“Great Authentic Italian Cuisine!”

Ports of Italy is one of my favorite restaurants in Boothbay Harbor. The food is always consistently excellent & the prices are reasonable. Definitely a "must try" when eating out in Boothbay Harbor!

“A nice change of pace in Boothbay Harbor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2011

This restaurant is excellent and stands out in Boothbay Harbor. We go there several times everytime we go to Boothbay, which is every summer. Everything is just expertly prepared, european style, original and very pleasant to the eye. The owner knows his stuff and really aims to please the customers. However, the servings, especially the pasta, are on the small side - if you are a hearty eater, appetizers will be required - and it is on the pricey side. That said, we love the place - so do our kids - and warmly recommend it.

Great Menu. Slow service but we didn't have any where else to go and enjoyed the great weather out on the deck all evening.

“filet mignon ravioli”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2011

I agree with another reviewer, the filet mignon ravioli was disappointing.

(A local recommended Ports of Italy, and Boathouse Bistro. I chose Ports of Italy because I stumbled upon their back parking lot.)
