The butcher's breakfast was outstanding. Bring your appetite because there's a lot to eat. The focaccia is fresh and absolutely delicious.

This is an excellent restaurant. The dishes were perfectly prepared in a Northern Italian manner. My husband had the bucatini with sausage which was well seasoned and made with pasta that we watched them make. The portions are generous but not ridiculous. The atmosphere is relaxed with simple tables and booths but pleasantly lighted which gives it a cozy feel.... More

We've been looking for a great brunch in Portland Maine and, after ten years of looking, have finally found it. It is NOT a buffet; table service is provided by an attentive and professional wait staff. We had eggs Benedict, cooked to perfection exactly as ordered. Bloody Marys were likewise perfect with no oddball experimentation. (Have you ever been served... More

Nice variety of brunch items.. the server was very pleasant, but seemed new and described one of the specials having "some kind of sauce" which we found a bit puzzling.. but we enjoyed our meal very much.

The antipasto, with their homemade bread on the side, is NOT to be missed! Can't wait to return for a repeat experience.

We went for our first HH here this week. The bar was busy by 5pm. There is a small buffet of free snacks, Italian by nature. They make a really good tart. All tap beers were discounted to $3 and $4 and the house wines red & white are drinkable at $3 a decent pour. The bartender was busy but... More

As a fella with some wine training, I was pleased to see that the Corner Room was listed in Wine Spectator's (well respected wine mag) Best Restaurants issue. The resto did not disappoint. A wonderful selection in their 'by the glass' program. A varied menu that made wine pairing easy and successful. Well worth a visit (or two).

We absolutely loved this place. We arrived early during the week so we were quickly seated in a nice booth. We ordered some of their amazing garlic bread and it was divine. They also bring you some delicious bread with lemony olive oil with every meal which was wonderful as well. We both decided to order some homemade pasta dishes... More
