The music was so loud that we couldn't hear each other. Would not return even though the service was good. Food was only so.so. but turn down the music!
Had a nice warm olive appy and shared a crab linguine that was remarkable. Thanks to the great server for recommendations. Of course a couple of glasses of red wine. YUM
Absolutely exceeded all expectations! Can’t wait to return!
We started with the bruschetta, which was different, borlotti beans with a giardinera topping, and quite good. The penne alla vodka was one of the best I have had. Dessert of apple crisp topped with vanilla ice cream, and cappuccinos topped a very lovely meal. Our server was very good and very knowledgeable about the menu.
The space felt a little like a diner but the service was stellar and the food delicious
Simply outstanding in every way- but Most of all Chef Matthew Sigler’s food was intricate, full of flavor, and so creative. One of the best meal’s I have had in a long time! Can’t wait to go back :)
A friend recommended to me, so I recommend to everyone! Food was amazing...I think we tried every entree in our group...and you cannot go wrong!
Short menu that changed often. We had the Charcuterie tray and it was very well prepared. I had the Venison Shank Papardelle with Parsnips, excellently done.
Service e was excellent, not over priced, would go there agsin.
Fantastic dinner and service. I will definitely go back next time in Portland. What a treat
Phenomenal staff, food, location and ambiance. The best Italian meal we have eaten since a recent trip to Italy. Worth every penny!
Ordered drinks that never came, ordered raviolis and got 8 raviolis only in a $20-25 plate.
We were there for a business dinner and it was perfect. Food was delicious, wait staff was knowledgeable and courteous, and we felt very well treated. Make sure to order the mozzarella sticks - not my typical order but they make the mozzarella here and it's the best I've had. Pasta is a sure thing and Caesar salad with anchovies were a definite hit.
The food was amazing. The service was also amazing. It was a great experience.
Excellent food. We had the fried spaghetti which was amazing. We were in the back close to the kitchen, and that, as well as noise surrounding us, made it almost impossible to have a conversation. However, we did love it and will be back, and next time know it is not a place for quiet conversation!
Everything was perfect!!
Birthday celebration with complimentary prosecco toast was amazing. Our server was the best!!
our server was fantastic - Had a very nice time and would visit again
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The food was excellent and the staff were professional and fun!
I don’t under the high rating. This was the worst Italian meal that I have had in years. Every dish was dry and over cooked especially the pasta. Awful sauces.
Fabulous Italian near Pioneer Square area, food is excellent and prepared with a little twist.
Possibly the best Italian restaurant in Portland.
The Fried Spaghetti was delicious! I highly recommend.
This restaurant was average. The food was just OK, the portions and menu were small. It wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t good.
Great service and amazing food. We would recommend giving it a try.
Whole staff was amazing. Food was outstanding. I’ll definitely be going back!
The pork collar which was a special for the night was hands down the best pork I have ever eaten! The ambiance at Il Solito I found to be odd and the service was good but not great.
Food was amazing good atmosphere
Was an amazing meal!
Went there for lunch. Pretty limited lunch menu. Would very much like to dry a more expanded dinner menu
Food was ok, the chicken Parmesan at $30 created high expectations but it was chicken Parmesan, nothing special. Was hoping for a twist ):
Staff was amazing and service was excellent
Dinner was fantastic and service was exceptional. Definitely will dine at Il Solito again!
They treated us so nicely with great enthusiasm in such a swift manner. The food was amazing and I enjoyed every single bite, along with the atmosphere. It was spunky and new all while classy and upscale.
I am crazy about the pasta dishes (and everything else we have tried) at Il Solito. It is a restaurant to which you must keep returning because you can't possibly try everything on a single visit, and then you keep ordering the same items repeatedly because they were so delicious. It is frustrating in the most wonderful way!
It was a bit of a miss on our part. We had to sit outside (our dogs were with us and the patio is dog friendly), but it was very windy and chilly. Was offered blankets, but then had to repeatedly follow-up for them in order to actually get them (no outside heaters!). The food was good, just not great. The service was very friendly and the birthday dessert was very good.
We enjoyed this restaurant two nights in a row. Superb staff and fabulous food.
Not impressed. SLow service, food was mediocre. Pasta was made to order but it was not good. Will not visit again.
We had a lovely late-night dinner to kick off our mini-honeymoon. Our server suggested that we choose an appetizer and two entrees from the menu that he would then serve as a multi-course family-style meal. Our food was phenomenal and we were given a glass of champagne on the house since they knew we were starting off our honeymoon. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Appreciated the insight and suggestions of our wait person
Went for a 50th birthday party. Server started off by making a negative comment about the winery from which we had brought some wines. Then he suggested we eat family style, which is fine, but the guy filling our water told us it was because they couldn't produce more than 4 pasta dishes at once so they'd all be staggered anyway if we ordered our own dishes. Then the waiter wouldn't take or put in our order for appetizers until we had everything else decided on. Said he had to put the entire order in at once, because that's how he does it. Uh, okay. So we couldn't even start off with some appetizers as we perused the menu, we had to rush through and decide on everything in order to even get started. It was an odd experience. The food was good though. Not the best I've had, but good. We left missing Pazzo's.
Portions seemed small but delicious! There were 4 of us and everyone was happy with their meals! Definitely would go back!
