The hidden gem of the Willamette Valley! A pure Italian restaurant where homemade grandmother recipes regain their importance in a modern presentation.Dario & Sheena greet you at the door and make your visit unforgettable with a wine country memory that will last forever. The Italian wine tasting room open from 11am and Sunday homemade pizzas & gnocchi till 8pm complete your experience at Agrivino.
We were heading from the coast to Forest Grove and we were looking for a place to eat a late lunch/early dinner before our flight home. As we neared Forest Grove we were running out of options. Tripadviser lead us to this quaint restaurant.
The GPS sent us on dirt roads....and my husband was getting frustrated. Finally we decided we must be heading to a vineyard, which could be problematic since we do not drink alcohol. We continued on, and ultimately arrived at AgriVino, which is in the middle of farmland. The fall colors on the grapevines in the rolling hills is spectacular. The hills are ablaze in golds. If only the restaurant's windows faced the beauty of the area, instead of the parking lot.
On entering Agrivino we thought we were in a wine tasting room. There are a small number of tables in the center of the room, a wine tasting bar at one end, and wine bottles along a side wall. The restaurant is quite unique, and very relaxing. We were asked about reservations and we advised we were driving through the area looking for a quick bite to eat before dropping our daughter off at college and heading to the airport. We were told the tables were all booked, but since we were early, and only looking for a quick bite to eat, they could accommodate us before the tables filled.
It was Pizza and Gnocchi night. We enjoyed their l pizza of the day, a special cheese and salami, along with a pizza with prosciutto and asparagus. We ordered a bolognese gnocchi. While the friendly waitress recommended three dishes, in actuality one pizza and the gnocchi would have been enough. The gnocchi serving isn't large but it was enough for each of us to have a small portion. I don't usually like gnocchi, but I loved Dario's gnocchi. The pizza tasted just like in Italy. The crust was light and the tomato sauce wasn't overpowering. My daughter ended up taking home the left over pizza.
We were just about to pay the bill when Dario came over and I mentioned I felt like I had made a quick trip to Italy and the food was so good. He mentioned the wine in Italy and we advised we don't drink, instead we love to eat homemade Gelato. We learned they have a contract with a gelato maker and they recommended the Black Forest Gelato, triple chocolate and cherries. Oh my goodness it was heaven. My husband enjoyed Nutella gelato, and he said it was as good as our favorite gelato in Rome.
My husband was so glad he continued on the dirt road. We really felt as though we spent an hour in Italy. It was pure heaven.

The baked goods here are wonderful. We had excellent shortbread cookies, macarons, and a variety of pastries perfect for breakfast the next morning, but my favorite purchase here was the walnut-raisin bread. A true OMG kind of bread for worshippers of great loaves. In fact, I brought a loaf home--I think I'll go make some toast right now!

I am a little biased because I get coffee here a lot. I appreciate how the house drip Coffee is old school tasty. Not burnt or "fruity", it has a nice nuttiness that many will appreciate and pairs well with cream and honey. Mmmm.
The Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie is just like a Toll House. Best G-Free cookie I ever met. I get them too often as they are "regular" with gluten tasty.

We were quickly seated and greeted by our server. Allergy infomation was clear and the server was well informed. Fair sized portions for cost. Order several plates to share! My son and his friend love the churros with chocolate dipping sauce.

They have kids size for only two dollars versus some places that charge four! Great service and very historic atmosphere feels like you went back a 100 years in time!

One block off of Highway 47
Went to Yamhill as they had advertised their farmers market! 4 stalls and an ice cream truck does not make a farmers market, so we meandered through the antique shop before hitting Trask for an early lunch. I went with the Panini Melt - Turkey, bacon, tomato, and Swiss cheese on focaccia bread. The tomato and bacon had been cooked together before they went in sandwich, and then the focaccia was toasted on the griddle - yes! A 3 napkin sandwich! The fries were average, but the sandwich more than made up for it. Good local Pinot Gris went really well with it. My navigator and better half had the small Asian Salad, which was good but over dressed, however, the Angry Orchard draft cider helped make up for it.
A real local spot and there were farmers discussing crops, including grapes, on tables near us. If you eat outside there is a nice view down the road to western hills.

Offering North West wines, artisan cheeses, cured meats, olives, small bites, sandwiches, chocolates, bread and more...for here or to go. Live Music on Friday and Saturday night!
Four of us stopped by the Horse Radish based upon a recommendation from our B&B. We were not disappointed with our choice of the lunch special. As a matter of fact we enjoyed the butternut squash/apple soup so much, my wife made that same recipe upon our return home. Two of us had the corned beef sandwich which was delicious and brought back fond memories of New York. Coffee was excellent and not scalding as many restaurants serve their coffee too hot. The washrooms were clean and well maintained. Excellent choice for lunch and we would return.

Nice little shop tucked away in a wine tasting room. Stopped in on a Monday, so there weren't any samples available and had to use a credit card. Good selection of salted caramels and some chili peanut butter cups.

Community Plate is a nice place for lunch in quaint "downtown" McMinnville. The counter-service restaurant has a nice selection of draft beers and a moderately sized menu of breakfast and lunch items. I enjoyed the Oregon tuna melt sandwich which was good but not spectacular. I also had a chance to try the grilled cheeses sandwich with bacon and fresh jalapeno, which was very good. The pricing is a little on the high side, $12-14 for sandwiches.

I wasn't very happy with the service or the coffee - I don't like giving bad reviews - I am just being honest - I prefer going to the bakery or coffee company down the road
