We were looking for Italian, after having our fill of lobster, clams and haddock over the past two days. We were told by our Inn Keeper that there was no Italian place in Boothbay Harbor so we chose to go to Kaler's. Unfortunately, they stopped serving at 8:30 and it was almost 9. Low and behold, right across the street was Ports of Italy; and they were open for dinner. We had a very nice meal with linguini carolina and a nice chianti. Just what we were looking for, and a good change of pace. The menu was extensive with lots of good choices for anti pasta as well as desserts. It is not on the harbor but still has good views from the upstairs dinning area.

We live in a major metropolitan area with lots of great Italian restaurants and I would put Ports of Italy up against any of them. Gnocchi was wonderful. Lobster Ravioli was delicious. Make a reservation (we could not get a table the first night we tried) and ask to sit outside on the deck. Though not a water view, the breeze and atmosphere is very nice. Our best meal while in Boothbay Harbor.

Stayed in Boothbay for two days. Ate at Ports of Italy. Food was delicious, nice menu and great service. My husband had the special - lasagna and I had the rigatoni. Both were great.

We ate at Ports of Italy both nights we were in town. Both meals were off-the-hook delicious. Sante, the owner and muse behind this restaurant, brings a delicacy to traditional italian dishes that makes other italian restuarants seem clumsy and crude. Truly the finest italian food I've ever had. Pricey, schmicey! Are those reviewers kidding??? We had a $50 botttle of wine, two entres, shared an appetizer and a dessert and it cost us about $130. Don't miss this place.

My wife chose this gem tonight! WOW! The best truly Italian food that we have ever had! Everything is homemade from the great salad of fresh tomato, cucumber, onion and arugula to the sage and ricotta ravioli in butter to my black spaghetti seafood dish. The wait staff was the best ever. They worked to please all in step. Try this restaurant, you will not be disappointed!
