A new Boothbay Harbor pizzeria will have a distinct Italian flavor. Ports Pizzeria was officially opened Nov. 11 at 28 Union St. by two Italians with decades of experience in the food industry. Sante Calandri has owned Ports of Italy since 2010 and has brought Francesco Mazzone from New York City to Boothbay Harbor as his partner. 

Calandri decided to enter the pizza business last year while searching for seasonal housing for his employees. He bought the former Wok in Grill property which had been vacant for years.

Calandri contacted Mazzone about becoming his partner, and later bought the building.
