Food and atmosphere were underwhelming. Bar service was excellent. Restaurant service was good. Siena is much better.

Took my mom and dad out for dinner there.. our first time. And let me say.. I am a food snob so trying out a new restaurant can be traumatic if the food is mediocre. Nice bar area; good service; bartender was very accommodating to our needs. Started with pizza for appetizers; they were VERY good. Had a butternut pasta... More

Just a few miles south of the Crowne Plaza Hotel in East Greenwich on Main St is a very nice Italian restaurant with a wide variety of dining choices, and a fairly priced but limited wine list. The service was excellent and prompt. The restaurant was a bit on the noisy side but balanced with excellent appetizers and main courses.... More

We have dined here many times, as a couple, and with a large family. Food and service are always impeccable. Soups are great. Entrees are wonderful and reasonable priced. I love chicken francaise, my husband prefers Italian, my daughter loves fish, and son-in-law likes beef. We are all satisfied here.

There was 4 of us. We started by sharing grilled pizza for an appetizer which was thin, crispy and yummy. I added a little crushed red pepper which I enjoy. We noticed entree portions looked quite large, so my girlfriend and I split one entree of eggplant parm. It was huge. Absolutely delish. Very light. The guys both got veal... More

We eat at this restaurant several times a month. The food is always excellent. Among our favorites are the meatball Caesar salad, the honey pizza, any sea scallop dish, and the peasant purse pasta. Many of the pasta dishes are available in both half and full orders. Usually there are several specials offered, too.

We eat here often. It's right on Main Street, yet it's not usually very busy which confuses me. The food is always excellent, the staff is friendly, and the restaurant itself is very nice. The seafood and fresh pasta dishes are outstanding. The bone in 1 lb swordfish chop is special. Tonight I had the peppered sea scallops in a... More

My friends and I love going here to sit at the bar and have appetizers. Great service and good food! Always a friendly wait staff and they make yummy martinis. Get the grilled pizza!
