Welcome To DeNicola's Italian Restaurant in Portland

The Italian Flavor You Remember

DeNicola’s Authentic Italian is a family-owned restaurant that has been part of the Portland dining scene for the last 40 years. The family friendly atmosphere, attention to detail and consistency in quality and service keep our customers coming back year after year. It's like going back to a classic Italian restaurant you'd typically find on the East coast back in the day. 

We focus on the old-school favorites like veal parmigiana, chicken cacciatora,  veal piccata, lasagna, manicotti, cannelloni and everything in between. And just to mix things up a bit and make sure we're making EVERYONE happy, we even have Gluten Free Pasta for those that require or prefer it.

Dress is casual, however we can spiff up pretty easily.

  • A trip down memory lane for me. I've been coming to DeNicola's since I was a wee kid.:-) that's right. Same location, almost the same decor, same great smells and warm, friendly, family service.
