Favorite Italian was Puerini's....now they are gone so Mama Louisa is #1. Sardella's is very popular but I've never likes it as much.

The only place that might qulify as a steakhouse is 22 Bowens. Very good steaks with high-end steakhouse prices to match. The rest of the menu is also excellent and is not as expensive. Also sometime in November I think they start offering a three course seasonal menu for $20 which is one of the best deals in town

I agree with RRick- 22 Bowens is probably the best for a decent steak- or maybe the fine dining side of the Black Pearl- both $$$ but dependably good food properly cooked.

Good Italian- Pasta Beach food is awesome- atmosphere so-so-sit at the counter if possible- it sometimes is overrun with kids- if so leave and try it another night- the food is authentic,incredible and servings are good sized.

Lucia's is a gem- small and off season you can actually say- 'you tell ME whats good and they will create a dish- a great experience (don't try it on a weekend) Avoid Sardella's if you're a foodie- nice atmosphere-a local hangout- but as for authentic italian- forget it-overcooked pasta every time

The best steak in Newport is definitely 22Bowen. We go for special occasions as it is costly but the delmonico steak cannot be beat IMHO!!! Always excellent service, extensive wine list, and very nice views from a table on the second floor in the scull room. Servers and management do a terrific job here and it shows!

Mama Louisa is very nice but in my opinion, if I were going to Newport as a tourist, I would not look for Italian.

As locals, we treasure Scales and Shells for fresh fish, Brick Alley for good pub food, 22 Bowen for great steaks, the Moorings for a bag of doughnuts and anything else on the menu, Castle Hill for great food with a great view, Marina Cafe for a good lunch with a great view ( summer only), Jane Pickens Theater for a fun, funky place to go see a movie, and JH Breakell for beautiful jewelry made in Rhode Island, Save the Bay for wintertime seal tours............there now I've said it all!!
