On Dana Street, in the heart of Portland's historic Old Port, Vignola Cinque Terre provides a vibrant atmosphere with a rustic feel. Vignola (est. 2006) and Cinque Terre (est. 2001), originally running as two separate restaurants, joined forces to create an Italian inspired wine bar and dining experience.

Cinque Terre was one of the founders of Portland's farm to table movement.  We still source fresh produce, make our own honey and raise pigs on Grand View Farm in Greene, Maine.  We pride ourselves on sourcing all available products locally and believe it not only makes sense - but tastes better too.  

We make what we can: we butcher fresh whole animals, create charcuterie, make fresh pasta, bake breads and craft our own desserts. Sauces and dressings are prepared daily using fresh herbs from our farm. 

Our wine list is famous for a variety of old world wines and Italian depth to perfectly pair with each carefully crafted dish.
