The seafood dishes here are always excellent as are all pasta dishes. Service is very good, even when restaurant is busy which often,especially in the summer months. Restaurant also has an excellent wine list.

We had a lovely meal with each of us choosing a different entree. The presentation of each serving was very interesting, and every person was delighted with the flavor, portion size, and temperature.

Probably our best meal in Maine and we had several excellent ones. Everything was great from the bread and olive oil through the coffee. Friendly wait staff and owner. Don't pass it by.

The Christmas dinner included one appetizer, a first course, a second course and then dessert. The appetizer I had was eggplant filled with ricotta cheese with tomato sauce over it and... More

What a treat. We loved our delicious four course prix fixe meal. Great choices for three of the courses, excellent service, delicious and well prepared food. One course had a single selection, spinach ravioli, and was fantastic. Make reservations well in advance. You won't want to miss eating there.

We had a very nice dinner on a cold, rainy blustery night. The owner seated us on his heated outdoor deck which turned out to be very comfortable. They brought bread, herbed oil, and 2 small appetisers as we ordered. The meals were well prepared, thoughtfully presented and tasty. We opted out of desert, although they looked great. Service was... More

We had dinner here before heading to the Botanical Gardens for the Christmas light show. Luckily we went early because they were busy. All the pasta is homemade. The meal was excellent.

Returned to this restaurant for another wonderful dinner. Our server Josh was friendly and did a great job describing the specials. He was attentive to our every need. The food is fresh, beautifully plated and delicious. The mussels are to die for. My husband had the haddock special. You can always tell fresh fish and it was fantastic. My filet... More
