Peach sangria was not sweet or fruity tasting. The lobster roll was lobster with scallops and the spices they use left a bad taste in the mouth ( market price was $30?) . More than any we have had all season. Caprese salad was good&...More

A nice find south of Providence. Had seafood risotto (enough for 2) and scallops with red potatoes and asparagus. Both were terrific. We would return to this newer restaurant when nearby....right on the water.
