We enjoyed five different small plate dishes during happy hour pricing and loved each of them! Authentic Italian dishes at a fantastic price between 4-6 pm. Glasses of wine were deeply discounted also. Highly recommend 40 Paper for dinner.

The food is excellent and the cocktail/wine list is well curated. The service is very good. Note that the menu is more of a farm-to-table style, which means not huge, and some seasonal ingredients are repetitive (lots of kale, lots of fennel, lots of arugula...).

The flatbreads were a perfect starter, but the grilled calamari stole the show. Heavenly to say the least. The peach cobbler was also a perfect ending.

Located in the century-old Knox Mill, our bistro is situated on top of the Megunticook River, just between the two waterfalls. At Brevetto, our modern Italian bistro cuisine is designed to pair perfectly with our extensive– and almost exclusively Italian– wine list. Brevetto is Italian for “patent,” and throughout the restaurant you will find turn-of-the-century schematics of wine presses and odd, out-dated food machines. In stark contrast to the complicated workings of a “salami washing machine,” our menu is simple and straightforward. We feature a large menu with a range of grilled pizzas, Italian pastas, and a variety of entrées. In addition to our extensive wine list, we also have a full bar with artisan draft beers and liquors. Enjoy your dinner in our inviting dining room, or on our waterfront deck. Relax with an obscure Italian red wine at our bar, or an extra-dry gin martini on the leather sofa. Brevetto has some of the best of both worlds, right in downtown Camden.
