Review of Il Piatto in Portland, Oregon
2348 SE Ankeny St. 97214
Another joint I couldn't wait to eat at, er I mean, write about.
Again, we drove right up to and parked the Duke in front of our table. Literally [see pic].
Lemme start with a few disclaimers of sorts. Not about the restaurant, about me and the Mister.
1. Chris is Italian American. Like, full blooded. But, when you are around the Fam, you'd swear they are Italian Italian (despite the Boston accented English). The food, the family, the food, the emotion, the passion, the food...
2. Chris lived in the North End of Boston for 3 years or so. I joined him there for approx. 6 months. The North End is the Little Italy of Boston. And we made a point of eating at every restaurant and to shop at every little place we could find. We loved it.
3. We have both been to Italy 2 times (once together once apart/once to the mainland once to Sicily) and didn't stop eating the entire time(s) we were there.
4. So we've eaten a lot of Italian food. Some good, some not so good... But now we have high expectations for our Italian grub.
Because of all that, we were sad to leave Beantown. The the feeling of a big Italian family, a big Italian neighborhood... hard to leave. One of our first nights in PDX we found this lil joint: Il Piatto. We haven't missed Boston's Italian food since. I cant believe it was that easy to find this place. God bless Il Piatto. Now if we could just get the family out here...
What we ordered: I had the Pasta Special, Mister had the Pork Chop Special and started with a Cesar Salad. Dessert of Panna Cotta and decaf coffee.
Il Piatto does it right - you get a basket of fresh bread and marinara (not margarita) dipping sauce as soon as you sit down. And a giant carafe of ice water. They have nightly pasta, fish and meat specials. If you don't fancy one of those, their standard fare is delicious enough to satisfy even the biggest super hungry starving famished belly man.
Depending on the server you can have anchovy filet's on your Cesar :P Some times they say yes and sometimes they feign ignorance about the fish. The lines "there are anchovies in the sauce, is that what you mean?" or "we don't have any fish back there, its just in the sauce" are wicked common in this town. If a restaurant doesn't have filet's in the back it means they don't make their own dressing. Which is bull. I guess some of the servers at Il Piatto don't understand that, but luckily this time we got the smart lady. She always hooks the Mister up with tons o smelly fish. Ew.
I was hooked on the pasta special as soon as I heard it: Pene pasta in a Porcini mushroom cream/white wine/Parmesan sauce with pancetta. I have never tasted anything this creamy. I have never felt truly guilty about eating anything (aside from Veal, or Bunny - which is why I don't eat either) but this cream sauce felt decadently irresponsible. Honestly, if I could bathe in it, I would. Yum. However, the pancetta was cooked to a burned crisps and I actually thought one bite had a rock in it, twas the pancetta. I didn't care. I removed the pancetta from the rest of the dish and continued on my journey down the creamy-flavored-Seine in front of me. Whatever that means. Somehow I managed to not finish the dish, and save some for lunch. I never do that, and I even did it this time without having to give Chris my fork to hide. Or my plate to hide. And yes, these are common keep-Lisa-from-overeating-tactics which you may observe if you ever dine out with us. Don't worry, we will do our best to not embarrass you.
Chris must fill in about his Pork Chop special. He has much to say.
The Panna Cotta here is something I dream about. It pairs perfectly with warm coffee (even decaf). Oh that's right. I stopped eating because I knew I was going to have Panna Cotta. Now I remember.
What we paid: I forgot. Must check check card. I just wanted to write "check check."
Star rating: Waiting on the Mister.
