It's hard to find good places in Boothbay Harbor that are opened late. We enjoyed our lovely italian meal while sitting outside at Ports of Italy. The wine list is excellent, as well as, the pastas and appetizers. The service was excellent and the meal great. We'll eat here again next August when we return to Boothbay.

We were in Boothbay Harbor for a wedding last weekend and had a fabulous dinner at this restaurant on a busy Friday night. We were seated inside (reservations recommended) vs. the outside deck, which was fine, as it was a cool night and it was quieter inside. From start to finish, the food was excellent and not your usual Italian.... More

Everything we had was awesome! We shared a delicious salad and ordered the pasta special dish of the day--it was fantastic. We sat on the porch and our service was very good.. we ate here twice as we knew it would be good. Make a reservation ...they are busy busy during the summer months.

The lobster and risotto was pricey and not very good. Should have stayed with Italian food.asfasdfasdfasdfasdfasfasf

We were told it would be tough to get a table since this is one of the best dining spots in Boothbay Harbor. We basically begged for a table and they squeezed us in at 6:15 pm on a Thursday night. Outstanding menu with many options. I had a great lobster ravioli. Wine list is good and the bread they... More

We made advance reservations for the night of our 40th wedding anniversary at this northern Italian restaurant and were seated in a booth by the maitre d cum owner. I was surprised how large this 2nd floor restaurant was since it appears much smaller when viewed from the street. We requested glasses of Ramsey cabernet while we read the menu.... More

Recently visited Boothbay Harbor and by chance ended up dining at Port of Italy restaurant. My family and I had a wonderful meal with great food, wine and very good service. We didn't have a reservation, but Jeff the manager, worked his magic and was able to find us a nice table even on a busy night. We could not... More

On our first visit (last year) Ports of Italy was excellent - and it did not disappoint on this visit a year later. I'd reserved through Open Table and asked for a harbor view if possible; we were seated on a deck that had a clear covering from the railing to the floor, blocking the cool ocean breeze but not...

We stopped in to Port of Italy by chance. The steep dark steps were curious and the small tight seating area on the deck was cozy but busy and noisy. The staff was attentive and prompt to begin with but then hard to locate after the meal was served. The food really was excellent and guess that's what we truly... More
