“Fresh Pasta!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Recommended by several people we met on our trip. They do not take reservations but do a 'call ahead' … you should do that! It is a small restaurant that fills up quickly. Known for serving 'garlic knots' … delicious. Waitress was knowledgeable about the menu. I had a seafood and linguine dish. Portions were just the right size … filling but not overbearing. Fresh ingredients. We had traditional spumoni for dessert too!

“very good food ,excellent service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

We found the food excellent.We had four different meals and everyone loved their meals.Our waitress was excellent. We had a nice leisurely meal with good food and good service.We will go back when we are in the area. A good sign was that the placed was packed on a Monday night and their was always someone waiting.

“Delicious lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2014

We stopped here for lunch and we shared bruschetta, seafood chowder and a salad.
I loved their bruschetta with tomatoes, basil, mozzarella, and balsamic vinegar, but my husband not as much. He loved the seafood/leek chowder, the flavour was great but I had virtually no seafood nor leeks. The salad with greens, Gorgonzola, marinated vegetables and nut pesto was great!

“Nice small town Italian resturant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

While in Mid-coast Maine for a weekend away, dined here on the advice of family, and was pleased that we did. About 40 seats, was busy but not noisy while we were there. A lot of locals seemed to be here, that's a good sign. Was seated quickly, and waited on with a smile and good humor. Drinks came fast, food came in a reasonable amount of time, and was delicious.

Noticed a couple that came in and asked to order as they were being seated as they had a local theater show to make, and they were taken care of- nice to see that kind of extra care was provided.

Overall a very nice place we'll return next time we're near Brunswick.

“Where locals go for Italian in Brunswick”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

Very good food and reasonably priced. This is one of those restaurants that feels like home. My favorite is chicken parm, my wife says their lasagna is "to die for" and my daughter loves anything they do with pesto.
