Belfast, Maine. Delvino's Grill & Pasta House

I heard about this last week and saw no reference to it here on Chowhound so we took a chance at it last night. They have been in business just over a year and appear to have become quite poplular. I could see and taste why. Small storefront, reminded me of Besca, but charming. No pretense here - downhome comfortable. Waitstaff is welcoming and knowledgeable, very pleasant. The better half and I are food grazers and eat eveything together so we began. Crusty Italian bread and nice oil are basic.
Fried ravioli( three cheese with jalapeno) , baked brie with fruit and baguette. Both were excellent.
Next eggplant parm and prosciutto/asparagus saute - both a treat. I, being a sucker for prosciutto , was delighted. Both served with angel hair pasta. Finish with a nice creamy cheesecake drizzled with dark chocolate.

We will return -- I would recommend if you are in the area or traveling through. Open 11AM until 8'ish, right on Main street.

  1. We live in Belfast and eat at Delvino's whenever we can. We have had wonderful meals there -- ribeye on lobster ravioli, eggplant parm sandwich, lady wasabi salad and on. Good food every time in a delightful place. And the owners are about to open a new place on High St. In Belfast, La Vida, which will have a Latin focus.

    1. Just finished dinner here now - really great food, we had the mushroom sachetti and the grilled ribeye with chorizo and lobster ravioli in a cream-based sauce. Hopefully we'll be back on the return trip from points north. We tried the Angler, but it closes at eight (on Fridays, anyway).
