I have been going to Newport for 50 years and I must admit that there are a number of fine restaurants, however this is not one of them. Average at Best! The draw for this street level restaurant is it's outdoor seating on memorial and their Monday through Wednesday Prix-Fixe menu which can not be beat. Don't get the wine... More

The bread is great. In fact that was what attracted me when I was walking the streets looking for a restaurant on a Sunday night in August. A plaque outside said that they were an awarding restaurant. So in I went. I ordered a Cesear salad however they bought out an Italian house salad I think. I said that was... More

This a good venue for Italian food in Newport and is very popular with locals and visitors. They have several dining areas and a large menu. The service is very good and the prices are in line with other good restaurants. They are famous for their meatballs. We think the food here is good when you need a pasta dish... More

Delicious food and very reasonable priced. Back page of the menu features midweek 2 dinners for $16! Wonderful portions and very tasty.

this is by far one of the best italian restaurants on the island. food is fresh, clean appearance, friendly staff. the bread with the olive oil is to die for. They have a bolognese sauce that is no competition for providence truly the best and the lobster ravioli are so fresh they bite you.

We had no reservations for a weekend night and this place seated us right away! The service could have been faster. But, given the quality of food, I wasn't complaining in the end. Would definitely go back (for the risotto) if we are in Newport again.

We've been going up to Newport for more than 20 years and always try and fit in a trip to Sardella's when we can -- usually on the weekends. But, this year we walked up Memorial Blvd. on a Tuesday night and were pleasantly surprised with a fabulous dinner special. Two meals for the $16 (or a little more with... More

We've gone here several times on visits to Newport. Some of their entrees are better than others. But the risotto side dish is always terrific. Combine it with a salad and you'll leave full and satisfied.

We met friends from Rhode Island for dinner here on Wednesday night. We made reservations on Open Table and were seated on the patio promptly at the time we reserved. The restaurant was crowded - hence the noise level was quite high, but I would describe it as "energetic" rather than overwhelming. Our server was delightful and encouraged us to... More

We went on a Wednesday for their dinner special and jazz. Sat in the back room which was so noisy you could even hear the jazz. We asked if we could be moved and were told unfortunately we couldn't. Food was very good especially the appetizer of brochette. On Monday Tuesday and Wednesday they offer two dinners and a bottle... More
