We came up from Boston for a quick overnight. Since we have plenty of seafood choices there we opted for something different. We arrived at the restaurant on a busy Saturday night and were told it was a 45 minute wait so we went to the bar. The bartender, Melissa, was amazing! I have never seen such a busy, hardworking,...

Easy to find and good parking to the rear of the building. Much like an old-fashioned Italian restaurant in the Northeast. Fantastic aroma of garlic greeted us just outside the entry door so we knew we were in for some authentic delicious Italian food. Greeted immediately and shown to a corner table for two. Low lights, combined with mellow vocalists... More

We arrived in a blinding rain on an August evening. The greeting was warm and we were seated immediately even though the place was packed. There was a nice wine list plus a detailed menu with a great variety of Italian dishes. After weeks of seafood, it was a great time for a pasta pig-out. Service was really good given... More

I thought the food was excellent. I didn't like the fact the restaurant was packed. The noise level was high and the tables were close together. We had a reservation and still had to wait 20 mins for our table. Overall, the wait staff was attententive and the food was freshly prepared. I would recommend.

Food may be pricey but it was attractively presented and very good. I can only comment on the lamb shanks that were a special that evening and it was delicious. Restaurant is up a steep set of stairs but being on the upper level gives you a view to the water over the town dock area. It did get noisy... More

my wife and I dined twice at Ports during our vacation in Boothbay last summer, and loved it on each visit. So we returned for dinner tonite and once again enjoyed a fabulous meal. Our server, Evelyn was very pleasant and offered explanations for several items in the menu. We recognized many of the same faces on staff from last... More

The food is always amazing and service is exceptional, especially Josh! He remembers what I like even if he hasn't waited on us in months! I've never had anything I didn't like.
