This is the real deal, with everything reportedly homemade. A friend recommended we go here and is it now one of our favorites, along with Piccolo. My husband loved the short rib agro dolce. My eggplant rollanti was too heavy but good (huge portion...leftovers for...More

We love Ribollita. Service and atmosphere were great. Food is not as expensive as many Portland places. We had the heart of romaine salad, gnocchi, and ravioli. Salad and gnocchi were very good. Probably wouldn't order the ravioli again, but it was worth a try....More

Food, service, menu all great! Went in without a reservation as it was a messy, snowy, icy night. Waiter knew everything about the menu nd provided excellent service. A must if in the old port.

This small trattoria in Portland has exceptional food, great service and an informal feel. I had duck confit with risotto and it was excellent. We also shared polenta crusted calamari that was well prepared and very tasty. The wine selection was extensive! Don't go without...More

We had a great meal, though I felt stuffed - eyes too big for my stomach. We were first given sliced bread with oil, which was a very good beginning accompanied by our wine. For appetizers we had calamari and the special was shaved brussel...More
