The Corner Room Italian Kitchen & Bar

110 Exchange St. Portland, ME




Chef Harding Lee Smith’s passion for authentic Italian cuisine is on display here, with hand-pulled mozzarella, beautiful house-made pasta dishes, and crisp-crusted pizza. Arancini or a generous antipasti board is a great way to start while perusing the all-Italian wine list, which was recognized by Wine Spectator for its excellence. The bright space and open kitchen evoke the feel of an Italian osteria.
