"The Portland Phoenix Readers Choice": Voted Best Italian Restaurant 2008

"Wonderful Valentines meal at home. Delicious tastes and superb wonderful dinner. We felt like we were in Italy on a chilly Maine winter night. The fresh pasta flavors and herbs melded together so beautifuly. We loved all 3 dishes eggplant rollatini Ravioli Bolognese and fettuccine Alfredo with a beautiful focaccia bread to complement our meal. The Caesar salad to start the meal was perfect. We are looking forward to the tiramisu ,the end to our perfect night in!
Kudos to Chef Kevin And his team . 6 stars !!!!"

"Attentive and knowledgeable service from server Jim. Especially impressed with his ability to select a wine for my non-wine-loving friend. We ordered 6 dishes and they were each flawlessly executed! One of the dishes was a risotto made fresh from start to finish with perfect texture and consistency - very impressive and unusual that a chef devotes this amount of effort and time during service. The kicker? Not very expensive relative to the quality and quantity of food. Very well done in the top tier category of Portland fine dining." Local Guide Scott Payson
