Dirty, mediocre atmosphere, LOUSY FOOD and overpriced! A truly regrettable restaurant experience! The high ratings are a total mystery to me. I rarely/never bother to comment but our experience was so bad that I just had to warn other potential diners.More

Really tasty spicy seafood pasta, the Spaghetti Arrabiatta. Made with homemade pasta. Cheap beers ($3) during happy hour from 3-6 too - can’t go wrong after a day shopping in Freeport. Thanks Jill for the friendly service and giving our kids their leftovers to go.

We had a late supper on the sidewalk. We were a bit unsure whether the restaraunt was open as it is a bit off the beaten path. My wife ordered the special - a fresh Maine lobster - and was more than a bit surprised...More

Great little Italian restaurant one block back from LL Bean. Make their own pasta. I go through Freeport frequently and know where to get a great meal now.
