A nice fun place for a Sunday afternoon. Small but ok. Staff very nice. Food OK. French onion soup was disappointing....had a slight sweet tomato taste. I ordered the special....eggs with biscuits and gravy and I thought sausage....there was no sausage... Not sure if I'd go again.

I visit Portland, Oregon a few times every year and this was my first visit to Petisco's and I was not disappointed. While the menu is not large there are choices that fit everyone's appetites. Meat, fish, pasta, veggies. Etc. The French Onion soup is Delicious as were our other items. Our server was the best--helpful and knowledgeable about the... More

This restaurant has wonderful food in a fairly small space. In good weather, consider sitting outside in their sheltered sidewalk space. Great for brunch and for dinner.

Small, cozy place, run by young, friendly and efficient staff. The food mixes a home-made feeling with interesting ideas. A relatively short menu but with enough diversity to force you to choose among different good looking options. Excellent selection of wines and beers, including local brews. Great desserts. Reasonable prices.

The restaurant is in the basement of an old Victorian home in the Irvington neighborhood of Portland. We ate in the outdoor courtyard on Broadway street. I had the roasted beet salad with chicken and it was delicious. Had the flourless chocolate 'cake' for dessert. YUM! It was more like fudge than cake. I highly recommend it! For being on... More

Petisco is part of a turn-of-the-last-century house. It is the small place on the side that at one time could have been a carriage house or garage. Don't be put off by the size the restaurant. It has big flavor and friendly service. The menu is rotated to get the freshest ingredients. I had the mushroom ravioli. The pasta was... More

I happened to stumble across this small Italian restaurant on my way down Broadway. Having just arrived in the city I had no idea what I was looking for but Petisco caught my eye. I has a very relaxed and laid back place. The main course was fantastic and the salad was made with very fresh and delicious greens. The... More

We visited the States for 29 days and visited 9 different states. Our meal in Petisco was one of our very favourites. I had the meatloaf and, for dessert, a peanut-butter flavoured pie. The waitress was efficient and friendly. Lovely relaxed romantic vibe to the place, almost Mediterranean in style. Young staff, all seemed to be working hard. We strongly... More

I love their chicken salad sandwich on a bagette. Also roast beef sandwich with horseradish on toasted ciabatta bread.
