This charming European-style restaurant features Italian-inspired cuisine by chef and owner Maurizio Paparo. Diners enjoy the bounty of the Willamette Valley with signature dishes like homemade lobster ravioli, or hand-cut steaks, local seafood, and pasta from the in-house artisan pasta shop. Pair one of the wines from the extensive wine list with an incredibly decadent dessert, also made in-house. Inquire with the Excelsior regarding monthly Regional Dinners in which guests are taken on a culinary tour of one Italian region via a traditional four-course dinner including wine pairings hosted by Maurizio. Excelsior’s five-acre farm provides most of the produce for the restaurant.
