It was a cold December Friday evening and the place was jumping! Warm, good energy. We stopped here for dinner before heading over to the Botanical Gardens "Gardens Aglow". Delicious all around. My only complaint was the fact that no house salad is available ~ odd; only $12 salads (which is pricy, considering). Would absolutely go back. Good find. Loved... More

We were in Boothbay to visit the light festival at the Coastal Botanic Gardens, and were delighted that this restaurant was open and taking reservations. We were seated shortly after arrival, and had very good waiter service throughout the meal. We enjoyed the wine - probably too much of it! - and we enjoyed our meals. We started with a... More

We stopped back for two nights during a visit to the Garden's Aglow display. The food and service remain a notch above anything else we have experienced in this town. A shout-out to the establishment for staying open though the end of December when most of the dining establishments have long since closed for the season and for having such... More

Like our last visit here, again we had an excellent experience. From the moment we came up the stairs, until we left, we were treated as special guests. The service was prompt and well timed, but there was no feeling of being rushed. The Vitello al Funghetti (veal) and the Filetto di manzo al gorgonzola (filet mignon) were both perfectly... More

One of favorite restaurants in the state of Maine, Ports of Italy never disappoints. The service is impeccable, and it's hard to imagine you're not in a side-street trattoria in Perugia, Italy. We can't wait to try Ports II in Kennebunk. Thank you Sante for once again giving us an over-the-top dining experience !!! The Porchetta Suckling Pig is NOT... More

Over all the restaurant is excellent. It is great to find in a small town like Booth Bay Harbor. I had the porchetta, which was very good. My wife had veal ravioli with a truffle cream sauce, which was outstanding. The burrata appetizer which was very fresh and very good. Nice wine list with many good choices at fair price... More

Dinner at Ports of Italy was recommended by innkeeper, Buzz, at Topside Inn. Less than a block from the inn, it was an easy walk. Their beautifully presented Caprese salad in a parmesan "basket" was as pleasing to the eye as the palate. The Halibut was perfectly done. Our server is a nice man, but not especially friendly after we... More
