Portland >Portobello Vegan Trattoria
Everyone I’ve ever taken to this super popular vegan trattoria, even the most devoted of meat eaters, falls in love. Biggest hits include the Little T focaccia, beet tartare, Sweety-Peps, gnocchi, and hazelnut caramel bombe.
My favorite vegan restaurant in Portland, Portobello serves home style Italian fare that even a Tuscan grandmother could love. Great cocktails (and mocktails) too! Try brunch.
After all the great reviews we were expecting a really special dining experience. Instead our server was so sullen she was verging on rudeness. No smiles, hard to make eye contact with when we needed something, limited knowledge of the menu, and she took thirty minutes to come to our table after we had been seated. She made us feel like it was an imposition to take our order and bring us our dinner.
We ordered a pizza that was good, but the pasta dish was cold, undercooked and lacking in any flavor. Very disappointing. Thank goodness the drinks were creative and strong though.
Wasn't a big fan of the ambiance as the tables seemed to be too close together, so we felt that the silent couple next to us was listening to everything we said.
I would be willing to give Portobello another chance, as there must be some reason why everyone else reviews it so well, as long as we aren't served by the blond girl with the nose ring again.
