Satisfying that Italian Food Craving
If travels to Italy have made you extra picky about your Italian food, Accanto in Southeast Portland is one of those places where the food will taste "right." But they aren't so tied to tradition here that they fear putting their own twist on some classics. A primo of torta di ceci (chickpea flatbread) comes with a slightly bitter dandelion pesto and a spicy carrot relish that feel a bit modernist. And my mouthwateringly good lasagna consisted of spinach noodles, layered with a lamb bolognese and topped with a frisée and olive salad. Not exactly like anything I ever ate on Italy, but nonetheless it just tasted "right. "
