Where is the love for Macuucis in portland??
I was in the Portland area for the past few weeks and did alot of visits to breweries, bakeries and quick service meals. I tried many of the well mentioned one one the boards and was very pleased. While visiting Two Fat Cats i decided to drop in to Macuccis to have a look around. Best thing I did! The pizza in the back that everyone is waiting in line about 20 minutes for is awesome! I am surprised to not hear more talk of it on chowhound. I have a feeling people are trying to keep this secret to themselves as to not increase the wait time in line. 1 "slab" square (good for 2 children or 1 adult ) goes for about $4.50. also they make incredible rolls that when they come out hot you need to sprinkle the parm cheese on that they leave on the counter and you have a great snack! Sorry folks the secret is out!

You must mean Muccis. Muccis has been in Portland for a hundred years. Anyone in the now knows to shop there for pasta, cheeses, olives, wine, inported tomatoes. etc, etc....
Try shopping on a Saturday morning- it is packed. The pizza and cannolis that Stephen Lanzalotta bakes are wonderful. He has been there for about a year after closing his own shop. Everyone already knows. Sorry but nice try.
Trying to drive home with a luna bread from there without ripping it apart and eating it before you get there is nearly impossible. Everything back there is good and it's def not a secret.
It's one of the few things I do miss about not being in portland. I always loved heading over there.
I do hate to say as well though, that pretty much everyone around there knows about that place.
