Unique setting. The building was very cool. The wait staff was professional, friendly, and efficient. The food was VERY GOOD! The portions were large...we took home leftovers! We had Fettuccini Alfredo, Ravioli with Marina sauce, and cheesey garlic bread. DELICIOUS!!
Great food! Service could have been better, waitstaff should be serving ice cream...
Always a good meal
Loved the food!
Did not like the way the food was ptesented made me feel like a child. I will never go there again.
The service and food are phenomenal every time we go. One of our favorite restaurants, hands down.
Amazing gluten free food! They even have gluten free dinner rolls
Ok food just pricie
Food is very good, portions are more than adequate, service was great.Prices are decent for quality
Great food, ok service
Delicious food! Great place!
We were glad we made reservations since there was already a 30 minute wait when we arrived. Service was impeccable, attentive and friendly. The bread and dipping oil were delicious as were the caprese appetizer and dinner salad. The pasta with bolognese sauce was a little dry. It could have used more sauce, but what was served was flavorful. The veal saltimbocca was okay. It was hard to taste the sage flavor. All in all, it was a very pleasant meal out on the deck listening to the stream. Definitely worth a return visit.
This place us out of this world great food great people and view of the river
Awesome atmosphere. Located in old shoe mill with red brick interior walls and aged wooden floors. Menu was extensive with unique mixed drinks.
A hidden gem in the old Bass Shoe mill in Wilton. I never imagined there was such a great Italian place so close to where we live. You'd usually have to go to Portland for a meal of similar quality. Great atmosphere, great food, and reasonably priced with a friendly wait staff and nice outdoor seating.
First time here and the service and food were amazing, great Maine crab cake with a huge mamosa, and the view and out door patio just made the perfect Saturday brunch. Highly recommend, and will return.
Everything was excellent! The service, atmosphere, and food we're each top notch. The parking was a little difficult to figure out, but was fine
Great and fun
Great food and excellent staff.
Fabulous food and great service. Thank you to owners Rocel and Tom!
Good food and service. Prices are excellent Nice ambiance.
My 2 girlfriends and I walked in around 5pm on a Saturday evening after hiking all day, therefore yes we were in our hiking attire. We were looked up and down, asked if we had reservations, after we told them no we were asked how many people total for dinner, stood there while a waitress grabbed menus and then someone else walked up to us and told us that they are booked for reservations, and nothing at the bar. Once in the parking lot, I called to double check as we were a bit skeptical and I asked if there was any time to wait, Nicole told me no. I asked how long take out usually took, and she then told me she was not taking any orders for take out because she was so busy. We decided to leave. There was one table seated outside and 4-5 other tables on the deck available. 30 minutes later, we called again asking for availability and asked if we could sit outside and Nicole told us she had one table “braving it out there” (it’s a chilly early October evening, but 60 degrees). They clearly did not need nor want our business, judged us before we even had a chance and it’s truly sad because all 3 of us have very well paying jobs and tip great.
Great food, ambience & service
Friendly people to wait on you Great customer servive Food is delicious I'd definitely go back and recommend it to others
Amazing food and very pleasant atmosphere. Good value for your money and great service. Wow. Local and family owned.
Great food - very friendly atmosphere
Delicious, prices were reasonable and staff was excellent.
Excellent food. They were very busy, and the host ended up acting as our waiter. He did an awesome job.
Very tasty brick oven pizza.
Definitely my favorite restaurant in the entire state of Maine! Yummmm
Good food, and great atmosphere. I went here twice while I was in the area for work. I'll be back if I'm in the area.
Mediocre overpriced food! Not worth the hype. I guess for rural Maine it's the best out here. $20 for pasta that's not even freshly made (tasted like boxed pasta from Hannaford). Save yourself the trouble and don't bother. The mother in our table ate the steak and she ordered medium well and it came medium rare. We sent it back and waited almost 30 mins for the new one to come out. Everyone had finished their food and was still waiting. They apologized and gave a "discount" and it ended up being $5 off. $27 steak. I told them it was pathetic, as it should have been comp. The owner came and talk and kept saying "Well it's a mistake. Did she eat her streak?" I kept explaining how it was unacceptable to make her wait that long after everyone was done and she kept saying "But she ate it" with A LOT OF ATTITUDE. It made me furious. They came back and gave another 20% off just the steak. I guess they rather still make a profit than having returning customers The fact that we even had to say something the first time shows the level of service this establishment gives. I do have to say the waiters service was good just the owner that clearly doesn't know how to keep customers Sad part was, when looking at the menu, I made the assumption that the pasta dishes was pricey for the area because it was probably home made. It definitely wasn't! Save yourself the disappointment.
This place is a jewel tucked away in an underrated little town in the western mountains. The food is scrumptious, the presentation beautiful and the wait staff is excellent.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Best eggplant parmesan I've had.
Nice place. Very good and creative foods. The waitress was very efficient, very pleasant and competent. Over-all it was an excellent dining experience. I highly recommend it.
great place fun
Love coming here. The food is always great and the only thing that beats it is the service!
Great Italian food in a new little town !! Pizza and pasta was awesome! Better than some places I’ve eaten in nyc!
Loved the food here! Service was not so great. It took a bit longer then we expected, and she was not to friendly towards the end of the night, but I figure it was a large group and she was near the end of her shift.
Very friendly service, great food!
Nice place. Very good and creative foods.
Good eats in rural maine.
Tortellini scallops were fabulous! First tine upstairs...nice atmosphere.
Prime rib is exceptional. Friendly, attentive staff.
Food is always excellent! Great service.
What a wonderful surprise to find in a small town. The building is historical (Bass Shoe factory) and the food was delicious. No complaints with their outstanding service.
Food was excellent..staff was good...hostess was a little unfriendly though..
We've been here several times for both lunch and dinner. Wonderful, lovely food. Recommend highly.
Great place! I have a food allergy and are always so accommodating. Best tasting food around! Also a wonderful staff.
Great as usual. Great meal, atmosphere, and bar area is beautiful. Only wish they had some sour beers.
Located in Wilton. Not easy to find, but on any map . Excellent in every way. Incredible food. Good tap selections.very good wine selections. And the service and atmosphere make me feel comfortable. Try this before going all the way to Portland.
Very nice atmosphere with friendly staff. I love that they offer outdoor seating and also have a full bar. Would give 5 stars. But, I find some of the dishes to be very over priced for what you actually are served. Even with that being said, it's definitely one of the best places in the area to eat.
Food was delicious! If you plan on coming here on the weekend, call ahead for a reservation!!! I plan on going back another time.
Top notch restaurant. They accommodated our large party that had different people arriving and leaving at different times with professionalism and friendly service. The food was delicious. I enjoyed pasta Bolognese, clam chowder, and a caeser salad. Good beer selection too. The environment is warm, cozy, and beautiful. Perfect place to have a large family get together in the cold winter. I'd like to come back in the warmer months as well.
Best food in Western Maine. I visit yearly from Montana and this is a must eat on every visit. Worth the extra $.
Great atmosphere. Seating both inside & outside. Friendly service & good food. Prices are reasonable, however the quantity of food seems to have diminished a bit and parking is sometimes a bit tough. Overall a good experience though.
Amazing food amazing atmosphere amazing customer service and waitresses
This is my fourth visit to the Calzolaio Pasta Company. I have been pleased every time. As a person who has owned a restaurant, I know how difficult it is to maintain all aspects of running a restaurant successfully, while working hard to maintain the customer's dining experience and their expectations. Calzolaio's has succeeded in all the above. I have not tried their breakfast yet, but if it's as good as their dinner, it will be a home-run. If you are considering a visit, don't even hesitate...what are you waiting for?
Wonderful restaurant and quite the surprise! Atmosphere is cute and quaint. Food was fantastic! I’ll definitely be back and recommend to others! (Not the best picture but it was fabulous!)
I had the Seafood Saute and it was amazing. No one at the table was disappointed with the food, atmosphere, or service.
Great pasta but ask to be seated down back it has a big boiler door and looks really cool
The good and the not so good.... First of all, I did find my new favorite beer on this visit (Allagash 12 Counties) so thank you for that. The staff was polite so no complaints there, and my boyfriend's seafood pasta dish was beautiful and delicious. The issue came with my meal. Being so early in the evening, I ordered off the light menu, the Portabella Caprese Stack. The mushroom itself was small, but tasty. It came with bagged chips, a jarred pickle and a child's snack cup of plain applesauce (literally the cup with the tinfoil top that I give the kids I babysit) . It felt very much like a child's dinner. I was very very disappointed that 3/4 of my food was what I could have gotten at any 2 star dinner or probably have in my own cupboard at home. The chips were bland and the applesauce, what do you say about Mott's applesauce? I don't like it, so I didn't eat it or the chips. Is it too much to expect actual restaurant cooked food when you go to a fairly expensive restaurant? Maybe so, but at any rate, I left hungry and am currently on the hunt for a good pie place to stop at on the way home. :( Edit after response: in no way does that explain 3/4 of my plate being convenience store junk. And no, I am not going to buy pie from you when I was so let down by the meal. Bye.
Amazing food, and a nice atmosphere.
Excellent food and service! The homemade marinara sauce was amazing.
Scrumptious food, great atmosphere, and great service! A local gem.
Awesome best Italian from north end to canads
Service was great,super nice young woman. Food is so good.
Always a good meal
Butternut squash risotto and Cesar salad, what a great lunch. Seated outside on the patio.
Delicious food, great atmosphere, building is beautiful inside! Some menu items are a bit pricey though. Staff is always friendly and helpful!
Great place, the food is good but a bit pricey! Definitely one the best restaurants in Franklin County.
Our family of 5 all tried something from here between the kids menu and regular adult menus. I have a child who has a sensory disorder and doesn't eat much but he ATE there including trying the appetizers ordered. Everything was delicious. We will definitely go again. And make a reservation next time because we didn't know that was encouraged since the dining areas fill up fast. We ate out on the deck which was lovely listening to the brook and added wonderfully to the atmosphere. Save room for dessert because the raspberry pie when they have it is worth the extra pound.
Good food and good service
Great food and drinks, friendly staff
Great food, good environment, but pricey. Would go back.
Third time eating here. If there were 6 stars they earned them, easy. Outstanding service and food. Be prepared to walk because there is a little parking lot and there very well may be a wait. Because... it’s outstanding food and service.
Very good food, nice place to sit outside
Found Calzolaio while out for a drive - what luck! Adorable place, great location, warm friendly staff, delicious food with good portions. It's a bit of a drive from home but we will be back.
They have a nice place to sit outside on the outdoor patio, great food good hospitality.
I really can’t sing enough the praises of this beautiful restaurant in its unique location in Wilton, ME. After we ordered, my fidgety 8-yr old went to the hostess station to ask for another children’s menu to draw on and the proprietor herself offered her her choice of coloring and activity books. Plus endless crayons! And the food. It was delicious. Sophisticated and authentic and AMPLE. We made a second meal out of the leftovers. The drinks were creative and well-crafted too. But what brought us in in the first place, and which was a slam dunk win, were the GLUTEN FREE options. My 8-year old has celiac and is very difficult to feed. She loved the GF garlic bread and the GF penne with basil pesto. The menus: the regular menu includes indicators for what dishes were GF, and which could be made GF. And if that is too complex for you, they also have a special diet menu so you don’t have to suffer the disappointment of seeing a dish you want, only to find it doesn’t come GF. There is clearly a lot of love and thoughtfulness being poured into the running of this restaurant both in the dining room and the kitchen. It was a delight and I wish we lived next door, and not in NYC where Calzolaio would rise above even our favorites.
Calzolaio is a great place for friends to gather for drinks and fine dining!! Excellent food and service! Lovely atmosphere!
Love this place
Just had one of the BEST French toast breakfasts I've ever had. Come and try their breakfasts. Their caprese burger is also delicious.
Marvelous food, second to none.
My first time there and omg they are amazing! Pricey but definitely worth it !
Faith was awesome! The food was great the deck was incredible We loved it
Outstanding restaurant, only place close to the food here was the Back Bay Grill in Portland and that cost three times as much. Seafood grill was perfect, real Manilla clams, scallops, haddock and shrimp all cooked perfectly. Service was excellent too and great atmosphere!
Best eats in town!
I have to give them only 2 stars because there was hardly anything vegan friendly to eat on their menu. Had to ask to have things held/taken off. There was an air of this being a pain in their ass...which I don't quite follow as I was still going to be paying full price even though the cheese etc. was removed. If you like food laden with cheese, cream and meat---then you likely won't object to their offerings. This is the 21st century though.... when I travel on the coast of Maine or Portland area most restaurants are vegan savvy these days....
Extremely poor service. Long wait before being acknowledged by wait staff. Never refilled drinks or checked on us during our meal. For was good but don't come here unless you have lots of time to wait for service, food and check.
Absolutely fabulous meal! I'm hard to please. When I hear great things about a place and then try it, I am usually disappointed....but Calzolaio delivered. Looking forward to my next visit. I had the piccata haddock and maple vinaigrette on my salad. Primo!
Pasta is not fresh, seating was terrible. Server kept asking if we wanted more drinks when we clearly were set with what we had. Overpriced, underwhelming & worst of all this place has been here as the pillar of finding dining in Wilton, ME for years now... wish they would use something from a local farm instead of Sysco I see delivering almost daily
We have been there twice now visiting my brother and his wife. I have Celiac and am so happy with the selection and quality of the food there. The staff is knowledgeable and very nice. We would both highly recommend this place to anybody.
Good food good Italian bread dipped in olive oil with spices
Good food nice atmosphere, would definitely come back
Great service and great food!
Food and device was Auesome!!
Food very salty. Garlic cheese bread very good. Service good.
Best dining option for high quality food in Franklin County! Seafood, Italian and steaks are all excellent.
Wonderful Italian American cuisine. Wide ranging menu, with many unique twists. Delightful decor, linen tablecloths, formal place settings. I imagine you should add a star if you don't get to the big city much as there's not much worthy competition in the Maine woods.
Great food great service
Great upscale dining
Great place. .. Great service always. .
Food was amazing! Their marinara is so tasty and they have great tomato basil bisque.
We have tried this place a couple times now so far the food has been outstanding, the atmosphere inside or out is nice and the service has been too notch. We can't wait to go back.
Great food and excellent service. The ambiance is very nice. Fun place to go and be with friends and family.
Excellent food and atmosphere.
Good food, great waitress, nice spacing between tables.
Best food in small town Wilton, Maine!
We had a party of 23 people and the waitress did an excellent job. Calzola's caters well for people who have gluten free issues. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is very cozy. We would recommend this restaurant with highest praises.
My favorite place in Franklin County for some delicious pizza or a special occasion. Nothing beats a warm summer afternoon enjoying a beer on the deck listening to Wilson Stream.
Excellent food. Nice place.
Good restaurant with all kind of food. We ate pasta but we were told shrimps and lobster are the best.
The food and service is amazing. A great place for anyone with dietary restrictions (gluten, dairy, etc)- the staff really work with you to meet your needs. The food is excellent.
Excellent Italian food tucked away in a rural town in Maine. I was pleasantly surprised to discover how good and authentic the food is here. Can't wait to go back!
great use of an old mill, friendly staff and AMAZING food!
Great food and service! Sad lobster bisque was on the menu but they don't make it anymore! But the claim chowder was amazing!
Great burger but the pemaquid mussels are delicious
Love sitting by the river for lunch
Great food, great service
What a gem of a restaurant! Food was yummy! Atmosphere so cozy!
It is a little pricey, but worth every penny. Not really a restaurant for people wanting to eat traditional meals. However, if you have a refined palate and a taste for adventure then this is definitely the place for you. Service was professional and the establishment was clean. In fact my mom commented on how she saw a table wiped down four times without occupants.
The most excellent Italian food we've had in over a decade. Not to say we haven't been to several nice places with great food but this set the bar so high (and we've done lots of traveling).....I honestly dont know if we will find anywhere like it. The atmosphere of the old re-done factory was done tastefully and respectfully to the industry and history. From the outside it looks like an un-assuming brick building in a cute part of town next to a beautiful creek. A local suggested the chicken carbonara because they make their own sauce....oh ....my.....THE best ever. We are still raving about it hours later. The pizza was beyond delicious and the 'Italian sodas' were such an awesome touch for the kids. I'd have to say the piece de resistance had to be the tiramisu. I had one supremely authentic and tastey tiramisu 20 yrs....YES, 20 YEARS ago. I have tried, with much disappointment, through the years to find one as well done and this FINALLY hit it on the head. The service was very awesome- and knowledgable. Can't say a bad thing about this place. The kids and husband and I will rant and rave about this place to anyone and everyone for many years to come. Again, the bar has been set very high. Thank you!!
We were a party of 6 for breakfast and we asked to sit on the patio and Our waitress Liz was wonderful! The patio was fantastic and everyone loved the food! We brought our friends from out of town and they all loved it! We will Def go again! :)
I had a very poor experience with the staff here yesterday. Perhaps something about my look or appearance was off putting to both the hostess and the waitress as I was ignored twice by both, however one may not always look their most presentable when grieving the loss of a loved one. My mother in law had just passed away yesterday morning; my parents called in a mid-sized take out order and paid in advance so that my wife, father in law, and myself could have some food to last a couple of days while we grieve and process our loss. I walk into the restaurant and patiently and quietly wait to be addressed by the hostess at the waiting area in the entrance. I was not greeted, though she saw me. After she seated the people ahead of me, she proceeded to ignore me until a father and son walked in behind me, who were promptly offered a table outside. Once she took care of them I finally politely said "excuse me, ma'am..." and without looking at me she said "one minute" and walks away. When she returned, another group of 3 walk in and she smiles politely, says she'll be right with them, and steps away. Meanwhile, a bar tender comes out from the back, sees me and the three behind me; she proceeds to ask them if they're being helped and they say yes. She does not ask me anything before turning away to go back to where she came from. At this point, I finally say "excuse me" again and walk up to the bar and state my purpose. No smile, no hello from the bartender. As she leaves out of sight to retrieve my order, the hostess comes back, ignores me standing by myself and addresses the group of 3 again. The food was fine and the outdoor patio looked inviting enough that I would have loved to dine-in another time with my family, but the consistent lack of consideration was so offensive and off-putting that I will never again return or recommend this establishment. I will never forget this experience. Class is not measured by how people treat you but by how you treat others. In my singular experience, I found class to be lacking in the front, customer facing aspect of this establishment.
Not kosher. Always busy.
Excellent top notch quality food prepared perfectly, loved it...
The food was delicious! I highly recommend the fried haddock or chicken and broccoli Alfredo pizza!
We were from out of town and almost turned out because we didn't have a reservation. We compromised and we sat at the bar which I dislike. There was no line there so i was shocked since it was 6:30. I had the linguini with shelled lobster claws in a basil wine sauce and it was the worst I've ever eaten. It had no basil and no flavor. My husband had the lobster roll which was mediocre. The gentleman next to me had crab cakes. Being from Maryland, I asked him and he said they were awful! My daughter is going to school there and we will never visit this restaurant again.
Great food. Great atmosphere. Spinach and artichoke dip appetizer is really good!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere!
Excellent food outstanding professional Waitresses outstanding barmaid outstanding personalities by all felt right at home can't wait to go back the best part is very very very reasonable prices can't wait to go back
Great Italian food where you least expect it!
Great atmosphere..Perfect food, good portions, outside dining..
Great place to eat, wonderful atmosphere ,great staff. !!! awesome menu
Calzolaio's is easily the best restaurant in the area. Really good food, chill service, great selection. Try the Dragon Slayer pizza!
Best place to eat within 70 mile radius.
I'll take my girlfriend here any time she wants to go.
GREAT Italian food
They have such great food. I have never been dissatisfied. Breakfast lunch and supper.
Great food. Great atmosphere.
Very disappointed! My husband and I ate here 2 weeks ago. The food was amazing! Couldn’t wait to return. I work retail a couple towns over and have been highly recommending this restaurant to my customers. We made reservations for 4 people on a Saturday night. The couple that we had with us had not been here before and we were very excited to have them try the food here. We had a unexpected friend visit us before we left and we asked her if she would like to come along. I had been looking forward to eating here ever since our last visit. When we arrived we were asked how many in our party as they got ready to seat us. We told them we had reservations and that we had 1 extra person. The hostess was very rude and said that they couldn’t accommodate another chair at the table. This was difficult to understand for the fact that when we first walked in they asked how many in our party as they were getting ready to seat us. The extra person that we had with us was the size of a small child barely weighing 100 pounds. The very snobby hostess said that they just couldn’t accommodate another chair at the table and turned us away. Maybe she was the owner of the establishment, she acted like she was. We just couldn’t believe it. They were going to sit us somewhere else when we first walked in but because we had reservations for 4 and not 5 we could not be served. Our plus 1 felt terribly about coming along and said she would sit at the bar where there were 2 empty seats. No restaurant is worth staying under those conditions.
Really good attention and delicious food one of the best restaurant on this area.
The portions were great for the price service was excellent and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. I would love to just be able to wander around and take in all the antiques on the walls throughout the place and hear more on the backstory of the building.
Great food and professionally run.
Great venue in the old Bass Shoe Factory . The food is excellent. Lots of garlic. Loved it. Good with kids
Awesome brunch. Service is great
Delicious food and atmosphere!
I had the shrimp scampi,it was so good, my friend had the chicken it was great. We will definitely be back. Our waiter was very attentive. Loved the bread. Thanks for a great evening we traveled 2 hrs to get there. Well worth it.
Wow...will come back again and again...best food around, great prices,love the decor and staff is exceptional
