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

This is our favorite restaurant in Boothbay Harbor and among the top five anywhere else. Over the last few years we've eaten here on every visit and have never been disappointed. Be sure to try the offered (no charge) bruschetta. It's terrific. The service is friendly, efficient and never intrusive. We'll be back again and again.

We were here on one of the last days of the season. The service was great. The waiters and bartenders were exceptional. They all liked to serve and were genuinely engaged with their patrons. I personally heard the bartender at the bar engaging those who were looking for conversation and/or help with the menu. The food was impressive. I had... More

Truthfully, this restaurant exceeded our expectations. For some reason, we didn't expect such good food in a crowded resort area. Everything was well prepared and tasty. We has eggplant rollitini for an appetizer and pasta bollonaise for dinner. Prices were just north of average, but worth it. I suggest reservations. It was crowded the night we went and I'm glad...

Food quite good. Service OK (except very annoyingly our server seemed to think it was OK to stand next to our table and endlessly try to engage in conversation with my wife who was too nice to object). But over-priced - they must think they're Boston North End quality, and they're surely not that, so the value equation is not... More
