My wife and I went to Serratto to celebrate Valentine's. We were not disappointed, the food was delicious and the service was impeccable. We will definitely repeat. In fact, we are going to have our
50th Anniversary there in August.

I like most everything about Serratto. The service is great. The atmosphere is good. It’s not too loud. The only issue I had was with the food. Two different dishes were too salty. My entree and also the calamari. I do not eat a low salt diet. This was noticeably too salty. If it wasn’t for that, it would have been great.

I liked it so much, I’ll go back and try it again to see if it was an anomaly.

Nice place with good service. My caesar salad and risotto were very boring. My wife's beet salad and pasta were delicious. I thought the food was a bit pricey for what it was, but that's probably what food costs in the Pearl.

Hi, We have eaten at Serratto multiple times. It is one of our favorite restaurants. Our server on Saturday, Tony, made for a unpleasant experience. I really don't want him as our server in the future. It was a certain condescending attitude and miscommunications that upset me. IOt would be interesting to see other diners have concerns with Tony. If it wasn't for him I would definitely recommend and have recommended Serratto to friends.

Take care, Jim Motroni

The food was just OK. We were expecting a far better experience. The price point was way to high for the quality. Had pasta with shrimp and lemon sauce. Shrimp was overcooked, little to no sauce.....didn’t bother to take it home. There are way too many excellent Italian restaurants in Portland to ever go here.

Serratto is one of our favorites but this visit didn't live up to expectations. Service was very slow and half our party was served well in advance of the others and the food was cold. We had been strong advocates recommending this restaurant but are not as enthusiastic now. We are hoping this was an off night and will be back to try again.

We have been coming here for several years usually with a pleasant experience. Tonight (a Friday) we arrived early to our reservation for two and were happy to see several open tables in the main dining room. Instead, the hostess led us to an overflow area in the back that had a couch, some easy chairs around end tables and what looked like patio furniture. We told the hostess this was not acceptable to us for a meal reservation and would like one of the open tables in the main dining room. She said she would check, but, on her return she told us it was either this or bar seating. We decided to leave and go somewhere that appreciated frequent patrons. An hour or so later, when returning to our car, we walked by Serratto and noted some of the same open tables in the dining room. I have had my suspicions that Open Table reservations could be viewed by some as low priority and I guess this goes to that point. A shame they try to leave those open tables visible to passers-by to lure them at the expense of others. This is not the first time it has happened to us here. Serratto..... you just a loyal customer.

We love Serratto. Whether it’s for delicious pasta; perfectly cooked fish, or as on this cold night delicious burgers. Serratto’s service has always been a hallmark of this restaurant. This is true wherther I’m with a large party or dining solo. Unfortunately, this last visit was an exception.

It was a misfire from the time we were seated. We had a 7:15 reservation. The restaurant was fairly full both in the bar and the dining area. There were several large parties so we attributed this to the inconsistent timing of seating, drinks, menus and finally taking our order.

Salads came out quickly but entrees took awhile. Once we were finally served, very soon after the server began asking if we were done; did we want a to go box, and could she clear our plates. The first pass occurred when I had over half of my hamburger on my plate and was clearly still eating, I ordered another glass of wine so clearly I wasn’t planning on being done right away. The server kept coming over and we kept saying we were still eating. Then she started reaching across the table to clear anything we didn’t appear to be using. One of our guests had to literally grab back her wine glass.

Yes, the restaurant was clearing out but we were no where close to the last customers. Perhaps we were this servers’ last table. And it wasn’t as if we were lingering. It was 8:45 when we got in the car.

Will we be back? Yes—because we are assuming that this lack of service was an anomaly. But it did make this particularly visit less enjoyable.

This was a memorable dinner date for my wife and I. All courses of our dinner were excellent from the French onion soup and beet salad to our entrees (scallops and clams & spaghetti). The pace of the service was perfect, nothing rushed nor delayed so that you wonder where your food is. Meghan, our waitress was very helpful without being unobtrusive. Most of all Meghan was cheerful and seemed to really enjoy what she was doing and this added to our enjoyment of the evening.

Went on a date for New Years, and it was perfect. The staff were all incredibly friendly and festive. The dinner specials were delicious sounding and had wine pairing suggestions with them. I had the beef tenderloin, my partner had the cornmeal cod, and both were so wonderful. Very unique flavors and high quality ingredients. The dessert was also fantastic!

Food was delicious and wait staff was friendly and professional. Sara was wonderful. Only complaint was our table. I was facing the wall and it felt claustrophobic. Delightful in every other way. Next time we will ask to be seated elsewhere.

This had to of been one of my wife and I’s best experience at a restaurant in Portland. We are self declared foodies and this place is now top of our list. The food, the ambiance, and the service were all sublime. We had the lobster risotto, tuna tartare, and beet salad and all of the dishes were divine. The service was by far the best we could have asked for. Highly recommend Serratto!

Once again, Serratto was outstanding.

From the moment we walked in the door until we left, service was excellent.

The rigatoni was fantastic as was the risotto.

Serratto is consistently excellent.

We have always loved Serratto.We’ve enjoyed dining there many times on special occasions. This time, on Christmas Eve, we came with two friends. The service was stellar but the food was mediocre. My lamb chops were over done. And then apparently we went to the end of the evening time so they turned on all the lights in the ambience became less.I’m very sorry to give a lukewarm re-view for this year.

I was a bit worried when we were seated in the very far corner of the room on Christmas Eve. The waiter was great and made up for it. Food was fabulous except the caesar salad was not upon to the par of the rest of our meals. We'll come back as we want to eat at the bar. Thanks.

We were seated promptly even though we were 10 minutes early. We were greeted by our server soon after and were able to order soup & salad before we ordered our main courses. The bottle of wine we brought was opened at our request and we had a throughly enjoyable evening. The pace of food and attention to detail was perfect as was the food! We enjoyed desert and did not feel rushed (the place was packed including a large group upstairs). We highly recommend this place for any occasion.

Serratto has long been a favorite of mine and now that I no longer live in PDX, I make a point of eating here with friends when I am back in town.

The food as usual was phenomenal, however the server we had was terrible. There were 4 of us and we ordered 2 appetizers to go with a bottle of Sparkling wine but only one showed up. When we inquired the guy looked at his notes and said, “oh, guess I forgot to order it”. He did offer to put the order in but by that time the pairing wine was almost gone and our salads were being delivered.

When he opened the wine we ordered he touched the top of the bottle, and didn’t offer the cork to us. When we asked about the cork he said he could bring “a” cork to us, which of course was not the issue.

Dining at a nice restaurant is not just about the food, it is also about the service. Serratto needs to step up the service to get my or my friends business in the future.

Our family of four (two teens) came here on a busy Friday after walking through downtown to enjoy the Christmas trees/people. We come here often (just as a couple, as a family, or as a family with my mother.) The food (sophisticated, yet accessible, locally sourced ingredients) never fails to disappoint. I had the pork cheeks, wife had black cod, kids had pasta dishes. Starter of crab cakes, calamari. I also very much enjoyed the authentic (house made beef broth, real Gruyere roasted cheese) French Onion soup! (We recognized the) server (who) had been here for years and was very knowledgeable and happy gentleman (even though the restaurant was packed full with Christmas revelers/parties)

It is holiday time so the place was much more crowed and loud than usual. But the Caesar salad was as good as usual. The server forgot to bring my doggie bag and I forgot to ask before leaving. I'll return just not during a busy holiday season.

Serratto has been a favorite of ours for quite sometime. It is consistent in all areas - food, service, ambiance, noise level - and as great as the food is, we also really like the bread; it's an outstanding ciabatta and they serve it with an excellent olive oil. Serratto also has a great bar where they not only serve an the usual array of drinks, but also a variety of new concoctions. You also have the option of dining at the bar. All-in-all, a Portland staple.

Delicious food. Nice location. Tight service. Was not expecting (or wanting) an Olive Garden sized portion of pasta, but was underwhelmed by serving size I was presented with. Maybe 8 pieces of pasta plated. It was, however, perfectly prepared. As an out of towner I would consider returning, but it would not be a lock.

We've enjoyed Serrato several times, with friends or on our own. We continue to find the service very responsive, friendly, and efficient. House wines are above average for the price point. Our spaghetti with clams had a generous portion of small clams; our caesar salad had the right degree of tang and a high quality Parmesan. We were not as thrilled by the onion soup, which tasted somehow burned, and it didn't seem to be the crouton; it may be personal preference, but it was not to my taste.
We wish there were a broader range of vegetarian dishes - it seems that there are more options at happy hour than for dinner.
