The food was just okay. The antipasto ($15) had ONE piece of prosciutto, about 6 olives, some shavings of Parmesan and a few slices of pepperoni. 90% of it was salad greens. Very disappointing. The entrees were fine, but nothing spectacular. They do not take reservations for parties smaller than 6. However, there's no place that's out of the way... More

I eat at Cafe Itri once a month with friends. the service is always very good however the food is nothing special. I like the grilled chicken with pasta in the pink vodka sauce. Last time I was there it came coated and fried instead of grilled. I did not send it back because I wanted to eat with my... More

I love the location of Caffe Itri, right in the heart of the Knightsville community which was celebrating their patronal feast day when we were visiting in July. My pasta dish was very good (pasta is freshly made daily, which is a big plus), with an excellent sauce. Service was friendly and attentive, although it felt a little bit rushed... More

Heard many good things about this restaurant so I thought we would give it a try. Food was simply average. Living in RI where there are many excellent Italian restaurants makes for very discerning guests. While the service was very good, could honestly say there are literally dozens of restaurants in RI serving similar food that is better. There were... More

Until tonight, we hadn't been here in a few years, only because we're usually not in the area. We had a very nice dinner. They have an outdoor dining area that's enclosed with decorative stonewalls, nice lighting, overhead fans, potted plants, and dinner music. We'll be happy to return.

I have been dining at Cafe Itri for several years whenever we visit Rhode Island. It is truly my favorite restaurant there. Both the food and the service are excellent and consistent. The menu is varied and innovative and everything is prepared and presented beautifully. They have a nice wine list and a good bartender. The ambience is warm and... More

My husband and I have been dining here for many years. In the course of those years, we have introduced a number of our friends to Caffe Itri. Our meals and the service have always been pleasant--until now. Tonight, we entered Caffe Itri with an out of town guest. (Our guest is African-American, we are white.) The restaurant was very...

It's always a pleasurable experience for us when my 87 year old father begins his sentence with, "dinners on me this Friday at Cafe Itri!" Being set in his ways he always ends up with a veal dish. The specials are always worth exploring, and don't forget to open a few bottles of wine from their excellent selection. Excellent service... More
