“Tiny spot, wonderful dishes!!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This little place attached to a Dunkin Donuts is a diamond in the rough. Situated around the corner from the Tennis Hall of Fame, you would underestimate the food from looking at the outside of the building. But once you enter and take in the smells, you know you're in the right place. The meat lasagna melted in your mouth and the pasta was homemade and cooked to perfection. Definitely one of the best meals we have eaten in Newport. Prices were average, $18 for the lasagna, $15 for the pasta. Also be sure to have the dessert - it really completed the delicious meal. Wait staff was very slow, they should work on that. But we would definitely go back.

“Good Value”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Pasta Beach is a very small dining spot with pleasant service and wonderful homemade dishes. We ate there one evening and had lunch another day. Our waitress recognized us on the return visit...a nice touch..

“Had high expectations”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

Pasta Beach came recommended by a local. I grew up second generation Italian so had certain expectations. Ordered two glasses of wine. They had neither. Ordered Tagliatelle alla Bolognese. The pasta was tender and plenty of ground beef. But was expecting red sauce. But no. I asked for a ladle of red sauce and was told that it would be an additional charge foe a large side order. No flexibility. I would like to try their pizza but was so p.o.'d by the sauce thing that I won't be going back. If you want Italian, I strongly recommend sardellas. Very accomodating and friendly. And candidly thought the food was better.

“Pizza tasty if a bit thin”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is a nice, casual (no tablecloths) Italian restaurant with good brick oven pizza. The pizza was loaded with veggies and the crust was so thin that it couldn't be held easily to eat, but tasted great. One pizza fed two of us when we were moderately hungry.

“Great Italian Food”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

I'm a local who eats there at least once a week. The food is wonderful, the price is fair and you won't leave hungry.
The chefs and severs are wonderful. Exception one female server who I try to eat around her work schedule. But hey, don't let that influence your decision to eat there, it will be a wonderful experience.
