A true fine dining experience. The food, the view, the service - all were excellent. Everything from appetizer to dessert was delicious and prepared as fine dining should be. We would definitely return and recommend to our friends.

Superb! Reservations are a must as it is a tiny restaurant. Everything was SO delicious! We had the fresh blueberry mojito to begin our wonderful meal and everyone ordered something different. This was one of the best meals I've eaten in my life, and I...More

Best greens ever in the salad. Seriously the best, most flavorful. The only way to improve the salad would be to tear them into smaller pieces. The lobster ravioli was a perfect entree to share after a busy day. Nice wines as well. Will be...More

Hosting friends for a weekend coming up and would like to come to Aragosta - but having no prices on the menu is daunting. Can you give me an example of a few dishes and prices to help us plan?

Hi There, Our dinner menu changes daily so our pricing varies. Appetizers are about $10-$15, entrees are about $26-$37 and desserts are about $8. Feel free to give us a call with any questions 207-367-5500!
I noticed that in the description it says to 'join us for lunch' but the hours listed are 5pm - 9pm. I'm wondering what your lunch hours would be as we'll be in town next week and would be interested in visiting your restaurant.

Aragosta, meaning "lobster" in Italian, is presented by Chef Devin Finigan of Brooklin. Her farm-to-table cuisine features only the freshest and best quality meat, seafood and produce from local purveyors. Her love of Mediterranean and Italian cooking and the Maine coast come together for a beautiful menu of delicious food that is simply good. Guests will enjoy dishes like Chef Devin's specialty, butter-poached lobster ravioli, while overlooking the breathtaking views of Stonington Harbor. The kind, knowledgable staff will guide guests through the menu and thoughtful wine list to create a memorable dining experience. Join us for lunch on our beautiful deck as well, where Chef Devin has created a menu that puts an elegant twist on classic pub fare.
