What People are Saying

Caffe Mingo serves delicious food! 

My husband and I were looking for Italian food, and were recommended to this place, we were so glad to have been able to try it! They have an amazing soup and pasta creation, to die for! Servers are so friendly, vibes are so hip and classy.

PRISCYLA

Always stellar.

Italian comfort food surpassing most all other eateries (world-wide – not just in Portland, OR!) in excellence (taste, execution, fresh ingredients). Caffe Mingo’s sister restaurant and bar (Bar Mingo) is also about as great as it gets. A+ for both.

CEIL

A warm, intimate, and aesthetically pleasing setting and a perfect meal… 

I was doted on by a gentleman whom I suspected to be the owner and looked after as if I were a beloved aunt visiting from out of town. I forgot to ask about the drawings and art, had a plane to catch, wishing I could have lingered there for hours more. 

MAXINE

Excellent food and wine! 

Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We had a party of 6 and they sat us at the marble round table, we had a great view of the chef and his calm smooth style. The whole experience and every dish was a success!
