This is a small family owned restaurant. It serves some of the BEST Italian food that I've ever tasted. You must try this place. You WILL NOT be disappointed.

Tiny, ridiculously overpriced portions of flavorless, rubbery slop dished out by a grumpy hag in a filthy, lightless, dank, broken-down, gloomy dungeon. What a disgrace to Italian cuisine! What a dump! And speaking of dumps, a full day later, I still had the Hershey squirts. True story.

Ate at this restaurant about three years ago, and it was great. Was in Newport the week of September 8th this year, and could not wait to go back. Big mistake. Shrimp scampi was horrible. Shrimp was like rubber, and the entire dish had no flavor. My friend's lasagna was cold in the center. Clearly pre-prepared and microwaved. Complained to... More

New staff due to a death in the family. Breaking in a new chef and wait crew. Suspect improvement will return to excellent given time. Right now, just not up to snuff.

Good herbs and spices in the spaghetti made it an exceptional dish. Meatballs and sausage were hand made and hand seasoned, the sausage with a bit of fennel seed. Intriguing flavors kept it from being ordinary or predictable. Poached pears for dessert, wonderful finish. May have to go again very soon. The chef came out to check on us and... More

We went early (5:30) were seated and given water and gave our order. There were 2 other customers in the place. It took 30 minutes for our salads, which were acceptable but not special. The bread was the worst I've ever had...cold, a hard cheese layer on stale bread of undetermined vintage. Not even butter helped this mess.The server did... More

My family was staying in Newport and our last night we couldn't decide what we wanted.. Happened upon this place! It's almost one of those places you wouldn't know was there if you didn't walk by. Kinda hidden. We ordered take out and couldn't of been more impressed! We got baked ziti, manicotti and kids spaghetti. All perfectly cooked! Salad... More

We've been to this quaint little restaurant/book store for a few years in a row now. The food itself is actually very good with homemade spaghetti sauce that is wonderful. Unfortunately both times we had to wait 3-4 hours to eat (and that's after we were seated). When the food finally did come it was cold. I understand with the... More

Don't let the outside or the neighborhood make you pass up this dining experience. If you don't mind eating in an old bookstore, with plastic table cloths and mismatched furniture, you will get a very good meal. Our server, Chelsey, was delightful and efficient. I had linguini with clams, and everything was cooked perfectly. The salad was fresh and the... More
