What a great dining experience....and a fabulous break from eating lobster and clams. The homemade pasta dishes are incredible and service from the entire staff is very good. We enjoyed Insalata Di Cesare and Insalata Caprese to start and moved on to Lobster Ravioli (RAVIOLI D'ARAGOSTA) and Veal/Mushroom Ravioli as half portions. They were both FABULOUS. We then shared the Sea Bass (BRANZINO AL FORNO) special entrée and Panna Cotta with berries for dessert (PANNA COTTA AI FRUTTI DELLA STAGIONE).

This was a wonderful surprise when we first discovered it last summer (August 2013). We were vacationing in the Booth Bar Harbor area and happened upon the restaurant (which we had not seen on earlier visits). The surprise was the genuine ITALIAN quality and class of the dishes, esp. the pastas (ravioli was exquisite) and the veal plates. Abetted by a good selection of Italian wines and graced by an attentive, lively staff, Ports of Italy shone in our memory. It's a treasure to go back to when we return to Booth Bay.

Downtown Boothbay Harbor Restaurant with outstanding, homemade Italian food! Busy place and we were glad we had made reservations ahead on Open Table… Homemade lobster ravioli was sooo good! Black ink pasta with seafood was amazing! Helpful, friendly staff. Great dining experience!

Fresh lobster ravioli was delish! We went on a whim during a rain storm and were told reservations were required, we ask about bar service and were pleased to find that they do serve food at the bar. There are only 10 or so seats but we dined with others and had a great time and great service.

My son and I just returned from a trip to Boothbay Harbor, He is a vegetarian and I don't eat meat so we needed a place that had options for us
Our meal was wonderful, he had the gnocchi in basil pesto and I had the spinach ravioli in sage butter, we started with the veg appetizer, great meal.
Our waitress also said all meals are cooked to order so we could adjust the ingredients to omit meats or fish.
It is not cheap but was worth the price
