Portland locals like their dining the way they like their lifestyle: comfortable, unpretentious and high quality. Castagna delivers on all three counts. The décor in the restaurant is understated and neat, leaving diners free to focus their attention on the exquisite food. The dishes originate from classic French and Italian cuisine, but also highlight ingredients particular to the Northeast region. Expect to see local seafood and several varieties of mushroom sprinkled throughout the rotating menu, which includes such delectable offerings as Grilled Cattail Creek Lamb or Muscovy Duck Legs. For a slightly more casual meal, they also have an informal café next door that offers equally delightful fare.
