While having Christmas with my mother and siblings we decided to eat that night at Ports of Italy. It has a good reputation so we wanted to try it. The Christmas dinner included one appetizer, a first course, a second course and then dessert. The appetizer I had was eggplant filled with ricotta cheese with tomato sauce over it and... More

What a treat. We loved our delicious four course prix fixe meal. Great choices for three of the courses, excellent service, delicious and well prepared food. One course had a single selection, spinach ravioli, and was fantastic. Make reservations well in advance. You won't want to miss eating there.

We had a very nice dinner on a cold, rainy blustery night. The owner seated us on his heated outdoor deck which turned out to be very comfortable. They brought bread, herbed oil, and 2 small appetisers as we ordered. The meals were well prepared, thoughtfully presented and tasty. We opted out of desert, although they looked great. Service was... More

We had dinner here before heading to the Botanical Gardens for the Christmas light show. Luckily we went early because they were busy. All the pasta is homemade. The meal was excellent.

Returned to this restaurant for another wonderful dinner. Our server Josh was friendly and did a great job describing the specials. He was attentive to our every need. The food is fresh, beautifully plated and delicious. The mussels are to die for. My husband had the haddock special. You can always tell fresh fish and it was fantastic. My filet... More

Started with bruschetta on the house and savory antipasto. Then homemade black ink spaghetti with assorted seafood in an herb sauce for one, lobster ravioli for another. Enjoyed a great Lumbrusco with dinner and finished with delicious coffee. Only disappointment was not getting a chance to speak with the owner as he worked the room. Definitely need a reservation as... More

I decided to order from Ports of Italy on a Thursday. We had our dog with us so we took the food back to our room. Lucky me being a vegetarian that I picked this restaurant on a Thursday. The special was spaghetti with meatballs or veggie meatballs which is what I ordered. I am still thinking about it three... More

Good food. Right in "downtown" Boothbay Harbor. Honestly much better than expected. Helpful and friendly staff.

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
