There are hundreds of restaurants in Portland. Scores of good restaurants. There are some memorable restaurant personalities too. But when we think of our go-to place, it’s always Fillmore Trattoria. And while the food is fantastic (happy to make my suggestions), the secret sauce is Spencer Gwin, his lovely new wife Emma, and their entire staff. Every visit to Fillmore is a sweet homecoming, with the conversation simply picking up where we left off. The place simultaneously warms my tummy and my heart. It’s family dinner with a roomful of new friends.

Wow. I wasn’t expecting such a wonderful dining experience that was top notch because I just picked it out without any research. The food, service, and the aesthetics/ambiance were all perfection. We had burrata crostini, calamari, eggplant and Linguine fra diavolo. All seasoned perfectly and every bite delicious. Good call on having the best Prosecco from Veneto! Our server, Colin was fantastic— knowledgeable and friendly with a great smile. Can’t wait to return!

Great food......except one of our meals was luke warm. We were also sitting in the front area so if someone opened the door a rush of cold hits you pretty good. Need to explore some type of wind blocking drapes ?

Food was good, but the meal was slow, and our server was inattentive at best. Our appetizer selections weren't delivered correctly, and desert menus were delivered to the table while some of us were still eating. (Note: they cleared plates for 1/2 the table while some of us were eating). Worst of all, one of our party ended up spending the night in the latrine!

The autumn salad was outstanding as were the eggplant dish, the scallops and gnocchi. We had a great bottle of wine for a very reasonable price ($4 off from $41) because we ordered it during happy hour. The coffee and desserts were also exceptional. The price is always higher than I like these days. The service was always there and always very personable. It was a great experience.

Everything was perfect except they didn’t have any really traditionally simple Italian dishes. No pomodoro, no simple pastas. No seasonal vegetable dishes except salads. Very meat heavy. . But what we had was very good.

Great meal out with friends. Food was wonderful and they were very accommodating on modifications (chicken vs prawns and pasta instead of rice). Service was just right! We will be back and our friends have a new go to place!

Thoroughly enjoyed our birthday celebration. Food was excellent, service was excellent. I wear hearing aids and I found the noise level easy to deal with. And the cost of the evening was entirely reasonable.

We decided to go to Fillmore Trattoria to celebrate an anniversary, and it was lovely. They gave us each a glass of complementary champaign to celebrate the occasion. We ordered drinks, an appetizer, a special mushroom ravioli dish, and a Portabella pasta dish. The food was absolutely delicious! We finished with dessert, a Gelato espresso dish, which was very decadent. The service was great, we didn't feel rushed or ignored. The restaurant itself is very cozy in a good way. Overall it was a very nice place to have an anniversary dinner, but I have a feeling that we will be going back just to enjoy the food, no special occasion necessary.

The best Italian food I have had in Portland. Marissa was a perfect server, great recommendations. Very charming space within a large old house. Outdoor seating with heat lamps and a fire pit. Full bar with a very good wine list. Highly recommend.

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.
