**Temporarily Closed**
Il Solito means The Usual, that one favorite dish you would get every time the family went out to the regular spot for dinner. Italian classics that just might become your new usual include veal piccata, baked ziti, tender meatballs over house made spaghetti, doused in our signature red sauce. Just don't ask for the recipe, it is a family secret.

                                                  Il Solito has become close to our favorite restaurant in Portland for its delicious food and cozy ambiance. Everything we have tried on the menu in three visits has been deeply satisfying and memorable.

                                                  We dined here during Portland Dining Month. The caesar salad was yummy. Second course we chose bolognese and eggplant parm. The bolognese was mediocre. The parm that came was chicken, my companion decided to eat it anyway. He said it was also just okay. Dessert, a lemon cookie gelato, was tasty.

                                                  It was fine. Food was a little bit salty and lemony(I know it’s on the menu) but it was strong slightly overbearing. Overall decent experience.

                                                  The service, ambiance, and food was all very nice. My complaint is in the extra charge to cover the minimum wage increase. It is such a passive aggressive way to deal labor costs and is done only to make a political statement. It is tacky. Please just price your menu to cover the costs instead of slapping on an extra charge.

                                                  We were told that the 28 oz steak was great for $90. It was not 28 oz, was over-cooked and had spoiled spots which affected taste in a negative way. Overall food quality only fair and not worth the money. I can see why no one was in the restaurant.

                                                  Nothing terrible but also nothing outstanding. Food was good but nothing to write home about, although the garlic knots are some of the best I have had. Service was wonderful at times, but it also took them 30 minutes for them to clear our table after we were done eating. We came here for a nice meal before a show, gave ourselves two hours, but that wasnt enough time to get dessert.

                                                  We ate early on Valentine's night. As we were going on to a performance we didn't linger, but the place was filling up fast. Our entrees were fresh, well prepared, and delicious. The wines by the glass were also very good - we didn't try the cellar wines which seem very expensive. Would be happy to return here for classic Italian dishes done well.

                                                  Excellent food and attentive service. Loved it. Try the Caesar Salad and while you're there check out the adjacent hotel lounge which is super cool.

                                                  We were out on a date night, and the restaurant gave us a corner table so we could sit side-by-side in a quiet section. Wait staff was superb -- timely and great recommendations. Food was delicious and portion size suited us both well. Go back? Definitely.

                                                  All our food throughout the entire meal came out at different times. Appetizers, entrees and even dessert. There were four of us. It felt odd that one of us would receive an ordered item, only to have five minutes or more until the next person’s item arrived. Even with dessert... we were done with one item before the next item was brought to the table. Otherwise everything was very tasty!!

                                                  Best osso bucco in town! The wine list was robust and the service was outstanding, I strongly recommend this restaurant.

                                                  I dined here with friends last weekend and was sorely disappointed in the food. Every single item we ordered had a major flaw to it (calamari was dry and tasteless, the prosciutto appetizer was well conceived but just poorly executed, the bone marrow seafood pasta was massively over-seasoned, lasagne had a weird basil crust and was burned, and the pesto penne was over-seasoned and had a bizarre flavor to it). It’s such a shame that the menu was executed so poorly because I wanted to like this place. It has a great location downtown and I love what they did to the space. The service was great and the server was very knowledgeable and helpful regarding the menu options. There is a chance that we went on an “off” night. I hope that is the case because if our experience was representative of the regular food standard, this place will be out of business before too long.

It’s very hard to find gluten free pasta this good! We will be back! Thanks for a special evening before our show! My family are hard core foodies and they all were happy!

                                                  It was Christmas Eve, treating my parents to a nice meal for the holidays. We had only been once before, when Il Solito first opened. We had made a reservation. When we arrived and were seated at a table close to the front doors, we asked if we Could move to a different location, it was 515. We got a snotty answer from the hostess saying that they were 150 people that night. Well, we were one of them and I figured what difference does it make what four top we sat at? We didn’t make a huge fuss but it was very cold every time the front door was opened. My parents are elderly and it did affect them. Amy, our server was very good. The food just ok. We won’t ever go back because there are too many really great Italian restaurants in Portland and when the service started out negatively, that’s a deal breaker.

                                                  The pasta was made fresh, but we were not familiar with this and the server was unwilling to give us recommendations so I think our picks were not as good as they could have been.
