Eugene, Oregon is home to the Excelsior Bed and Breakfast Inn and Ristorante Italiano.  Excelsior’s Ristorante Italiano, which is a proud member of the Slow Food Movement, is a restaurant dedicated to providing the highest quality of food and service for its guests. Guests at this exceptional restaurant can enjoy authentic Italian cuisine in the casual yet elegant Bistro, or in the formal Dining Room.  Weather permitting, the courtyard also provides a lush, aromatic atmosphere for additional dining.  Our on-site bakery provides the restaurant with handmade pastas and breads, as well as award-winning desserts highlighting the bounty of each season in Willamette Valley.  Eggs and produce are brought in daily from the nearby Excelsior Farm, guaranteeing the freshest selection of ingredients found in the Willamette Valley.  We work closely with local butchers and organic farms to ensure the highest quality product goes into each dish.

We also feature live music on most Friday and Saturday nights.  On Friday we feature Gypsy Moon, an exciting latin-tinged duo with guitarist Priyo Notaro and percussionist Luis Chicas-Cruz.  On Saturdays we host a rotating cast of local acts.  Please check the music schedule below.
