Lorenzo’s PDX

Have you been to Lorenzo’s? We had dinner there last night and the food was awesome! It reminded us of our travels in Italy, specifically this trattoria in Firenze. For our appetizer, we ordered the smoked cheese on fingerling potatoes with prosciutto. Melt in your mouth goodness, even the bread was great. For main courses, I ordered the Fresh Black Linguine with Prawns and Scallops while Marcel had the Chicken and Eggplant Parmiggiana.

When it comes to restaurants, we have our own set of criteria when judging whether it goes on our list of recommendations. This one makes the list. We look for reasonable prices – here it is $9-$15 for mains, casual atmosphere – we don’t like paying for fancy tablecloths and designer interiors, down-to-earth not overly friendly service and of course, most importantly good quality, great tasting food. Don’t get me wrong, I still believe that there is a place for fancy tablecloths in our lives but that is more the exception rather than the rule.

The verdict? We will be coming back for more.
