“quick & quiet”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

Panini is delicious. I selected the one with chicken. Very skimpy on the chicken but the focaccia was great.

“No curb appeal but very good Italian”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

FOOD:
The mussels appetizer was delicious and served with a warm baguette.
The salad pleasant.
The pizza is good but the sauces a little sweet and lacking veggies on each piece.
The pasta--Very very Good

STAFF: very friendly and helpful.

ATMOSPHERE:
The curb appeal is terrible but I have heard they are moving. Hopefully, the slower pace will allow the kitchen staff to not serve our salads, bread, and main courses all at the same time. When we asked if we could hold off on our entrees (it had literally been 2-3 minutes) our waiter (very pleasant) responded that the kitchen said it would be bad for the food and asked him to place it on our table. Very disappointing as the tables are cheap and you have no room.

“Excellent pasta!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 via mobile

Yes it's small and can get busy but the food is sooo good. I have eaten here several times and not been disappointed. The lasagne was the best I have had and the arrabiata is amazing. I live on the island and avoid Newport during the summer months but pasta beach can lure me to battle the traffic.

“Good food and nice outdoor seating!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We ate dinner here two nights ago. Had a nice table for two on the outdoor deck overlooking memorial blvd. We shared a prosciutto de Parma pizza and spinach, cream, and garlic penne pasta. The pizza was very good as well as the pasta. Spinach was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The service was also great. Come here for some casual Italian dining!
