Louie's is located at 86 Pleasant St in the heart of downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We are a rustic Italian restaurant; and in the spirit of the Italian tradition we use the ingredients around us to create comfortable, inviting and creative food. We make pasta every day and strongly suggest you make a point to try one of our pastas during your time with us.  

We have a thoughtful wine selection. In our larger dining room that seats 75, you can view our custom built wine room. The red wines are stored at a comfortable 62 degrees and our whites wines are stored at 49 degrees. Our 40 seat dining room is also home to our bar, where the full menu is also available at one of our 14 bar seats.  The bar program focuses on well balanced and carefully made drinks with an emphasis on Italian vermouths and digestivos.  

Experience table side service with choices from our cheese cart or amaro cart, and if youre simply in the mood for a smaller bite we offer a la carte meat and cheese selections. 


For your convenience, we offer valet parking services on Friday and Saturday
