We went on a week night for dinner. The hostess was so welcoming and friendly and gave us all of the information on the nightly specials. The restaurant was mostly empty with only 2 other tables seated when we arrived. One of us tried the lasagna which had cloves in it which was unique and did not have ricotta cheese... More

Had a wonderful meal at this restaurant. Excellent food and service. Good vegetarian pasta options. Four of us loved the house wines, lasagna, and lobster special.

Pasta was good. Not much lobster in the lobster dish. Good place for family with kids. Carafe of house wine pretty good. Nice local place, but moderately expensive (center of town)

Took the wife here on our anniversary while vacationing. The service was superb and the fresh handmade pasta was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend if you are ever in Portland, ME

this place has great homemade Italian pasta and excellent wine. If you want anything else, this is not for you. It's good, simple and well done.

Yum... having traveled in Italy, I feel that this establishment comes closer to authentic Italian food than most places that boost to be such! I had ravioli's that were to die for, my husband had a pasta with walnut sauce - total yum! And they had Italian Beer! The portions were not huge - which is another thing I appreciate... More

My husband and I were told this was the place to go for good Italian pasta. We stopped by to make reservations and ended up having a glass of wine. The host treated us to bread and sauce and we were sold on making the reservations for the following night. And that's where the excitement ends. The food was okay... More

the menu is Very limited and yes, homemade and custom made. It just didn't have much flavor and the prices for a plate of pasta and sauce were just too much for us.

Really nice Italian cuisine here - limited menu but showed off strength of kitchen and quality of ingredients. Unfortunately, another case of very low light levels. My optometrist tells meI have very good vision for my age but I wish I had had a torch to read the menu. The lack of light also seems to have contributed to some... More

Enjoyable atmosphere, good service and the raviolis were good. Portland is a gem of a city for eating and sightseeing.
