A Taste of Tuscany in the Pearl

New restaurant brings the flavor and feel of a small Italian neighborhood trattoria to Portland.

Located in the former space of Bellino Tratorria Siciliana, Nicoletta+Beppe’s (1230 NW Hoyt Street, 503-208-2992) is now open in the Pearl District. The neighborhood trattoria, much like one found on any street corner in Italy, is inspired by the Torriti family of Cortona.

Giuseppe (Beppe) and Nicoletta Torriti are family friends whose love of exceptional Tuscan food and wine, gathering around a table to fully experience a meal, and their close friendship drew Nicoletta’s Table (Lake Oswego) owners, Alan and Shari Newman, to create this special space in the Pearl.

Nicoletta+Beppe’s is a modern twist on traditional Italian food and atmosphere and their mission is to provide the freshest ingredients the Pacific Northwest offers in their delicious homemade pizzas, pasta, and bread. The trattoria also serves a large selection of Italian wines from all regions, unique craft cocktails, and local and Italian beers.

Led by Executive Chef Victor Lopez, and Chef de Cuisine Michael Barefoot, Nicoletta + Beppe’s creates a casual, yet elegant dining experience where meals are prepared with passion and served with flair.

Hours are 11am-10pm Tuesday – Saturday, and Sunday from 4pm-9pm.
