Nicoletta’s Table and Marketplace

With a deep love and appreciation for Italian food and lifestyle, owners Alan and Shari Newman knew they want to bring that back to Portland. With the help and influence of their friendship with Beppe and Nicoletta Tortti from Cortona, Italy, the couple was able to open their own their very own Trattoria - or small neighborhood marketplace in Lake Oswego. Enjoy their exquisite food and wine using the flavors of Tuscany.

Chuckies Pies

The same owners of beloved Lake Oswego coffee shop Chuck’s Place founded Chuckie Pies in 2013 as their way to bring New York and Neapolitan pizza to the LO community. Lisa Shaw, co-owner, studied the technique of making authentic Neapolitan pizza dough, then developed the menu using high quality seasonal and traditional ingredients. Lisa and Chuck Shaw-Ryan have lived in Lake Oswego for over 2 years and are actively involved in the community. Their beautiful pizza restaurant is located in the heart of downtown Lake Oswego, and not only they serve delicious pizzas, but hearty appetizers, unique drinks, and an amazing affogato!
