My husband and I stopped by on a Monday night for their weekday dinner special: 2 entrees and a bottle of wine for $28. I got pizza while my husband ordered the chicken parm, both were very good! We would definitely stop by for this special again. (The tiramisu was also excellent!)

We normally go to Mama Luisa's when in Newport, but decided to try something new this time. Lovers of Italian food the 4 of us headed to Sardellas. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was packed. We had a reservation and were seated within minutes. After ordering drinks we placed our meal orders. I would never normally order... More

Full disclosure, 21 years ago on Christmas Eve I took my then girlfriend to Sardella's before I proposed to her….my wife and I have been coming here regularly ever since and have NEVER had a bad experience or bad meal. Great attention to detail from the food on your plate to the dinning room decor to the background music. Staff... More

My second visit to Sardella's and I wasn't let down at all! It was a Valentines night and I had been there with my girlfriend! Oh man! they have great food..I had ordered the double tiered moz sticks. Man, they were yummy! Trust me this is coming from a person who hates Marinara sauce. I just loved the sauce there.... More

Been coming here for YEARS, mostly on Wednesdays. Their dinner special is crazy - dinner for 2 with a bottle of wine for $28. Yep, no lie. There are a dozen dinner choices on the special and if you don't want the wine, then dinner for 2 is $16. Seriously, you have to go there. The jazz emsemble is wonderful... More

Had dinner here on a snowy Saturday with my wife & daughter. The service was prompt & courteous and the food served hot and full of Italian flavor. I had the Steamed Little Necks over pasta which was great only wished that there were more clams either in or out of the shell.

good place to try for dinner. Lots of seating and service was very polite. Our meals didn't take long to come out and the portions were very big. I got chicken parm and it was delicious. A little pricey for pasta/chicken but it was delicious none the less.

We love this restaurant and recommend it to anyone who is traveling to Newport! My husband and I have been going to Newport, RI for over 33 years, once we discovered Sardella's we ate there every visit that we make. Our friends love it too, we told them about it and now they go every time they're in the area.... More

Went with a group of five and had above average service but found the food mediocre/average as this has been highly recommended by others on TripAdvisor. Expensive for an average meal in the loud back room with other large parties.
