After eating for almost a week in Camden, this is our first disappointing meal. Very expensive and food was a definite miss. There are so many other places to eat here, I can't understand how this one can survive. We spent $100 and couldn't finish...More

Wow! What a treasure to find!!! The menu is enticing and we had a hard time deciding what to order. Our waiter was helpful and wonderful and the food was delicious - every bite. And extremely well priced. We will definitely be back!

Dined here for a meet and greet for a potential hire. Glad I didn't have to pay the bill. Food was OK, unlike another reviewer, I will say better than the owner's other restaurant, whose food and staff left a lot to be desired. Our...More

The drinks here are phenomenal. Their use of quality liquors and subsequent mixing of strong drinks, make this a fave of ours. There are always 5-6 drinks that are at $5-5.50 . The wine is half price also. The Happy Hour food is very good(...More

Located in the century-old Knox Mill, our bistro is situated on top of the Megunticook River, just between the two waterfalls. At Brevetto, our modern Italian bistro cuisine is designed to pair perfectly with our extensive– and almost exclusively Italian– wine list. Brevetto is Italian for “patent,” and throughout the restaurant you will find turn-of-the-century schematics of wine presses and odd, out-dated food machines. In stark contrast to the complicated workings of a “salami washing machine,” our menu is simple and straightforward. We feature a large menu with a range of grilled pizzas, Italian pastas, and a variety of entrées. In addition to our extensive wine list, we also have a full bar with artisan draft beers and liquors. Enjoy your dinner in our inviting dining room, or on our waterfront deck. Relax with an obscure Italian red wine at our bar, or an extra-dry gin martini on the leather sofa. Brevetto has some of the best of both worlds, right in downtown Camden.
