#21199 Iorio Restaurant

Posted by lario on 19 August 2006 - 08:25 AM in Restaurants in Portland

This new Italian place near my house called Iorio just opened up earlier this month.  Has anyone on this board eaten there yet?

Thios is Lario; I gave a review 8/17. I am not a member of the staff or relative!
I had two excellent meals there and have heard from friends, they did also. The only complaint, I would have is the noise as there is no sound 'muffling' flooring and the high ceiling exaggerates the level.
I would highly recommend it as it is very reasonable for the level of cuisine!
Try any pasta dish or mussel appetizer.

#21085 Iorio Restaurant

I just came across an old ad for Iorio.  It seems to have slipped under the radar. Willy Week briefly reviewed it in December 05.  Their on-line menus don't look bad.  Has anyone eaten there?  What are your thoughts?

We were a party of 5 and were well treated by courteous and helpfuol staff! Chris (owner/chef) added a gracious, engaging element that elevated teh dining experience to one of fond memory!
The starters were very good - especially the focacia. The mussels were melt in your mouth variety. I very much enjoyed my ravioli. The corkage is tres reasonable at $8! then Chris wanted me to try a Napa Valley zinfandel and lo and behold it compelmented two pasta dishes. Food an dwine combing to a high degree!
desserts were scrumptious - especially the advance tasting of the blueberry tart (due on future menus)
Grappa finsihed us off wiht regaling of past meals in Venice and Lucca. This is a real find!!!!
Five of us had cocktails, apps, entrees, shared sessert for under $30 a person. Do not pass go; but do collect your $200 and go to Iorio You will come away with a great dining experience and change in your pocket!!!
Obviously a satisfied customer!
