Porto Terra (in PDX)

Monday, June 25, 2012

A few weeks ago Luke & I went out to Porto Terra for a date night. A little while back, our realtor gave us a Passport Dinning card & with your card membership you get a free second entree at a lot of restaurants in town! When we go out for date nights, we try & go to places on the passport dining list, because we're all about saving money!! :)

Porto Terra is a Tuscan Bar & Grill, in downtown Portland. It was our first time dining here & it certainly wont be our last. This place was like the definition of Italian comfort food (photos below to prove it). With such a warm & cozy environment, it was easy to get lost in a glass of wine & a delicious pasta dish. At one point during dinner I told Luke that my meal reminded me of snuggling up with a blanket in front of a warm fireplace. Serious, it was just that good.
