I have enjoyed many meals at this location. Just happened to check up on the wine we drank and found that what they charged us $38 for is available for 11.99. I expect markup, but this has soured my desire to eat there again. All wines are way high,but hoped they were better wines. Portions have gotten smaller as well. Used to put half in a box and eat rest there. Now only enough for barely a meal! Veal marsala was very sweet. But the food in general is very good as is bread, oil dip and service.


Main complaint is the wine pricing. I enjoy a good wine as this one was, but not at 300% markup.

When I go into an Italian bistro, I expect authentic fare. The place was small, very loud and our meals were just adequate. Not a very pleasurable experience for us

Excellent food and service. Too bad it's not located in New Jersey. We'll have to wait another year to eat there.

Belfast, Maine has been coming up in the world for a number of years and Delvinos, a cosy, upscale Italian restaurant is part of that trend. The food is delicious, if a little pricey. I had a delicious pasta off the specials board.

With an original menu of some traditional and interesting non-traditional fresh foods, wines and beers, this is our favorite Belfast eatery. We have recently taken to stopping in for happy hour and have enjoyed a much relaxed atmosphere and yummy appetizers. The full menu includes some of the best fried calamari with a full flavored but light marinara sauce. Among our favorites also are the mussels in a rich broth, the Wasabi Tuna, and any of the home made pastas. There are great daily specials from which to chose as well. Service is routinely professional, pleasant, knowledgeable and fun. This is where we go when we are entertaining or just want a nice meal out. Very reliable! Always memorable.
