Excellent food and service.
Would highly recommend
After eatin there a few times I’ve enjoyed the new restaurant @ VP. After ordering and tasting my food I actually turned around to see if Matt Sigler was in the kitchen, only because he tastes his food before it goes out, he wasn’t working, and it was obvious. I’ll make sure he’s on next time I’m dining.
Excellent meal with the best services I've seen in years. Nathan our server was excellent. Allison, the manager stopped by several time to check on us. It was really a great meal. I highly recommend.
Excellent service and food, servers and waiters were very polite and always stopped to ask if we needed anything.
Good Italian food. Would like to try more dishes. Had the chicken and pasta which had too little chicken and too much pasta. Others had the veal which was excellent.
We enjoyed dining before theater. Service was speedy, and the food was amazing! Discovering sharing here is encouraged, we shared the 22 oz steak...which we highly recommend. The salads and sides were very delicious.
Was great! We were two extra ppl and they totally took care of it.
Wonderful brunch. Everything was outstanding
Enjoyed the experience. We had two great servers. The Caesar salad is a must. Spaghetti and meatballs is also quite good. Not your traditional, but very filling.
The food and service were very mediocre. What a disappointing dinner. My daughter and I each ordered a different salad and split a pasta entree. My salad contained at least one smoked meat which was not listed on the menu. I cannot eat smoked meats and would have never ordered the salad if I had known. A second salad was substituted but it contained much too much kale and the white sardines were not that good and certainly were not worth the extra $2.00. The pasta was just so-so. The server did take our initial orders but then quickly lost interest in us. I needed another fork and spoon for the pasta nd had to take it off another table as our server was nowhere around. I felt the meal was a complete waste of time and money.
Once again a fantastic meal with great service. Would recommend it in a heart beat
We had our dinner family style to everyone could enjoy something different. The pastas, sauces and meat dishes were outstanding. Service was exceptional and even the deserts tasted authentic. Our party was for a college friend of our daughter who had just gotten back from Italy and even she was amazed at the dinner.
50’s music with Italian?? Too loud as well had to move to quieter table. We liked the place before pazzo Italian was better by far. Not on our list to return.
Veal is extremely delicious. Great waiters and service from entire staff. Great wine list. Can't wait to return.
Our server Tara was amazing. All dishes were delicious. I would keep ilsilito in mind
It was my second time there and I chose it for my birthday but it really was not as great as it was the first time. The first time it was really great.
The food was amazing!!! So creative and delicious. The chef came to our table to check in and deliver food. Really outstanding and I highly recommend it!
We have had good experiences here before but this time it was not good, very poor service and the food was so so, not sure we will be back....
Was really looking forward to trying this new restaurant from established Portland chefs.
I’m a local. If I was staying at the hotel and this was the hotel restaurant I might evaluate differently.
The whole experience was hit or miss. The prices are the same as other higher end PDX restaurants like Higgins, Renata, Gorgios but does not match in food and beverage quality or service level. Cocktails were unremarkable and definitely not craft. The Cesar salad was just okay and the other salad was totally bizarre. It was described as a salad with seasonal vegetables. Obviously the chef hasn’t visited the farmers market lately. It was primarily too hard fingerling potatoes, radishes that had the consistency of being too long in storage and similar quality root vegetables. Our farmers markets are filled with exciting early summer vegetables.
The pastas we ordered were just okay. The bread crumbs on the fusselli were over cooked and hard; the crab seemed to have gone awol. We ordered a panna cotta dessert and what was served was a pudding in a glass.
Our waiter at times was over attentive—like getting us to order—and then under attentive when it came to checking in during the meal.
Doubt this will warrant a return visit. For those visiting PDX there are much better options within a couple of blocks.
Waiter was attentive. No amenities, for example bread/olive oil.
Food was mediocre, sadly, and not a lot of options for vegetarians.
We came in for dinner before our son’s high school graduation, to celebrate. Cedar was our server. He was excellent! He really knew the food and made great recommendations. We shared lots of items, which is the way to go. The garlic knots and the tuna carpaccio were the big favorites- I am still dreaming about the tuna!
Steak was excellent and big enough for two but also $75. Chopped salad was good as was dessert. We weren’t thrilled but might go again.
Great food. We were there during the Starlight Parade so it was very noisy.
They messed up my wife’s dinner but fixed it and offered us some olives and veggies while she waited for her dinner to be corrected.
Overall, great restaurant!
Amazing ravioli with dress morels. Great drinks and really excellent service!
Had a lovely evening. Great service...especially considering our large group.
One menu suggestion: at a minimum, serve bread with any of the pastas with a red sauce. How else can one enjoy every last bite of the deliciousness?
And, please update the menu on the website.
For example, we were really excited for pistachio gelato....but the only option was a strange berry concoction. Simply changing the gelato listing to "varies" would at least keep people from getting disappointed if they were expecting something specific. Plus, it really wasn't a true gelato. More like ice cream... with a very weird flavor.
Finally, there is something to be said about simple and yummy desserts. Play around with the cocktail menu if you want to do something creative. Keep the desserts true to the Italian style--there are very few Italian places in Portland with true Italian desserts!!
Had an outstanding experience with a nice relaxing Italian dinner to celebrate a bachelorette party! The food was incredible, and the service and attention we received from our server, Cedar, was also exceptional. Thank you for making our night so special!
Really enjoyed the Manhattan (one of the best I've ever had), tuna carpaccio and home-made pastas. The waitress was a little too talkative and the restaurant was a little noisy, but we'd go back again.
All the food we enjoyed was spot on...with the exception of the veal. For my taste, the veal was too salty and I was unable to finish. To her credit, our waitress didn’t even charge me for it...that’s real customer service! After all, I was expecting to pay for it. Other than that, our cocktails and wine were excellent and wait staff top notch.
Great service ...
First time there since change over from Pazzo. Felt the new table arrangement was too confining, so a waitress suggested we try a table in the bar. Sat side by side and loved the uncrowded feeling. The Caesar salad was fabulous....not too wet. The spaghetti and meatballs were the best I have ever tasted, topped with a large piece of grilled bread. My wife had shrimp, which she loved. The service was very friendly. An overall great experience.
We have dined here twice since Il Solito opened a short time ago and both times have been excellent. All the pastas are housemade. Chef Sigler formerly helmed Renata and is the best pasta chef in Portland and one of the very best on the west coast. Additionally, I am one of those wine geeks who brings their own aged bottles from home and the wine service is reasonable and outstanding (by the way, if you do this as well, remember to adjust your tip to reflect what your bill would have been if you had ordered the same wines off a wine list).
Highly recommended establishment.
Too noisy for a quiet conversation. But the food was good and the service was fine. The Decour was attractive.
Our impression of the food was fair. The restaurant was trying to convey they were really an upscale Italian restaurant but they are not. They didn’t offer bread. We had to ask for it. My rigatoni dish was not good. I asked for no peppers in the sauce but they put them anyway. Wine was very expensive and they had few Italian wines by the glass. Menu was not representative of real Italian cuisine. Small portion and also overpriced for what got. Not likely to go back unless there are changes.
The pasta dishes are delicious. The special appetizer that evening was a deep fried grilled cheese. It was fantastic. The food has an Italian comfort food but still fancy vibe.
We used to go frequently to this restaurant when it was Pazzo's. We have been once to Il Solito and sat outside, due to the deafening noise level inside (Friday night at 7:30). We tried the "garlic knots," which we would not re-order, although the marinara served with them was delicious. We shared an ample Caesar salad which was very good, and one of us had the ricotta ravioli with morels (delicious!), and one of us had the pappardelle with lamb ragout which was also delicious. For dessert we had the sorbetto, a rhubarb/elderberry flavor. The sorbetto had a considtency we had never enjoyed before.....very creamy and thick with a wonderful, tart flavor....a real winner. We found the wine list to be almost entirely very over-priced. Service was excellent.
Went for dinner, around 7pm on a Friday. The restaurant had a good atmosphere, but it was so loud that you had to raise your voice significantly to hear what the person across the table could be heard.
The food was good, but not great. My friend ordered a chicken pasta dish that was fine at best, and definitely not what I was expecting at the $24 it was priced at. Definitely on the bland side. I had the swordfish, which was cooked a tiny bit over. The chard was perfect, and I wish there had been more of it. The olive oil cake with passionfruit was the highlight of the meal, and the only dish I can justify recommending.
As the place just opened, I'd give it a few more months before trying it out. As is, I can't recommend it at the price point.
Fantastic service and food. Loved every minute of it!
Enjoyed a nice Mother's Day brunch. Food was very good, without unnecessary pretense. Service was friendly and helpful. I liked the decor, too...cool spot.
