Benvenuti in Itali-ah!

Itali-ah Restaurant & Market serves authentic regional Italian cuisine in the heart of downtown Waterville, Maine, at 74 Main Street, under the sign of the winged lion.

The restaurant features authentic Neapolitan pizza, fresh pasta rolled and cut daily, and a variety of wood-grilled meats, all made according to Italian cooking traditions and techniques. All of our breads are baked in-house, using the finest flours; you’ll taste the difference in our delicious variety of Panini and Tramezzini sandwiches.

Whether you’re looking for a memorable lunch or dinner, Itali-ah is sure to satisfy your craving. We’ve recently added seasonal outdoor dining, so you can enjoy your meal in true al fresco style!

We bake our authentic Neapolitan pizza in our forno artigianale, wood-fired with Maine oak, ash, and beech. Choose from 13 different Italian-inspired pizzas, or create your own from our assortment of fresh ingredients.

Would you like wine with that? We’ve curated a selection of wines from many regions of Italy. We can help you pair a bottle or two with whatever you are enjoying with friends and family.

Our intimate Lego Bar is the perfect spot to meet for a cocktail, glass of wine, or craft beer.

We create our gelato the traditional way, using vintage Carpigiani gelato machines, but with fresh Maine milk and cream!

Our Caffè features Italian coffee classics Espresso and Cappuccino, house-made artisanal gelato, cookies, and a tantalizing array of freshly-made desserts.

Itali-ah’s Market offers genuine Italian food products, imported cured meats and cheeses sliced or cut to order, and a well-curated selection of exclusively Italian wines from every region of Italy.

If you’ve visited Italy, Itali-ah will feel familiar to you. And if you’re still dreaming of going one day, then save yourself the airfare for now and join us here in Itali-ah. It’s Italian with a Maine accent!
