ABOUT ViA VECCHiA
We are a small plates Italian inspired restaurant. Located in the heart of the Old Port in an iconic brick and ivy covered building overlooking cobblestone streets.
Re-imagined for 2020, VV boasts a large wrap around 20 seat bar surrounded by luxurious velvet booths in a warm, energetic atmosphere.
VV will focus on an extraordinary cocktail program combining old world sophistication and new world technique.
Find yourself at the confluence of old world Italy and coastal Maine.
Start your meal with fried artichokes, warm olives, and more from our cicchetti menu, before moving onto our small plate offerings, where buffalo mozzarella joins heirloom tomatoes and Bangs Island mussels meet with pancetta in a lemony unison of flavors.
Local Maine clams and lemon caper butter converge with homemade bucatini, alongside classic pork and beef bolognese lumache and other handmade pasta dishes. Savor Italian staples such as risotto and pork Milanese on our large plates menu, all paired perfectly with our robust craft cocktail and Italian wine selection.
