A friend recommended this restaurant. He claimed it was as good as any Italian restaurant he has eaten. He was absolutely spot on. There was three of us and we all had different meals. I had a Tuna special that was cooked rare to perfection. The olive and tomatoes topping was unique and delicious. Next was a lobster ravioli that was locally made and outstanding. Last was a simple rigatoni with tomatoes and sauce that satisfied all of us. The service was authentic Italian friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the menu. The antipasto vegetables served to us family style were tender and crisp. A couple different breads and olive oil started us off nicely with a nice (reasonably priced) bottle of Chianti. Ask for inside seating for romantic table or sit out on the enclosed porch. You just will not be able to believe how good this Italian restaurant is in Boothbay!

Was in Boothbay Harbor, ME again after after six months and returned to this fine restaurant for dinner with my wife. The owner made us feel very welcomed and the server was both efficient and friendly. They have a very nice wine list from which to make your selection. We shared the ravioli stuffed with lobster and a homemade rigatoni in a ragu sauce; both were excellent. For dessert, we shared the mousse cioccolate; it was delicious. Will certainly eat here again anytime I come back to Boothbay Harbor.

We ordered homemade lobster ravioli and pasta bolognese. We loved everything and will return there whenever we're in Maine.

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.
