An Italian experience at the Samoset

Lunch today with the better half. For starters - first impressions. Decor tastefully done and attention to detail is evident in both the lounge and dining room. Open, lots of light - views to the bay only add to the ambiance. We were there from 12:30PM to 2:15 or so -- they were reasonably busy for a rainy day. The good stuff - - - her, a glass of Tiamo Pinot Grigio , me -- the Rocca Delle Macie Chianti. Antipasti, we shared the Crispy Calamari with Zucchini - lovely -- nicely done with the addition of red and green peppers - the pomodoro sauces was especially nice . For our mains the better half chose the Pan Roasted Wild Salmon and I , the Pappardelle Farnese. The boss gave the salmon the big thumbs up and I could not decide whether to eat the braised beef ragu or " sleep ' with it ! Both of us gave our dishes a really big " salude". Finishing with Chocolate Budino for her and I an Expresso with Frangelico on the rocks. Other points --- the bread is freshly made and absolutely superb with a nice bowl of olive oil. Our waiter was Kyle whose presence was attentive but not obtrusive - the mark of one who has the special touch. I rated the restaurant 4/5 stars simply as we have not have dinner there yet --- to be continued next Friday night. In my opinion this new addition to the Mid-coast food scene will be a welcomed addition to both the vistors and locals alike. Bon Appetito !!
