Very good food overall. Salads are excellent as are the meatballs, sausage, and beef. Pasta is cooked the way I like it, not overcooked. I like a long simmered sauce. The sauce here is more of the fresh tomato, garlic, basil variety. Your taste may be different but the sauce defines the experience... read more

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this amazing restaurant last weekend. We started with a specialty martini which went down too easy and calamari appetizer before moving on to a Porterhouse steak for two, which exceeded our expectations. It was cooked and seasoned perfectly and melted in our mouths. Way better than any chain restaurant steak we've ever been too.... More

A little pretentious on the wine side but overall a good find with a good range of food options and an extensive wine list

went here based on other TA recommendations, and we weren't disappointed. the food was fantastic, and we sat on the porch, listened to live music that was part of a festival going on in town, and sat out front and watched the fireworks. a really magical evening

Had a business meeting with colleagues, and we were treated very well -- with attentive service, a private dining room, and we weren't rushed at all. I'd like to go back for a personal meal, and would recommend it to anyone. Beautiful interior, great bar, and very good food.

A nice italian restaurant with good cocktails and food. I felt it was a little pricey for the area, but the portions were sizeable and their Tiramisu is exceptional. There's a nice ball court (Bocce ball?) in front where the kids can play.

The chef here is excellent-- seafood and accompaniments were skilfully prepared and well presented, with good wine. Sauces were modified to suit our dietary requirements, an important task that only a skilled chef can do well.

Typically Western Maine and fine dining aren't used in the same sentence, but when you visit 22 Broad Street those words are appropriate. Our wonderful evening started off with martinis at the bar. Though they have an extensive selection of cocktails all of us opted for the 22 Martini which features Maine made 22 vodka. After enjoying our cocktails and... More
