I hear ads on the radio for the "Canzano calzone" at Caro Amico on Barbur Blvd.

We actually went there, and I was wholly disappointed. They had only two options for calzones?!?! I found that odd for a place that has a giant "CALZONES" banner flying from it's patio.

Actually... you have to drive a bit, but try to hit up Nonna Emilia's out in Aloha. It's just off of a frontage road along TV (err, "Tualatin Valley") highway, just past SW 170th.

Default You shoulda been here when.......

Its been years and I don't know if Nicolas is still open on Powell. They have/had a great calzone. My first ever Carbonara, at the Monte Carlo years ago on Belmont amazing. I was instantly hooked. Looked like a scene out of good fellas at lunch time....... Long gone, but the real deal..

Pizza Oasis on Burnside and SW 22nd has a decent "calzone" (sauce on the inside). A good price and a good pie too - but PDX is seriously lacking in deep dish and calzones. A Mellow Mushroom just opened in the Pearl on SW14th and Flanders. It's a chain from the SE US but it's pretty decent and I like their calzones too. Welcome to a pizza wasteland. Anytime I fly through ORD or stay in the midwest I make sure to pick up some deep dish to help me remember what good pizza tastes like. There is mainly NY style here & the end-all be-all is apparently Apizza Scholls but IMO it's overpriced and always busy with Yelpers & ppl that saw it on the Travel Channel.

/I'd love to open a Jet's franchise here - so dang good.

Two options? There exist places that won't let you put whatever toppings you want inside a calzone? I'm confused...are theirs pre-made and frozen or something?

That would be DeNicolas and yes they are still there although I haven't been in ages.

I too remember the Monte Carlo. I sure miss that place.

They're actually kind of a PITA to make and take about three times longer then a regular pizza. The pizza place I used to work at did them. We'd make them ahead of time and freeze them. So we insisted on no substitutes otherwise you wouldn't get it for at least 30 minutes.
