Had a Sunday night dinner at Sardella's in late June. It was fairly busy but no wait for a nice outdoor table. The food was very good, but the waitress, while very sweet, needed some training: ---unused place settings were never removed ---bread was not brought until waitress reminded ---empty glasses were not removed.... just piled up ---main course was...

I have a summer home in Newport and I have been going here for years. I cannot believe the decline in food and portions. Notice I have reviewed this restaurant in the past. I have given it high ratings. But they must have inexperienced people in the kitchen now and who knows if the owner is around. I always see... More

This was the 4th time my husband and I ate at this restaurant. We sat on the patio, greeted right away by a wonderful attentive waiter. I ordered the lasagna which was amazing, my husband got some chicken dish that was incredible. We always have had the best luck at this restaurant, which was recommended by my parents who went...

This place has excellent Monday and Tuesday night specials with wine included for under 30 bucks for two..Well worth it. They have jazz onWednesday night. I would go to Mama Luisa for far superior Italian, Pasta Beach is popular as well but Mama Luisa on Thames is the best.

Sardella's has great food with reasonable prices and a good atmosphere inside or out. We have never had a bad meal here and look forward to each visit. My husband loves veal and ordered their special last night which he said was the best veal dish he has ever had. If you are looking for a true Italian dish Sardella's... More

Excellent rustic Italian cuisine with delicious specialty drinks (Limoncello martini!). Great spot for a romantic dinner. We are still talking about how good the food was!

This is the best restaurant in Newport! The food is excellent, the service is great, and the atmosphere is lovely. Even though it is not on the water, their is lovely outdoor seating. I ordered the "Cioppino", which included an assortment of seafoods over a bed of linguine. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to seafood lovers!

Sorry but this very busy restaurant simply caters to those who either care not for the quality of the food served or the overly packed in like sardines atmosphere. The food is nearly inedible and the house wine for sur is undrinkable. Such a shame Perrinis closed, now there are no good restaurants on this side of Memorial Blvd.

We had the 2 for $28 special. Entrees for 2 and a bottle of house selected wine. Great price for Newport. Or anywhere. The server was great. He treated us like we were ordering filet mignon. The food was okay. At that price you aren't getting filet mignon. More like pasta and. I had manicotti. 2 tubes baked in a... More

We felt like we were in a nice, quaint, friendly Italian restaurant that you would find in a little Italy section of a town. Ample proportions, attentive and very friendly staff and good menu choices of traditional Italian dishes. Love the foods and atmosphere. This is the perfect place for real Italian food-not the artificial gourmet stuff that some try... More
