"[Chef Lee] Skawinski not only crafts an authentic Italian menu, he aims to create a truly Italian dining experience...The formula has clearly caught on."
- The James Beard Foundation

Located in the heart of Portland's historic Old Port, Cinque Terre welcomes visitors with an open kitchen and a comfortable brick, copper and wooden-beamed dining room. The restaurant's wide and innovative selection of fresh seafood, beef, game and fowl dishes has earned accolades from regional and national press, as have the restaurant's hand-crafted pastas, housemade gelatos and all-Italian wine list.

Nearly a dozen Maine farms, including the restaurant's own Grand View Farm, supply Cinque Terre with first-rate produce, and the restaurant is highly regarded for its use of Italian and locally produced artisanal cheeses, Italian cured meats, and olive oils. Cinque Terre is not to be missed for an authentic Italian
dining experience!

"Una cena senza vino e come un giorno senza sole." A meal without wine is like a day without sunshine.
