The food was good but not great. Had the veal ravioli with a nice sauce but meat was not particularly tender. Overall good meal.

Wonderful leisurely dining and great food. Ambience casual and romantic. Food choices were varied, wine list and choices reasonable. Presentation was excellent as well as wait staff. Highly recommend an evening at Ports of Italy!

Think you wouldn't want Italian while in a Seafood predominant location. Reconsider! This restaurant was recommended to us by locals and our family of 6 gave it a try after a few days of nothing but seafood. It was a welcome and surprisingly good change....More

Lobster ravioli was melt in your mouth good. Caprese salad was very tasty and served in a crispy edible parrmesan bowl. I don't think you can go wrong with anything you order. Atmosphere is a bit formal, but well worth a visit. Attentive staff.

I know it's hard to believe. One of the best Italian restaurants in America in a small harbor tourist town with highly seasonal business. Not sure why or how, but it is!
