Run by a midfielder on Portland’s Major League Soccer team, the Timbers, Zizzo’s FC in the SW 10th and Alder pod has tasty on the go italian food, mostly sandwiches. We got the caprese sandwich, as the only meat I eat is chicken and oh my goodness.
Honestly, hands down the best caprese sandwich i’ve ever eaten. there was a light balsamic vinegar and an incredible olive oil (probably extra extra virgin) and the mozzarella was soo fresh. it melted in your mouth, and i’m not even much of a sandwich person.
SO GOOD! i didn’t get a cannoli at the time, but i soon will as they’re my favorite italian pastry and I heard Zizzo’s makes a good one.
go there!!… well if you can.. as the downside is, I find that often they don’t really follow their posted hours. i just got lucky that they happened to be open this one time I was in the area. maybe check their website online to find out if they’re open.
