As happened in 2010 and 2011, Nostrana wins by a large majority for Portland’s Best Italian Food. The separation between the second group is pretty close, so I listed a few. Last year Genoa was 2nd, so Tabla has moved up. 732 votes were cast. I think that the big disparity in price played a big part between Italia and Genoa, the latter being more expensive so less people are likely to have gone there. Italia has come up in votes significantly from last year.
Updated 6.5. I just realized that some people put votes as “Mingo” and some for “Cafe Mingo”. I try to weed all these out when I build the pivot table, but didn’t notice my error until it this morning. I’ve readjusted the results to reflect the change.
By request, my favorites are Tabla and Nostrana, in that order. You can see all our 2012 Reader Survey awards here.
