The food was excellent. I had the gnocchi and it was so tender with cheese sauce. Please make sure to inform them to cook in fresh water or they will use the same cooking water as the regular pasta.

I have celiac and this is my favorite dinner spot in Portland. Best gf gnocchi I’ve ever had
We went in mid-june 2021. Truly the worst pasta dish I've ever had. Unfortunate! The atmosphere is lovely, the drinks were great and we enjoyed the antipasto. Our server asked if it was an allergy because otherwise they will reuse the regular (gluten) pasta water. Points to her for asking.
However, the pasta dishes themselves were absolutely terrible. Not inedible, just...pathetic. I had a puttanesca and feel confident it was just tomato purée with anchovies, olives and capers added in. It had no flavor, body, or spice. I am not exaggerating, it was tomato purée.
My partner, who is not gluten free, got the Pasta del mare. We believe after talking later they also gave him gluten free spaghetti. It was overcooked and he said there was not enough sauce to cover the pasta, noting that he also thought it tasted like plain tomato purée. He is NOT a negative person or a complainer so when he does complain I listen!
High prices should equal quality. This was the worst pasta I've ever had in a restaurant.
