I truly enjoyed the Black
I truly enjoyed the Black and Blue Pork Tenderloins. The risotto special with seasonal asparagus was also very good. My husband had the tortellini with chicken. He liked it very much. We shared the mussels- Thai style. They had just the right amount of heat.

We met friends here, and the experience was excellent. We continued to visit long after we'd finished eating and didn't feel hurried. I was impressed by their ability to provide gluten free food. The food was tasty, the decor tasteful, with a view of rushing water. I look forward to coming back again!

I have had the opportunity to dine at this fine restaurant a number of times and each time it has been an incredible experience.
The food is outstanding, the service phenomenal and the atmosphere is wonderful.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a totally delightful and fine dining experience.

Every time we go to dinner here the food is phenomenal. We always order the lobster artichoke dip and almost always the arrabiata. The food is hearty, fresh and innovative with all the standard italian options created in an authentic way as well as including deliciously creative special items! We love it!

We were anxious to take our city relatives to a restaurant they would enjoy here in rural Maine, and thought the ambience at Cazolaio's would reflect Maine perfectly. Our dining experience started off a little slow. It took awhile to receive our drinks, and once they arrived, two were not great. Our waitress noted that we weren't enjoying our drinks as much as she had hoped, and on her own, brought us replacements which were perfect. Our food was terrific, the wine wonderful and our waitress the absolute best! So after a little blip at the beginning, thanks to our spectacular waitress and the excellent food, we left feeling great about our dining experience. Our guests from 'the city' were duly impressed!

Appreciate cutting a meal in 1/2 on a diet.
Would like if they continue the card for getting dinners they have had for two years. Really liked that. sorry they are not going to have that any more.

Delicious food with GF options
Had one of our best meals ever while stopping over in Wilton, ME for one night. First time my daughter could eat bread with us before the meal. Our waitress Rachel put in our order for GF bread (extra cost but worth it) early so it would be ready when she brought our Italian bread. Caesar salads were generous. French onion soup may had been the best my husband has ever had. My ravioli was filled with cheese and mushrooms (sorry, I can't remember the name) with a delicious cream sauce that had sun-dried tomatoes and cilantro. Hubby had eggplant parm with a spicy red sauce and amazing garlicy risotto on the side. My daughter had baby clams cooked in butter over GF pasta. Got GF shortbread rasp bar, tiramisu & rasp sorbetto. Must go!

great evening with friends
Wonderful evening, tried a crabmeat alvacado salad was great!

I think that it is safe to say that we all (6 of us) LOVED our waitress! She was super energetic, friendly, and had a knack of knowing exactly what to say when it came time to decide what to order.

The food is absolutely good, we were party of four and all of us had lovely experience. The service was a bit slow, the waiter took almost full 15 minutes before taking our orders but we totally forgot about that once our entree came. Will definetely coming back for more.

hostess with the unmostess
We had a fantastic evening. We had a party of 6. Rachel was our server and was phenomenal. The hostess not so much. We had a 515 reservation and dinner was moving along nicely, dinner did take a little long to come out of the kitchen but we were ok with that because appetizers and conversation was filling any sort of void. We ate, had coffee and dessert and before my fork hit my dessert plate the hostess was right there taking the check and clearing plates. Then she stood and stared. We felt rushed by the hostess, which I found out was the owner. Now, I dont know how her day was going, but that experience trumped the evening and was the topic of conversation for a few miles down the road. WE WILL RETURN.

Wonderful Dining Experience!
The building is beautiful - exposed brick, stone, old wood floors - you get the picture. My husband and I went for a late lunch on a Sunday. The hot bread with dipping sauce (oil & herbs) was delicious. My husband had the 'popcorn shrimp cocktail' for an appetizer. They were spicy, lightly breaded and not greasy. He reported his 'Veal Marsala' to be excellent as was my 'Parmesan Salmon'. Both entrees were served with a choice of pasta and sauce and a seasoned butternut squash side. The portions are huge! I took over half of my dinner home (sweet!). We opted to share the tiramisu which was very light and excellent. Our server Rachel was lovely and efficient. She really has a very nice way about her. We will definitely be back.

Always a perfect experience
The title sums up my opinion of Calzolaio Pasta Company. The staff is thoroughly acquainted with the extensive menu and patiently answers all questions until a guest narrows the choices to place their order. The servers are attentive without hovering and always pleasant. The food? Simply the best in this part of Maine. We have dined at Calzolaio many times with and without guests and without exception, every meal served to our table has been of gourmet quality...well presented, proper temperature, and delicious. Ambience is great...interesting décor, soft lighting, and well-spaced tables.
