I love the fact that I can dash in on my way home from work...grab a slice a delicious pizza a cold beer and call it good for the day. I love the fact that the chef sorta just puts something together for the daily slice of pizza special...You never know what your going to get, but you can count on it being good.

My wife and I grabbed dinner here, and we both agreed our meals were faboulous. I enjoyed a complex version of baked macaroni, and she had a pulled pork dish. Both were outstanding, as was our service. The dishes were obviously well thought out, and the pork dish utilized locally sourced (Carlton Farms) meat. The beer selection was also very good, with a number of small production offerings unavailable at most places. The only drawback was that the dining room is small and open: cozy yes, intimate no.

We went to Pizza Fino tonight with our 3 yr old and the in-laws. We ordered 1 18in pizza and it was plenty for 4 adults and a child. We also ordered an appetizer of fried zucchini which was so good. Fino may not be suitable for children later in the evening, however, at 5pm it was ok; especially since there was a very noisy group in the dining room with us. But, I think the staff may not be used to young children since they put a newly lit candle right in front of our toddler. We couldn't reach for it fast enough to move it away from him! All in all the pizza tasted great. The crust was crispy, sauce flavorful and the Italian sausage on J &R was yummy.

My housemates and I LOVE this place. We have never been in the front but instead opt for the restaurant in the back. Wehave no idea if it is authentic or not, and frankly, couldn't care since it tastes great. The last time we were there the Finoreos were rather tasteless, but perhaps that is because we are used to oreos. Also, sometimes we are offered complimentary breadsticks with a house made aioli-type stuff (again, YUM) and sometimes we aren't, which is disappointing.

Be careful though, as ordering a drink, a soup/salad, a main course, and a dessert (which you will be tempted to eat all of since it's so delicious!) can add up to $35/person pretty quickly...rather spendy for a student!

I have only been to Pizza Fino three times since it opened around the corner from my house...two of the times we had dinner and didn't find it really fantastic...it was good but by no means great. Last night we stopped in to grab a couple of slices of pie before heading home. I was impressed as was the bf. The crust was crispy (great flavor), and the sauce was rich, hearty and full bodied in flavor...amazing. The slices we had were some brilliant concoction called "Dragon Ball" with meatballs, chili flakes, feta and sun dried tomato....this should be a regular item...Oh an the little Finoreos (chocolate cookies filled with sweetened Marscapone cheese....to die for.

Cons: The rest of the food so, so

Haven't been here for at least a year, but we were in the neighborhood. Sounds like from the reviews that there has been a chef change since then. We had great food when they first opened, a few times since,and I can tell firsthand you they still do.

They pizza is still some of the best in town, thin crust NY style. I had the Lasagna and it was so good my wife ate half of mine. The Caesar salad is excellent, and the Asparagus soup was outstanding. I would not say the food is better than it was when they first opened, it's the same and for us that is great news.

I would not suggest this as a place for small kids as it is a quiet, candle-lit dining room. There are much better places for kids. As to the reviewer that could not recommend this place, but without having tried the pizza, the place is called PIZZA Fino...

As to pricing, our 18" pepperoni was $19.50, up from the $18 I remember. However my lasagna was only $12 and the Caeasar salad the we split was something like $4.50 or $4.75. I would say these are very reasonable prices, especially for the quality. I only wish the owner would open up a new restaurant in SE Portland as we would go more often if it was closer.

Pros: Pizza, Pasta, Atmosphere

Cons: It's not close to our house.

My family and I have enjoyed Pizza Fino since they opened a couple years ago. The food is almost always fantastic (never bad), the atmosphere and service is unpretentious, but still attentive, and for a casual neighborhood restaurant they offer an awesome and ever changing list of wine, beer, and cocktails. We highly recommend Pizza Fino!
On a side note, I encourage anyone reading these reviews not to take the last one too seriously. I checked out her other reviews and it seems every business she visits treats her horribly...I wonder why?

My husband had to have some dental work done so he requested ??pasta and fries? because he couldn??t chew anything else. I called Pizza Fino because it was close to my house and ordered that and a house salad.
When I got there, I watched a rude waitress tell a women and her two friends they couldn??t eat at the bar but there was an open table with only two chairs. This obviously wouldn??t work for the woman unless one of her people sat on the floor.
When the cook was giving my order of Alfrado and fries to the waitress, he kept loudly making comments about the combination. It was pretty rude because he was being malice not funny.
My food took an additional 15 minutes to be ready (after waiting 25 minutes).
I got home and realized they forgot to put the vinergarette dressing on my damn salad. When I called, the woman didn??t offer to replace my salad. She said, ??well, I wish I could fix it, but we obviously don??t deliver.? I then asked if I could go pick up my salad.
I paid $27 for shi*** (city search won't let me use that word) service and two trips to get a freakin salad right.

It's a warm and cozy place to hang out. The service is excellent and happy hour prices are hard to beat. The new chef eally puts out some great food and I highly recommend it.

Try more than just the pizza. The seasonal salad had an amazing pomegranate vinaigrette with grilled pears, perfect! The pumpkin soup was great with a balance of flavors. The ravioli was a savory treat perfect for a cold November night. A wonderful combination of local flavors and Italian cuisine. I took my friend from Italy and she is still raving about it! Also, very reasonably priced. I would have paid twice as much in the Pearl for food not nearly as delicious.

Real pizza is just the beginning. Being somewhat spoiled by authentic Italian food, and disappointed by many attempts to find the "real" thing in Portland, I was thrilled to happen upon Pizza Fino. Not the covered in cheese and tasteless food you tend to find out here. This is all about the bouquet of spices and the marriage of the sauce. Keep it up. We'll be coming back for more!

We Went there last Friday night , they have a new chef and a new menu, the food is outstanding. We had the chicken and the Polenta and as an appetizer a Beet Salad with Figs and Lemon cucumbers , The chicken is one of the best dishes I ever had in a restaurant and the Polenta was creamy and with the perfect balance of the sauce, sausage and cheese. The Beet salad simply perfect.
The service was friendly but has some room for improvement, the server seems to not be familiar with the menu , but it was only their second night with the new menu . I strongly reccomend the place.

Went on a date for dinner, loved the atmosphere, lighting, and stained glass. Candles were a good touch also. We shared a small pizza and had a few delicious cocktails. We found the menu to be very appetizing. The prices are up there, but we thought it was well worth it. The waiter was great, really friendly, and made some good suggestions with our order. If you have kids and want them to color, take them to laurelhurst! We will definitely be back soon! My only advice is to get some better patio furniture!

Our first visit to Pizza Fino was a disappointment. We were seated right away, but waited almost an hour for our food. Not good since we were starving and had the kids with us. They don't even have any coloring for the kids. The party next to us was sitting there before us and got their food after us. The food was good, but not worth that wait. Plus, either the pasta portions are too small or the prices are too much. Don't expect to take left overs home. The wait staff was courteous, but not very attentive. I didn't eat the pizza, but there is no shortage of good pizza in Portland, so I wouldn't recommend making a special trip to this place.

This place has a great menu. The pizza has the tasty crust familiar to those who have been to Bella Faccia. The gnocchi is amazing, definitely my favorite dish, I'm salivating now thinking about it.

The reason I'm only giving it three stars is the pesto is really odd, and not in a good way. It's a gelatinous sauce with bits of dried basil in it. It doesn't taste disgusting but it doesn't have any garlic-y or basil taste to it either. The service is mostly friendly, but I went once at happy hour and felt like we weren't treated the same as when we usually go for dinner. We had drinks, so I don't know what the problem was. Overall, this is a safe bet for a tasty dinner. Go later if you want it to be romantic as it's quite popular with young families.

I've been 3 times now, and 2 out of the 3 times were absolutely wonderful. The first time was on our anniversary, I was surprised at how low the prices were, they are the same as The Olive Garden if not less. And then we were so happy and surprised at how absolutely delicious everything we ate were. My husband and I couldn't stop commenting how you could taste each and every ingredient in the dish and how they were all so great. The wait staff were friendly and warm and the bill was very reasonable for the amount of food and quality of food we received. The second time was for my husband's birthday dinner, and everything was just mediocre. The food didn't sing in my mouth the way it did before, and my husband's meat was so raw he gagged after the first bite, so we were diappointed. The service was just as great as the first time though, and they remade his meal. The third time was a fluke, we lost our reservations at a different restaurant on Valentine's day and decided to try our luck at Pizza Fino. They not only accomodated us very quickly but the food was as terrific if not better than the first time. Loved the polenta, the walnut salad, the bloody mary's, and ravioli. Server was friendly and excellent just like the other two times. We will be back for a fourth time for sure. With their low prices, I wished we lived back in Kenton so we could do take out or dine more often.

I moved to the kenton neighborhood a few months ago and evey time I go to pizza fino it's great! My wife and I went there last night with some friends for dinner and even though it took a while to get our food it was well worth the wait. Our waiter was helpful and friendly making excellent recomendations and talking at length with me about some favorite local brews. I had the penne with sausage for myself and my wife ordered a delicious pizza they call "pocket aces." By the time we finished our meal we were so full that we had to take the homemade dessert we couldn't resist orering wrapped to go. All in all it was a great experience!

When Pizza Fino first opened the food was amazing and we were very happy to have such a great local restaurant. We have eaten at there several times and each time the quality has declined. Tonight's meal has convinced us that we most likely won't return. The serving size has decreased, the food was flavorless, the salad dressing was tasteless and oily, and the pasta was not completely cooked. The environment is pleasant and the wait staff is friendly. Its ashame they could be consistent with the quality of food.

Yes, this restaurant serves delicious pizza, calzone and eggplant rollatini in a nice environment however, if I am to frequent this restaurant more often, they'll need to add a few healthier items to the mix?currently their salads are lack-luster and I have to add side dishes to get veggies with my entree?making a mid week meal a bit too expensive. I'm hoping they will add a few more items so I can go more often.

Our son attends UP, and after the soccer game last night we took him and a couple of his friends out for dinner. We wanted a nearby pizza place, and had read good things about this one. We were pleasantly surprised to find it was really more like an Italian bistro, than just a pizza joint. Pizza by the slice and a small bar out front, candlelight booths and tables in the back dining room. Very nice combo.

As for the food, the fried calamari was some of the better in town, rings and tentacles, all very tender and served with a lemon alioli. The Caesar salad was way too underdressed, but easily corrected with a side of dressing and make sure to order extrra anchovies as these are superior to any others I've had. Someone ordered the potato and leek soup and said it was also very good.

As for the pizza, it may be perhaps the very best pizza I've had. I know the rest of our group all agreed it was the best they've had. For those that are fans of Escape from NY pizza, you need to stop in here. Very similar pizza, with the addition of parking, a nice atmoshere, and excellent service. The Amnesia IPA on tap was the icing on a great dinner. With 18" pizzas under $20, it was very affordable as well. We also had the Chef stop by our table, a really nice guy and sets the casual tone for this place. He said everything is made from scratch, his Bolognese sauce being a classic example of taking 8 hours to make and using the tradtional beef, pork, and veal. It's also evident by the huge jars of assorted housemade pickled vegetables lining the shelf along one side of the dining room. He uses those vegetables as garnish for his sandwhiches. Who else does that these days?

Perhaps we will eventually get to the other dishes on the menu, as I'm sure they are very good. However, it will be very difficult to come here and not order the pizza. It's that good.

Without over selling this new Kenton restaurant, I will simply say that this is one of my favorite go-to places for dinner with friends. A great selection of Italian entrees, hand made pizza, sandwiches, salads, and desserts. The pizza and calzones rival those anywhere else in town, seriously. Nice servers, good atmosphere, overall a solid restaurant.

If only I lived in Kenton, I'd be at Pizza Fino several times a week! Everything I've ever had there has been exceptional. Best pizza in town, even beats Hot Lips, my former favorite. Perfect chewy, thin, tasty crust, never soggy or cardboard-esque. Yummy and creative sandwiches, pastas and other items ( fried zucchini, house-made ricotta, etc..). Lots of veggie/vegan options too! Nice drink menu, good wine & beer selection. Worth the trip across town, but I'd love to see more locations.

I live in NoPo and now consider myself so super lucky to have Pizza Fino so close. I am pizza stuck up, being from Long Island. My favorites in town are Escape and Hot Lips, but since Pizza Fino came - I can honestly say - they are right up there and might even surpass! That's hard for me to say too cuz I've been a loyal Escape fan for 12 years! Their dough is fabulous, even if it's sat in the pizza box for too long (pizza afficionados - you know what I mean). Perfect amount of sauce and cheese. Try it of you haven't. As far as price - pretty normal for good pie. I always feel it's worth it! Great service too - they love what they do and you can tell!

Perfect amount of sauce and cheese. Try it of you haven't. As far as price - pretty normal for good pie. I always feel it's worth it! Great service too - they love what they do and you can tell!

Pros: Amazing pizza

Cons: not a thing

I highly recommend the Pocket Aces pizza pie. Actually, I haven't had anything here I didn't like. I wish they'd bring back the brunch on the weekend...
The servers are fun and friendly. Drinks are good and they have patio seating. Kenton is rocking with new restaurants and this is one of my favorites. Try the calamari and a cosmo!

Aficionados of New York pizza, or those of the New Haven Sally's & Pepe's crowd will adore Pizza Fino. The crust is flavorful and well-cooked. Bubbling up and browned in places but not overdone. You can get a nice big slice or a whole pie. I recommend getting a whole pie and dining in so you can have the fresh out of the oven experience. Wide variety of toppings for those who want to design their own; as well as several in-house combos-- I recommend the BC Baby and the New Heaven. The pizza sauce is great, whether you get tomato based or olive-oil&garlic based. Great beer and wine list. Prices are fair for such a good quality pizza and experience. The person who complained about prices should go to Papa John's instead. This is not a fast food restaurant, it is an Italian food joint that does its job really well. I can't think of anything bad to say about this restaurant. The wait isn't too bad either unlike some of the hyped places that don't deserve a mention here. Good staff, good for kids, lots of choices, the non-pizza menu items are great as well. Kids will love the fried cheesy risotto b4lls and Mom and Dad will sneak one or two as well.

Pros: best pizza in Portland, good beverage list, good atmosphere

Cons: too far from my house

What more can you want in an Italian restaurant?

We've been there twice in the last 2 weeks already. Finally, great pizza by the slice in North Portland! We've also tried the meatball hoagie, lasagne and penne pasta which were all awesome. Good portions and even better as left overs!

The service was good and my kids were welcomed; although there is no childrens menu, which was a down side. The servers were very friendly and prompt.

The only critique I have is that the ceasar salad was room temperature and quite salty. Not a good combination! They could definately improve the entire salad offerings in general, I agree there should have been dressing selections.

I brought a slice of the tiramisu home and it was delicious. A little on the dry side, but great flavor! I also think the portion size was a little small for the price, $5.

My son looks forward to his next BBall game so we can go get a slice afterwards, high praise from a fairly picky 8 year old!

We will definately be back!

got a pie to go last week after reading about the place in one of the local rags 'cheap eats' section. the pizza was one of the best thin crust pies i've had in quite a while, but it was priced more like a gourmet pizza than what i would consider cheap eats, at almost $25 for three toppings. i was going to get a salad, but they only have them with a tossed vinagarette, no dressing selection.

i'd recommend them for their pizza, but be prepared to pay for it.

Went here for the first time on a Thursday night. Place was 3/4 full. They have a menu filled with options between pizzas, sandwiches, and pasta dishes. Also they have an interesting cocktail menu with a good selection of beers and wines. I had the Fino Roll ( a mini pizza rolled up to a roll and then baked). It was very tasty. Only complaint was that the service was a bit slow and waitress brought out bill without asking if I wanted anything else. Would go there again.
