This is my new favorite Italian restaurant, love absolutely everything about. The owner came out and chatted with us, we sat by the fireplace, very lovely. My third visit, will definitely be coming back.

The place is less expensive than other restaurants offering the same foods, parking is easy to find and the staff is charming. However, the food is just OK. It's good but nothing to write home about.

Each of our food choices was delicious especially the zucchini with slivered almonds and pecorino cheese. Divine. We chose to sit inside and unfortunately it was extremely noisy. We’ll try outdoors next time.

I would give it 5 stars overall except for the noise. Energetic is hardly adequate to characterize it. Every time we go, there’s at least one table - and usually more - of 4-10 people talking at the top of their voices, shrieking with laughter, and generally behaving as if they are unaware that there are other people in the restaurant. That’s not unique to Fillmore but it seems to be a persistent problem there.

Apart from that, I like pretty much everything about the place.

We went to celebrate a friend's birthday. Everyone's 1st time. All the dishes were hits. The birthday girl said the tiramisu was the best she had ever had.

We live in the North West and love to walk to this restaurant. Fillmore Trattoria feels like family - the wait staff is friendly, they are very attentive, ready for any questions, and are very familiar with all the ingredients of the food on the menu. I especially love the eggplant parmigiana! Fillmore is a very attractive restaurant and we use it as our "go - to" when we have visitors.

The tables are really tight together. We were seated at a two top, but I observed other couples being seated at four tops. I’m not sure why wear seated differently than others.

Loved the airy, classy atmosphere. We ordered the Calamari Fritti. It was perfect: Not oily, calamari was fresh & tender, light batter and just the right amount of garlic. Service was exceptional. Both entrees were wonderful. My friend said she wants to celebrate her birthday here & we are planning to have our rehearsal dinner here.

We started with the goat cheese balls and could have just made a meal of those, they were so delicious, and it just got better from there. The portobello mushroom sauce on penne was outstanding. We’ll be back!

Clean and very busy. LOUD! Food tastes great. Entre quantity more suited to an appetizer. Seafood Agridolce consisted of two scallops, three shrimp and a slice of bread. Good, but not $32 worth.

What makes this place outstanding is consistency--whether I order one of my favorites or try something new, it's always excellent, and I continue to recommend Fillmore Trattoria to anyone visiting in Portland, as well as locals. The owner and staff are personable, courteous, and helpful--I always feel welcome here and that keeps me coming back. When they have salmon, get it prepared in the oven with bread crumbs and seasoning. Anything with the with the spicy tomato sauce is likewise excellent but it is a bit hot so beware--still worth it. Put this restaurant on the list and enjoy!

Great food. Looks like they were quite busy the evening we were there, so service a tad slow. We elected to dine on the patio, so noise from Vaughn St. was at times overbearing. I'll sit inside next time. We had the Burrata crostini and was excellent. I had pasta of the day, which was ravioli in pesto and excellent as well.

We loved the restaurant itself, the food was delicious, the service wonderful, and we had a lovely, lovely time. The only drawback was the noise level. I don't think we've ever been in a louder restaurant. It was actually hard to carry on a conversation in a normal tone and we were wondering if it would work at all to go back with another couple. We'll definitely be back, but probably just the two of us. We will recommend it, but with a warning about the noise level.

I have been to Fillmore Trattoria three times. The food has always been fantastic and the service has always been exceptional. It is a nice place but not pretentious. It is great for a date night or to take Mom and Dad.

Pretentious restaurant with loud music inside so we sat outside. The outdoor fireplace was spewing smoke making the outdoor dining experience awful. The starters were overpriced, even at happy hour prices. A plate of tiny olives in oil was $4.50. We were handed the early bird priced menu, which we ordered from. When our check came, everything had the regular prices. Good thing we looked carefully. The food was mediocre, at best. The lettuce in the salad was brown, and was sent back. Other food seemed to be frozen food that was reheated. Was difficult to get server to table since she had tables inside as well. Skip this place.

We were meeting old friends for the first time in months, so we were slow to order and not an efficient table. But the server was smart and patient, timing our meal well, and we enjoyed the hearty food. The standard menu tends to lean heavily on garlic and tomato sauce, while the specials were fresh, balanced, and delicious. Fillmore Trattoria did a very good job, and we shall return.
