Although the interior might need a make over, do not hesitate to have your Italian dinner here. The staff is very kind and informative and the wine accompanied our dinner was very tasteful. We both had a nice starter and the pasta with seafood and lobster stuffed ravioli were delicious!!!!! You will like it!!!!!

We've dined in Italy, and Ports of Italy could easily be transported, in one piece, from Maine's midcoast right to Italy. The staff was extremely friendly and worked as a team to provide what we thought was awesome, attentive service. The wine list is very good and the food was several cuts above the usual fare in "Italian" restaurants in... More

Ports of Italy isn't fancy or snobby -- it's just excellent Italian food and service and likely one of the best restaurants in mid-coast Maine. Last evening we had Risotto with White Truffles and it was one of the best dishes we've had outside of Italy. Fresh white truffles, a delicacy only available in the fall, combined with perfectly-cooked risotto... More

We had one of the best meals ever at this restaurant. While the decor was decidedly casual the meal was worthy of a fine restaurant. I highly recommend Ports of Italy.

This place is awesome. Not just best of Boothbay Harbor, best of Maine. Sante the owner is welcoming, friendly and engaging. Tony our waiter was great as usual. He is attentive, knowledgeable and thoroughly knows the menu and wine list so his suggestions are right on point.

This restaurant exceeded my every expectation! The food and service are top notch and the price is reasonable for dining of this caliber. It is fine dining in a relaxed atmosphere and the food makes you wish you could take the chef home. This is a must during your stay at Boothbay.

After eating lobster at every meal for days, we were ready for a change of pace. Ordinarily, we would not have picked Italian, but the reviews changed our mind. It is cozy Italian, not ultra fancy (a very good thing) and everyone is warm and welcoming (another very good thing). Our server, Evelyn, was literally perfect on all counts and... More

We weren't expecting a great dining experience in a tourist town, but Ports of Italy blew us away. We were prepared to order two pastas and two entrees, but our server advised us against it, suggesting instead that we get an appetizer and then split one pasta and one entree. He was right - the portions were plentiful. We had... More
