Artigiano Pastawagon serves up a real taste of Italy out of their red truck and patio here in Portland, Oregon. If you're looking for a fresh, handmade, farm-to-table experience unlike anything else you'll find, this is the place. The Pastawagon is open for dinner Thursdays through Saturdays from May to October, and the chef stays busy in the offseason. She's continually returning to Italy to source the best ingredients, recipes, and techniques to bring back to her lucky customers in the Pacific Northwest. The family-style restaurant serves up multi-course meals tailored to your tastes in a calm and authentic atmosphere.
With wines, desserts, and multiple prixe fixe-type options available to choose from, you are sure to be transported halfway around the world whenever you are lucky enough to get a table here. If it's booked up, as it often is, don't worry—there's a to-go menu as well for those of us who can't wait or have to run back to work. A few times a month, you can also attend special events focused on the wines and cuisines of specific regions within Italy, providing a true Italian experience. It's perfect for those who are looking for a special date night, or just a fun evening out in Portland's summer weather.
