Once of the few places in Portland which takes great pride in their food and service. Contrary to the ""Rude"" review below, I find the owner and staff to be very friendly and welcoming. This is a family run business and it shows.

I've lived in Little-Italy in Toronto for most of my life, and cooked professionally there for 11 years. I can safely say that this is the real Italian food prepared with a great deal of pride, as it should be. Italians love food, and this place truly shows you just how much they do. They make their own bread too and it's fresh! I feel that the bakery scene in Portland is dismal at best. This is the only bakery I shop at in Portland. I would not put anything less on my own table for my family at home.

Food: FRESH, incredibly tasty, and reasonably priced! The portions are just right. (This is something else Portland restaurants seem to not understand very well: Portion Control. Enormous quantity is not better quality or value, just a drain on the profit margin when it walks out in a doggie-bag). Everything here come out presentable, aromatic, and with a proud smile. I cannot stress how important this is for any restaurant wanting to retain their customer base.

There is nothing on their menu which I would hesitate ordering, from pasta to bread to dessert. They also have a beautiful garden in the back.

Conclusion: In my opinion, Dip Rima has no serious competition in this town for truly authentic Italian cooking. They will do very well here in the years to come.

I've only been there once but the food was delicious! My friend and I both ordered their spinach pie type thing... It was great. We got our order to go but we can't wait to go back and dine in...cool environment and watching the staff and owner at work was entertaining too.

How about zero stars? I had heard good things about this place, but my experience with the staff is that they are rude and snobby. There are too many good bakeries in town for me to do business with a rude, stuck up staff.

I hadn't had real canoli since I left NY 15 years ago... I'm so glad I moved to the neighborhood recently. Friendly service. I've been so taken with the canoli, I haven't tried anything else yet

A little taste of Europe , well more specifically Italy , in Portland. I heard about this bakery , on this website and had to check it out for myself. The staff , especially the owner is friendly and boisterous and the whole atmosphere is very warm and inviting. The pastries are a bit more pricey than the ones found in local supermarkets but are very much worth the price.

Located just off the Max line in North Portland, DiPrima Dolce has been making a name for itself as the purveyor of the finest cannoli in the city. The baked goods are traditional and run the gamut from chocolate-hazelnut crocantini to fresh Italian bread. The atmosphere is pleasant with the head baker routinely and loudly greeting return-customers. Good for non-traditional Sunday morning brunch.

PROS: lots of traditional Italian stuff
CONS: some non-Italian
