A true fine dining experience. The food, the view, the service - all were excellent. Everything from appetizer to dessert was delicious and prepared as fine dining should be. We would definitely return and recommend to our friends.

Superb! Reservations are a must as it is a tiny restaurant. Everything was SO delicious! We had the fresh blueberry mojito to begin our wonderful meal and everyone ordered something different. This was one of the best meals I've eaten in my life, and I have eaten many meals all over the country. Highly recommend this restaurant if you love... More

My wife and I visited Aragosta on a Saturday night in August. We were warmly welcomed by the hostess and seated for our reservation within a minute of arriving. We ordered a bottle of Chardonnay which was lovely. I had a fabulous farmers salad which had a combo of beets and goat cheese, everything tasted so fresh. My wife started... More

Let me start by saying that 2 years ago, also in the summer, we had a wonderful meal here, with zero complaints. Let me add to that that I am a 20 year veteran of the restaurant business and instead of being hypercritical because of that I am actually very forgiving and usually enjoy very much great food and service....

I do hope you will dine with us again in the future as your experience is not a true reflection of who we are as a team. Thanks again, management. More

I have eaten at this restaurant at least three times since May. I have never had a bad meal and I love the location, but every time I have gone the experience has been marred by the place being short staffed.

On our trip to Stonington we stopped at Aragosta for lunch and were so glad we found this little gem! We sat outside on a gorgeous August day and enjoyed a delectable lunch.

Best greens ever in the salad. Seriously the best, most flavorful. The only way to improve the salad would be to tear them into smaller pieces. The lobster ravioli was a perfect entree to share after a busy day. Nice wines as well. Will be back next year and hopefully be able to enjoy the deck.

Description
Aragosta, meaning "lobster" in Italian, is presented by Chef Devin Finigan of Brooklin. Her farm-to-table cuisine features only the freshest and best quality meat, seafood and produce from local purveyors. Her love of Mediterranean and Italian cooking and the Maine coast come together for a beautiful menu of delicious food that is simply good. Guests will enjoy dishes like Chef Devin's specialty, butter-poached lobster ravioli, while overlooking the breathtaking views of Stonington Harbor. The kind, knowledgable staff will guide guests through the menu and thoughtful wine list to create a memorable dining experience. Join us for lunch on our beautiful deck as well, where Chef Devin has created a menu that puts an elegant twist on classic pub fare.
