2 of us went her for dinner on a weeknight. Parking during the summer is difficult as the side streets are restricted to residents. After circling around a few times we luckily got one of the 4-5 parking spots in the tiny restaurant lot behind the building. Stairs are a little steep going to the upper dining area. Restaurant is... More

The waitress knew everything on the menu and was accurate and fair when giving advice. The food was excellent we tried pasta and meat dishes and everything was great! They were flexible enough to make modifications to attend our 3 kids! Overall great experience! Will come back!

I've been here 3 or 4 times over the last few years and every time it has been the best Italian meal I've ever had. I get the spaghetti carbonara and it's one of the best things I've ever eaten in general. I can't bring myself to get anything else because it's so good, but I've tried bites of my... More

This place has great authentic Italian food. The ambience was perfect, a very homey atmosphere. Service was outstanding from the moment we walked through the door. You will need to make reservations for this place as it is always full. We can't wait to go back and try more dishes.

On a recent visit to Newport my husband and I chose this restaurant because of the trip advisor reviews. We were not disappointed! It was a rather warm night and although the air conditioner was not on we were seated by the windows which we were able to open. The room we were in was very cozy and romantic. My... More

On an extremely hot day in june air conditioning should be turned on at least an hour before diners arrive. We had an overly attentive waitress who would not leave us alone. The meal was very good, the wine was reasonable. This would have been a very good review, but with the air not on until half way thru my... More

This was a very nice Italian restaurant in Newport. The veal entrée was very good, but my wife said her pasta was just average. the setting was nice, out of the main, busy area of Newport. Their wine list was very good and was reasonably priced. We had a very nice waitress, but the service dropped off as the meal... More

We came in to celebrate our anniversary and enjoyed some great food. Everything was cooked perfectly. We were there with our parents and 16mo old son - I probably wouldn't bring him back but they took good care of him.

This quaint and charming old house turned restaurant has been a MUST EAT every time we go to Newport. The service is perfection, atmosphere is like eating in your Nonni's house! A real taste of old Italy and the food, well if you like Italian this is the place to eat!
