The food was absolutely some of the best Italian I have had anywhere. We had two different entrees and a salad and it was plenty of food. The bread and olive oil was delicious as well. However, what was missing was the great service. It...More

Its time for my annual review of Ports of Italy with many excellent dinners in between. This place has always been a mystery to me. How did a classic Italian restaurant worthy of Central Park South ever find its way to the coast of Maine?...More

Stopped in for a quick dinner - the Chicken Fettuccine was really good as was the asparagus ... the bread was just average. The service was good but not friendly.

We had heard this was a terrific restaurant and were not disappointed. The owner himself worked there and took great care of us. I had the pasta Bolognese which was delicious. I will say our waiter was not terribly friendly but was efficient.

The overall experience is amazing. The Pasta I ate was the best pasta I have had in my life. Our server, Florin, was very good and was extremely helpful in many ways. We will likely be coming back in our next trip to these parts.

Great Italian restaurant with an assortment to choose from on the menu. Definitely somewhere to visit when staying in Boothbay! Dress is casual to more contemporary. Highly advise making a reservation as this place is always packed!
