Renata is a super popular Eastside Italian restaurant that serves handmade pasta and wood-fired pizza, and has an extensive wine list. If you come with a group, definitely make a reservation and try to sit outside on the patio where you can drink an Aperol spritz and be reminded of how nice Portland is when it’s sunny out. If you’re eating solo or you’re there during a colder month, head to the bar instead. You can still order a few different pizzas, along with cacio e pepe and spaghetti bolognese.
