Portland, ME - italian/pre-marathon meal

beetlebug | Sep 21, 2004 11:59 AM


I am headed up to Portland, ME for the first weekend of October. I am looking for a place to eat my pre-marathon meal. Over the years, I figured out that I liked to chow on homemade pasta before the race. A big plus if the restaurant serves homemade pasta with a ragu sauce. Good bread and dessert is a bonus but not necessary.

After a quick review of the board, I've narrowed it down to:

Rachel's Osteria
Natasha's Restaurant

Do either of these take reservations?
Make their own pasta?

Have great food?

I am also open to suggestions.

Thanks in advance.
