Thanks to trip advisor for getting us there. Cioppino is very good, but Cioppino House in Pleasant Hill is better. Very tasty and rich oysters. Well worth a visit.

This is a great casual place to get fresh seafood in the old harbor of Newport. The food is delicious and well priced, and the service is excellent. Be sure to try the curry with clear broth.
