recommendations. The last time we were here it was quite a bit different.

We will be back of course but we will hope to have someone else. The owner did come to our table to say hello which was very nice and appreciated.

While my review focuses at first on the server, we all enjoyed our time there. The blue cheese chopped salad was great. The eggplant parmigiana was quite good too. Other had veal piccata which looked good.

This was our second time here. The first time was during Restaurant month. The true test of a good restaurant is whether the food is good every time that you eat there - consistency is key. I wanted to go back here for my birthday and I was not disappointed. It was even better the second time! All of the wait staff are polite, friendly and interactive. We ordered spinach and cheese arancini for an appetizer. It was wonderful. I had the short rib pasta and it was delicious - just like the first time that I had it. Lots of tender meat that comes apart with your fork - so flavorful and enough to take home for a second meal. My husband had the crab ravioli and he raved about it. It was a large enough portion for a 6ft 4 in man and it tasted amazing. I got the cannoli for dessert and since it was my birthday it was complimentary. The cannoli is as good as anything that I can get in NYC or Rome. I totally recommend this restaurant. So nice to find a neighborhood place close to home that has excellent food and service and is half the price of going to downtown Portland.

Service was great. Staff was fairly knowledgeable. Food was great. Funny story though... we were seated at tables that on one side had a cushioned seat. The other side had a chair. There are tables and chairs the sit higher in the middle area. I sat with my back to those higher tables.

A older woman came in with a laptop computer and sat down in one of these higher tables and chairs without the staff seating her apparently. A staff person asked politely what she was doing and explaining that normally people wait to be seated. She was right behind me. The staff person left and the lady promptly passed gas very loudly. And right by my head.

I looked at my wife and asked if the woman seriously just did that by my head. Amazing. Of course the woman tried to play it off as if nothing happened.

This was our first experience here and it will be memorable for a very very long time.

As far as the food, I loved the blue cheese chopped salad. The salmon was cooked perfectly in my main dish. My wife had two wonderful dishes, including the gnocchi with the lemon sauce. It was a bit strong for me but she enjoyed it.

We liked the restaurant enough that we are bringing my wife’s parents here next weekend.

I always order the Laredo chicken sausage and somehow this time it was a bit different. Not sure if because I just came from Europe and was expecting stronger truffle taste, but I could taste the truffle during this visit. But nevertheless it is still one of my favorite go to place for pasta cravings!

The food was ok. One of the dishes came out smoking but was cold indicating that it was in a microwave. This was the creamy polenta. I wouldn’t order it again. The waitress took 50% off the dish which was nice. The meatballs were good and the clams excellent as always. The fried ravioli although interesting sounding were dry and rather tasteless. Overall, the food has taken a little dip in what I remember it to be but it’s still worth the visit. I probably should have ordered the usually amazing chicken sausage pasta. Next time...

This is my in my wife’s “umpteenth” time eating at BT And the food never ceases to amaze me and it’s quality and consistency with enough menu changes to keep things interesting. Chef Nick and staff are really on top of their game with new recipes using seasonal local products. On this particular occasion I had the best caprese salad and crab stuffed ravioli! The owner David S Joined us for a few minutes which is always a great additional perk when dining here. The wine menu varies and is always interesting now it’s mainly showcasing local Willamette Valley wines as well as choice Italian wines. We sat outside in perfect weather on the nicely decorated patio.… Can’t wait for my next visit.

Everything was great but I had made a note and called in to remind that when my husband orders his dessert to please bring it in with candles because it was his birthday. But nothing was done and no apology given for forgetting as well.

Food was amazing. Great bruschetta and caprese appetizers. Main courses were a combination of pasta dishes, picatas, and marsala. All were excellent. Turns out Wednesday nights are 1/2 price wine by the glass. Also great!
Solid Italian eatery. Awesome that we have it in north Beaverton.

Brooklyn Trattoria was definitely a winner. It was the first time for all of us, and we all loved it! Family was in in town, but we’re going to end up coming here a lot ourselves!
Our server was Mandolin, and she was very charming and knew the menu very well. We did have a question that she couldn’t answer herself, but was quick to come back with it.
Inside, it was very warm and cozy. Not cramped, we could hear each other, and just atmospheric in general. When we left, the chef was right there to let our compliments rain down on him. I suppose if you had critiques you could offer them, but we had none!
On to food: they had seasonal heirloom tomatoes, and we had them on their bruschetta and the caprese salad. They were beautiful and flavorful, so glad we got to try them! Someone got the chicken piccata, and was very happy with it. Another got the bistecca, which was so tender you could almost spread it on toast. Someone else got the osso buco, which was incredibly delicious and made all of us a little bit jealous when it came out. I got the seasonal ravioli (crab and cheese) served with a veggie corn succotash. The ravioli was good, but I wish I could get the succotash in body weight. It was sooo good! We all sampled each other’s meals, were pleased with our choices, but agreed it’d be hard to go wrong!

One more note: I’m in a wheelchair and it was a non-issue inside. The parking lot was a different issue. Didn’t see any disabled parking, and no ramp to get to the walkway. Was weird.

Special neighborhood trattoria. Very attentive service and good food - the salads were especially
excellent. Went there for happy hour, but were told we needed to sit in the main dinning room -
too bad we heard so many wonderful reviews about the happy hour. We will definitely return and

Already have! So great to have this restaurant near Beaverton and Hillsboro. Great spot to have a real visit as the noise level is perfect for carrying on a conversation and yet experiencing the wonderful ambience. We sat (4 of us) in a crescent-shaped padded booth - so roomy and comfy. The food was absolutely delicious!

Myself, and my group, loved just about everything about our experience at Brooklyn Trattoria. The environment is cozy and intimate - perfect for catching up and enjoying company. The wine selection is good, and they offer half bottles which I always appreciate. The food is DIVINE. We had the fried ravioli as an app, and for entrees had the shrimp scampi, pesto pasta, and chicken sausage Alfredo. We all loved our dishes and really enjoyed what we ordered. Additionally, the owner of the restaurant stopped by our table and let us taste a couple of wines that he had just added to the menu. You can tell he cares greatly about the wine and food at his restaurant- and the guests feel it! Highly recommend.

This was our first visit to Brooklyn Trattoria and it was excellent, start to finish, food and service. We began with the Mediterranean salad. We are salad lovers and this one was terrific with fresh greens, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, castelvetrano olives, golden raisins, sunflower seeds, ricotta cheese and a light champagne Dijon vinaigrette. For the entrees, we had the perfectly done seared Alaskan salmon on a bed of sautéed kale and spinach, roasted zucchini and squash. It was outstanding as was the lasagna. The green bean almondine side dish was cooked perfectly and delicious. The house wines (Cabernet and Pinot noir) were unusually good. And finally the tiramisu was light and like everything else, excellent. All portions were very generous. For a small charge, you can split an entree!

Our dining experience was reminiscent of the great Portland restaurant, Wildwood. We can't wait to return to try their other offerings. It's that good.

When you order something you are experienced with and it comes out very differently, you are negatively surprised. My order of appetizer stuffed peppers led to my negative reaction this week. I was promised on the menu beef and pork stuffed peppers. The one yellow pepper came out with a very minimal amount of meat covered with cheese in two halves of that pepper floating on a tomato sauce.

I have never been served so much cheese on a stuffed pepper before, nor gotten so little meat. The tomato sauce had so little spice to have seemed to me to be little more than pure tomato juice. More was expected; perhaps a new recipe would be in order.

We found the food to be tasty, well prepared and nicely presented. The service was certainly efficient albeit slightly aloof. The Arancini Balls were excellent but could use an optional sauce for those who can’t eat bell pepper.
