This Division Street Italian restaurant mills their own flour on-site for their five daily pastas, has one of the longest wine lists in Portland, and has all the plants and hanging lights you could want for a dinner where you plan on staring into someone’s eyes for long periods of time. Though if you want to have a really big night and try even more of the menu, go for the family-style option, which includes a customized menu for $79 per person.
