We've been to Hugs twice in the last week; meals were consistently good. Interestingly, we hadn't been before, but their sister restaurant in Sugarloaf (Kingston, ME) came highly recommended when we were up in Rangeley a few weeks back. So after 9 months of living around the corner, we gave it a shot. What a pleasant surprise! The service both... More

I have tried to find a reason to rate this place as average and I was unable to. The family salad was wilted and soaked in dressing but even more disturbing was the rock hard croutons that dominated it. Even after soaking in the excessive dressing for 30 mins they still could not be dented. The appetizers were fair but... More

We especially love going to this restaurant in the winter. The northern Italian cuisine is perfect on a cold night and the dining room is warm and cozy.

Br. Sprouts app, veal francaise and chicken with broc were so-so. When we needed the waitress she was looking at her cellphone at the bar. When we were trying to have a conversation about the tip she was hovering over us. Also, the waitress delivered our salad bowls with her fingers down inside them. Not professional. We won't be going... More

Visited Hugs in February with a small business group. Food was outstanding! and the portions were family sized.- much larger portions that typically found in the Portland area restaurants. We ordered several appetizers for the table and quickly found out that we could have easily made the appetizers our dinners! Entrees were quite large and the Veal Parm was terrific... More

I felt that this place is a step above Olive Garden, in that if you want decent, comfort Italian food, it works. However, our service was extremely slow, and none of the food stood out to me as great (not even the pesto bread, which I badly wanted to love). I prefer to keep driving into Portland, and eat at...

We visited this restaurant for the first time on New'sYear's Eve. Although it was super busy, we had reservations and got in just about on time. Loved the chocolate martinis and cheese sticks which are served instead of bread. There were six of us and we had a variety of dishes.....chicken limone, veal parmesan, eggplant parmesan. My sister had a... More

Located in a strip center with easy parking this restaurant has been a staple for good Italian atmosphere and food for awhile. Small, Quiet, pleasant lighting, comfortable upscale atmosphere to consume the Italian cheeze sticks before appetisers or main meal. Bar is friendly and has a local following. Especially nice for couples that want to talk (or listen). Sometimes piano... More

Hugs has so many great Italian dishes on the menu that it was hard for me to decide. That said, my dinner mates and I all really enjoyed our dinners. The portions are huge and would be more than enough to share or to bring home. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is pleasant. I would not hesitate to... More
