Solo Italiano

100 Commercial St., Portland, ME





Traditional and creative Italian food is the mission for chef Paolo Laboa, a previous World Pesto Championship winner and Genoa native. The menu changes daily, offering house-made pasta lovingly cooked with local ingredients. Crudo preparations are artfully prepared and presented with the freshest seafood. Apertivo Hour is wonderful, with Italian cocktails and small bites.
