Review of Cinque Terre

Cinque Terre received 4 stars from today’s review in the Maine Sunday Telegram.

On the night we visited, every plate was outstanding. Our server knew the menu inside and out and spoke intelligently about the wine list. We were greeted warmly and well taken care of from start to finish.

I departed with a feeling of calm contentment rather than titillation, reminded that there’s no need to head to large cities — or the five villages of Italy — for excellent cuisine redolent of this region. Farm- and sea-to-table dining is in very good hands at Cinque Terre. The establishment deserves its many kudos for helping to put Maine’s largest city on the destination list for food lovers.
