“Great meal, 4.5 stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

Best Italian food we've had in a while. Sauces were rich without being overpowering. We've traveled to Italy and this food tastes authentic.

“Superb restaurant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

Very warm and welcoming restaurant, treat you like an honored guest. Homey atmosphere in older home, every wall full of knicknacks. Superb service, polite, attentive, genial. Terrific menu with traditional northern Italian items as well as innovative specials. A whole page of vegetarian dishes! Everything we had (salads, soups, entrees) was topnotch, never had a better tomato sauce anywhere (including Italy)

“A perfect dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2012

This was by far our best restaurant experience in Newport. This is truly an exceptional restaurant. We both started with the mixed field greens salad. For the main dish, my wife had the short rolled egg pasta with vegetarian ragu’ Bolognese sauce. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli with roasted peppers, sage, pine nuts, and a touch of cream. The pasta in both dishes was so fresh and the sauces heavenly. For dessert, we shared a most creative combination of three different sorbet flavors wrapped in a white chocolate shell. Every mouthful of the dinner was a culinary delight. The food was so good we ordered tiramisu as a take-out and that was also most enjoyable. This restaurant is truly a gem. The only issue is that finding parking can be a challenge. Go here. You will not be disappointed.
