My Abruzzese family only uses fresh garlic in their cooking and I do not cook with jarred garlic as it is very overpowering. I had the Veal Loretta, and it tasted as though the veal was stewed in mounds of jarred garlic--I could be wrong, but the aftertaste was lingering My wife had pasta and again the garlic overpowered the...

After hearing multiple recommendations and reading positive reviews such a letdown. Made phone reservation with dog for outdoor deck,upon arrival nothing in book and tsk of disapproval from hostess. Young disinterested server who made it clear he disliked sat night rush or maybe missing other social life? Had to ask for butter and no water refills during high seventies temps.... More

This restaurant is very nice and clean. Our appetizer was average (bruschetta) but dinner was very below average. Risotto was not cooked properly at all. They DEEP FRIED a salmon filet (not in description) and a "balsamic glaze" was simply balsamic vinegar poured all over the plate. It's a fairly pricey place and neither of us will return to this...

When we checked into our B & B, they told us that this restaurant had a special tonight (I think Monday and Tuesday nights) so we took their advice and ventured to this place. The restaurant had seating outdoors, friendly staff, the special price was truly a great price, and the food was outstanding. I had the chicken parmesan, which... More

I was looking for a reasonably priced restaurant to cater for a larger family group. Sardella's had mixed reviews but seemed to fit the bill. My experience is that they coped with our party admirably. The orders were taken in a patient way (as one needs to be with large parties), and when delivered all thirteen received our plates in...

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...
