Once again Santé has delivered a top shelf experience for another summer season.....2014. His continued success formula is represented by a high per cent age of returning employees. He is doing it the right way. The food is superb, the service is excellent and Santé is the perfect Italian host. This is a restaurant experience not to be missed if you are visiting Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Wonderful & innovative choices like squid ink pasta, served in a professional yet very friendly atmosphere.

The restaurant was just a block from our hotel. It is located upstairs near the end of the business area. Service was fit for a king and queen! The maitre d was warm and friendly and gave us a choice of whether to sit outside or inside. Because it was a bit cool we sat inside. Our waitress was delightful! We enjoyed a wonderful appetizer of cheeses, salami, prosciutto and olives. For the entree I had CIOPPINO DI PESCE, a most wonderful bowl of scallops,shrimps, calamari, mussels and littleneck clams simmered in a white wine and tomato herb broth. It quite possibly was the best seafood dish I have ever eaten. Husband had TAGLIATELLE ALLA BOLOGNESE which was made with strips of fresh homemade pasta with a meat and tomato ragu. There was none left on his plate after eating. I so wish this place was not 1500 miles away!!!

We go there often during the summer and the owner makes sure that all his patrons are pleased with their food experience. He supervises all that goes on at every moment. Authentic Italian menu, all delicious!
