Food with soul is an experience.

Ten years in the making, Magna Restaurant is the embodiment of Chef Carlo’s commitment to sharing the memories, ingredients and culture of the Philippines and of his family.

“To those more familiar with Filipino food, we hope we can spark a memory, a connection to what we do & what you are used to. To the newcomers, we hope you enjoy and come back for more.”

Drawing from his extensive collection of memories making Filipino food with his family in the US and in the Philippines, his classic training at the Culinary Institute of America and his many years leading kitchens including his lauded Twisted Filipino popup dinners, Chef Carlo Lamagna and the Magna team tell stories with Filipino food.

For our premiere menu, Magna invites diners to taste the essentials of Filipino cuisine, reworked Chef Carlo style. These foundational dishes are anything but “basic.”


Magna’s long-awaited opening has gathered lots of attention. We hope you visit Magna Restaurant to see what PBS Food, Eater Portland, Travel Portland and Vice Munchies are all raving about.
